Hi I'm Ben Standage

I love to skateboard, workout, rap and play the piano. Currently serving in the Iowa Des Moines mission. #MustBeMormon

About Me

Well my name is Benjamin, but only my mom can call me that so you can call me Ben! I am 23. I am currently on my mission. Hmmm hobbies and interests, I love to skateboard. I have been skateboarding for about 13 years now. It is the best and was such a sacrifice to put aside to serve the lord. I use to shred like errrrday. I have lots of great friends to skate with so that made it oh so much better. I also love to play the piano which oddly enough got introduced to me when i broke my arm skateboarding in 8th grade and my mom wouldn't let me go skate so i started making little melodies with the arm that was not broken. haha I am self taught and love to basically just mess around on the piano. I have had the opportunity to play at a wedding, funeral, talent shows, nursing homes, sacrament meetings and other nerve racking occasions. I like listening to classical music and rap. Weird i know but "You can take a thug out da streets but you cant take da streets out of a thug" Anyway, I am kid 3 out of 6 kids. I love my family and friends. I have the best parents in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Why have i chosen to be "Mormon." I have tried to figure out life on my own. I have tried to do things my way. I know that by applying and living the correct doctrines of Christs gospel which have been restored to the earth through a modern day prophet has brought me greater joy and peace then by anything i could do on my own. I know that I can be better and my potential as a husband and father and i guess just as a human being is only fully achieved through the hands of Christ.

How I live my faith

Well I am serving a mission that is one way I live my faith. I try to be better and look for ways to improve and be a better me. I believe that is exactly how Christ would want me to live. I attend church every week. I bare my testimony every fast Sunday. I read my scriptures and pray pray pray.
