Hi I'm Blake

I'm a dad, a mechanical engineering student, an athlete, ... and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love anything that is outdoors! Camping, fishing, hunting, boating, you name it. I believe the world was made for all of us to enjoy... so I do! I am a college student studying Mechanical engineering because I enjoy learning how things work and creating new solutions to problems. Most importantly I am proud to be a husband and father who tries to put family first!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and grandparents are and have been members for as long as I can remember. As a kid I was taught to search for what was true and what made me feel good. I made the personal decision to read scriptures, pray, and go to church. It didn't take long for me to realize what I wanted to do. I knew that what I learned in church was true. I learned that God is my father and Jesus Christ is his son. I learned that they love me and want me to be happy. When I knew these things being a Mormon seemed like an obvious choice. That choice has helped me become the person I want to be. I love my family, have learned to work hard, am more patient, joyful, and optimistic because of that decision.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with others. As I learn about Christ I see that everything he did was for someone else and I have the same opportunity. I try to be like him by serving people who are in need. I love life because I understand it is a time to learn, experience trials, and grow from them. I want to live in a way that helps others realize how great life is and how blessed we are to be here. I have participated in school sports, student government, scouting activities, and many community service projects. I decided to serve as a missionary and have plans to continue to serve others because I want to live my faith. I love to be involved and hope that other people will be just as happy as they follow Jesus Christ.
