Hi I'm Ben

I am from Salt Lake City Utah. Born into a wonderful family that helped me prepare to serve an LDS mission in Sao Paulo Brazil.

About Me

Grew up playing baseball and skiing. Unfortunately, I broke my shoulder skiing and had to stop playing baseball but learned a lot form that experience. Love reading books and spending time with family and friends in college. Studying towards improving education. Spend a lot of my time hiking because Utah is full of great places to visit outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

Thats a good question. I was born into the church obviously and surrounded by a lot of people who believe so thats definitely a factor but the big reason is that living the teachings of Jesus Christ found in its fullness in the LDS or Mormon Church has changed my life. There are a lot of wonderful religions promoting goodness in this word but I have found that the Mormon Church has the fulness of Christ's teachings so anyone can come and receive more if they so choose.

How I live my faith

In the church I am responsible for organizing activities every Monday for the single young men and woman that attend the local congregation for where we live. I try to create an environment where not only everyone has fun but also feels like they belong and have value. With family I try to serve. My greatest feelings of happiness and heartbreak have come from within my family and through service, the feelings of happiness are deepened and the feelings of heartbreak are alleviated. With friends I try to set an example of someone who is trying to be changed by Jesus Christ and His sacrifice. That type of example is not only one of obedience but of character. Its really hard to do but with Christ's help I know I can be changed to be more and more like Him every day.
