Hi I'm Blake

I'm from Salt Lake, I love music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Blake Jake Nielson. I grew up in South Jordan, Utah. Like, most people from Utah, I love being outdoors. I love spending time in the mountains, hiking, fishing, backpacking, rock climbing, skateboarding, snowboarding, camping, sitting around fires with friends etc. I've always loved listening to music and playing music. I'm always looking for new music to add to my collection. I served in the Scotland/Ireland Mission for 2 years. It was an amazing experience, and I can honestly say it was the greatest thing that I've ever done. Its changed my whole life and put everything that I've wanted into perspective. My testimony of the Gospel was so greatly increased, because of my mission and I will always be gratefull for those 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because everything I want and everything I need is a direct result of living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Life might not always be "happy days" everyday, but because I know that I'm living the gospel of Christ I have joy. I have peace. Even when times are rough. I have a hope that I wouldn't have otherwise.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a better person everyday. Its a lot easier said than done, but I read a quote in Fortune Cookie that said, "the best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others." I definitely agree with that. I think if we're give up ourselves when its not necassarily convienient we gain more and become more like our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
