Hi I'm Mariah Blaylock

I am an avid Photographer, small town girl, a Missionary in the Georgia Atlanta North Mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a small town girl who just loves having fun. I mostly just love spending time with my family. I am attending BYU-Idaho and Currently Serving a full time mission for the church in Atlanta, Georgia North Mission. Go bulldogs. I love being a photographer. It is what I love to do most. When ever I take a simple picture of the trees, mountains or sky, That picture can relate to your life or situation that you are currently in. You can look at that picture and feel simply beautiful. This is how I express myself through the click of a Nikon D90 camera. I also love to sing and play the guitar. Whenever I was feeling so down on myself and almost in a depressed state I would just always remember to sing. This is how I survived through those times. Someone who meets me and in the first 5 mins will know that I am always singing or humming and even whistling.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed to find out for myself if this is true. I recieved a small and peacefull answer that this is the True church of Jesus Christ upon this earth. If you have a sincere heart and real intent to know if this is really the plan to happiness, I know for a fact that you will recieve an answer and he will reveal himself to you with a peace of love in your heart and mind. I love this church because it is centered around Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father and Families. I am so dear to my family and through this gospel you can be with you family forever. This brings comfort to my soul. I know that Jesus Christ died for me on the cross. He took upon all of our sins so that we can be forgivin of our mistakes. I know that to be true because I have seen him bless my life through what we call the Atonement. I know that Heavenly Father loves me. I am a daughter of god and that he wants me to be happy. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God to restore the church of Christ. He sacrificed so much to bring forth this gospel all in Jesus's name. I know that through our trails and troubles in the this life we can pray to our God and ask him to help us. and if we have faith in him. He can bring forth maricles you wouldnt even imagine. I am so thankful for this gospel. I wouldnt be the person I am today if I didnt have Jesus Christ helping me every step of the way. I am thankful that I could be a missionary and to teach people who are searching for truth and peace. I know that one day I will meet Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father eye to eye and I will be able to tell them that I did my best in this life so that I could live with them again. I know it to be true and I cant deny it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love being able to serve people and teach people the importance of coming unto Christ. I love teaching people to know that our Heavenly Father loves us and wants the best for us. It brings joy to my life to watch others find that happiness they had been looking for.
