Hi I'm Asli

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey. I am a mother of 3 amazing children. I am a full time student, mom, and wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey and moved permanently to Las Vegas, NV when I was12 years old. I grew up believing there was a God, but not knowing much more than that. It wasn't until I had my daughter that I realized there was something missing from my life. With my husband’s guidance, I researched the church and my son and I decided to get baptized shortly thereafter. We have seen an amazing change in our family since. Through the love and grace of Christ, we have been able to overcome obstacles and tough times that otherwise may have torn our family apart. I am happier now than I've ever been and I am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me true happiness. By living the commandments taught by Jesus, I have come to know peace and have joy in my heart. It has taught me to be happy with who I am and what I have...it has taught me to love others and serve...it has taught me that no matter what I've done, and where I've been, I can rely on the Lord to forgive me and help me do better...it has taught me that happiness comes from serving others, including my family and those around me...it has taught me what is most important in life...it has taught me that faith precedes happiness...it has taught me that families can be together forever...it has taught me what I can do to be a better mother, wife, sister, and daughter. If I live my life in a way where I'm always striving to do and be better, and if I petition the Lord to help me, I can make it through any challenge in this life.

How I live my faith

It wasn't until just a few years ago that I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have learned so much on what I can do to be happy in this life. I strive to always follow the commandments given by Jesus Christ. I pray often to my Heavenly Father for help and guidance. I study my scriptures and attend my church meetings. I visit mormon.org and lds.org to read, watch, and listen to amazing and uplifting stories. Our family has a weekly Family Home Evening where we gather together, share a spiritual message, and have a fun activity. I try to be a good example to those around me and try to be more like Jesus in all that I do.
