Hi I'm Blake
and I'm a Mormon.
I'm 21 years old and i am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love to drive anything with power! i off road in my jeep, i ride ATV's like im being chased and I pretty much have the drifting skills of a pro. I love to play any sport and especially excelle at Dodgeball, which is more of a calling than a sport to me. I love my family, our savior and our Heavenly Father, they mean everything to me and i work hard to share with others what i have. I would say normal doesnt exist and so i am just kinda me. I play airsoft, i paintball, i played soccer for many years competitively, i was recruited for the junior olympics for running but turned it down for soccer, i played laccrosse and i dated as much as i could. I believe that going fast is better therapy than a psychatrist. I believe that life is what you make it and often we make some dumb things and that's why Christ did what we call the Atonement. I have a family of a mother and father who are my best friends, 5 sisters and 3 brothers who i would do anything for, i have 17 going on 18 neices and nephews and i know our families can be together forever. I am going to have a double major in Political science and business and then its on to Law school. I plan to retire to own and cook for my own high class restaruant and to be a moral and ethical officer in our government. I can wiggle my ears, i love making and watching movies, i I enjoy video games and spending time with my best friends, who are also serving the savior on their missions in Brazil, Mexico, Italy and so forth. I believe life should be fulfilling and not just full, I believe that each day we create our future and that as we focus our lives on the savior, all things fall into place for our good.
Why I am a Mormon
A lot of people I meet say, "O well you grew up Mormon didn’t you?" and although I reply, "thankfully yes" I know that each member of our church is truly a convert. We must be, the only way to follow Christ is to read his words and ask him which church we should go to. I have personally studied the scriptures and I have pondered over them, and I have asked God if this is all true and what I should be a part of. And I can tell you that I have gotten an answer from God that this is his church and that the Book of Mormon is true, and an answer from God is stronger than the gates of hell which try to get me to deny what I know to be true. It's simple “by their fruits ye shall know them" (matt 7:20) try the fruit and you will know too.
How I live my faith
A man is but his thoughts and desires, so i live my faith by first thinking of Christ and desiring to be with him again and then i act, I do as he would have me do. Each day we choose who we will serve and we deside to either have the joy of the gospel or the misery of the world and satan. I love everyone and i try diligently to show them that i do, i share with them all that i have, especially my testimony of our savior and his Atonement. I am a servant of God, I am a full time missionary, and i am just a young man trying to live as Christ would have me live. I know that i am doing whats right because i feel the saviors love daily as i share the truth of this message.
