Hi I'm Blake Garner

I am a Landscaper. I am a photographer.I am a Musician. And I am a Mormon Missionary.

About Me

I am from Lethbidge Alberta Canda. I Love to play the piano,as well as the trumpet. I love to take pictures of all of the beautiful landscapes and animals that god has created.I really love to serve other people and the comunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so thankful to be a part of this religion. I am so glad to say that I know who God is and that he really loves and cares about me. I know that I can live with my family and God after this life. I am so glad that I know why I am here. Where I came from and especially where I am going. I find lots of answers to my questions in a little blue book. The Book Of Mormon. It truly is another testament of Jesus Christ.  

How I live my faith

I attend church service every week. I go to learn and to feel of Gods love. But most importantly I partake of the sacrament. I always feel better when I partake of the sacrament. I know that the gospel blesses and changes lives. I have seen it change lives for the better. This church truly dose bring people closer to god. And I know that I can live with him again If I live the commandments and follow the council of our prophet. This is Gods church once again established on the earth. I am currently a missionary serving in B.C.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Blake Garner
 In The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints we dont have a paid clergy. everything that is donated to the church such as our tithing go's towards builing up the church. It is gods money. no one along the line gets paid. no one pockets the money. We fulfill are callings by service." When we are in the service of our fellow men we are only in the service of our God" We all here together and we help each other. It is usually through other people that god answers our prayers. Since god wants us to follow the example of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was a perfect example of selfless service. So thats why there is no paid clergy the money that is donated goes towards church buildings and temples and other church material like books and teaching materials.   Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Blake Garner
God has a body of flesh and bone. He is our father. Like any father he loves his children. We are all sons and daughters of god. He loves me and he loves you. He knows who you are and he knows who I am. I know that Hevenly father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are all seprate, but have the same purpose. That purpose is to help us live happy and joyful lives. We also have been blessed to have the gospel so that we can find joy and happiness and also so we can return to live with our father again. He Loves us so so much. I know that god loves me alot.  Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Blake Garner
 We as mormons believe that families are forever. What I mean by this is that after we die we can live with our families again in the next life along with God and Jesus Christ. But in order for this to happen you and your family need to be sealed in the Temple. We also need to strive our hardest to live the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that I am working to do everything I can so that I can live with my family again. Wouldn't it be great to be able to live with your family or loved one again in the next life?   Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Blake Garner
Joesph Smith was confused at the age of 14 about which church was true. He noticed that they all preached different things. He then came across the scripture in the Bible James 15 It says "if you lack wisdom let him ask of god." so he did. He went and knelt in a grove of trees and said a prayer and asked god what church was true. Joeseph smith recorded his experiance " I saw a piller of light exactly over my head above the brightness of the sun which decended till it fell opon me. When the light rested opon me I saw 2 personages who glory defy all discription standing above me in the air Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Blake Garner
Say If you had the cure to lets say cancer, What would you do? You would share it right. You would want everyone to know about it because it can help people. It's the same with the restored truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This can help people find peace in knowing the answers to lifes greatest questions can help people. For example it will help someone to know that God lives and knows who they are and that he knows about the trials that you have faced and are facing. I want to share the principles that we know to be true so that just the the cure to cancer people can have it and find Joy peace and a life full of happines.  I am a mormon missionary. You may have seen me in British Columbia. Show more Show less
