Hi I'm Ashley Nelson

Called to serve in El Savador. A college student who loves people. I'm a Mormon. I know it, I love it, I live it.

About Me

I have been a member all my life, but that has not stopped me from enjoying life. In my free time I enjoy running and enjoying people that I interact with. My family is the most imporant thing to me. My brother says that sometimes we are better then cable. Whatever the case may be, I enjoy being with my family and having fun. I am a person that has a ton of personality. I will be serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ in September and am so excited for this opportunity to share what I believe about the gospel to help others learn more about Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon becasue it is what has given me my purpose in life. In some cases, there I times I don't believe I would be alive without it, because then I would not have the preisthood in my house. I may only be a teenager but I know that this gospel is true becasue it tells me who I am and where I came from. Those two questions are ones that in this day and age are always being asked. This gospel answers those and so many more. I am the most happiest when I am closets to the Lord and the gospel is the only way that this is achieved. I am thankful that this gospel provides a way that families can be together forever. Many of the miracles that I have recieved in my life have come because of this gospel. I know that this gospel is true and that there are three distinct members of the God head. That Heavenly Father gave us the greatest gift which is eternal life and this was accomplished through Jesus Christ. He gave his his life so that we could live and that was the greatest sacrifice of all.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. Other teeangers and teachers notice that I am different. This gives me an opportunity to talk about my faith. I don't dress or talk like other teenagers and adults and even other students respect this. Most importantly I am living my faith by dedicating 18 months of my life to this gospel so others will know the happiness that I have come to find through the gospel.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Ashley Nelson
When we left heaven, our Father in Heaven still wanted us to talk him and get to know him. Therefore, he provided prayer as a means of communication, and a way to show us he loves us. In addition he gaves us the commandements just like parents gives us rules so that we could show him our obdience. In return, we draw closer to him becasue we show him that we respect him enough to live by what he has told us. The scriptures are another way by which we are told that we can get to know our Father in Heaven better and learn what he has to say to us as his children. Show more Show less
