Hi I'm Zach Bengtzen

I'm serving a mission in Canada for my church. I'm a singer, a saxophone player, and a Black Belt in Karate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to travel and want to see the world. I love listening to and performing music, especially Jazz. I feel like current music doesn't have enough meaning, so I use my music, more specifically my singing voice, to help others feel something. I love being the friend that you can talk to when you need someone to listen to you. Helping and serving others makes me happier than anything else on this planet.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love everything this church is and stands for. Since I was little I've always been very curious about everything and always have been excited to learn. This church teaches the answers to the most simple and yet most asked questions we humans have: "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" And "Where am I going?" No other church, no professor, no textbook, and no internet search can truly answer these questions like this church does. I am also a Mormon because of what it has helped me to become, I'm so much better in every way I can think of with this church than I would be without it. I'm a Mormon because it brings peace of mind, I know what I have to do to be happy and I know exactly where those I love will be and are when they leave this world. Nothing else brings me more joy, peace, and opportunity than being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing everything I can to make my Father in Heaven happy. I try to help others also be happy by setting a good example for them and helping them know the right decisions to make when put in hard circumstances. I know that true happiness is brought through centering ones life around the Gospel of Christ. I've seen it countless times with those I love and even with myself; you truly are happier when you are living how you know you should. Because I live this faith, not just have it, I have decided to serve a mission for my church in order to help others understand and have that true happiness I have and love.
