Hi I'm Benjamin

I grew up as an "Army brat." I love language and speak Chinese and technobabble, and I write music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married since 2006, but we haven't been able to have children yet. I have a teaching certificate that allows me to teach English and Chinese at public high schools. I work as a quality assurance specialist and editor. Although I graduated with a humanities degree, I love music, math, and science. My family and I are starting an online music publishing company.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that I am a son of a loving Father in Heaven. Through the atonement of Jesus Christ, I have found peace with myself and the world. Through the power of the Holy Ghost, I receive daily revelation. My relationship with God helps me every day.

How I live my faith

I could sing before I could talk, and music has always been the best way for me to express my love for Jesus Christ. My favorite church song is "I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus." This song helps me keep a Christ-centered perspective. My wife and I serve as choristers for children's Sunday school. I love having fun with the children as they increase their understanding of the truth through music.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

I have taught and tutored others for more than a decade. Everybody learns different truths at different times of their lives, even if they experience the same things over and over again. Nobody knows what we are ready to learn better than our Heavenly Father. One of the gifts He gives us is the opportunity to have the messenger of truth—the Holy Ghost—as a companion as we try to follow His commandments. The Holy Ghost helps us learn what we need to know. As a teacher, I know that it is impossible to reach every student all the time, but if I follow the promptings I receive from the Holy Ghost, who can accomplish this, I am able to share more truth with others. The wonderful thing is that as I share the truths I love with others, I receive new truths. Show more Show less
