Hi I'm Ben

I'm a tax lawyer, a minimalist jogger, an amateur chef, a daddy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a tax lawyer at a national and international law firm in Phoenix, Arizona. I enjoy jogging on dirt trails and canal paths. I also enjoy making wood burl clocks in my garage, and trying out new recipes in my kitchen. But my favorite thing of all is spending time with my one-year old girl.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents taught me by example and helped me to learn how to gain my own testimony. Although I never had an angel appear to me or a particular moment in my life where the spirit whispered to me that the church is true I have a strong testimony of the church. I realized that testimonies don't have to come that way and can grow little by little. I have had many experiences when which I have felt the spirit and seen the spirit at work. I now want to help my own daughter learn to gain her own testimony of the gospel as she grows.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by studying the Bible and other inspiring works and by trying to put the things I learn into practice in my life. I try to follow Jesus and show compassion to those I encounter along life's path.
