Hi I'm ben johnson

im a Mormal Norman missionary from East Bench, Utah.

About Me

i am currently harvesting in the Virginia Richmond Mission! i love to work out, but dont make me jog. i doodle more than i write. youngest of 6. grew up playing football, basketball, & baseball until i recognized the sacred nature of ping-pong! You can find me at a thrift shop and/or a greasy taco stand.

Why I am a Mormon

i was raised in a strong Christ centered home. learning of the reality of Deity came easy to me but understanding the Saviors earthly ministry as something divine and essential rather than just something informing and historical took some time. in fact it took most of my teen years though i was physically active in the Mormon church. Luckily, i knew there was a God and that he was a good God, and if any church emulated the true nature of this supreme being, it had to be The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the church i had so many associated spiritual experiences with. though those spiritual experiences were real, my youthful skepticism quickly rationalized those experiences/miracles into coincidences. it was not until i thoroughly, prayerfully and consistently read the Book of Mormon with that same skepticism that i was able to find out the true divinity of it. some where along the way of my study of the Book of Mormon, i found that i was reading because i simply felt the peaceful feeling of the Spirit of God as i read, as opposed to reading to find fault. my search for proof was in vain, but as i sought for truth, it came. i now have a clear and growing knowledge of Jesus Christ and his love for me. this unique knowledge could not be attained without the Book of Mormon. day by day i see the sanctifying effect Gods Spirit has on myself and those others who except this Gift from God.

How I live my faith

i strive to put God first!
