Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Drasco, Arkansas as a chicken farmer. I am going to be serving a mission in Bakersfield California speaking Spanish.

About Me

I grew up working on the family's chicken farm. I enjoy cooking, reading, camping/hiking, and swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but as I have attended church regularly I have come to know for myself that the teachings of this church are true. Namely, that Jesus is the savior of the world; that the Book of Mormon is true scripture; that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that God speaks through his prophet on Earth today.

How I live my faith

I have always tried to stay very involved in the church. I have done my best to attend as many activities for the youth as possible. I have served as part of the committee that plans and organizes the youth activities for our stake. I participated in online seminary due to the fact that the youth in my branch are so spread out.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Ben
While we do not worship Joseph Smith we do believe that he was a prophet of God, and that he did translate the Book of Mormon. We respect and honor Joseph Smith for the courage he had in his life to follow the will of the Lord. We believe that he did see and speak with heavenly father and that through him the true church of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. Show more Show less
