Hi I'm Benjamin

I was born in Utah, raised in Texas and am now serving a mission in Independence Missouri, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into the church and was raised by my parents and leaders to develop my own beliefs and testimony. I am currently serving a mission and sharing the gospel that has so richly blessed my life so that other can have a chance to grow closer to Jesus Christ and become more like him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true, I have seen the fruits of following the teachings of the Book of Mormon and modern day prophets, and I am happy when I follow the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple things, studying the scriptures, praying, and going to church but the most important thing I do is try to remember the Savior every day and make the choices he would want me to make. I also do everything I can to share my faith with those around me by keeping the standards I have prayed about and know are true.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Benjamin
Yes, God has always called prophets and is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God loves us and because He loves us he gives us prophets to lead and guide His church so that the people who heed the words of the prophet can grow closer to Jesus Christ and become a happier and more blessed people.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Benjamin
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon teaches us that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer through the records of prophets that were called in the Americas. The story follows a prophet named Lehi and his descendants, Lehi was a prophet in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. and is commanded by God to leave Jerusalem and is led to the Americas. Prophets following Lehi continued to record their experiences and teachings about Jesus Christ. These records testify that Jesus Christ appeared to the people in the Americas after His Resurrection and that He taught them the gospel. The Book of Mormon does not replace the Bible, instead it supports its teachings and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
