Hi I'm Blake

I'm studying to be a veterinarian. I'm a history buff. I know who I am: I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! I'm studying to be a Veterinarian. I love to cook and eat amazing food. I love my family, and I love to spend time with friends. Right now, I live in England as a missionary for the church. I thrive on sharing what I know and what I believe with other people. I love to read and learn. I love spending time outdoors- it's where I feel closest to God. I also love history- especially geneology. It's great to see where we came from, so we can better understand where we are going.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've received an answer that these things are true. Sometimes the most difficult thing to do is finding the humility to ask for answers. We have to accept the fact that we don't know everything. We're not as clever as we originally thought. For me, it took a long time to ask God if this church was true. But when I did, I received my answer, and it was undeniable. That is the beauty of this faith- it's not so much about how long it takes to receive our answer- it's all about the fulfillment that comes when we get it. Christ is more concerned about bringing all of us home. The answer we receive is only the beginning. We can continue to learn and grow as we follow Jesus Christ. Every time we ask a question, we can receive another aswer- another witness- that these things are true. It doesn't matter if we joined the church yesterday, or 90 years ago- everyone can receive continuing revelation.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a very natural thing to do. I know what's right and what's wrong, and I do my best to follow Christ's example. It's easy- when you see someone who needs a little bit of help, help them. When you have what they need, give it to them. It's just like the golden rule- do unto others what you would want them to do to you. Smiling is also very important. Smiling only takes a second, but it can change someone's life- especially your own! Life is just too short to be serious all the time. In our faith, we believe that there is so much more to life than the day-to-day activities we are involved in. We like to look at the bigger picture. And that bigger picture looks great!
