Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a native Texan, a stay at home mom, a piano teacher, a Cub Scout volunteer and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and are going on 13 years of marriage with our three children. I'm a novice gardener at times. I use my sewing talents to create just about anything I can come up with. I love music in all forms. I play the piano, clarinet and organ. I have been teaching piano to students of all ages and backgrounds for three years. I volunteer with the Boys Scouts of America in several different capacities as a Den Leader, Pack Trainer and Committee Member. I plan to continue to serve with the BSA as long as I can!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church. My family grew up in a small town where we were the only members of this church. As a youth my siblings and I were constantly being questioned concerning beliefs by friends and teachers. The more I taught, the more I understood...the more I believed. These experiences helped me gain my sure testimony of the truthfulness of the church. From the on I knew that I could never waiver from it. Being a Mormon has always provided me with comfort, joy, friendship and hope. As a mother, I strive to show and teach my children the importance of being a positive example and friend to those around us by following the teachings given to us in the church and the scriptures. Being a Mormon makes it's easy to do what's right and to provide service willingly. And, it brings me joy knowing that my family will be together forever. This church is true and I have seen the countless blessings that come because I do believe.

How I live my faith

I serve as an organist in our ward. There isn't a better calling that allows you to feel the spirit of the church hymns like I get to. In the church, the BSA serves as the activity program for all boys starting at age 8. I am heavily involved at the ward level to help create a quality program for these young men. I have also taught the young children of the church. I think I have learned more about the church teaching them than in any other calling.
