Hi I'm Ben Scanlan

I'm a father, husband and son. I was raised in the South. I love football and baseball. I'm a Ute and Sun Devil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In my youth i loved playing sports including football, baseball and wrestling. I attribute most of what I have learned about life to sports, other than my loving parents of course. I am fluent in Cantonese and i loved spending time living in Hong Kong, China. I have a bachelors in Finance from the University of Utah and an MBA from Arizona State University. I am an entrepreneur and own multiple businesses. I am married to a beautiful caring woman and have four wonderful children that give me motivation every day. I love spending time teaching youth, mostly because it gives me an excuse to stay young mentally.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was Mormon and was taught the principles and values throughout my life. But it wasn't until I was 16 years old when i learned for my self that i wanted to be a Mormon. After teaching someone else about the gospel of Jesus Christ i was filled with a feeling that i know was God telling me that what i was teaching was true. I am grateful for that opportunity and numerous subsequent opportunities since then to confirm my belief in Jesus Christ and his restored Gospel.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith eveyday by the way i treat others that i come into contact with. I try and help others see the teachings of Jesus Christ through my actions and words. Although I am not perfect i know if i work my hardest my savior will help with my imperfections.
