Hi I'm Benj Suwyn

I grew up in Utah. I love the outdoors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to go hunting and fishing. I love being engaged in outside activities. I love playing sports, especially wrestling and football.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the church before I was born so I was always raised in the church. They took me to church every Sunday and then when I was 8 years old I was baptized. I kind of relied on the testimony of my parents for a long time until I was 15 years old. When I was 15 I struggled with a lot of things and didn't know what to do. Then at church there was a talk on the Atonement of Jesus Christ which helped me realize what I needed to do to fix my struggles. I prayed about it and the spirit strongly led me to do the things that I needed to to repent. After I repented for the things that I had done I felt good inside. After that every time I mess up I know that I can pray and ask my heavenly father for help and he will answer my prayer and give me the help that I need. He will also give me strength to overcome anything that might come into my life. I know that the church is true and I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he died for everyone that we might all be able to return and live with our families and our Heavenly Father again. I know that The Book of Mormon is true and that it can help guide you in your life and give you answers that you might need and that it can bless you in so many ways. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by saying my prayers and reading my scriptures every morning. I go to church on Sundays and participate in the lessons that are being taught. I also try and go to the temple as often as possible.
