Hi I'm Ben

I am a father of 5 beautiful children and husband to a lovely wife. I love smiling and helping others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

4 girls and 1 boy all under the age of 12 keep my wife and I very busy! I work full-time as a family nurse practitioner in a community health center. I love sports, playing games with family and being outside. We love to camp, fish, hunt, hike, ride horses and four-wheelers and sleep under the stars. We take way too many pictures and love scrolling through them. "Never stop smiling" is something I try to live by and I feel our lives are about seeking the Joy that Heavenly Father has planned for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon! The truths of the gospel have uplifted my life since I was fortunate enough to be born to parents that were already members. I served a mission for the church and saw how the joy that I feel can be contagious. I have a testimony that our trials are given to us to build us up, not tear us down and that the Lord has promised us he won't give us more than we can bear. "Endure to the End" and "Return with Honor" are challenging and rewarding themes to try and accomplish. Never stop smiling!

How I live my faith

I get to serve with the young men in our area. We work on Scouting Merit Badges, go camping, find service projects and support each others activities. On Sundays, we consistently discuss ways to uplift our family and friends. As a family, we try to study the scriptures, pray and find time to actually talk together. Life is so busy!
