Hi I'm Benjamin

I grew up in Missouri, I am an electrition, I love to dance, cook, and spend time with my family and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Benjamin, I grew up in a small mid west town in a large LDS family were I was able to learn a lot about God and how to perform the basic necessities of life. in school i participated in track, cross country, and wrestling which I enjoyed very much. I also took part in FFA and was able to learn more about basic work shop skills and nature. Being a part of FFA I was able to take part in poultry, forestry, and entomology contest teams. I really enjoy learning new things and experiencing life. I've been a comercial electrition for about 2 and a half years. I enjoy nature camping, fishing, hiking, rock climbing etc. I love art, culinary arts and working with my hands. I also enjoy dancing, playing the piano, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was born into an active Mormon family. I am a Mormon because i have not aways known that the church was true. Growing up in a mormon you are raised to live a good life and go to church but doing that i never completely new 100%, it felt good and I loved going to church and I loved the members but I never really knew untill I was about 19 years old. At this point in my life is was preparing to go on a mission to teach people more about Christ and the Mormon faith. At this time everything that could go wrong in life went wrong, being torn apart emotionally and spiritually and with strains in my family and church I didn't know what to do or what to think. At this time I had the oportunity to search the Scriptures and ask God what to do. It didn't come all at once, in fact 3 years later I am still learning more. Even though the past couple of years were hard, I have come to know through prayer that Jesus Christ is my savior, that he restored his chruch through Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon is the work of God and another Testiment of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I think that the best way to live ones religion is to actually live it. It sounds kinda funny to say that, but alot of Christians say they have faith but thy do nothing about it, and at times I can be guilty of that my self. I think the best way I live my faith is by trying to repent daily and try to recognize the Lords tender mercies in my every day life. I can say that I've served as a missionary, participated in countles service projects, and attended church alomost every Sunday since I was born, but thats not going to save me, whats going to save me is my faith is Jesus and doing all I can to follow his example and live his teachings.
