Hi I'm Ben

I love to sing. I'm an Eagle Scout. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing. I have been in Madrigals, Honor Choir and All-State Choir. My goal is to be a professor of music at a college. I just finished my first year of college and I will put the rest on hold until I get back from my mission to South America. I want people to experience true joy in their lives which is only found in our Savior, Jesus Christ and His teachings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had a personal witness that this is the true church. I have had spiritual experiences in multiple circumstances where the Spirit testified to me. When I was fourteen years old, the Brigham City Temple in Utah was built. I had the opportunity to help celebrate the dedication. While we were there we had a testimony meeting and just hearing the testimonies about the new temple and its purpose, I had a witness from the Spirit that what they were saying was true. It pierced my heart and was so personal, I cannot deny it. Temples allow the opportuntiy for families to be sealed together forever. If we are sealed in the Temple by one having proper authority from God, when we die we will still be together as a family. It is not just "until death do you part". I love my family and I am so thankful to God that we can be together as a family unit forever.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week. As a priest in our church, I have the privelage of blessing the sacrament. We take the sacrament to the elderly or sick that can not attend regular meetings. One time an elderly spanish speaking woman attended church. I had the opportunity to bless the sacarment in spanish and the Spirit was really strong. I thought about the words to the prayer, more earnestly than usual. It became even more personal, in that Jesus Christ suffered those things just for me and that he did it because he loved me.
