Hi I'm Ian Bennett

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful woman who helps me be a better man. We have seven children and lots of grandchildren.We live in the Arizona desert . I worked as a lineman for a power company until I retired. Some of the things I like are exercising every day,I built my own telescope and like to look at the heavens,I take photos of beautiful things like sunsets and mountains and like to share them.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormons and taught me the gospel as I was growing up. We went to Church regularly but I still had to find out for myself if the Mormon Church was the Church of Jesus Christ restored to the earth. I read The Book Of Mormon,prayed and pondered and come to know the truth by the whisperings of the Holy Spirit. I know by the whisperings of The Holy Spirit that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and that they love me and you. This brings me great happiness.

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures and my favorite scriptures are in The Book Of Mormon. To keep from missing daily scripture reading I read them first thing after getting up in the morning. I have read The Book Of Mormon over thirty times and feel the spirit each time I read . I am still learning things from reading the scriptures. I enjoy visiting and teaching the home teaching message to the families I am assigned to home teach. I have found that living the teachings of Jesus Christ bring me peace and happiness.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Ian Bennett
I look at the heavens through a telescope I made myself and see the wonders that God has created. I look at people and recognize that they are so wonderful, so complex, so beautiful and capable of so much that they must have been created by our Heavenly father. The wonders and beauty of the earth tells me there is a God who is our loving Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
