Hi I'm Ben

I'm from Canada, born and raised! I played elite hockey all through high school and I enjoy any sporting event. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born into a family of six as the youngest and baptized when I was 8. I sent my papers off the month I graduated and I leave to serve the Lord on December 16th 2015. My hobbies include sports, photography, reading, and obviously Netflix. I work as a landscaper and assist in renovations. I am choosing to serve a mission at this time in my life because I feel it is the right direction that I need to take. If I chose to continue playing hockey it would have pushed back my mission and schooling, and I would've been unable to enjoy the peace of the Sabbath and warmth of the church and its members. I can't wait to get to California and experience life as a missionary in the hot sun and diverse culture!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the feelings that I get from the Spirit telling me that the words of the Book of Mormon are true. As I read passages of the Book of Mormon everything clears around me and a sense of peace comes over me telling me that this is the right direction. I also receive witness that this is the true church of Jesus Christ when other members testify of similar feelings they receive through their acts of faith during things such as fast and testimony meetings. I am a Mormon because when I follow the commandments and covenants in which I made and continue to make I feel clean and pure and my conscience stays clear allowing me to worry less about bad feelings and more about the important things in life.

How I live my faith

For starters I try to attend all Sunday meetings. I think that is a very important in growing your testimony and faith. I go to institute every week and also attend church mutual activities as they are very uplifting and fun! I was lucky to get my dad as a home teacher and we strive to fulfill our monthly goals. I was also assigned to be a temple worker and I am so grateful to enjoy the blessings and feelings of the temple every week!!
