Hi I'm Benjamin

I am a small-town boy who likes thinking and creating. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a recently married college student with a beautiful wife and a lot of hobbies. I'm a starting piano player, with an interest in singing and music theory. I love doing anything that creates beauty, no matter how much frustration it takes to get to it :) Because of that, I like music, photography (not enough small muscle control for other kinds of visual art), making furniture, painting, clothes, anything. I'm excited to discover what my career is going to be and more excited to start a life with my wonderful wife and (hopefully) soon a few kids too :P

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of this church, my being generations of members and my dad being a convert. With that background I learned the importance of discovering the truth for yourself, as well as the necessary steps to continue to have experiences that confirm what you have already felt. I followed the promise stated in the end of the Book of Mormon, that if you pray and ask with a sincere heart and real intent, the Lord will make it known unto you whether or not it is true- and from that moment I have striven to follow the gospel and have felt nothing but happiness and peace in return.

How I live my faith

Love and help for others have always been key points of focus for me. I am not perfect, but I find that when I help others, be it something as simple as a kind word or as involved as a renovation or helping fix a car, it always makes me feel better. I know that the Lord is happy with me for helping my brother- because I know He loves them just as much as I, and that we both benefit from it.
