Hi I'm Benjamin Smith

I am a proud member of the church. I enjoy physical activities. I am a friendly person.

About Me

I am 19 years old going to serve in the Salvador Brazil mission. I was born in Colorado Springs Colorado 1994. I have 2 older brothers and 2 older sisters. I am an uncle to 11 young children all under the ages of 12. I love my family more than anything! I enjoy anything physical activity. Basketball, Snowboarding, Football, Hiking, Climbing, Skimboarding, basically anything that gets your heart beat going. I was on the basketball team in highschool and will always be in love with the sport. I am an eagle scout and have been ordained and served in many offices withing the church. I have never been more excited for anything but to serve my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is what brings me the most happiness in life. It teaches principles based on family and being good to other people. Which I believe are the basic principles anyone should live their lives on.

How I live my faith

I was born into the gospel and lived off my parents testimony for a while. It was not until I moved away to college I obtained a testimony of my own. It was such a blessing living the gospel by myself being independent and learning my own lessons. I have never been good at explaining or teaching concepts as I was growing up. Whenever my friends would ask my about the gospel I had a hard time teaching them about it. As I grew up I depended on teaching my example more than words. Now as I grow in knowledge and age I am excited to serve and teach through words to the people in Brazil. Currently I am a primary teacher, I teach little 8 year olds in primary. I am companions with my father and we have two families we home teach. I have had many callings in my youth I was president over my youth groups from ages 12-16. I have always tried to serve faithfully and diligently. I will also continue to do so.

What is the priesthood?

Benjamin Smith
I would explain how it was restored to this earth. How it works and what kind of powers it bestows upon man. And that it is the power of god given to man on earth. Show more Show less
