Hi I'm B-laine

I'm a Convert, I'm a Missionary, I'm a Grandma's BOY!, I'm a Cowboy, I'm a Thug, AND I AM A STRAIGHT UP MORMON!

About Me

I grew up in the beautiful Gila Valley of Arizona and you can bet your bottom dollar that i love the sun! I love the summer time in Arizona hanging out with good friends, going to the lake, playing sports, just doing what we do in the summer nights!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up catholic and i also attend a Non-denominational church for awhile. Towards the end of my senior year in high school my friends started coming to me and talking about the church. I wasn't really interested and i was content with where i was at that time. I remember one day my friend called me up and all he said to me was, " hey the missionaries are at my house and they want to talk to you." I really couldn't think of a quick enough excuse, and not to mention i was really close to his house.... For some reason, something told me to go over that day. I met with the missionaries and they answered some of the questions that i had. It took a while to get a answer for my self to know if what the missionaries were teaching me was true. It wasn't until i truly wanted to know if the message was true, did i get my answer. But after a few big trials that entered my life, the Lord showed me the truthfulness of the message that the missionaries and my friends were sharing with me. I will never regret the decision that i made to join THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS. It has truly changed my life forever and i am so grateful for my friends and for the example they have set for me. I have never felt Gods love so much. I know He is real and that he does answer prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by, simply practicing what I preach and being obedient to the Lords commandments. When you find Faith follow it! Act upon the promptings of the Holy Ghost! Do what God tells you not what you tell yourself. One thing that I have realized in my life, is that fact that it is cool to be good! I love having standards that I can follow that will protect me. I know that they are from my Heavenly Father and they are put there to keep me from digging myself into a huge hole. I LOVE my Savior so I want to serve him in every way possible. After i got baptized it led me to want to serve a mission. I am currently Serving in the Oregon Portland Mission, and it has been the most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my life. A total life changing experience. Some one once told me that " the best way to strengthen your own testimony is to share your own." I have found that to be so true as I have been serving. I can promise you, that if your testimony is lacking. Get out there and share yours, you'll be surprised how much yours is strengthened.
