Hi I'm Benjamin Bartholomew

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a Political Science Student and play water polo at the University of Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at the University of Utah. I play Water Polo. I am majoring in Political Science, with an emphasis in Politics and Law. I hope to work in the government one day or be a lawyer. I am also a convert to the church and love talking to people who are looking into it because I feel that I can answer their questions. I am also the only member in my family and so my faith is self-strengthened and I hope to help others, be it member or not to never give up on seeking out Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I KNOW that I was aided through many very hard trials in order to be baptized. Also I testify of miracles that have no earthly explanation. Testify of the truth that I receive when God answers my prayers through revelation, the spirit, or through the Book of Mormon. Finally, I am a Mormon, because I wish one day to be seal for all time and eternity with the perfect woman that He has created, protected, and progressed in faith to be come once again perfect in Heaven with me and our families. It is through the testimony I have of the Priesthood, and the Temple's sealing power that I am able to strongly hold on to my faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is through continual study of the scriptures, prayer, and seeking to do what Jesus Christ would do. I always listen to the soft voice in my heart, and head, and follow the direction it gives me. Finally I live it through answering my call as member and ward missionary to live it by always knowing not to let my heart be trouble for Christ commanded that of me and instead to look for other with troubles and bring the love, joy, and redeeming peace of our Savior to them so they may know that he is with them and that they may desire to keep fighting the good fight.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Benjamin Bartholomew
To go with our official answer I can only say that if you with an positive and searching heart actually read the Book of Mormon you, as I did, will most certainly find answers to a major concern or problem in you life. This is true for the Holy Bible as well because we believe the Book of Mormon is just an addition to the Bible. Show more Show less
