Hi I'm Blaine Turnbow

I'm a small business owner and passionate about two things, my family and sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a small business owner working hard to support my family. I'm a husband and a father of a 2-year old boy and I love my family more than anything. I love all sports, but especially golf, softball, and basketball. I'd like to do a lot more camping and fishing, but rarely have the time.

Why I am a Mormon

Through my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I've learned about God's plan for us as his children. After death we are able to continue living with our families and that provides me with a tremendous amount of comfort. The Book of Mormon has helped me to feel closer to God and I know that it is divinely inspired. I love the camaraderie and fellowship I receive from other members of the church as we learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ together.

How I live my faith

I feel lucky to be able to work with the missionaries assigned to our ward (local congregation). We work together to teach the word of God both to current members of our faith as well as with others who are interested in learning more about our beliefs.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Blaine Turnbow
The Word of Wisdom is code that members of the church follow to stay healthy both physically and spiritually. We view our bodies as gifts from God and try to do all that we can to preserve them as much as possible. This includes abstaining from tobacco products, alcohol, coffee, and illegal drugs.
