Hi I'm Benjamin

I'm a Big Brother, I love Sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from the south of Norway, Søgne. I am the oldest of three siblings and I love my family! I have leaved in the United States of America as an exchange student and I am currently studying Icelandic at The University of Iceland. I am almost 2 meters tall and I love sports. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints since I was baptized. And not to long ago I returned from a full time mission which I served in my home country Norway.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to grow up in the church and I believed everything they thought me. All the good principles and values I learned in the Church has been something that has shaped me from the time I arrived in this world, and for that I'm great full. But it came to a point in my early teens that I wanted to know for my self, or in other words gain a personal testimony that what I believed, actually was the truth. Because of my desire I took the challenge of a Prophet in our time. The challenge was to read the Book of Mormon - Another Testament of Jesus Christ in a year, and to ask God in prayer if its true. My choice to take this challenge has been the best choice in my life! Because of this I now know for my self that the gospel is true, and I strive every day to live by it! The gospel is the best life stile in the world. It gives me a purpose and a direction in my life. It gives me a reason to be the best that I can be. I am blessed to know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world! I am also blessed to know Who I am, Where I come from, Why I'm here and Where I'm going after this life! I am blessed to know that if I live worthy of it, I can be with my family for ever no mater what happens in this life! This perspective to life gives me hope, peace and happiness!

How I live my faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not only something you believe in it is a way of living life. Our Heavenly Father gives us commandments or instructions for how to live a happy life. Some of these instructions are The Golden Rule - "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself", The law of Chastity - avoid all forms of pornography and don't have any sexual relationship’s outside marriage and The Word of Wisdom - eat fruits and vegetables and sparingly with meat and abstain from harmful and addictive substances like alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea and drugs. In other words I do my best to follow Jesus Christ who showed us the path to eternal happiness.
