Hi I'm Ashree

I am currently serving in the Texas Houston South Mission. I have a wonderful family. I love motorcycles. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a red headed college student from Utah. I enjoy being with my family and friends. I am the oldest of four children. I have a two younger brothers and little mini me sister. Three of us have red hair so things get a little wild in the house. My family means everything to me, and we spend a lot of time camping, fishing, vacationing, watching/playing football, and quoting movies. I love just about anything that keeps me moving, and having random dance parties with my friends. I love motorcycles and leather jackets. Nikes are my best friends. I find joy in listening to music and bands that are not common in the main stream. Two words, social butterfly. Right now I am serving a full time mission in the Texas Houston South Mission. I believe I was born to be a Texan.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. Even though I grew up in an active family, I always had a mind of my own. My parents never pushed me into what I should believe, and I am thankful for that. When I was 17 my uncle passed away in a tragic plane crash. At that moment, I realized there has to be something more to our life. Why do we go through hard things? Where do we go after this life? Even though I learned Gods plan for us and went to church, it never stuck in my heart until this experience. There have many other experiences in my life where I know God was shaping and stregnthening my testimony in him and in the gospel. I know Heavenly Father is always there to help us with whatever we need. He gives us experiences to grow closer to him and to be a better person. After certain experiences in my life, the more I knew I needed to share my knowledge of the gospel with the world. I know that families are together forever and that God loves us. The Book of Mormon has strengthend my knowledge of the Savior and I know He is always there for us. I choose to go to church on Sundays because of the love I have for the Lord, and I know that is where I can learn how to apply the gospel in my life. I love being Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am who I am. I love Heavenly Father and the Savior Jesus Christ and that is why I chose to serve a full time mission. Living your faith is not just a Sunday thing. It is everyday. Everyday I strive to find people who the Lord wants me to talk to and share the gospel. Before my mission, I would go to church to learn how to apply my faith and the gospel into my life. Living your faith becomes who you are.
