Hi I'm Benjamin Patrick H.

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ!

About Me

I'm going to be a father at the end of July and I'm extremely excited! I have the most precious wife in the world and I'm convinced she's an angel. I have four years left of school before I graduate with a Masters degree, and then I want to join the Military and become a Chaplain. The greatest joy I've found in my life has been in serving others with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

A few years ago I sat in my parents bedroom alone with my dying brother. As he and I spoke for the last time, I learned of the great and abiding love he had for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. He spoke of the many blessings he had received throughout his life and concluded with a heartfelt testimony, which has greatly impacted my life. Even though I had previously received a witness for my self concerning the eternal truths of which he bore witness of, it wasn't until then that my testimony of God the Father and Jesus Christ became a reality, a living reality. Through the convincing power of the Holy Ghost, I received a pure revelation which touched the deepest parts of my heart. From that experience, I boldly declare that I know, as surly as I know that I live, that we are loved and cherished by Divinity. I am a member of this church because I have been given an assurance that I can one day be reunited with my loved ones.

How I live my faith

I have a wonderful responsibility to watch over a few families in our congregation and to make sure their needs are taken care of, both spiritually and physically. Every member has this responsibility. One of the families I watch over recently had a baby and needed some help around the house. As I was there helping them out, another family came to the door with dinner. This is how I and many others live our faith. We help strengthen each other through love and service.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Benjamin Patrick H.
We will come to know our Father in Heaven when gratitude is at the forefront of our minds. There is a special power that enters the heart of man when he can recognize to whom he owes all he has and is. Show more Show less

Which of the Savior’s teachings have influenced you in your life?

Benjamin Patrick H.
The Savior taught, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love they neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22: 36-40) This teaching has greatly impacted my life. I have seen the power love can have in softening peoples hearts. Show more Show less
