Hi I'm Ashley

I'm 23 years old, I work in a medical billing office, I'm an avid reader, I love spending time with my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

If you ask other people what my most memorable feature is they would probably say it's my smile. I am a happy energetic person. I love life, and find great joy in living every day to the fullest. I have many things that I enjoy doing, but my favorite thing in the world is spending time with my family. I also enjoy reading, and going to the movies with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active Mormon family, but that is not why I'm a Mormon. I have stayed a member of the church because I know that it is the true church. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I know that the principles in this book come from Heavenly Father. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet, and that, like prophets of the Bible, Heavenly Father gives President Monson direction for us during our time in the world. I love the church. People ask me how I live such strict restrictions that the church places on me, but I don't see them as restrictions. I see them as guidelines that a loving Heavenly Father has given to me so that I can be happy and live with him again someday. I know that Jesus Christ lives. He is my Savior, my Redeemer, and my closest Friend. I find strength in knowing that at any given time, no matter where I am, or what I'm doing, I can communicate with my Heavenly Father through prayer. I know that he hears my prayers, and that he wants to bless me in my life. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. I always have a ready smile for everyone I pass on the street, and I am always looking for ways I can give service to those around me. I love helping other people, especially helping them know their own self worth. I know that Heavenly Father loves everyone, and I try to follow his example by being kind to everyone I meet. I am a ward missionary as my church calling. I assist the full time missionaries in helping the people in my local church area seek missionary experiences.
