Hi I'm Ben Kitchens

Born in the east, raised in the west. No matter where I am, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of four, born in Virginia, but raised in Utah. As a little kid I loved sports, and I have been participating in them ever since. I especially love Track and Field, which is still something that I compete in today. I have a strong history with music which allowed me to be fortunate enough to play alongside some of the world's best musicians. I speak Finnish fluently and love to travel. One of my hopes is to one day see the entire world through my own eyes.

Why I am a Mormon

The happiest moments in my life are always tied into being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm a Mormon because I love being one. I never have to worry about being judged, or finding a helping hand when I'm in need of one. I know that being a Mormon has blessed my life countless times. Whether it comes from serving people and seeing their own lives be blessed, or from the teachings the gospel provides that helps me through every day problems, I absolutely love being a Mormon. I know that it is the greatest thing that has happened to me in my life. I know that if I wasn't one, my life would not nearly be as complete or full of happiness. I love hearing from a living Prophet that speaks the words of God, and I love knowing that God is real, and that He does live today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings of the Savior as best as I can. Doing so enables me to see everyone I meet with love and kindness. Even if it's just a simple wave or smile if I notice someone is having a bad day. I live my faith by being an example around others, always encouraging them to be the best they can be. I live my faith by being a friend to those in need, helping them however I can no matter the problem.
