Hi I'm Blake

I grew up in Utah and am attending Weber State University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to fold origami and juggle anything and everything that can be juggled. I am going to college to become a Physician's Assistant for a Pediatrician. I love little kids and I love being an uncle to all of my brother's and sister's kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this gospel, but my faith goes so much deeper than that. I know living in Utah puts up some barriers right then and there, simply because of it's connotation, but I'm a Mormon because I chose to be. I've been shown that God lives and loves me and that his Son, Jesus Christ died and lives for me and I'm a Mormon because of that.

How I live my faith

I am 18 years old so I love to hang around with the youth in my neighborhood and I very much enjoy teaching when I get the chance. I love to read the bible and pray whenever I get the chance.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Blake
Not at all. The LDS church promotes agency. It is a priesthood duty for all able young men to serve, but it is always given as an option and as for the young women, it is their choice to serve a little later in t heir lives, but I know that they change lives in such a way that I've never seen a man be able to do.

What is the priesthood?

Blake
It is something that I hold dear and am proud to have in my family. I've seen it bring about miracles, which is characteristic of this church. Show more Show less
