Hi I'm Ben Ripley

I grew up in Kingsville Ontario Canada. I Love to be outdoors going fishing, hiking, canoeing. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I love to cook/bake, go fishing, be out in the wilderness and spend time with family. I am a son, of two amazing parents. I love to serve those I come in contact with.

Why I am a Mormon

Without the gospel I do not know where I would be or what I would be doing. I am far happier than i ever have been because of the service I provide to others each day. The Atonement is everything in my life, without it neither myself or anyone else could find true happiness in life. It is my strength and the reason that I keep living each day.

How I live my faith

With growing up in a town with no members I was the only member in my school all of my life. Things were not always easy but as I stood up for what I believed people saw how I was different. That time made my testimony strong as I had to rely on The Lord for everything, it has molded me into the person that I am today. I am a missionary for our church so I teach others of the gospel and how it has blessed me in my life.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Ben Ripley
Serving a mission is a choice that each of us can make. It has been asked that we do but does not mean we have to. It is the greatest thing we can do however because of the amount that we learn and the happiness we feel, in the short time of only 18 months to 2 years Show more Show less
