Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a mom, a photographer, an international importer, a small business owner, an aerobics instructor, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a super busy stay at home mom...sort of! My husband and I have always wanted a large family, but with some difficult fertility issues we are very lucky to have one handsome 5 year old! Since I love to be busy and there are not currently a house full of children, I have gotten involved in many other things. I own my own photography studio, I a part owner in an import business, I teach aerobics at the local gym, I sit on the parent advisory board at my sons school and volunteer there twice a month, and I love to spend time with good friends or a good book!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I love having a plan and I love The Savior Jesus Christ. I like to do things that are important and make sense. Ever since I was baptized, being a mormon has just made sense to me. I love that the path for me back to our Heavenly Father is clear, and that all of the steps have a purpose. I love being surrounded by people with similar goals who are always building me up and never putting me down. When I am serving our Savior by serving others, especially my son and husband, that is when I feel the absolute happiest and the most peace about my life and my purpose here. I know with assurity that my Heavenly Father and my Savior know and love me, because I feel it often. I also know that one of my purposes here on earth is to help others feel that same love.

How I live my faith

I mostly live my faith by being a good, happy person. I like to get involved in school, community, and neighborhood activities and I hope that everyone knows that I am a person who will happily lend a helping hand! At church I help lead the women's group. We get together every week on Sunday to learn and serve together, and also try to organize midweek activities for women to socialize and learn new skills or talents. Another thing I do is go visiting once a month with another woman. We visit a few other women in their homes. We bring a Gospel message, and also bring friendship and support. We make sure that each woman we visit is doing well and we do anything we can to help. When there is a woman in the congregation who is ill, having a baby, has a sick family member, or any other situation where she might need a helping hand, we organize any sort of help we can give. For instance we will organize meals, arrange for child care, drive to and from doctor's appointments etc.
