Hi I'm Benjamin Loren Hogenson

I'm a Canadian that has grown up loving the church. I am currently a full time missionary serving the Church and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a guy that has a lot of energy... I love doing things that involve my hands, namely art and the like. When I was growing up I was the one that everyone knew... In good and bad relationships. I was in Band playing the trumpet. Music and art are things that get to me and help me build my identity, I also love being physically active being able to walk on my hands. As I said before... anything that uses hands I will probably like... Currently I am in Utah, serving the church on a full time mission for two years in the St. George mission. And I have a family of two great parents, with 11 siblings waiting for me to return. So to wrap it up, my life is just beginning.

Why I am a Mormon

I have to say that at times I have found things quite difficult to handle, and at times I have almost given up hope... But then I decided that I needed answers for myself, which led me to doing something that I hardly ever did. These hard times, these struggles got me to pray and ask my Father in Heaven for the knowledge of the things that I needed to do in my life to be happier... Slowly the answers began to come... Not in the way that I had expected but through family, friends, and other church members and their examples to me. I know that we all have hard times, but as we confide in our Savior Jesus Christ, He will help us get through whatever situation we are in, He has helped me in ways that I can hardly describe... I know that this Gospel, that Jesus Christ and his teachings can help others, it can help you. Why not give it a try...

How I live my faith

Right now I am involved in the Church by serving a Mission for two years of my life... I am constantly teaching people about the things that I believe and am helping them come unto Jesus Christ and be happier. I couldn't be more content with what I am doing at this time in my life. I am blessed daily being able to see how these things can help people out in their lives to find more peace and happiness.
