Hi I'm Thomas Benson

I grew up in Louisiana, convert and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a huge goof, I'm terrible at spelling, I'm in the Utah National Guard. As well I was on the swim team in high school and I love Jambalaya! I really don't know what to put on this thing so yeah I'm awesome. And bask in the glory of my humility.

Why I am a Mormon

in my teen years the missionaries where teaching me and I'm not going to lie I really didn't care. Until one time I was hiking with my friend Brenden. As we hiking, it started to snow! Now for any of you that don't know sandstone gets really slippery when wet. So we decided we needed to get back, as we started are way back down I slipped and started sliding down to a cliff. As I was sliding a said my first earnest pray, then when I finished abruptly I stopped. It felt like someone reached out there arm and stopped me. It was that time I decided that this thing is real, that the missionaries aren't just crazy that I was the one. After that experience I was a lot more inclined to learn more and I know that this is Christs true church and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God to usher in this last dispensation.

How I live my faith

So I live my faith, by going on a mission to New Hampshire where I am going to teach of Jesus Christ and how he is always there. I volunteered to give two years to teach and help others.
