Hi I'm Ashlyn

I'm a proud wife, mom, and student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of two children. One of my sons has Autism Spectrum Disorder. I believe that all children are special spirits, especially mine ;) I am currently and online student in a bachelor degree program. After I finish school I will be an editor.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that the only way to get to heaven is through Jesus Christ. I am so grateful that I can belong to the one church on earth that has the proper priesthood authority from Jesus Christ to preform sacred ordinances and blessings that are essential to my salvation. I know that Jesus Christ leads this church through the scriptures, and modern day revelation through our living prophet Thomas S. Monson. I have seen the hand of God in my life first hand. I will not go into detail, but without our Heavenly Father's protection I would definitely have been seriously injured, or possibly killed a long time ago. I know that if I live close to Jesus Christ and his Gospel my family and I will be together again for all eternity.

How I live my faith

I am the Relief Society Chorister for my ward. For those who don't know what that is, my job is to pick the opening and closing hymns, and then conduct the music for our Relief Society meeting each Sunday. Relief Society is the organization of the women in the church. You become a member of Relief society when you become eighteen years old, and we meet each Sunday after Sunday School. For more information about Relief Society, please visit LDS.org and browse the information available there. To me, living my faith is much more than just my calling. It is "being a witness of Christ, at all times, and in all places" It is helping my neighbors, friends, and family. Or, when I'm talking with someone, and the discussion turns to religion, I say proudly "I'm a Mormon". I defend my beliefs, and any position the church might take on a subject, such as the importance of the family. In our church, we believe that the family is central to God's plan for our eternal life. I cherish my family, and I hope to continue building my family until I am no longer able to do so. We believe in taking time aside each week just for our families. We call this time "Family Home Evening", and in my family, we usually use this time to watch a movie together. Veggie tales is one of our family favorites, my son really likes the Jonah movie.  

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Ashlyn
Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and the only way to get to heaven is through him. Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of our religion. We believe that while he was on the earth he set up his church. After he and his Disciples died, the church was lost on the earth. Years later, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ spoke to Joseph Smith, and they gave him the authority and instruction to restore Christ's church on the earth. We believe that Jesus Christ was, and still is the head of this church. Today he speaks through his prophet, Thomas S. Monson. Show more Show less
