Hi I'm Ben

I am a Mountain Biker, a university student, a petrol head, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Provo Utah. I am the oldest of 6 brothers and 2 sisters. I studied for a semester at Brigham Young University before going on a Mission to Manchester England. I love to Mountain Bike, Ski, and eat lots of Mexican food.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a wonderful family that taught me by example, from a young age about Christ and his plan for us, and how to find happiness by following him. As I grew I continued to learn more about Joseph Smith and how he was called to be a prophet in modern days. It's always made sense to me that God would want us to have his guidance now just as much as he wanted people in past centuries. They also taught me about the Book of Mormon; how it is another Testament of Jesus Christ, and the evidence of the truthfulness of the Church. I remember being taught how I could receive my own answer to know if the Book was from God. As a young man I decided to make a serious study of the Book of Mormon, to see how it would affect my life, and to find out if it was indeed, from God. For several months I read the Book each night before going to bed, and it was amazing to see the changes that came into my life; in my attitudes towards school, my family, and life in general. It was also wonderful to feel the way I did when I read the Book. As I read I would feel so happy and peaceful as I would read. I have also had the opportunity to pray and ask if the Book of Mormon and the Church that it comes from is God's one and only true Church, and I have received an answer from the Holy Spirit that it is true! I know it! It is such a blessing to live in a time when we have Prophets and Apostles once again on the earth that can help us to find clear direction and truth in a world of confusion.

How I live my faith

At the moment I'm a missionary for the Church over in Great Brittan. We speak to people about how Jesus Christ has helped us in our lives, and how he has bought back essential truths that help us to have hope and happiness in a troubled world. It's amazing to see the changes that take place in the lives of people as they come to know of Christ and his Restored Gospel and then begin to live it. I know how much the Gospel has helped me in my life and it's great to see how it helps others.
