Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 2nd grade teacher. I love working with children and have a passion for literacy. In my spare time I enjoy biking, crafts, and baking. My latest obsession is cupcaking!

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a mormon. One of them is because I truly believe in the church's teachings of righteous living. I know that my happiness comes from living the standards I've been taught. The church teaches principles of honesty, health, fidelity, and service. When I live these principles my life seems full and abundant.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly and I also enjoy participating in the additional meetings and activities the church offers. In our ward my husband and I are assigned to the "picture board". We meet and welcome new members, get a picture of them so that the bishop and ward can get to know their names and faces.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

The temple is a sacred place where we are given the opportunity to make promises with the Lord. In order to attend the temple members must a hold a current temple recommend. To receive this recommend members meet with their assigned leaders (Bishop and Stake President) and are interviewed about their adherence to church teachings and their testimony, or belief, in the church.This is done because the covenants and promises we make in the temple are important and should not be entered into lightly.
