Hi I'm Ben

I love my family, especially my wife! I love music and the spirit and unity it brings. I love being outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Married to the most wonderful woman in the world and am blessed to have her in my life. She has truly been an answer to my prayers. I grew up in Utah surrounded by Mountains and God's beautiful creations! I love to be in nature and enjoy camping and hiking. I also enjoy shooting sports and other outdoor activities. I love music and have been a singer all of my life, I am also a percussionist and love making music with my friends.I served a mission for my church in the Dominican Republic where I fell in love with the Dominican people and the Spanish Language. I studied Spanish in College so I could learn more about the Language, History and Literature of the people I love. I have a Master's degree in Human Resources and am working on my MBA.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church with a family that taught and practiced the gospel. Even so I new I needed to find out for myself if the things I was taught were true. I had many examples all around me of those that truly lived the gospel and those that did not. I was easy for me to see the happiness that came to those that lived the gospel of Jesus Christ and the difference it made in their lives. I decided that I wanted to be happy and that true happiness was and is founded on Jesus Christ and his teachings. My Heavenly Father has blessed me so much and although life has been extremely hard at times, I now that He has been with me and has carried me. I testify that He will never leave you alone, our Father in Heaven will always be there for you and you can always turn to Him and to our Savior Jesus Christ. They love us and want the best for us. God will answer our prayers.

How I live my faith

My wife and I strive to always work as a team and have a peaceful spirit in our home. I believe that the home is one of the most sacred places on earth and I know that if we teach and live correct principles we can have a positive impact on everyone around us. I strive to be a good example and be respectful to those I come in contact with. I work with the missionaries and help share the gospel with others.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Ben
Yes they can! This is one of the greatest blessings that our Heavenly Father has given his children. God has made it possible for a man and a woman to be sealed together for time and all eternity so that we can be with our families forever; this is possible through the sealing power given to his disciples as seen in Mathew 16:19. We have the opportunity to be with those we love forever as we make covenants with God, keep them and follow the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. I can't imagine Heaven without those I love being present, especially my wonderful wife. I know that God wants us to be with our families forever; He loves us and wants us to be happy. He knows that our greatest joys in life come from following His Son and being with those we love. That is why He made it possible for us to be together forever. Show more Show less
