Hi I'm Ben Bryson

I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, raised in Portland, Oregon, been a million and one places since, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a die hard lacrosse fan. It will be in my life forever, whether I'm playing it, watching or coaching, I will never stop laxing. While college plans are still in the air, I am preparing to serve in the Ventura California Mission for the LDS Church as a full time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but was not converted until I was 16. I had gotten myself into a lot of things I shouldn't have, but did not realize it. It took sometime and some very unfortunate events, and the help of some close friends and family to get me back on track. It wasn't until I had cleaned myself up and sat one day in Church that I realized this felt right. Being in that meeting, learning those things of our Lord's gospel. That was where I was supposed to be. That was where I was happy. Having the Lord in my life was something I did not realize was so good for me until I had it no longer.

How I live my faith

I attemd Church every Sunday as I continue to prepare to serve our Lord as a full-time missionary for 24 months.
