Hi I'm Blaine

I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married and have 7 children. My youngest daughter was born with Down Syndrome. I also have one beautiful granddaughter. I currently work in the retail business as a store director. I have worked in retail for the past 29 years. I love to run and just recently completed my 27th marathon. I love doing most anything outdoors and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am very grateful for the blessings of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am thankful for the hope and direction it provides for me in my life. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that he lives and knows me personally. I am grateful for His atoning sacrifice and for providing me an opportunity to return and live with Him again. I lost my mom when I was 3 and an older brother prior to that. My father passed away twenty-one years ago. I testify that I will be able to be with them again. I know that families can be together forever. I can't imagine it any other way. This provides great comfort to me during those difficult times. I know we are led today by living prophets and apostles, just as Christ's church was when he was on the earth. I know we have revealed scriptures (Book of Mormon) written for us in our day. I am grateful for the direction they provide me in these very difficult times. I testify to you of their truthfulness. My wife and children bring me tremendous joy and happiness. Knowing that I can be with them forever makes this crazy life worth it. I love my Savior and testify that He lived and died for each of us. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love serving in our church. I currently assist the full time missionaries and enjoy visiting families in our ward. For the past two years I have also really enjoyed serving in our temple as an ordinance worker. I enjoy serving and assisting others. I also enjoy the opportunities to serve in our local mill, thrift store, or storehouse as a volunteer.
