Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in northern California. I am a family man with two kids. I am a Physical Education teacher, coach and foster parent.

About Me

I have been married for seven years to the love of my life and we have two crazy children. I am a Physical Education teacher at a middle school where I live. I love to coach and have coached High School Football, Basketball and Track. I played one year of college football at Butte College in California. My wife and I are foster parents which keeps us busy and on our toes.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe through personal experience that teachings found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are inspired by God and that those teachings (faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end) help all of mankind to be happy now and to have eternal joy now and in the future.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Ward Mission Leader for my church. I find great joy in aiding our local missionaries in teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. The message of redemption through Jesus Christ and living a Christ centered life motivates me to be my best and put my faith in Him. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it inspires me to be my best self and to live a life centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
