Hi I'm Ben

I'm a nerd. I sword fight. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at UVU studying English Literature with an emphasis on creative writing. I am married. I love doing anything in the outdoors, including mountain biking, hiking, and camping. I love to write and currently writing a novel. Something interesting about me is that I love to sword fight. I have been doing it since I was eight and I love it! I am a huge medieval buff and I love the challenge broadsword foot combat presents. I do it with my friends as often as I can. I particularly love sword fighting with the younger kids it makes it fun and imaginative. I love reading. My favorite books are anything medieval in nature like Lord of the Rings or Ranger's Apprentice. I am also a Star Wars fan. Besides my nerdy side, I also like keeping it real with water sports when ever I can and any other sport. I just like having good wholesome fun!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? That's easy--because it makes me happy! When I live the teachings that are taught in Christ's church, this church, I know and feel true happiness. I know we live in a world of darkness and confusion. We fight a spiritual battle with evil everyday. I rely on the feelings and teachings of this true church to arm me with the power to confront and defeat the hosts of the evil one. These enabling feelings and teachings have not only armed me with power, they have led me to testimony and conversion. I don't simply know the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I am the truths. That is, I live them. They are part of me. By living the doctrines and principles of the gospel, I know who I am, and what must be done to endure the darkness of the day, and light it up with the knowledge and happiness that comes from my Redeemer and his Gospel. I love it, and I love Him!

How I live my faith

I love working with the rising generation and the youth in my neighborhood. I like being a positive example to them in word and deed. I love making people happy. I love making people smile. I like helping people feel and see joy because I am happy and feel joy through the gospel of Jesus Christ. My wife and I work with the Cub Scouts of our neighborhood. We enjoy seeing them progress and learn valuable life lessons that help them become better people in the community and in the church. I always try to behave in such a way that those around me can feel the light of Christ. I like being a peacemaker. I live in such a way that Christ's image is in my countenance.
