Hi I'm Ben I'm on the right.

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Virginia. I am a archery buff, an eagle scout, a RM from the OEM. Plus some.

About Me

I am 21. I was homeschooled almost my entire life. I love archery and like watches. I enjoy reading when it is the right book but also enjoy video games. I am a movie fanatic but still avoid the R rated one. I earned my eagle scout when i was 17.99999 without my mom doing everything for me. I am currently on a mission in the OEM. I plan to go to BYU-I when i return and study to be an Civil Engineer, not to mention get married (Family I have learned is more important then anything else I could have.) All in all I like a lot of things I have very few dislikes, except olives, and huge hills when I am on a bike, seriously I don't like em. but I am always willing to learn or try something new. I have a few things I don't understand a few things first physics never have never will. second faithlessness. there are so many things in the world to see as a blessing. the fact that we can wake up in the morning is a blessing. I look at the stars and think how can this be but then I read the scripture and I see. God loves all for he created all. we are his children and I know this to be true. I didn't always know this for a fact but throu much study and prayer I do. as a current missionary it hurts me to see people who don't know or understand this I pray everyday that I will be able to tell the message to you and others that we are all children of God and he loves you! so he has given us the things to get back to him mainly prophets and scriptures.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of Christ with every fiber of my being. The Book of Mormon in a True testament of Jesus Christ. Through The church i have found happiness and joy and plan to raise a family in the church one day. I am Mormon. One of the reasons I know this to be true is in the book of Moses 1:39 it says. "For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." I know this to be true. and when you understand this you relize everything God does is to help us get back to him. This Gospel shows me that God really does love us and doesn't forget about anyone is his plan. I love my Heavenly Father and I know that he loves me.

How I live my faith

I follow not only the word of God but the words of his prophet as well, for weather it be by God himself or his Prophet it is the same. I attend and participate in my church for God has given us the commandment remember the sabbath day to keep it Holy. I help people when I can and do my best to be kind for when we are in the service of our fellow beings we are only in the service of our God. plus I read the scriptures pray on a daily basis. when we pray we are talking to God when we read the scriptures God is talking back.
