Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Nebraska, I love mixed martial arts, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the mid west other than a brief 2 year stint in Florida. I started wrestling as a sophmore in high school and fell in love with it. I was never good, but it was fun. That led me to submission wrestling and muay thai. I graduated high school early and went to BYU for a semester. I am majoring in applied statistics. I also love firearms.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, and baptized when I was 8 years old. I have been active the entire time. I didnt have my own testimony of our Savior and his gospel until a few years ago. I gained such a love for Jesus Christ and his atonement. I believe Joseph smith was a true prophet of god and i believe that The Book of Mormon was God's word. I am serving as a full time missionary because i want to help other people feel the same way i do. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am leaving my branch to serve a full time mission for our church. I was an adviser to the group of boys my age prior to my departure. I attend as many church meetings as I can, not only to grow spiritually, but to show support for all of my fellow members wo put effort into planning and organizing activities.
