Hi I'm Ben

I was born in Dallas Texas and grew up in Chicago Illinois. I play the Violin and I love sports, especially football. I'm a Mormon

About Me

A little something about me is that I love sports, especially football i mean its the best thing to me. When the NFL season starts is probably my favorite time of year. I played football and wrestled in high school. But i do have a softer side to me. I have played the violin for 8 years, and i love playing it. I find it soothing and helps me grow into a more well rounded person. I love reading books ! i have read so many of them. Anything from fantasy to a little sic-fi and a old amount of historical fiction. Im also an adrenaline-junky. I love pushing myself to the limits of something, and living life to it's fullest. Unless it involves sharks or Bungie jumping, haha man those things are way to scary for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my dad always taught me to question anything and everything in life. I mean truly question things, and be open to whatever answer may come your way. You may not always like what you fin or you will. I don't know it depends on the person. This is true for all things not just religion. So I questioned around and asked and learned. Both my parents are converts to the church, They both are incredibly intelligent. My dad brought me along to church but wouldn't let just believe because he believed. He made me find out for myself. Its so imperative that we all find the truth for ourselves and not rely on other peoples faith to be the only faith in our lives. I believe in this church because I sat down and truly pondered this. I found the truth and how it comforted and blessed my life. I was agnostic for a long time until i really started asking questions for myself. This is religion of personal growth. I know this church is true, with all my heart. There is a Prophet on earth again. Gods holy doctrine is upon the earth once more, and we need to find this for ourselves !

How I live my faith

I live my faith as a Mormon by abiding by the doctrine. I am not perfect because no one is, but I try my best and i know that as i try i learn and grow as a human being. i believe everyone has a right to their own beliefs wether on religious or in the world like social issues. i won't ever force my religion on anyone else, but if they're curious then ill help them and answer any questions they have. I know that by living the way I do that it helps me grow so much as a person. When I fail at something in the Gospel or am not strong enough it helps me grow because i learn how to get through these things. But most importantly to me at least, when I falter in life I can rely on Jesus to be there for me and comfort me. He gives me strength to do what I need to do. I know this sounds cliche or cheesy but its the truth and only by truly searching for this can anyone know it.
