Hi I'm Benjamin Alma Jenks

I grew up in Mountain Home, Idaho. I love books, video games, and movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read books and to have a lot of fun. I like to be with family and friends, and help out whenever I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family "of goodly parents". They have taught me much about God and Jesus Christ. While serving on my mission, I have learned that, even when we have done wrong and even when it is difficult going through a trial alone, Heavenly Father is always there and is willing to forgive me for the things I have done. It is that belief that helps me get through my trials.

How I live my faith

I try to help others understand why things happen to them, for better or worse. I have taught others the plan of our Heavenly Father, and the central part of Jesus Christ in that plan. I have searched my ancestors, so that they can have the same benefits as I do.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Benjamin Alma Jenks
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is his sacrifice for us, that we may be able to restart, to forgive and forget ourselves, as well as others. For this to happen, we needed someone to be willing to take the punishment in our place, someone who had no punishment of his own. I stand all amazed that Jesus Christ was willing to do so, to take EVERYTHING we have suffered or will suffer, so we can be with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
