Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Utah, but I love to travel. I love playing soccer and the piano, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Utah Valley! I started playing soccer when I was 4 and I've been playing it ever since. I've also played the piano and saxophone while growing up. I graduated from high school in 2017 and I am leaving in September on my mission to California, Rancho Cucamonga! After my mission I plan to go to Brigham Young University for college and maybe go study abroad in China.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both born in the church, so I have always grown up in the church. I love this church! Whenever I have any questions or doubts, I always find that without my religion life doesn't really make much sense or have much purpose. Everything makes sense when you put it into an eternal perspective. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book. I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who truly saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that Heavenly Father loves us, and that he wants all of us to return back to him. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is very real and is infinite and eternal. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the fullness of the gospel and truly is Christ's church!

How I live my faith

Over the years in my ward I have held four or five leadership positions over the youth my age. I really appreciate these opportunities to serve my friends as they have taught me a lot and have help prepared me to go on a mission. I have also served as a Family History Consultant where I would help people in my ward with any family history questions they come across. I have also given talks in church as well as teaching lessons in several different classes including youth and adult classes. I went home teaching with my dad every month where we would visit two families in our ward.
