Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Utah, a member of the church for my whole life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am very interested in Computer Technology, hardware and software. I play many video games, and while I do so, I theorize about how the code is written to produce a result, and how assets and elements are put together in the design process.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of His church. From a very young age I have been learning about the faith and it's teaching. One might say that I am more than qualified for this church, given that I have spent my life studying. But our church is not comprised of blind followers. I truly and earnestly began to believe in His church when I went to a camp with emphasis on teaching us how to teach others. Near the end of the trip, we had a chance to teach others, and test our skills. I have never been good at speaking, so I was very nervous of the situation, but as I began to speak, the words flowed from my mouth in ways that I could never produce myself. During this, I felt power within me. The spirit manafested itself and brought me power. The power I felt was so great, that I felt as I could level the nearby mountains with my bare fist if the Lord had willed it. From then on, I decided to not only live in the gospel, but to also teach, and give others the ability to feel and understand the power of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I have held leadership positions throughout my time in the church, leading others among my age group. Now I am visiting Japan to teach others and give them an opportunity to learn of the faith.
