Hi I'm Ben.

I grew up in a small town in Colorado. I love bicycling and music and I enjoy cooking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After starting 13 years ago, I finally just graduated from college. I love bicycling and all things related and I love music. I really enjoy cooking, especially when a recipe turns out well. I find that laughter is the best way for me to get through hard times and it keeps me smiling when otherwise it may be hard to smile.

Why I am a Mormon

I live the gospel because it gives me a direction in my life, a way to know that I'm on a path somewhere and not just living on a whim. I know that God loves me and wants what is best for me, so I try my best to do what he asks.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving those around me. I enjoy helping people move in particular, because of the satisfaction in gives me to know that I've done something good. I enjoy visiting families from church to strengthen them and find that those visits strengthen me as well.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

The LDS church helps those around the world by lifting the burdens of the people. When disasters strike, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and other natural events, the church sends it's members to clean up, provide assistance with food and shelter if needed, and to recover from the damages that occur. A few years ago, a tornado came through Colorado and wreaked havoc on the community where I live. Church members responded and we worked hard to clean up the debris and damage that were left behind. It was very difficult work, but those of us that helped were lifted up when we saw the looks of appreciation from those that were affected by it. It even seemed in many ways to make the work a little bit easier knowing that we were doing something for those people that they were unable to do themselves either because of limited physical capacity or because of the emotional distress that they were under.
