Hi I'm Beau Bennett

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Beau Bennett. I live in Utah. I have always been very athletic growing up. Doing recreation basketball and baseball is what I did when I was younger. Then as I got older, I got into swimming and playing water polo and that is where I found my passion. Swimming in high school was awesome! Sometimes I believe that I swim better then I can walk. Ha! With that said, I love being in the water. I have my eagle scout and I love serving others. During the winter months you often need to pull out the snow blower and get to work. I myself prefer doing it with a shovel, so when it snows I love waking up early and shoveling driveways for my neighbors before they wake up. Right now, I am serving a mission in the Canada, Vancouver mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I said, I have always been a member of the church but there comes a time for everyone where you run into the wall of faith. Despite the religion you might be a part of, there comes a time where you have to decide for yourself if what you have learned is true. There are only two choices in religion. Either the church you belong to is true or it is not. With that said, I ran into my wall of faith when I was about 16. I was getting hit from every side about going on a mission. All of my aunts, uncles, siblings, friends, co-workers, and other associates wanted to know if I was preparing for a mission. My response was a very uncertain "yes". I knew it was something I have always looked forward to growing up and something I was working towards. I just never thought the time would come that I would have to make the decision to leave my family and friends for 2 years.

How I live my faith

Growing up I have always been a member of the church. In deacons, teachers and priests I went from being the secretary to being the president within a few months. It seemed to be that pattern through priests. Then once I became an elder, I decided to move to a singles ward. There I learned many skills that have helped me. Within two weeks of being in the YSA ward I became the FHE Co-Chair where I organized activities each Monday for the young single adults to take part of. Then after that calling I became the Assistant Executive Secretary, then the 1st counselor in the Elders Quorum. All of these callings have taught me many things that helped grow me into the person I am today.
