Hi I'm Benji

I grew up in North Carolina. I love my family. I like musical theater. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I really enjoy music. I have been singing since I was a kid, and I played the trumpet in marching band in school. I also love to act, and so I have a real passion for musical theater. For a kid who likes the arts, it might sound crazy that I also love science and math, and I want to design and invent. I am currently attending BYU and have served a two year mission in Puebla Mexico, and I want to be an engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and his teachings. When I read the Book of Mormon, it all makes sense. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is beautiful, and is something that is supposed to make sense as you read and pray about the teachings. My life is made as happy as it is because I make decisions in accordance with the plan that Heavenly Father set forth for me. When I digress from his plan, I feel the sadness that accompanies sin, and I know that to be successful I have to get back on the right track. I know The Church is true. I know that God lives and loves us. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and of his atoning sacrifice for me. I love God and Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith restored Christ's gospel to the earth in this day. I know that we have a prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, and I love him and the other leaders of the church with all my heart. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I take time out of each day to meditate and feel God's presence through prayer and scripture study. I love to serve others and I currently serve in my Young Single Adult ward.
