Hi I'm Ben

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Ohio. I lived there for 21 years when I later moved to Arizona for college. I have been here for well over 6 and half years and I love it. I currently work for an internet company and have been doing that for the last 5 years. I no longer attend the college I joined when I came out here didn't work out, but I feel in love with the state and found a good job so decided to stay.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon cause when I first got out here I didn't have a church and wanted to learn more. I meet a good friend at work who was a member and for over the next 3 years he would invite me to activities, and church I would always say no I really don't need that. He later invited me to a campsite singles event with single women and free food how could I say no. A few weeks later I was just sitting in my room when a voice came over me like no other I have ever heard it told me to go to church. It frighted me a little cause I had no idea what it was at first. Well I listened to it and told my friend I wanted to come to church. He was shocked he couldn't believe it. The minute I entered the doors I was filled with a warm and inviting feeling I was just so happy and I didn't even know why. The following week I knew I was in the right place and decided to take the missionary lessons and on Feb 19th 2011 I was Baptiste by my friend and made a member of the true church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by standing to the truth living the words of the prophet and listening to the promptings of the holy ghost also being an example to those around me. I know his church is restored and that we have a living prophet today. I know Joseph Smith was and is a prophet and with his faith and obedience he restored the Gospel today.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Ben
Only worthy members are allowed to enter the temples cause that is where we make sacred convents with the lord. If we were to tell all or allow all it wouldn't be scared and it would allow people of not our faith to destroy that sacredness. We hold it dear and do not wait to tarnish the lords name or his house. Show more Show less
