Hi I'm Adrianne Bennett

I am a college student studying dental hygiene. I have been called to the Italy Milan Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and loved every moment of it. I love my family and my friends and spending time with them. I like helping others and providing service to those in need. I love to cook, sew, and putting together puzzles with my dad. I am a college student studying dental hygiene. I have put my education on hold and am currently serving in the Italy Milan mission. What a joy it has been for me to serve my Lord and to invite others to come unto Christ. I feel so very blessed to be a part of the wonderous work that is happening.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I had been told all of my life that this was the true church, I didn't question it until I was in my teenage years. I had those thoughts thinking, "Is this really true or have I been blindly following what my parents taught me?" I came upon the conclusion that I needed to learn for myself whether or not this was the true church restored to the earth today. Through prayer, scripture study, and fasting I have had many experiences that have given me the conviction that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and has suffered for each and every person who has ever or who will ever live upon this earth, and has provided a way for us to return to our Heavenly Father. I cannot explain the love that I have for Him. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been restored to the earth by the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. By reading, we can come to understand what our Heavenly Father wants for us. I know that we have been put into our families for a reason, that they are there to help and strengthen us. Most of all, I know that my Heavenly Father knows us all personally and loves us unconditionally no matter what we have done or gone through.

How I live my faith

I make sure that the people around me are doing well and try to help others who are in need. When at college, unlike some of my other peers, I continued to go to church even if it meant going by myself. I continued serving by fulfilling the callings I had received. I also live my faith by serving a full time mission in Milan, Italy. I decided to go on a mission, not because I was told that I should, but because I wanted to bring the truth to all and to serve others.
