Hi I'm Benjamin

I am an elder brother, son, student, artist and thinker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i love all forms of art: theater, design, music, dance, literature, fashion, photography, modeling, animation, everything. All thought forms: sciences, philosophy, debate, math, history, psychology, etc.! i primarily dance and play violin, draw, write occasional poetry, and love breaking things down and analyzing every component, learning new things. ADHD, of korean and mexican descent, awkward and introverted yet loud and loquacious. i am the oldest of four siblings (sister, sister, brother, sister. all two years apart! :D), a joker and animal-lover (anything from deep sea monster to spiders are cute ;3), passionate and clueless xD

Why I am a Mormon

i was born into the church, but i also know the things it teaches to be true. the church has always been a source of comfort and love for me, and it is how i orient my life. it is my connection to the Savior and Father, and i know that i have been blessed in so many ways because of my faith. it gives meaning to my life and provides the answers to all my questions. it is my family, and my home

How I live my faith

i am a preisthood holder in my church, helping to prepare the sacrament, lead the younger priesthood holders, try to be an example to all those around me, and provide service to elderly or inactive members in my area. i am a former boyscout, now crew member, and go to seminary class every morning, monday through friday to study snd read the scriptures.

Are Mormons Christians?

Benjamin
of course! we believe in the Trinity, and merely have a supplement to the Bible, called the Book of Mormon, which is another, additional testament of Jesus Christ, geared more toward the present day, translated by Joseph Smith under the guidance of Christ. we hold many of the same values and practices as other christians, such as chastity before marriage, avoiding strong drink and substances, prayer, sacrament, service, etc. Show more Show less
