Hi I'm Ashley

I am a stay-at-home mother of four. I love to make things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mother to four children. I love to bake goodies and make crafts in my no-so-much free time. I have a degree in Child Development which I am still trying to figure out what I am going to do with it (like raising children is not using my degree!!).

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church in a part member family, my father is a member my mother is not. Until I was about 12 years old, my father was inactive and my sister and I would go to church with our grandparents. During my high school years, I rebelled against my parents and my faith, eventually ending up pregnant at seventeen. After my daughter was born and her father left me, I realized that my happiest times were when I was a faithful member of the church. I also wanted my daughter to have the experiences I had as a youth in the church. The repentance process was difficult, mostly because it is easier to continue down the path of sin than to do what's right. Satan makes is so easy to continue making sinful choices, so easy that you become too prideful to humble yourself and return to righteousness. But it is possible. My faith sustains me, keeps me going.

How I live my faith

I strive to keep my home a peaceful environment where the sprit can reside. I have four children and I teach them about Christ. We have pictures of Christ on our walls. Once a week we hold Family Home Evenings where we learn about the gospel. We attend church every week. We also strive to help those who are in need of help whenever we can.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the Mormon Church is like having a gigantic extended family. Whenever you need something, wether temporally or spiritually, there is always someone available to help you and show love to you. You are never alone in your process in understanding and living gospel principles. Show more Show less
