Hi I'm Benjamin

I grew up in Tyler Texas. I'm serving a mission in the Brasil Rio de Janeiro Mission (July 2013-2015). I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I am just a normal guy. I played almost every sport in High school and I love meeting new people. I love to have a good time and to make memories with my friends and my family. I love to just relax and just be myself around everyone. There are not many moments where I get nervous and shy. I love to play any sport with friends or with my family members. It is my passion.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate to be born into a strong LDS family. Over the years I saw the blessings we received through living righteously and keeping the commandments. When I became a teenager, I started to face situations that challenged my faith and beliefs. I've had to make hard decisions and because of those decisions I have been able to gain my own testimony. I know the power of the Book of Mormon. The Spirit has helped me know the truthfulness of the gospel. He has touched my heart to know the restoration of the gospel happened through Joseph Smith and we are led by a living prophet today. Through the teachings of the gospel, I know I am a child of God and have the potential to be exactly like him. This understanding helps me so much. I am a mormon because I can't deny the feelings I have felt through the spirit.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my everyday actions. No matter where I am I try to act in an appropriate way. My belief is not just something I can have on Sundays. It is something that I carry with me every day. I try to have high moral standards and be an example to all my friends. I also know it is important to serve others. I have had a great opportunity to serve in my ward alongside the bishopric and other ward leaders. I know that through service I show my faith in Jesus Christ. My faith is huge part of who I am.
