Hi I'm Ben Wheeler

I am a Marketing Professional. I like to sing and act in live plays. I love manufacturing things. I am a father. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I have been selling things since I was a paper boy at age twelve. After High School I floated around looking for who I was and while I was on my mission in San Antonio Texas, I found that my ability to relate to people and how the gospel was kind of like making products and services that could make their lives better. I got all my degrees after I was 30 years old, but I got all three in less than 7 years. I felt like Marketing was my gift. I graduated from The University of Redlands and embarked on a whirlwind tour of the world helping companies build Self-Service kiosks. I worked on the Redbox DVD dispensing kiosk and the Kodak PictureMaker kiosk team for almost 5 years at Flextronics International. I love being part of making things that change people's lives.!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the spirit of the Lord in my heart and mind gives me more peace of mind than anything else in this world ever has. I have seen the Lord's work allover the world. I love going to church in other countries and seeing the same Gospel being taught on the same Sunday all over the planet. Whether its in houses with dirt floors in Mexico or in Strip Malls in Texas or Office Buildings in Germany or Mandarin Speaking Wards in Toronto, I always feel at home.

How I live my faith

I have served as a counselor to two wonderful bishops and as a High Counselor for the Pensacola Stake in Florida, but honestly my favorite calling has always been as home teacher and now my new calling as the IT specialist for the Highland Utah 15th Ward is about as cool of a calling as I can get. I like helping the Lord's servants use the technology that Satan seems to have cornered on the internet and television and use the exact same technology for the Lord's purposes of saving His children.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Ben Wheeler
The Atonement is the Lord's willingness to have done exactly what we needed to return us into the presence of our Heavenly Father when this life is over. But, it is NOT a trophy in a case at the end of the championship season. It is real and it is something we can hold onto throughout every day of our lives. His spirit is always there for us to cling to when we can't seem to carry ourselves. He will lift us up, he will carry us and he will drag us to the finish line if that is what we need to get us home to our Heavenly Family! Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Ben Wheeler
The First Vision is the moment that the Lord chose to appear to His chosen Prophet to restore the Kingdom of God back to the Earth for the last time in preparation for the 2nd Coming of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ephesians 4:5-6 (KJV) One Lord, one faith, one baptism. The Lord has always worked His will through men that he calls to be prophets. How could he do anything thing differently than what he did when he was on the earth prior to his crucifixion in Jerusalem? Twelve Apostles, Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthoods, Temples, etc... How else could he have done it then the perfect example that he showed us when He walked the earth? God the Father and HIs son Jesus Chris appeared to Joseph Smith in a grove of trees in Palmyra, New York and the world has been nothing but better from that day forward! Show more Show less
