Hi I'm Blake

I grew up in Utah. I play guitar in a metal band and I am a Mormon.

About Me

A little background on me is that I used to be a little skate punk in Jr. High. I skated almost everyday until 9th grade when I had to have spinal fusion surgery in order to correct a major case of scoliosis. My surgery changed my posture and also I wasn't able to do much for 6 months after my surgery. Insead of getting back into skating I decided to stick with music and have been an avid guitar player ever since.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church. Both of my parents are active members and have brought me to church with them my whole life. This is not why I am Mormon, however. There are plenty of people who were raised in the church and aren't members anymore. The reason that I am a Mormon is because I found the answer for myself. Through prayer and reading the scriptures, I have learned for myself that the Book Of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. For a while in my younger years, I lived my faith not really knowing why, just knowing that I should do it. Now I understand why, because the gosple brings happiness, and I love it!

How I live my faith

Not everyone in my life has the same beliefs that I have, but I am not afraid to let others know what my beliefs are. I try my hardest to set a good example. I avoid using bad language, look for ways to serve others, try to keep a positive attitude, and try to be a fun person to be around. I have found that the best way to show people what my faith is is to live it every day, and that is exactly what I try to do.
