Hi I'm Calvin Bennion

I grew up in Sandy, Utah (USA). I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am 18. I played lacrosse in high school. I am also interested in photography. I love Disney, Cars and Tarzan are my favorites. I plan on attending the University of Utah and going into medicine when I return home from my Mission (Kampala, Uganda). I am the second oldest in my family, and the oldest son. Mom & Dad, sister, me, sister & brother (twins).

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family. I have regularly attended all three hours of church each week. I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of this church. which I have acquired From scripture study, attending church, service, and prayer. As well as having Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Repenting, being Baptized + Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. I am Mormon because it is the way God wants me to live my life, and I know this by the blessing I have received. I love this church, and want others to know of the happiness it can bring them and their families. That is why I chose to serve a mission.

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures! The Book of Mormon guides my life, I know that it is the Word of God. And it Brings me closer to Christ every time I read. I have Served in many calling in the church, I helped plan activities for youth, while I was a youth. I also helped other is my age group magnify their callings and their priesthood. I Served in leadership positions for my age groups. I exercise Faith in Jesus Christ through my obedience in following his example and his commandments. I am not perfect, so I often find myself on my knees in repentance. I know that through the Atonement of our Savior he can help us through anything. I was Baptized to show my Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement. I also sought after the companionship (or Gift) of the Holy Ghost to lead and guide me in my life. I also plan to act on my faith and to continue to grow closer to my Father in Heaven, and my Savior AND Redeemer Jesus Christ throughout all my life. I love this Gospel, it is the full gospel of Jesus Christ.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Calvin Bennion
Our father in heaven has a perfect plan for us. A plan for us to all return to heaven and live with him. This plan required a savior to attone for our sins. God sent his son Jesus Christ to be our savior (John 3:16) through Christs attonment and sincere repentence we are forgiven for our wrong doings (Mosiah 4:6). to sincerely repent, we: ■Confess the sin to both God and anyone who has been harmed by our sin. In cases of serious sin, confession needs to be made to the proper priesthood authority. ■Ask forgiveness from God and from anyone we have harmed. ■When possible, repair the damage we have done. ■Forsake our sins. ■Strive to keep the commandments This is out our father asks of us conserning our sins. And without a loving savior, it would not be possible. Show more Show less
