Introducing the amazing Ben Butcher!

Hi, my name is Ben Butcher and I am twenty five and I got Down’s Syndrome.

I’m a Senior Soldier in the Salvation Army and my Corps is in Cheshire.

Well, what can I say about Bible Journaling? 

It started when I saw my Mum doing journaling and I looked at her pictures 

and verses and it inspired me and challenged me to do the same. 

At first she posted two of my pictures and verses for me but then she joined

me to the Bible Journaling Community. I looked at other peoples pictures on 

Facebook and WOW! they looked spectacular!

I love Bible Journaling and it draws me close to God and to see what plans He 

has for me and to go deeper in my faith with Him. I love being part of this group

and my faith is stronger every day and I encounter God in my journey as I walk 

with Him.

This is so wonderful to be part of this amazing, talented, Godly group and I am 

glad to be a part of it. This is revival, BRING IT ON!

Ben has recently told his mum that he wants to be an ambassador or an advocate for people with disabilities to show them that you can still do things and be part of things - he wants people to know that they are important and have something to offer! 


  1. Well done Ben. We are proud of you!

  2. Good on you Ben, you are so inspiring, thank you. Jane Barton x

  3. Thank you, Ben - you are an inspiration!

  4. Ben you are a great witness for the Lord and I love your work!

  5. Awesome blog post Ben! I found it really encouraging, I find Bible journaling deepens my faith too. :-) thanks for taking the time to write this post, I really enjoyed it. :-)))

  6. I just love this Ben, it's great to hear from someone who, yes has a disability, but who is walking with God and living out his faith all the same!! I spent a lot of years working with children and young people like you and my dearest dream for them was that they would meet with the Lord and He with them...and you are showing them (and their parents/ carers/teachers) that not only is it possible, but it's something dear to the Lord's heart too! I will be praying for you, that your dreams will come true, through the power of the Holy Spirit 😊

  7. Ben I am completely encouraged. By your message I really scence jesus shining within you.
