Hi I'm Elder Blaylock

I love my family, sports, and the mountains. I try to live life to the fullest, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Elder Blaylock and I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in the Mexico Saltillo Mission. The most important things in my life are my church, my family, my friends and my education. I am the youngest of 7 kids and I love everyone of my siblings. However they have all moved on to having their own families so I rely on my friends and more importantly Jesus Christ for an example and support. I enjoy playing sports, particularly volleyball and basketball, and being in the mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and happiness it brings me. As a young adult many people don't know exactly where they are going in their life, it is a time of great contemplation and questioning. I, however, have never questioned who I want to be because ever since I was a kid I have known that I am a Child of God who loves me. I know that God has a plan for all of His children to return to Him. I also know that He has a specific plan for each of us and I know through my experiences that as I strive to live that plan and please my God and Eternal Father, He blesses me and I am happier then at any other time. I know that God loves His children and He wants the best for us. He sent his son Jesus Christ to die for us so that we could overcome our temptations and sins and afflictions so that we can be perfect through Him. I have experienced a great joy through living this gospel and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

How I live my faith

Serving as a missionary I have a unique way of living my faith that requires very much of me. Every day I get up early in the morning, get ready for the day then I study the scriptures and other sources from our living prophets for two hours. I then will spend the majority of the remainder of my day out serving others, finding people to teach and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a missionary my entire day is spent serving others and serving Jesus Christ. I live my faith by willfully and happily choosing to live this lifestyle because I love Jesus Christ.
