Hi I'm Ben

I've lived in the state of Iowa all my life. I'm a runner and a flutist. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a high school graduate who is going to be serving my mission in Ghana very soon. In school, some of my favorite things to do include running and playing the flute. I love music and being with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

Originally it has been because I was born into it. I am the youngest of 6 children and all 5 others are very faithful individuals. In early years I practiced religion because I thought it was what everybody did and I simply would too. However even as young as I am now I've experienced plenty of spiritual experiences. I have gained a very strong testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel and I hold it very dear to me. I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true and that it is the path I need to take to enjoy eternity with my family.

How I live my faith

I regularly attend Sunday meetings and I even teach people who have been recently baptized in a class known as Gospel Principles. I find that even as the teacher I learn just as much if not more than I would if I was the student.
