Hi I'm Ben

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, father, violin maker, violist, cyclist.

Why I am a Mormon

I went on a mission to the Netherlands and Belgium. As i was knocking on doors in Rotterdam during my first week, I realized I could not do this anymore unless I gained my own testimony of the gospel. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time in a couple of days reading through the night. Late at night, alone on my knees (kneeling at an ornate carved wood chair with green upholstery we had found on the street) I asked God if the Book of Mormon was true. The Spirit filled me. I was told that the Book was true. I went to work for the Lord and have never stopped.

How I live my faith

I currently serve with the High Priests in my local ward. I volunteer on the Board at the Peninsula Youth Orchestra. I play viola with the Gig Harbor Symphony and in the Ambrosia String Quartet.
