Hi I'm Blake Williams

Born and Raised in Pocatello, Idaho. I love sports. I'm currently serving a mission in the Anaheim,California area and love it!

About Me

I have lived in Idaho my whole life and have grown up in a family of five. I graduated from High School in 2014 and then attended college for a year and had a great experience. I grew up playing football and think it's the best sport ever invented. Most of my life has been centered around family, my religion, and sports. I love my family more than anything and am so grateful for the love and support my parents and siblings have shown me throughout my life. My favorite hobby would be trying to make others laugh. I believe "life is to be enjoyed, not endured (President Gordon B. Hinkley)!"

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into a family where there was a strong foundation in our religion. I have chosen to continue in this religion because I have sought for myself through study and prayer if this church is true, and found that, without a doubt, it is. I cannot deny the many great blessings and tender mercies I have received from a loving Father in Heaven by living according to the teachings of The Chruch of Jesus Chrsit of Latter Day Saints. God loves us. I love Him. He has a perfect plan for us. Because of His love, He has given us His own Son, Jesus Christ. I know that Christ suffered and died for us each individually so that we could receive all our Father in Heaven desires for us. Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that God gave us the scriptures to teach us of His son and the way we can return to live with Him. I know that the Book of Mormon is evidence to the Restoration of Jesus Christ's Chruch to the Earth today and contains all the teachings we need to receive Eternal life. It is also evidence that God continues to work through prophets today and that through the Prophet Joseph Smith the true Gospel was restored and it is still guided by a living prophet named Thomas S. Monson. Through abiding by he precepts of God's word, found in the Book of Mormon and Bible and the guidance of His living prophet, I know I will see my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, again, and that I will be able to experience eternal joy with my family.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by following the example Jesus Christ gave us and striving to live as He did. In doing that, I try to develop His attributes little by little. I try to serve others in every opportunity and help those who are in need. I am currently serving a mission in Anaheim, California and have come to see the infinite blessings that living according to the teachings found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings to all who seek to have Faith in Him, Repent, Are Baptized, Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Endure to the End. While I do my best to apply these principles in my life, I invite others to do the same so they can have eternal happiness that our Father in Heaven desires for all of His children.
