Hi I'm Ashley Elizabeth

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey there! As you can probably tell, my name is Ashley! I've been a member of the Church since 2004, and I can honestly say it was the toughest, most passionate, and most rewarding decision I've ever made! I'm a marathon runner, triathlete, and enjoy music, cooking, hanging with friends, and dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Holy Ghost testified to me that the gospel has been restored on this earth. I know in my heart that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church we have today. Before I started investigating the Church, I had many questions about my own faith, but didn't feel there were answers to them. Upon meeting with the missionaries, I began to learn where it is I come from, where I'm going, and how to get there. When I asked if I was everything I had read and heard were true, I got an answer of truth. The rest is history! I love that all of my questions have been answered from that point on, and that I'm challenged to find those answers by faithful prayer, by participation, and by trying my best to live righteously. I love that we have communication with our Heavenly Father through a living prophet and many authorities. I love that we have temples on earth that allow us to do the Lord's work and be closer to the Savior. I have a testimony of this church, and it gets stronger with each trial and triumph I face in life. My life hasn't been made easier, but it's been made whole by everything I've experienced and felt since I was baptized. I hope others can find that completion as I have. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by working on improving my relationship with Heavenly Father. I use prayer to help me, attend church every Sunday, regularly attend the temple, teach in Sunday School, and try to carry out Christ's teachings the best ways I know how. I like getting to know those I serve, and even it's just a brief conversation, I try to uplift those around me.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Ashley Elizabeth
Yes, Mormons absolutely believe in the Bible. It is regarded as Holy Scripture, as is the Book of Mormon. Both sets of scripture reveal gospel truths.  I've had the opportunity to study and teach from the New Testament over the past few months and I can say without hesitation that the Bible is the word of God. It's been such a blessing to learn about the Savior and what he's done for me. Show more Show less
