Hi I'm Lionell Bennett
I am a husband and father of three daughters and a son, and grandfather of nine. All of their families are active in the gospel. This is a wonderful blessing to me. Family has always been important to me. I try to encourage them to keep the commandments as they encourage me to. I worked for a large food manufacturing corporation for 33 years and now I work in a local college bookstore. What a change?
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up with attending the church. My mother was instrumental in my activity until I was able to understand the teachings of the church and gain a testimony for myself.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
Attending church helps me to be a better person and it gives me a little fuel for the coming week. Some people feel that churches are are just full of imperfect people. Well, you know they are correct! Hospitals are full of sick people! No one minds going to a hospital if they think it might help them get better. That's kinda how I feel about church - it can help me be better each day.
How I live my faith
The Church helps me understand ways that I can learn more about our Savior's gospel and live by the things that I learn. And to become a better example to my family and friends.
