Hi I'm Ashley Elizabeth Proctor

I've lived in 6 different states. I love to laugh. I enjoy meeting new people. I'm a blogger. I'm a newlywed. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love meeting new people and learning new things. I have moved around a lot and have made lasting friendships along the way. I enjoy traveling which is why I received my undergraduate degree in history. I am planning on getting my master's degree in education because I am passionate about inspiring others to appreciate their culture and their freedoms that are often taken for granted. I am a newlywed and am loving it! I am currently the "bread winner" of our family. I work the typical Monday through Friday from 8 to 5 while my husband is in dental school. I love to cook so after a long day of work I'll still come home and cook dinner for us. That is the time we have to wind down after a stressful day and enjoy one of our common interests, eating yummy food!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can see my Heavenly Father's hand in my life. I know that my life would not be as wonderful as it is today without the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I am grateful for the comfort and peace this gospel brings me. I am glad that I am able to rely on my Heavenly Father when I have difficult decisions to make and I don't know how I would have been able to get through life without that help that I know he gives me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being active in helping the church. I help out by teaching sunday school to the cute 5 year olds :) I not only volunteer my time to the church, but I also contribute 10% of my income in supporting the growth of the church. The church is able to use my contribution, as well as the other member's contributions to help with not only the building up and growth of the church, but also to give humanitarian aid to those people suffering from the many natural disasters that have been occurring over the past several years.
