Hi I'm Ben Folsom

I grew up in Montana. I have lived on a ranch most of my life. I love to play football and basketball. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been Mormon since I was born, both of my parents were raised Mormon and I grew up living this faith. I grew up in a small town in Montana. I grew up on a ranch most of my life and I love the life I live. I love the outdoors and hunting and fishing and I love playing sports, mostly football and basketball. But more than anything, I love my family. My family brings so much joy into my life. I am the youngest of 6 kids. I have 4 older brother and 1 older sister and all of my brothers and my father have all served missions. They were all great examples to me and have helped me to prepared myself for a mission. I grew up in a small town and there wasn't many other members of the Church. I went to a small branch of about 20 people for most of my life. It wasn't always the easiest but it is so worth it. I grew up with a basic testimony of the gospel but through studying and praying and living the commandments I have come to know of the truthfulness of this message and that the whole truth of the gospel has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. I am now serving a mission in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on the earth today. Through reading and studying The Book of Mormon I have gained a testimony and there is no doubt in my mind that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and restored The Church in these latter days. Also I have seen the blessing and the joy that being Mormon has brought into my life and I wouldn't want to live any other way.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a Spanish speaking mission in Albuquerque New Mexico and sharing my testimony of how the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life.
