Hi I'm Blake

I grew up in Colorado. I love music and play numerous instruments. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, being outdoors, and the German language. I can play acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, tuba, baritone, and trumpet. I love to be outside! Hiking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, or almost any other recreational activity that I have tried, I thoroughly enjoy. I took 5 years of German in high school and now have been called to serve as a missionary in the Frankfurt, Germany mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a non-member in the Lutheran church. I was young, so my memory is rather faded on the proceedings. But when my dad remarried my step-mom who is LDS, I was exposed to it for years. Ultimately I started being taught the lessons and it all seemed to make sense and I was baptized. I haven't looked back. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches of loving others, forgiveness for others as well as yourself through repentance, and just trying to be a better person than you were the day before.

How I live my faith

In high school I attended early morning seminary classes every day! I actively attend church and the temple! I love to find service projects in which I can utilize my work ethic to help people. I have recently been called to serve as a missionary in the Frankfurt, Germany mission, so I have been spending a lot of time getting prepared for that by reading manuals and my scriptures to better prepare myself to spread the gospel.
