Hi I'm Ben Broadhead

I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Massachusetts Boston mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I was raised in the church, but did not develop a knowledge or testimony of it's teachings until I was about 18 years old. I grew up living in between my divorced parents, who were divorced when I was 8 years old, and was not strongly influenced to go to or participate in church. Throughout my teenage years, I attended church every so often, but still struggled to find true happiness. I found later that the only way to obtain such happiness was to know of my purpose here, where I was going, and to have faith that I was in my situation for a reason. It was when I decided to ask God himself if the church is true, that I received an answer that testified to me that it is.

Why I am a Mormon

 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has offered me solace in hard times. The truth of this gospel gives me hope for the rest of my life here on Earth and also beyond this life. I am a member of this Church because I feel the Spirit here and love of God, our Heavenly Father. I've found nothing in the teachings of this church that conflict with any true teachings of our Lord, and I know it is the Church established by Jesus Christ Himself. I know also that by living it's teachings, I can overcome the challenges in my life and set straight the path that my future children can follow. Being a good father and husband when the time comes is very important to me, and knowing I will be able to live with my family forever after this life if I keep God's commandments and apply the Atonement of Christ gives me comfort and hope for the life after this. 

How I live my faith

 I do my best to follow the commandments Heavenly Father has established for our own salvation, commandments that were revealed to us through prophets called of God. I know that by following these commandments, I can be happy in this life and look forward to living with my family for eternity. I am currently serving a mission in the Massachusetts Boston mission, teaching in the Haitian Creole language.
