Hi I'm Ashley

I grew up in Moses Lake, WA. I am a Photographer/Digital Designer and mother of three. I love to dance and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from College Sept. 2010 with a Business Management degree. My husband and I have been married almost 6 years and have 3 beautiful children; ages 5, 4, and 2. My husband is currently finishing his Pre-Req's and then applying to Physician Assistant schools.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but didn't truly comprehend the importance of it until I decided this was something I needed to either continue living or do something else with my life. I always knew there was a God, but needed to gain my own testimony of the gospel so at age 13 I prayed to Heavenly Father to please help me to know the church was true. For me this was a time in my life (middle school) where I knew I was going to be faced with a lot of choices and knew I needed to know where I stood on certain issues that would come about. After praying for the truth I knew what my choice would need to be in order to get back to my Father in Heaven someday. I know that choosing to continue living the gospel was the only way I would be able to receive eternal happiness. Now that I have my own family I continue to see the blessings of living the gospel and how it makes my family closer. I know we have a Prophet sent from God to teach and guide our church just like there were prophets in the Bible. Our Prophet is a great man who teaches just what we need to strive to do in order to be happy and live a great life. There is nothing better than being ready for anything that may come our way and the church leads us and guides us so we know how we can be prepared for just about anything. Joseph Smith was a true prophet who brought the Gospel back to Earth and I will be eternally grateful for making it possible for us to all know of the true church. I love the gospel and the foundations and morals it teaches us all as we grow.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as the activity days leader for my ward. I love the knowledge the young girls share about the gospel and their admiration to become righteous young women. Our children are the future and they will not be able to strive for their best unless we teach them of the Gospel and how they can work hard to choose the right and return to our Father in Heaven. Children are so important and they absorb so much so why not let them know of the wonderful church we have? I also visit teach 3 sisters in the ward and enjoy their company and families.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. I love to help others! In my job we help all kinds of people and we enjoy serving others. Show more Show less
