Hi I'm Ashlee

I am a published poet, and am a current high school student. I'm proud to be a Mormon! :)

About Me

I enjoy anything to do with music; dancing, singing, playing an instrument, or just listening to it. I'm the captain of the color guard team for marching band at my high school. I enjoy acting, and have been in plays since 5th grade. I was on the JV cheer squad for a year, and know what it is like to deal with a lot of drama. I enjoy reading any type of book I can get my hands on, and am quite a book worm!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I chose to be. Not because I was forced, or born into the church, but because I want to. It makes me happy and helps me to better see the bright side of everything. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church upon the Earth today. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and listens to and answers my prayers. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is truly another testament of Jesus Christ, and that it was not just made up. No evil man could write it if he tried, and no good man would write it if it weren't true! I know that families can be together forever through sacred temple ordinances, and that if I were to ever lose a family member I would see them and be with them again in Heaven. I know the importance of doing your family history, and doing temple work for them that they may come to know the truth as I do.

How I live my faith

I like to participate in our youth group, because we are always learning new things and new ways to help us act/live with faith. I enjoy serving others when I can find the spare time, and enjoy babysitting for the members of my ward when they want to go to the Temple. I try to read my scriptures and say my personal prayers daily, but I'm not perfect.

What is faith?

Faith is believing in something, even though you cannot see it. Compare faith to a seed, if you don't nourish it and care for it, the seed will not grow. Just like if we do not continually nourish our faith (scripture study, prayer, going to church, etc), it will also dwindle. We can compare Christ to Santa. Even though we never saw him, we believed Santa was real. Just like we have never seen Christ, but we believe that he is also real. Show more Show less
