Hi I'm Ben Shaw

I've grew up in Washington state as well as Utah. I'm studying music at a University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Logan, Utah. I've moved to Washington state, back to Utah, back to Washington, and back to Utah since then. I graduated from high school in May of 2011, and immediately started going to school at Utah State University. I attended for two years, and then left to serve the lord on a full time mission, called to serve in Salta, Argentina. After returning home weeks later due to health problems, I returned to USU for a third year of college. Now, I'm working at a medicare exchange while working on finishing my degree online. I love the church, I love my family, and I love my Savior! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be baptized at the age of 8. At the time, I didn't fully understand the significance of my choice. As I've grown, I've also come to better understand the importance of my choice to follow the Savior. I continue to live the gospel because of my testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that he died for us, paid for our sins, and that he lives. This is what motivates me to live the gospel.

How I live my faith

I've lived my faith by going to church for my whole life. I was baptized at age 8. In the various wards I've lived in, I've served in youth leadership positions and as a ward missionary.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Ben Shaw
Everything around me tells me that God is real. Looking at nature, there's just no way this all just happened without divine design. And everyone knows right from wrong (somewhere deep inside)--how could everyone know it if we weren't all sons and daughters of the same God? And most of all, I see him in all that happens in my life--I just can't deny that I know he's there and he cares for his children. Show more Show less
