Hi I'm Ben Nielsen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Master's student at Brigham Young University, in Instructional Psychology and Technology. In my day job I am a social media manager at a non-profit. Someday I would like to be a teacher. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Meagan, for about a year and a half. We love to have fun together. I enjoy reading, writing, blogging, working with technology, and skating. Several years ago I served a mission for the church in Pennsylvania. It was one of the very best experiences of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a Mormon because I believe this is the truth with all my heart, nothing is more important to me than this gospel. When I was a teenager I took time to find out if the Book of Mormon was really a testament of Jesus Christ and the word of God to man. It was really important to me at that time to know, and I received my answer by the Holy Ghost that it was true. That knowledge has shaped the choices I've made thus far in my life.

How I live my faith

Its not always easy to do what is right, but I try to do my best and fix the mistakes I make because I know that Christ has made my return to God possible. I love the quote that says "live so that others will know Christ through you" I try to live that way.
