Hi I'm Ben

I'm a full time university student, a husband and a father, I love the outdoors... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 31 years old. My wife and I have been married for 4 years, and we have 2 beautiful daughters. I live on the central coast of Queensland. I have worked in warehouses and clerks offices for most of the last 10 years but now I am almost finished a 4 year double bachelor degree in business and accounting.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ, His atonement and his teachings. I believe that God loves us all, individually. I believe that he wants us, his children, to love him too. I believe that following the prophet helps me love God more wholly and when I am obedient, I feel closer to Him. I love being a Mormon because I find only truth in the teachings.

How I live my faith

As part of my calling I am responsible for helping to make the Lords house is a house of order. It is one of my duties to be sure that no one gets forgotten. I have found it is a beautiful thing when we are able to find local members who didn't know where to turn to for support and have been just waiting for someone to reach out to them. I served a mission and was blessed to be able to serve others every day.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Ben
 I can't imagine my life without my wife. She is one of my greatest influences for growth and happiness. She helps me to be the best I can be. When we were married, it wasn't just for this life, but by the power of God, a person holding the Priesthood authority sealed us "for time and all eternity". We had to promise that we would be faithful in keeping Gods commandments to receive that blessing, but all of those commandments come with blessings of their own too. We feel as though we are being blessed in duplicate. I know that eternal families are an essential part of Gods plan.   Show more Show less
