Hi I'm Ben

I'm an aspiring leader in healthcare. I love singing Russian folk songs. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my wife and little boy and have fun learning and growing with them. I enjoy exploring new cultures and meeting new people. Life has so much to offer and each day is a fresh opportunity. The field of healthcare provides me with an exciting challenge where I can impact lives for good. Someday my dreams might take me into international health, but for now I'm focused on contributing to the local healthcare system.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because God has confirmed the truthfulness of this church to me through His Holy Spirit. Such impressions lead me through life. The Spirit's communication with me is difficult to explain, but is recognizably divine. I've also observed the many good fruits of the church's labors; it's a church that truly enables men to come unto Christ and be transformed by Him. I find strength, peace, love, and direction in Christ and His church has allowed me to draw nearer to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving every day to follow God's will and Christ's example. In order to live this way I've found it essential to try to come nearer to God on a daily basis. I do this every day by studying the scriptures, praying often, and seeking opportunities to serve others. I also participate with my family in daily scripture study and family prayers. I attend church services every week and visit fellow church members in their homes on a monthly basis to share a spiritual message and help with any needs. I currently serve my local congregation in a role where I help share the gospel with non-members and recently converted members. Although some might think my faith requires too much time and commitment, it is percisely these efforts that have blessed my life with joy and purpose. As I dedicate myself to the gospel, God blesses me with success in all areas of my life.
