Hi I'm Courtney Bennett

I'm an Idaho girl. I love to run, cook, and spend time with family. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Sister to three, daughter to two, cousin to many, college student, runner, reader, conversation enthusiast, food blog addict, lover of all things Mexico.

Why I am a Mormon

Having grown up with a father suffering from mental illness, I have always found peace and comfort in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It promises that no matter how unfair and difficult this life can be, Heavenly Father will always answer our prayers and Christ will always be there to heal our broken hearts. Because of the Gospel I know that there is a bright future ahead for me and for all of God's children if we turn to Him and live according to His commandments. Sometimes life brings us excruciating pain, but there is one who always understands: our Savior and brother, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live the type of life that Jesus Christ lived. I believe that religion is a way of life, a path to becoming more like the Savior. Every day I try to live as He would have me live by being kind, patient, considerate, etc. I'm very imperfect at it, but I try!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Courtney Bennett
Mormons, like everyone, experience joy, disappointment, pain, success, and failure in this life. We love our families and desire to live with them forever. We are grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and try to emulate the life of the Savior. We're far from perfect, but we do our best. Being a Mormon doesn't mean just going to church on Sunday. We live our religion every second of every day through what we do, what entertainment we choose, what we eat... everything! When we are obedient to the commandments of the Lord we are happy, so you'll often see us smiling :) Show more Show less
