Hi I'm Ashley

I grew up in West Seneca, NY. I just graduated from college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 Hi, I'm Ashley. I married my wonderful husband almost 1 year ago. We just graduated from college. I majored in Communication Disorders. Now that I'm done with school there are lots of things I want to learn on my own. Right now I'm working on learning Microsoft Excel. Soon, I want to start practicing piano again. I took piano lessons when I was younger but I haven't played in a while. Also, I want to take a CPR/First Aid class and start exercising more regularly. I think learning new things is really fun!  

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. So many people in the world want to know how to be happy. Some people try to find happiness in wealth or popularity or other things. But, I know that true, lasting, joy comes from following God's commandments and serving others. Also, the gospel gives me so many answers. I know why I am here on Earth and what my purpose is. I know what is going to happen to me and my family after we die. I know what things will help me have a strong marriage and good family relationships. 

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach the young children in our local church. The little kids are so cute! It's really fun when they seem to be understanding the things we are teaching them. Also, every month another woman and I visit two other women in our church. We share a lesson and visit with them. This is so great because it helps us to be friends and find out what is going on in each others' lives. We can really help each other out when needed. Also, on a more personal level, I read and study the Book of Mormon every day. Additionally, I pray by myself and with my husband daily. I try my best to keep all the commandments. 

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

 Yes! Can you imagine living in heaven without your family? That would be so sad, it wouldn't be heaven at all. One of the most comforting things that we know is that families can live together in heaven. By following God's plan we can make it to Heaven and live with our families forever.  Show more Show less
