Hi I'm Ben Halls

I grew up in Utah. I've swam competitively my whole life and have been captain of my high school team. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and I am a recent graduate . I love to be outside and I love anything that involves being outside. I love to swim, snowboard, play guitar and spend time with my friends. I live in a family of four children and my parents. I have a twin brother, a younger brother who is 14 and a younger sister who is almost 12. I was born and raised in Utah and I've loved every moment of living here.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life and was born into the covenant of the church. I continue to follow the teaching of the church because of the happiness that it brings to me. Everyday I see the blessings that I receive by following this gospel. I have struggled many times throughout my life and had many doubts. After all these doubts and trials I always know that I can rely on the gospel and its teachings to carry me through. I know that this church is the truest church on the earth today. I know that it has been restored to its fullness by God through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that my father in heaven loves me and cares for me personally. He knows my weaknesses, strengths, doubts and knows everything about me. He will answer my prayers and will assist me in anything that I ask him of. I love this gospel more than anythings else in life and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I have been serving in my community through the church for many occasions. I have had many opportunities to fulfill leadership positions and lead the young men of my ward. I have been recently called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for two years. I have been called to serve the people of Uruguay. I cannot wait to go and serve the people in Uruguay and share this wonderful gospel and bring its light to them.
