Hi I'm Ed Shipman Jr (Ben)

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been in the church my whole life, but i was not active for about 9 years. I never lost my belief but i just felt i was not worthy to be there. i felt i was not as spiritual and did not have as much knowledge as others had. I was setting on a deer stand one morning and heard a voice ask me what was i going to do? I thought someone was in the woods messing with me i later heard the same voice and knew what was being asked of me so i got out of the stand went home and attended church the next day and have been active ever sence. I learned that i was missed and was loved back in when i went back and found that no one looked down on me they truly waere my brothers and sisters and loved me

Why I am a Mormon

I have had several times learned lessons that the lord is at the head of this church and directs it. I have had two cancers and have recieved priesthood blessings and both are in remession. the doctors can not explain why i have gone thru the cancers so great. I know it was the will of the Lord.

How I live my faith

I try to serve my fellow men and women every day and return the blessings that i have recieved back to them in some small way.
