Hi I'm Ben

I'm born and raised in the Potteries. I love making films. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to university and got a 1st Class Degree in Film. During this time, I worked on the final two Harry Potter films and founded a corporate film company with a graduate friend. I now have a lovely wife I met while she was studying here from abroad and we live together in our Christ-centered home.

Why I am a Mormon

People ask me if I'm a Mormon because my parents brought me up that way - but I'm a Mormon because I prayed for myself to know if what I was being taught to believe was true, and I received my own special witness from the Holy Ghost that it is. As I live the teachings of Jesus Christ I feel greater peace in my life, great reassurance that God will take care of me when I do what I know to be right - and in today's turbulent society that is such a gift.

How I live my faith

I supervise the efforts of the missionaries in our area, by going out teaching with them and inviting people they meet in to my home. I get real joy from seeing people's eyes light up as they discover and apply the Gospel in to their lives one step at a time. We teach people from all walks of life about the Book of Mormon and how living what it teaches brings genuine and last happiness in to our lives.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

I have often filmed weddings for family and friends but they vow until 'death do us part', and I believe that as the Saviour taught whatever we "bind on earth shall be bound in heaven" so I am delighted to know that my marriage, performed in one of God's holy temples, will keep my wife and I (and eventually our children) together even after death.
