Hi I'm Blakeney Hanline

I'm a North Carolinian. I'm a sister and a daughter and a friend. I'm a college student studying History Education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20 year old Junior at Brigham Young University-Idaho majoring in History Education and minoring in TESOL. I love BYUI and I feel so blessed to be a student there. I'm from Charlotte, North Carolina and I love the south and my southern heritage. I love the beach, horseback riding, and basketball. I LOVE college basketball, specifically the Carolina Tar Heels. I have 2 younger sisters that have become my best friends. My parents have raised us in a happy, southern, and strong LDS home. I graduated from North Mecklenburg Highschool. There were over 3,000 students only 4 of us being LDS. It was a wonderful way to grow up. I love the Gospel and I love the life I have because of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I was extremely blessed to be born into an LDS home. I have stayed a Mormon because I know that this is Jesus Christ's gospel. I know that through living this gospel and following Jesus Christ I can find happiness, safety, and peace in this life and hope for eternal life. It's through being a Mormon that I have found Christ, gained a testimony of Him, and felt his reality and love for me. It's through being Mormon that I have become a Christian.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to become like my Savior, Jesus Christ, everyday. I pray to my God and seek His guidance and council daily. I repent when I make mistakes and I go to my church meetings. I read and study the scriptures each day. I attend the temple and bare my testimony. I look to my Redeemer in all I do.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Blakeney Hanline
Mormon missionaries proselyte because Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World and that happy news needs to be shared. We know that true peace and happiness can be found in this life through faith in Jesus Christ and through following Him. We want to share this with all the world and so Mormon missionaries proselyte to spread the good word. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Blakeney Hanline
We believe in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We believe that it's through His grace that we will find eternal life. We believe that our works in this life are not enough, we need grace too. It's through Christ's grace that we are sanctified and that we will be able to return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
