Hi I'm Ben

I love my family and the Savior. Life is great. I'm serving a full time mission in Independence, Missouri. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born on a farm and raised on a ranch. I love to hunt, go horseback riding, go off-roading, hang out with my family, travel, and more. Before I left on my mission I was involved in band (playing the trumpet). Along with performing in a couple musicals, being a member of a choir, and singing in an a cappella group. I grew up working helping my Grandpa on the farm, my Dad on the ranch and laying concrete, and doing other jobs here and there when they came up. Right now I am serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helping those in need, teaching others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and giving every day to others and the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (or Mormon church). My father always nudged me to go to church as a boy and to the activities there, but he never forced me. Growing up my father made sure that my siblings and I had a foundation of faith as we, as a family, read the scriptures (the Bible along with the Book of Mormon), went to church, strived to live what we believe, and knelt down together in family prayer every night. I know that this church is true with all my heart and soul. And I am striving to live it every day by serving a full-time mission at this point in my life. I invite you to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it's true. You too can gain a testimony of it's truthfulness, along with the church through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know it. Take a shot. What have you got to loose?

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission in Independence, Missouri and basically just trying to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible. Before I came on a mission I was active in church and in the boy scouts program and had many opportunities to serve and help others there. As I continue to study the scriptures, pray daily, go to church, and try my best to live what I believe I have seen a huge change in my life that I would've never been able to make on my own without the Savior.
