Hi I'm Blake

I love riding and racing dirtbikes, snowmobiles and pretty much anything that will go fast!! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE being outdoors!! Riding and racing dirt bikes, snowmobiles during the winter and taking the boat out to the lake during the summer to do some wake boarding!! As I was growing up sports took a MAJOR roll in my life!! I love being with my family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members of the church for a long time!!! I was baptized when I was eight years old like a lot of members of the church in utah... But that doesn't mean I haven't struggled with doubt before! There comes a time in your life where your backed up to the wall of "Its either true or its false.... and I'm going to find out!? When I went to find out... Heavenly Father gave me the answer that it's true! He still gives me that answer time and time again! I've seen SO many miracles in my life... I know that God truly is our loving heavenly father and that He loves and is aware of each and every one of us! I think one of the big reason I choose to follow this road is because I feel like as I've kept the commandments of God and have lived a life according the teachings of the gospel... I've been happy!

How I live my faith

Well.. right now... i'm a little big different. I'm a full time missionary in Taiwan!! so the way I live my faith is by sharing it with EVERYONE here in Taiwan!! I love taking the gospel to all of my Brothers and Sisters here in Taiwan! Before my mission, I lived my faith by trying my best to be a good example to those around me! I feel like being a christian is more that just going to church on Sunday or when I have time... It's about how I live my everyday life!! The greatest sign of character is how you act when no body else is looking.... when it's just you, are you still going to follow Jesus Christ!!!?

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Blake
We believe that baptism is an essential saving ordinance... or in other words, its something that we ABSOLUTELY need in order to return and live with our Heavenly Father!!! Just as a police officer has authority to write us a speeding ticket.... only someone holding authority from God can help us get baptized!!! If a person helps us get baptized with out holding the authority of God.... It's just like a ordinary person giving us a ticket.... that guy might have had good intent... but in the end that ticket is useless! We believe that this authority to act in God's name has been given to us again! (restored). I know that through being baptized by someone holding the priesthood of God (his authority) we can have the opportunity for a new start!!! Show more Show less
