Hi I'm Hunter Bennett

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in dental school in Glendale, Arizona at Midwestern University. This is where I was born and raised but never would have guess that I'd end up here for my dental education. I married Lacy Joy Gibb in March of 2011, and now we have our first child, Riggins.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. At times, being a member of the church can seem difficult for a young because of the peer pressure applied during the most crucial years of development. However, in retrospect, I'm so grateful that church's standards protected me from the harsh consequences of poor teen decisions. I basically always liked going to church. I have been blessed with sacred experiences that have confirmed to me that Jesus is the Christ, that He loves me, and that this is restored gospel on the earth. The biggest part of my conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ is my study of the Book of Mormon, which testifies of Christ. I truly believe that Joseph Smith was a modern day prophet just like those described in the Bible. God always spoke to man through a prophet, and I believe that He continues to use that same pattern today. I have felt strong impressions as I study the Book of Mormon. The spiritual witness that I receive when I read and pray confirms to me that I'm in the right place. The gospel is simple, when I am obedient I am happy, and when I disobey, I am not happy. I'm grateful for the gospel in my life and for the happiness that it brings into my life. I believe that I'll be able to be with my beautiful wife and family forever.

How I live my faith

The best way I know how to live my faith is by being genuinely interested in the well-being of others and looking beyond my own needs in order to serve those around me. Sometimes this requires doing things that cause me to stretch and grow and while I don't always enjoy the process, I enjoy the feelings of peace that reassure me that I'm doing the right thing.
