Hi I'm Ben Wright

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I am currently a missionary in the California Sacramento Mission.

About Me

I grew up in a beautiful town called Orem in the state of Utah. I have major Utah pride because, well lets be honest here, its the greatest State in America! The 4th of July is my favorite holiday because I love America but also because red, white, and blue are my favorite colors and I love love love fireworks. I hate Halloween. I like being in the loop and being apart of exclusive groups. Life isn't about "likes" but I love it when I get a lot of "likes" on Facebook and Instagram. #followme

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly, growing up, I was a Mormon because that's what my parents were. I really didn't know anything else. But now, as an young adult, I am a Mormon because I believe the teachings and lessons of the church to be true. I do have a testimony of Christ. I believe that he has visited the earth and has given us commandments to better our lives as well as to make it possible to live with our Heavenly Father again. Its not always an easy task to follow the commandments that God has given us, but I've learned that the more I follow them, the easier they get. It becomes a way of life, a culture that is interwoven into the person you are. I'm Mormon because the teachings and doctrine of the LDS Church have changed my life eternally and I feel Gods love wherever I stand.

How I live my faith

I believe that living your faith is more important than preaching your faith. When you simply "preach your faith", it doesn't always include "living your faith". I believe the best way to know if I am converted to the gospel is by my personal willingness to share the gospel to those around me. If Christ has changed your life and made you a happier person, why wouldn't you want to share it with others? As my love for God increases, so does my desire to first, follow the commandments and second, share the gospel.
