Hi I'm Blake

I grew up in Colorado. I love music, singing, and theater. I enjoy reading. I am an Eagle Scout. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up with a deep passion for music. Some of my favorite memories involve singing around the piano with my family. All through high school I participated in choirs, musicals, plays, theater classes, and also dance classes. I also love setting down with a good book to read. Some of my favorite series are Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Michael Vey. I also love camping and being outside. Each year my family would take at least one week to go camping and enjoy the world that our Heavenly Father created.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a member of the church. All of my life I have been surrounded by people who were telling me that it is true. I don't know when it happened, but little by little, I started to know for myself that it was true. But that is not all. I have tried it, tested it, and discovered for myself that it works. It also makes sense to my mind and soul. It provides comfort and peace in my life. I have come to know the power and the strength of the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that he suffered and died for me. I have had my prayers answered and I know that our Father in Heaven listens and cares about each of us and takes time to hear our prayers. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that it has been translated through Joseph Smith by the power and authority of God. I have prayed and felt the love and assurances of my Savior through the Holy Ghost. I have felt Him testify to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps to give the complete Gospel of Christ to all who seek it. I know that we are guided by a prophet today who, as in days of old, counsels with the Lord to direct this church and to help each member come unto Christ. This testimony is the foundation of my life and the reason that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day of my life. I always love going home teaching and being able to help serve others in any way that I can. One of my more recent callings has been as a home teaching assurance coordinator. I would help others with their home teaching if they were unable to make visits, or I would make special visits to members that the leaders of the congregation wanted to give more focus and love to.
