Hi I'm Ben Lowe

I was born and raised in Hawaii. I moved to Utah in high school. I am serving a mission in Bismarck North Dakota. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18. I am the youngest of seven kids. I love to watch and play sports of all kinds. I love the outdoors. hiking, mountain biking, swimming, and rock climbing are some of my favorite things. I have worked in several occupations from manual labor to desk work. I want to go to college and study business and someday own and operate many of my own companies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church is true. I know that God loves me and each and everyone of his children. I know that He sent His son Jesus Christ to this earth to atone for each and every one of my sins and the sins of the world. I know that He was resurrected after three days and that He did appear to Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord and that he did see God the Father and Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph did translate the Book of Mormon. I know too that it is true and that the teachings in it are the words of God to each of us in this dispensation of time. I know that Thomas S. Monson leads the church today. I know that he was called of God and has the power and authority given to him to do so. I know that the priesthood is real and that it is the power of God given to his worthy servants. I know that my family can and will be together forever through the sealing power. I know that families are ordained of God. I know that the church is true. I haven't always known these things. I was born and raised in the church and had always done what I was supposed but I came to a knowledge of these truths by studying the scriptures and praying to know for myself of their truthfulness. And I know that there is no better feeling than knowing for yourself that God lives, that He loves you, and that He has prepared a way for you to return and live with Him again. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live and show my faith by attending church regularly, by serving faithfully in my callings, and by seeking out opportunities to serve others. I love service and I show my faith by doing as much of it as I can and when I do it I give 110 percent. I have helped organize many scout activities and participated in many as well and love doing it.
