Hi I'm Ben Cloud

I was born in Ohio, Raised in Utah. I'm a martial artist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love weapons. I use swords a lot and would love to be a fencer. I have 5 brothers and we are fostering two other kids, a boy and a girl. I am going on a mission and plan to go to college when I come home.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church so I haven't really experienced any other churches. When I was about 14, I started to work and realized that there are a lot of people out there who don't believe or worship the way I do. I got a little confused but continued to read The Book of Mormon. I know without a doubt that this is the true gospel on the earth. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that He lives and loves us. In order for His church to be here now, it had to have come from the man who translated the Book of Mormon and that man is Joseph Smith. I know that he was the Prophet that restored the true church on the earth today. The gospel has brought happiness to me and my family. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my classes at church. I try to be friendly with everyone at school.When I worked in the elementary, I saw that the kids looked up to me because I live my faith. It helped me remember to be a good example because I knew that they saw everything I did. I am kind and considerate to the customers I serve at work. I help my family and participate in prayers, scriptures and Family Home Evenings. I make a point to draw close to Heavenly Father through my personal prayers and scripture study.
