Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a wife, mother of 2 boys, I love doing hair, decorating my home, crafts, reading and music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I have a wonderful husband who is my best friend and is currently in law school. l have 2 boys, a 14 month old busy kid, and his older brother who passed away 2 1/2 years ago at 2 days old. I miss him a ton, but my 14 month old is a huge light in my life!!!! I do hair and LOVE it! I also love anything that has to do with interior design and I love looking at blogs about it. I also love crafts, but don't always have time to do them, reading a good book, and all types of music. My family and I recently moved to Omaha from Arizona and we so far are loving it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the peace and joy it brings to my life. Throughout my life I have struggled with anxiety and depression, and knowing the true gospel of Jesus Christ has helpeed me through a lot of hard times. Being a Mormon doesn't take your problems away, because we all have trials, but it helps me know the purpose of them and helps me have peace with them. Losing our 1st son was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through, but knowing God's plan for families has brought me so much peace in my life. I know that anyone can have that same peace through the gospel of jesus Christ regardless of what is going on in their life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to follow God's commandments. While I am not perfect at it, I try really hard!!!! I try to be kind and friendly to others and I love making new friends.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Mormons do baptisms for the dead because we believe everyone who ever came to the earth should have the opportunity to accept or reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We know that it is impossible for everyone to have received that opportunity so we do geneology and find our ancestors who were not baptised and are baptised by proxy so that in the next life they have the opportunity to accept it or reject it if they choose.
