Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Utah, have 8 brothers and sisters, have the best family ever and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and am from South Jordan, UT. I am someone who loves life and try to live it to the fullest. I have been blessed with a wonderful family, (2 wonderful parents with 9 kids) I have 6 brothers and of course we are all sports fans and try to play a good basketball game on the weekend when we are all together. Currently I am serving a mission for the church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have come to love the area here and the people. It has been a great time for me to figure out who I am and realize what the Gospel of Jesus Christ can do for everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

A lot of people ask me this question on why I am a Mormon.. Well to be honest I grew up involved in the Church. My Father and Mother were both members of the church, and ever since we were young we would go to church each week. Nothing really appeared to me until my Senior year in High School when i decided it's about time for me to make my own decision on this religion or not. Being the kid that I was, my outlook on life changed. I was able to read from the Book of Mormon and realize what is in that book of scripture and asking God for myself if the contents that are in there are true or not. Of course I recieved my answer and that is why I decided to serve the Lord as a full-time missionary. I absolutely love this work and have seen what it can do for each person and of course for myself. I love the Gospel with my whole heart, even though sometimes I make mistakes. That part will never take away my testimony that I know that God has given us a modern day prophet and continues to give us the direction we need as we go throughout our life. Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and I know that He is the only way we can return to live with God.

How I live my faith

I think the biggest way that I am living my faith is by serving a mission for the Church right now. So that others may have the happiness and joy that I have as well as other members of the church have. I am not perfect by any means but as I strive to live to the best of my ability in keeping the commandments and keeping church standards, I know that everything in life will be better.
