Hi I'm Benjamin Steele

I am music lover. I'm a Harry Potter fanatic. I'm a book worm. I'm a cook. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest child in my family and the eldest son. I have one older sister and five younger brothers. I am a sophomore. I love music; I play the clarinet and the tuba, and a little piano as well. I love to cook and bake, but I really love to eat. I've loved reading for as long as I can remember and started the Harry Potter series, my first chapter books, before I entered kindergarten, reading the series over 76 times. I also love sports and play basketball, volleyball, golf, tennis, ping pong, bowling, and anything else that is athletically inclined. I am a proud seminary student and a member of my teachers' quorum. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because: 1) I was born into the church, 2) I can feel the Spirit often during my life, 3) it means a lot to me and has provided a support that I have been able to build myself off of over the course of my life. The Church has helped make me who I am, and it has shown me what I am: a child of God. I have great faith and love for our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson; and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I believe in the Plan of Happiness and that I have a purpose on this earth. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by practicing my beliefs daily. I do not drink or smoke or use substances harmful to my body. I avoid using vulgar language and refrain from immoral thoughts. I stick up for my friends and try to be a good example for others. I regularly attend church and mutual. I try to be a good missionary around my community by hometeaching, and around my school by answering questions concerning Mormon.org. I am also attempting to organize a Seminary Choir for my school district that would perform at our school talent show and at non-profit concerts. We might even attempt to raise proceeds for charity. But I think that where I live my faith to the fullest is at school, which is strange because of all of the obscenity surrounding me.
