Hi I'm Blair

I am a husband and father of four. I enjoy family road trips, family dinner time and my kid's band concerts, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, a father of four (3 girls, 1 boy), and I love to fix things around the house. I was born in California, raised in Montana and Utah, and lived in Oregon, Idaho, Utah, New Jersey and Illinois. I raced BMX when I was a teenager. Having lived on both ends and in the middle of the country, we have been able to travel and see lots of historic sites. Family road trips are a favorite thing to do in the summer. My oldest daughter has had lots of health challenges - read her story at the bottom.

Why I am a Mormon

My Great-Great-Grandfather was converted in 1833 in upstate New York. In reading his journal, I learned that he was converted after he read the Book of Mormon and felt the Spirit touch him, so he knew it was true. I was born into the church, but consider myself a convert because I had a similar experience as my G-G-Gpa with the Book of Mormon. My life is better because of having the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I am a better husband, a better father, a better friend, a better citizen and co-worker and neighbor. It gives me direction in life, in how I conduct myself, whether in a personal setting or business. I also know who I am... I am a child of God! We all are!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to treat people as Jesus Christ would. Family time is precious, so we try hard to have everyone home at dinner time. We sit around the table and share what happened that day. I think we laugh more than we eat! We also read scriptures together so we can learn more about Christ. Family prayer is how we begin and end each day.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Blair
Faith is like trust. It is something that moves you to action. If you trust someone, you will act differently than if you don't trust them. If you have faith in Jesus Christ, you will act differently as well. Increasing your faith takes practice... believing something that Christ taught and putting Him to the test, to see if it really works. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Blair
A testimony is knowing something is true. It can only come from the source of all truth, our Heavenly Father. We study a subject, think about what we studied, and then ask Him if it is true. Anyone can get an answer to their prayers! Show more Show less
