Hi I'm Shayne Anthony Bennett

Aspiring comedy writer. Student at Utah State University. Lover of the strange. Viva L'Italia! I'm a Latter-Day Saint!

About Me

I am an aspiring writer of comedy and jotter-downer of poetry. A master of music knowledge, frequent guitar player, a hopeful scholar at beautiful Utah State University and enjoy all that is yet to come. I am a Latter-Day Saint and have been blessed with a fortunate life. It is beautiful when you can make someone laugh genuinely and love even deeper. I will continue to do what I can to work on the craft I have chosen.

Why I am a Mormon

While man has the ability to change human behavior, the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to change human nature. Through living the Gospel and keeping all of the Commandments that our loving Heavenly Father has set for us, I bear witness that we can achieve peace in this life and will be promised blessings in the life to come. I know that He lives. He knows and loves every one of us. His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, overcame the bands of death so that we may overcome them as well. I love Him. I know that this is the O.G. (Original Gospel); the exact same church that Christ himself organized during his ministry on earth and ordained the original Twelve Apostles to the Priesthood. I believe that Joseph Smith brought the Book of Mormon forth from the dust of the earth and was able to translate it only by the gift and power of God. That, I cannot deny. In the sacred name of Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the California Sacramento Mission. This experience has enriched my view of human nature and my love of all of Heavenly Father's children. I know that through obedience we are able to participate in being a true disciple of the Savior, Jesus Christ. Daily study of the scriptures, personal prayer, and keeping the commandments of God are just a few of the tools we have been given to establish peace among mankind. I know that by these small and simple things are great things brought to pass. My testimony of how I live my faith and my life is in the way the Savior, Jesus Christ, led his.
