Hi I'm Benjamin

I'm from a little town called Eden Utah, I'm a Convert, I'm a Quadruplet, and I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I run Cross Country and Track for Weber State University, Running is my life. It's helped me develop into the person i am today. I'm studying Forensic Science and Criminal Justice! I love to do anything outdoors! I Joined the Church just after my Senior year of High School, on July 23rd 2011! I'm a Quadruplet!!! That's FOUR babies born at the same time, for those who don't know what it is! I love my family and i love spending time with them. They are everything to me!

Why I am a Mormon

When I graduated High School i knew something was missing in my life, i couldn't figure out what it was, eventually i began to read the Book of Mormon my best friend had given me. All my friends were Mormon and they always thought of me as a nice guy. I had taken a semester of seminary, i had gone to church a few times, and tried to read the book of Mormon before, but to me it was just another boring meeting or words on a page. That all changed when i knew i needed something in my life. I met a very special friend at the beginning of 2011 and they helped me know what i needed. I took a senior trip to San Diego with a bunch of close friends and we stopped at the San Diego Temple for a little bit, that's were i felt the strongest feeling of peace i had ever felt. Eventually my close friend shared a scripture with me, by now i was really pondering if i wanted to be baptized. The scripture was Mosiah 18: 8-10, i knew after this that this was what i needed. Another really good friend of mine was interested in the church as well, so we started to take lessons together, we were both baptized together! I'm a Mormon because i know this is the Restored Gospel! The feeling of Peace and Happiness i feel in the Temple, or in church, or while reading the Book of Mormon, is something so special and spiritual! it testifies to me of the truthfulness of this church and that we have a loving Heavenly Father who restored his True and Everlasting church and Gospel through a modern day prophet.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission In the Jackson Mississippi Spanish Speaking mission. Besides going to church and following all the commandments, I don't just do these things because i have to or am told to. I do them because i love my Father in Heaven, and Jesus Christ. I do these things because they are what i want to become, something i want apart of my life, that's why i joined the Church. I know this Gospel is true and it's apart of me now. Something that has not only changed my life, but my family and friends as well. Two of my siblings have since joined the church. They are active and loving the Gospel. There are sooo many Miracles everyday!! God is a living god, and active god and he cares and loves each and every one of us! I'm filled with joy to be able to share that with people every single day in the Bible Belt!
