Hi I'm Ben.

I'm a college Junior. I play Quidditch. I like bow ties. I'm a little bit rock 'n' roll. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like bow ties, dancing, and food in all its forms. One of my greatest loves in life is music. I grew up playing drums and percussion and love jamming with my friends. Whenever I have free time and some extra money, I am usually in a record store, browsing the stacks for my next favorite album. I hope to one day work in the music industry. My new favorite hobby is Quidditch, the magical sport from the Harry Potter series. I play an adapted version for Muggles (non-magical folk), but don't worry, we still use broomsticks. Through Quidditch, I have made many friends with similar interests and have found a great way to stay physically fit. College has brought me a whole new set of experiences and provided several opportunities to work around the country.

Why I am a Mormon

For me, the doctrines taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provide insights into Heavenly Father's plan that have brought me peace and understanding. I have come to know my true relationship with God and with His Son, Jesus Christ. I know of their love and their blessings. Much of this has come through studying the Book of Mormon. Above anything else, the reason I am a Mormon is because of that book. I love it! There are many teachings about Christ and His sacrifice that help me love Him more and more. Whenever I read from its pages, I feel a closeness to God and a peace that I cannot find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

If Christ were here with us, He would reach out to everyone because of His infinite love. I try to follow His example by reaching out to everyone around me. There are many opportunities for simple acts of service each day. Whether holding the door or smiling to brighten someone's day, these small acts can really lift an individual and help them feel like they matter in this big world.
