BENJAMIN M. JONES
Ben was reared in North Louisiana. The family had a small cattle ranch where Ben learned to cowboy. He rode his first bull at 14. He rodeoed for 4 years in high school and one year in college and played football at LSU. He got an engineering degree and a master’s in theology. He married his high school sweetheart to whom he has been married 42 years. They have 3 children and 9 grandchildren, including a son who is a 14 year veteran of the military. He has worked as an energy explorationist/executive for 42 years and is a lay preacher, through which he has honed his story-telling skill. Ben is a hopeless romantic and optimist. He claims to have read the Book Of Life and skipped to the end and found out God wins in the end.
Benjamin was inspired to bring this story to motion picture to quicken a hunger for God in the hearts of the viewers and to inspire them to live a more virtuous life and to contribute to the healing of those who have experienced traumatic loss.
