Hi I'm Blake

I'm a born member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was born in Bountiful, Utah.

About Me

I enjoy being outdoors and love sports, especially Basketball. I love to read, Hang out with my friends, and learn new things. I am Currently 18 years old, serving a mission in the Philippines, Tacloban, speaking Cebuano.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have been shown the light of Heavenly Father. I have felt the holy ghost. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I have felt the truth of these words. I have a testimony of the Savior, and the atonement which he performed so I could be forgiven of my sins and to be with my family for all eternity in my loving Heavenly Father's presence.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through example, whether it's my own or others. I love to apply my faith by serving others physically and emotionally. I once was on a youth council, where I came together with others my age and planned events for the other youth in my stake.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Blake
I believe that Eternal Life is real, and not only is it real, but it is also for anyone to obtain. When our time on this earth ends, and when we are resurrected, We will be judged on the things we did during our earthly life, and be rewarded according to our earthly actions. If we remain strong in the faith during our earthly life, then we will be rewarded with an eternal life with our family in the presence of Heavenly Father Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Blake
Baptism is an essential part of our ability to return to Heavenly Father after this life. We teach "Baptism by Immersion" where a person is fully placed in the water and then risen up, representing that person's new life as a clean member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Everyone needs to be baptized, but they cannot be baptized until they feel a real desire to be baptized and when a child reaches the age of 8. Until A child reaches the age of 8, they are not held accountable for their sins. Baptism, followed by the laying of the hands, allows a person to be clean and to have the gift of the Holy Ghost, which allows constant companionship with the Spirit. Show more Show less
