Hi I'm Ben

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a small town boy living in the big city now. I grew up in rural Wyoming, and gained a great appreciation for the outdoors. In my free time you can usually find me out there. I love to hike, fish, ski, you name it. If it outside, I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. In the bible it says that in the latter days there will be many false prophets. But, we will know them by their fruits. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God because he brought forth good fruit. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of god, and it stands to the world as a test. We have received a promise from God that if we read the Book of Mormon and ask him (in prayer) if it is true, he will manifest the truth of it to us through the power of the Holy Ghost, and by the power of the Holy Ghost, we can know the truth of all things. If the Book of Mormon is true, than Joseph Smith was indeed a true prophet. And if he was a prophet, than the church Christ restored through him is also true. I put this promise into action and asked my Heavenly Father of the Book of Mormon is true. I know the answer I received, and that is something that I can never deny.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good person and keep the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Ben
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. Like the bible it was written by ancient prophets. Only instead of being the history and teachings of the people around Israel, it is the history and teachings of prophets of the Americas. It reads very similar to some parts of the bible. It is called the Book of Mormon because one of those ancient prophets as named Mormon, and he compiled all of the different writings into this book. It was translated by Joseph Smith, and contains a promise to everyone that reads it. If you read the Book of Mormon and sincerely ask our Heavenly Father, in prayer, if it is true, he will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
