Hi I'm Blayke

I am an Idahoan at heart where I learned to love to run. I am a student at BYU-I. I am also a future missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run. I'm not as crazy as some other runners but I can't live without it. I just finished my first half marathon and plan on doing a half Iron Man sometime. I basically love doing anything that involves the outdoors, traveling, working out and everything that is food (especially chocolate). If you ask my friends I am always either working out or stuffing my face. I am also serving a mission soon. I was called to serve in the Dominican Republic and I am ecstatic to go!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because there is nothing on this Earth that could make me happier. His gospel teaches of happiness, living with God, our Heavenly Father again. This church brings hope and peace. I have been a member my whole life. Some would argue that it's because I was raised in it. This is not true. I have seen what this gospel can do for our lives. I know that this is the true church. If it was not the church of God, then how can you explain the eternal blessing we can gain? I have the choice to be part of this church and I do it wholeheartedly. It is because of my savior, Jesus Christ, that I get to live with my Heavenly Father again. It is because He was willing to die for my sins, that I can live in peace and have an everlasting joy. Being a Mormon and participating in His gospel is the greatest blessing I have ever had.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the small and simple things. If I truly do my best to follow Christ's example, I know that I will be happy. Doing my best is a sign of my gratitude for what He has done for me. I pray, I read and study my scriptures. I try to be the best daughter, sister, friend, student, community member etc. I know if I work hard to be like Christ, I can help others and I do that by being the best me.
