Hi I'm Blaine Ray

I'm a Mormon. I went on a Mormon mission to Chile and later became a Spanish teacher.

About Me

I invented a method of teaching languages called TPRS. In TPRS students learn a language by learning stories. They focus on the story instead of the language. They pick up the language unconsciously. I enjoy traveling. I have been to 102 countries.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always believed in the church. The church inspires good works. I am a better person because of my church membership. Ditractors have a hard time answering the question, "If the LDS church is so bad, why does it do so much good?" The Bible says an evil tree can not produce good fruit. I have always had a testimony.

How I live my faith

I get to teach a lesson twice a month. I enjoy the preparation and the presentation. Since I am a teacher by profession, it is easy for me to give a religous lesson. It is a blessing in my life. I live in Utah most of the year but I live in California during the winter. When I live in California, I fly home to Utah once a month to teach my lesson.
