Hi I'm Elder Benjamin Shaner

I was born in the Midwest, grew up in Utah, love rock climbing and am on a an LDS Mission to Uruguay Montevideo West Mission.

About Me

I grew up in Utah I have four brothers including a twin and three sisters. I love to do lots of activities including hiking, rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and playing soccer. I love to read and to learn new things. I love to run and pole vault. I have three dogs and love to spend time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I live the principles of the LDS Church I feel the most at peace and happy with my life and actions. Every time when I live these principles I feel the best with my actions. I know that my Savior lives and loves me and suffered and died for me. I know that by living the principles of the LDS Church it can bring the most happiness to any ones life. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a day by day basis. I live my faith by fulfilling what I am asked to do such as fulfilling a calling teaching and by choosing to go on a mission to the Uruguay Montevideo West Mission for 24 months. I also live my faith by volunteering and helping out in my community in any way I can.
