Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Western New York and had no religious background. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from western New York. I love the outdoors. I enjoy helping others. I enjoy cooking and baking. I didn't grow up with any religious background. I have been a Mormon since June 21, 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

I felt like my life wasn't complete and I was heading down the wrong path. One day I got the urge to request a Book of Mormon online. Little did I know it would be accompanied by two wonderful young men and they would want to teach me about the gospel. I was a little hesitant at first to let them in but I am so glad I did. Having the gospel in my life and knowing that Heavenly Father is there for me no matter what gives me a overwhelming feeling of joy. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a Profit of God. The gospel has brought me closer than I have been in a long time with my brother and mother. I would encourage everybody that may be hesitant or weary of the church to sit down and talk with the Missionaries or just read to Book of Mormon and pray so you too can find out for yourself that it is true.

How I live my faith

I attend church, pray, and read my scriptures regularly. I attend Institute lessons twice a week at my branch. I am always willing to help somebody in need. I try to visit all the families that I am assigned to home teach each month to make sure they are doing ok and don't need anything. I'm always looking for opportunities to share the gospel and my beliefs.
