Hi I'm Benjamin Von

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an Information Systems Masters student, currently studying in Utah. I am from Arizona, and I am married to the love of my life. We have no children, and I love to play basketball. I especially love to watch the Phoenix Suns. I also like to swim and run. Right now I do Drupal Development (web development) for the university where I attend.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I want to be a part of something larger than life. Being a Mormon is definitely not easy at times, but because I know that the fullness of the gospel and the the authority lies in the priesthood ordinances of this church, that is why I have continued in the faith. The way is logical and clear, and I have also received personal revelation through the Holy Spirit that this is where I am supposed to be. If Jesus Christ really appeared to the boy prophet Joseph Smith and restored His true church to the earth, don't you think you should be a part of this organization too? Well, then you have find out if the Book of Mormon was really translated by the gift and power of God. Once you know the Book of Mormon is true then you will come to know more of the divinity of Jesus Christ and that God continues to call prophets in these last days to perform his work. I found out that it is indeed true and that is why I am a Mormon. The way you can become a Mormon is by being baptized by one who holds proper authority after you know it is true for yourself.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the decisions that I make everyday. Normally it is by the individual choices that I make to live an uplifting life everyday. People tend to get caught up in lists of do's and don'ts, but I strive to live by a couple of questions that I ask myself several times throughout each day? Will it uplift me? and also Does it draw me closer to my Savior Jesus Christ? Jesus commanded, "Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect." (3 Nephi 12:48--Book of Mormon)
