Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a wife, a homemaker, and a mother to be. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was raised by two wonderful parents who taught me the gospel. I have 4 amazing brothers. It was not easy being the only girl and I often times wished for a sister. Now, I wouldn't have it any other way. They taught me to be tough and prepared me for marriage. I am married to my best friend. He makes me laugh daily and I love him for that. I recently graduated from BYU in Family and Consumer Science Education (home economics). I enjoy anything to do with homemaking: cooking, sewing, cleaning, decorating, and organizing. I love to exercise, whether it be tennis, running, or yoga. I love life and I am excited to become a mother at the end of the year!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I had amazing parents, family members, church leaders, and family friends who taught me about the gospel. They were great examples to me. I saw how the gospel brought happiness into their lives. As a teenager, I attended firesides, EFY, girls camp, and seminary. All of these things allowed me to feel the spirit and helped me to understand the gospel better. In high school, I began reading the Book of Mormon and read through the entire book. At the end I took Moroni's challenge to ask my Father in Heaven if what I read was true. I prayed and received a calm assurance of its truthfulness. My experience was nothing big but it changed my life. In my heart, I felt the spirit and I knew it was true. Since that time, I have reread the Book of Mormon countless time and every time I do, I feel peace. I know it is true and I know it brings happiness into my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be better than I was the day before. I try and smile and say hi to people as I walk by them on the street or in the grocery store. In my ward, I have served in different callings that allow me to serve the sisters. I feel one of the greatest things about serving is the love I feel for those I serve. As I meet with the sisters at church, at their home, or out in the community, my love for them grows. I have, also, met wonderful friends through serving.
