Hi I'm Ben

I'm an entrepreneur. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm very happily married and we just had our first child, a baby girl who is wonderfully happy and who gives me a big smile (almost) every time she sees me. My wife and I have a fairly different situation than most people. When we got married, we started working together on a web-based business out of our apartment. This lets us spend every day together. And I love her more every day! I enjoy playing basketball, although I get injured far too frequently to stay in top shape. I spend a lot of the day on a computer, and I like thinking about business and computers -- that's what I have degrees in. I find myself thinking about work maybe a little too much of the time.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in elementary school, the prophet, President Benson, issued a challenge to read the Book of Mormon. I read it and knew that it was true. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me great joy in my life. Obeying God's commandments and serving others has brought peace into my life and into my home. I enjoy studying the gospel. Every day after lunch my wife and I read the scriptures together, out loud. Recently I've been studying the lives of the modern day prophets and its helped me strive to do more.

How I live my faith

Right now I help with the 16 and 17 year old young men in my congregation. I set a good example for them and teach them a gospel lesson twice a month. We do activities with the youth to prepare them to live happy and successful lives.
