Hi I'm Stephen Bennett

My name is Stephen Bennett. I live in Harrisonburg, Virginia and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love dancing and music. I play the Alto Saxophone and the Tuba. I enjoy running, exercise, biking, and outdoor activities such as hiking and water tubing. I just finished my first year of college and I loved it! At the moment, I am majoring in Emergency Services Management. I installed a flag pole at my church building for my Eagle Scout project and I recently became an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Church is true. I know it because I read the Book of Mormon. Through the Atonement and scripture study, the Spirit testified the truth of the gospel to me. I am a Mormon because the gospel has and continues to bring me true joy. I know that Jesus Christ lives and I know that He loves each and every one of us. I know that the gospel was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith and that Thomas S. Monson is called of God and he is the prophet today. I know that through the Book of Mormon, everyone can come to know of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I just came back from school, so I do not have a calling yet. At school I taught a Sunday school class and I was a home teacher. As a Sunday school teacher, I taught lessons based on our church's doctrines and principals. As a home teacher, my purpose was to build friendships with the people I home taught and to provide for any needs they had. Once a month, my roommate and I would go and teach a short lesson and see how the guys were doing and help them in any way we could. In October, I will be leaving to serve a mission for my church in Curitiba, Brazil for two years. During those two years I will teach and invite all to come unto Christ.

Are Mormons Christians?
