Hi I'm Blake

I'm a student studying business. I love playing sports. I absolutely love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of six children in my family, 4 boys and 2 girls. I grew up playing baseball, going through little league up to high school. My brothers and I also enjoy various boardings sports; snowboarding, skateboarding,longboarding, and wakeboarding. We have a great time as a family participating in these activities. I love listening to and discovering new music. I served a mission in Mexico, which is a wonderful place. I am currently studying business and hope to an entrepreneur.

Why I am a Mormon

There was a point in my life that I began to search for meaning, purpose, and direction. As I searched for answers through prayer and scripture study, I felt closer to God and felt the love that He has for me individually. I know that God wants for me to be happy. I came to know that He truly lives and that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to earth so that it could be possible for us to return back to Him. Being a member of the church I have found happiness. I know what God expects of me and wishes for me to become. The happiness and joy that I feel in my life is a result of doing the things that God expects of me. The reason I'm a Mormon is because by being one I have found meaning, purpose, and direction.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life by following the example of Jesus Christ. Obviously, I'm not perfect or would ever claim to be but I try to improve myself each day. Being honest and having integrity in my day to day interactions with other people is really important to me. I always try to treat people with love and respect as well. In the church I am in charge of the spiritual development of 72 other young men my same age. I enjoy the opportunity I have to get to know each person and see the great things that they are doing as well as the talents that they have. I also enjoy preparing lessons for this group of young men and hope that as a result each will evaluate how they can live closer to the example of Christ. Above all, serving other people with love has been one of the greatest blessings in my life.
