Hi I'm Blake Dowling

I was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. I have 4 older brothers and I love sports.

About Me

I love playing and watching almost all sports, especially basketball. I spent two years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Milan, Italy, and I'm currently a student at Brigham Young University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought to my life. By following Christ's example and trying to be like Him, I see that the Lord has blessed my life in many ways. Also, God's plan for us is the greatest message of hope in this life, and it is one of the reasons I live this gospel. The Book of Mormon has helped me feel closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and it has given me the knowledge of God's plan - the Plan of Salvation - for us. Through Christ and His Atonement, we are able to return to live with God again, and we are able to live with our families forever. My family is a huge part of my life, and I want to be able to be with them forever. The gospel has brought us close together.

How I live my faith

The most simple, yet fulfilling way to live my faith is by attending church every Sunday, and reading the scriptures and saying my prayers everyday. I also go to the temple on a frequent basis.
