Hi I'm Ben

I raise dairy goats, I love music and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Utah as the 10th child of 11. We've got a blended "Yours, Mine, and Ours" kind of family, but love for each other and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ keeps us close even with our variety of interests and lifestyles. We have a small herd of dairy goats and I learned to like the idea of hard work with chores like hauling hay, milking and feeding the goats each day. I learn again every spring about beautiful and precious life is as new kids are birthed. I also love music! I play Saxophone and Piano and most of the time I'm listening to some kind of music. From Classical and Jazz to Rock to Hip Hop and Techno.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into this Faith, and my parents and family have given me great examples to follow, I'm a Mormon because I want to be. All through my life i have been following the teachings of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and I know that He lives. I know that He loves me. I know that He died for me and my sins and was resurrected, and that through Him and his sacrifice, The Atonement, I can be changed to be like Him, a little at a time each day. The greatest source of help and strength in this life for me are the teachings of the restored gospel. Through studying the scriptures and participating actively in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I've learned more about God's plan for ME. That the end of this life, death, is not the end of us. We'll be rewarded according to our choices here in this life, and that we can always choose to improve.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of a follower of Jesus Christ. I've served in the past as a youth leader of groups of young men and had many wonderful experiences. I'm currently being blessed with the chance to serve as a Representative of Jesus Christ, a Missionary, full-time. My life right now is 100% dedicated to helping other people learn more about Jesus Christ and then inviting them to make changes in their life that will allow them to be closer to Him. Its an amazing opportunity! I've seen many people from many backgrounds decide to follow Christ, and then put their lives in order and make decisions to make it happen.
