Hi I'm Ben Rodgers

Im proud of my native american heritage. I drive for fun. Im a mormon.

About Me

So a few things about me. Im just your average dude. I was born and raised in the south. My dad was the chief of the catawba indian tribe for 4 years. I love my heritage even though it doesnt relfect a lot on my skin tone. I take pride in geneology. Im greatful for my ancestors on both sides of my family. I take part in pow-wows as an eagle dancer, and i was the first one of our tribe to do it in over 100 years. My other love is cars. I love japanese makes and models, i also have a specail place in my heart for good ol american muscle. I go to car shows and meets in my spare time. As of right now Im on a mission for the church! Im enjoying it alot. One of the best desicions of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

In a world with mixed morals and confused standards this church helps clarify in great depth how we need to live a good life. Not only does this church offer the most important part of salvation spiritually, it also has commandments that help physically, and mentally. The word of wisdom helps ensure that we do not become enslaved to the vile substances of this world, it also allows us to be healthy and enjoy the blessings of a long life. I know and have family members that are addicted to such things and i can see how it affects them. I know that through the power of the atonement and through an strong faith in christ and dedication any one can over come these addictions. Ive also seen how the gospel can change lives. Ive seen first hand the blessings that come from this great commandment that we have. I also like the law of chastity. The lord god delights in the chastity of his people. The way the world destroys the image of women and men across the world is becoming a problem. Im glad that the church takes a stand for what is morally right even when they have an entire world against them. Im a mormon because not only do i know this church is true. Ive prayed, ive read the book of mormon, Ive had trials of my faith, and because of these things ive come to know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

Back home in SC i was an instructor for the elders quorum. I enjoed that calling a lot, i prepared lessons to teach to guys that were older than me and it was kind of weird to think that a young person like me could teach a group of older guys. I also like to help people too. Service is a great blessing in this life, we can accomplish so much with service. Ive currently concecrated two years of my life to the lord to serve him 24/7. I feast upon the scriptures every day here in the feild, teach and share this amazing message of a restored gospel. That god has called prophets in these last days to help us return to his presence. This gospel has blessed my life a lot.
