Hi I'm Joseph Bench

I grew up in a small town in Idaho in a family that was centered on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have learned to love the gospel.

About Me

I am a really big basketball fanatic. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love music. And i love hanging out with my family, and playing games with people that i love.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. When you grow up in the church you let your parents teach you and you follow them basically. When you get old enough it gets harder though. You cant rely on what your parents know you have to find out for your self and i did that. In the Book of Mormon there is a verse in there in the last book wich is called Moroni. It is Moroni 10:3-5 and it is called Moroni's challenge is what i call it. They are amazing verses that tell the person reading to test God to see if He will actually give you an answer if the Gospel is true or not. they are wonderful verses and after i read them i did that challenge that is in there to put it to the test and i did recieve a answer. If you dont know like me i thought i was going have a miraculous feeling come over me and it can happen that way everyone recieves there truths different ways then other people. Mine was simply a answer of you already know it is true. That is why i am a Mormon. I have been able to do that challenge, Moroni's many more times just to remind myself when i need it. And have recieved the same answer agian and agian. That is why i am a Mormon for the moments like these moments.

How I live my faith

How i live my faith has been an amazing thing i am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Letter-Day Saints. i have been a missionary for 17 months and i love it. i love being able to share what i know about the Gospel with people that i love and so that is why i am on a mission to share it with everyone. Living my faith consists of trying my hardest to fully follow all of the Comandments that we have been given and just try to be a good person in general. i grew up in the church and i grow in the church and the gospel each and every day as long as i stay on the right path that i am suppose to be on. sometimes its a bumpy road when Satan is trying to work hard on you, but at those times you have to rely on God in those times and everything works out in the long run if you let God help you. I know this is true i have done this and have been able to grow becuase of it and it has been awesome. God is so important and we should always ask for his guidence when we need His help.
