Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a mother of 3 girls. I have a Master's degree in Psychology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mom to my three beautiful daughters. Before they were born, I worked as an HR Manager and loved my job and the excitement of corporate life. Now I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home with my girls. I love taking pictures of them and think Photoshop is one of the neatest inventions ever. I love to cook and do fun things with my family. We like to travel and find good places to eat. We love being together and making memories with each other. I am so glad that we are an eternal family. Nothing else would be long enough.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in Utah. My mom is a Mormon but my dad is not. He was always supportive of us and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to attend primary and the young women's program. Because of that, I knew at an early age that I wanted the gospel to be a part of my home and that I wanted to be sealed in the temple to the man of my dreams someday. My husband and I met while I was in graduate school. We were sealed in the temple, even though neither of my parents were able to attend. It was one of the hardest and best decisions I have ever made. I know that through the love of our Savior and through his atoning sacrifice, we can be better and do His work here on the earth. I am grateful for the plan of Salvation and the knowledge I have that we can be with our families forever. I love mine so much and I am so glad I can teach my children about our Heavenly Father's plan for us because that is what will help them find true happiness in life.

How I live my faith

My family and I attend church every week. We attend any weekly activities or events sponsored by the church as well. We are very busy with activities outside of the church, so sometimes this is difficult, but by making all things gospel related our top priority, everything else falls in to place. We try to help those in need and love that we get to help teaching the children, youth and adults at church. I am grateful that each day, I can look at what I did well and where I need improvement and that I can strive to be better everyday. I try to focus on the love that my Savior Jesus Christ has for me and my family. He is always there to help us, we just need to do our part and be the best we can be and He will make up the difference.
