Hi I'm Ben

I'm from Blacksburg, VA and I study Computer Science at Virginia Tech.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 6 children. I love music and sports. I play guitar and love soccer. I'm currently studying computer science at Virginia Tech. I am a student intern at CNS (Communications Network Services) where I am able to work and learn directly from the amazing developers there. I served as a missionary for the church in Fortaleza, Brazil for two years. On August 17, 2012 I married the love of my life, Brittany Kaye Sechrist, and we are expecting our first child July of 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

At first it was just because my parents were members but as time went on I found out that I couldn't rely only on their testimony but I had to have my own. Since then I have prayed several times to know that this church is true and I have received answers. My mission helped my testimony to grow as I studied and testified of this magnificent work. I continue to help my testimony grow by going to church on Sundays and during the week to spiritual activities.

How I live my faith

I always go to church services on Sundays and I go to institute classes during the week to study with other people my age.
