Hi I'm Blake R. Nordblad

I have been called to serve a mission in the Guatemala Quetzaltenango Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I attend BYU-Idaho. I love to snow ski, play the piano, weight lift, and ride dirt bikes. I am and Eagle Scout and I graduated high school as a Valedictorian. After serving a mission for the church, I intend to transfer to BYU and major in Neuroscience. I want to become a doctor and help people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and followed the church because my parents did. One Sunday during my sophomore year of high school I decided to take Moroni's challenge after I finished reading the Book of Mormon. I asked Heavenly Father with a sincere desire to know the truth. I finished my prayer and stood up, but I didn't feel anything. Suddenly I felt warm feeling in my chest, especially in my heart, that grew to what seemed like a fire burning inside me. It was then I knew the Book of Mormon was true. If the Book of Mormon is true, then The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a True church. If the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a prophet. The Book of Mormon is True.

How I live my faith

I pray and read the scriptures every day. I love to read from the second half of the Book of Mormon and the New Testament. I love to read about Christ. I attend my church meetings, pay my tithing, and give service as much as I can.
