Hi I'm Ben

I'm from Idaho. I love sports, especially basketball and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I was born in Southern California, but grew up in Idaho. I really enjoy being with my family. Even my parents. They are actually really cool. And Its always a competition when my brother and I do anything together. I played basketball and football in high school. But I broke my back which ended my football career. But I still really enjoy playing basketball whenever I get a chance. Right now I'm serving a mission in Philly, and I am loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was raised in the church. My family was always active, and I went to church every week. I always went to the youth activities and enjoyed it all most of the time. But I still had to find out for my self if this church was true. There never really was a single event where all of a sudden I knew... but over the years of being in the church, I have developed a strong testimony. Because of the great example of my parents, friends, and many church leaders, I was able to see how the gospel truly makes you happy. I am Mormon because I have lived by the teachings of the church, they have made me happy, and I know that they are true.  

How I live my faith

 Right now I live my faith by being a full time missionary in the Philadelphia area. I study frequently from the scriptures and try my best to apply and live the things that I learn. I love to be able to help other people and take every opportunity to provide service.  

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

 Its true... Our Heavenly Father has promised that He will never lead anyone the wrong way. And anyone who really is looking for the truth will find it in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Show more Show less
