Hi I'm Blake

Stoked to serve the Lord for 2 years!

About Me

Born and raised in Bradenton, Florida. I belong to a nice little family of 5, including my mama, pop, and 2 beautiful sisters. Couldn't have asked for a better childhood, I've truly been blessed. Did some learning at BYU-Hawaii after I graduated, where I received my mission call to the Brazil, Sao Paulo South Mission! Serving our Heavenly Father has been good times, and I look forward to continue to do so! Heading back to Hawaii after my mission, and eventually transforming into a grown-up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to have been born into this wonderful gospel. I've stuck with the teachings of the church throughout my life because they've brought loads of happiness to myself and my family. It hasn't been a perfectly paved path, but I know the direction I want my life to take, and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a piece of the puzzle I can't live without. I truly believe that our Heavenly Father is running this church through those he has appointed, and every aspect of the gospel is steadily bringing us closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I've got as much changing to do as anybody, but I really do try and let the teachings and example of Jesus Christ guide my life. Super hard at times, especially in a world that gets a little crazier daily, but there's hapiness in the gospel. I try to stay positive, and freely give what I've freely received. The word "karma" might not appear in the Book of Mormon, but you get what you give. Jesus Christ gave so much for us out of nothing but love, and I feel that the more we're able to reciprocate that kind of love, the happier our lives will be.
