Hi I'm Benjamin Plautz

I live in Fuquay NC. I enjoy the intellectual pursuits, and music performance. Above all, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm serving a two year full-time mission in California right now. I'll tell you more when I finish in May of 2018.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it is the only church that offers the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, with which I know no better way of achieving happiness. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I have overcome the most bitter of pains life has treated me with. I know that they will continue, but I have faith that I can be lifted through the trials I face and bare the burdens of mortality.

How I live my faith

I live my faith these days by serving a full-time mission for my church and my God. I know that this is the single best choice I can make for myself in this time of my life. I am pleased to be found worthy to go.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

To quote my mother a bit, "All young men are expected to serve". Expected is the key word here. The Church will never force you to go. Show more Show less
