Hi I'm Benjamin

I live in Colorado. I'm a media literacy advocate. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a PhD student with an amazing wife and two little boys. I enjoy exercising, reading, watching movies, making things, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Church, and throughout my life I've had small experiences in which I've recognized the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know from experiences--good and bad--that when I make an effort to understand His will and live my life according to it, I'm happier. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers. And I know that the Spirit can give us comfort and guidance in life, especially when we struggle. Christ's teachings make perfect sense to me, and I have no doubt that this is His true church.

How I live my faith

As a graduate student and media literacy advocate, I work to encourage young people to be more thoughtful and critical of the media that they participate in. And in the Church, I volunteer teaching the teenage guys. I love seeing how the truths of the Gospel correspond to my studies, and I am eager to use my knowledge and testimony of the Gospel to help others, in and out of the Church.
