Hi I'm Connor Brooks Benson

I'm from a small town in Utah. I was raised on a small farm. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently preparing to serve a mission in southern Asia. I like being outdoors, anything from hunting, to riding ATVs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Mormon, but the point I truly became converted to the true gospel of Jesus Christ was when my older brother passed away. He was only 23 years old and he was my best friend. Ever since his passing I've wanted to believe that God lives and that our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ lives too, and that if I'm obedient to them, I'll be able to see my brother again. That idea that we can be reunited with our loved ones is just one cornerstone of the foundation of my faith in this Church. I've gained a testimony of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and though I've had to endure some very hard trials of faith and have had feelings of doubt, I can't deny my testimony.

How I live my faith

I've been part of 2 different youth counsel groups that planned and conducted devotionals. I've taught Sunday school lessons in a Young Single Adult ward as part of my calling. I am also preparing to serve a mission.
