Hi I'm Ashlea Parsons

Sometimes I wish I was cool like you, but I'm glad I'm me.

About Me

I love music, art, history, reading, movies and city adventures. One day, I want to see the world with someone special I can share it with. I have travelled to New Zealand, Samoa, Singapore, England, Spain, France, The United States of America and Canada. I have a mum and a dad and I am the oldest of 3 girls. How people treat me is a big deal, and so in return, I often try to make sure I'm being nice to others. I make the music, rather than dance to it. Music is a big part of me. You can express and connect through it. I work part time while studying Art History at university and taking opera lessons. I served a full time mission in the Australia Perth Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints but I made the decision early in my life to pray and ask God if what I had been taught was true. Everything I was learning and doing through the Church gives me a good feeling and never gave me reason to doubt it. Daily I am faced with struggles and challenges in life but I know the answers are always found in the Scriptures and ultimately in Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. Through being an example in what I do, say and how I behave I am able to not only be a better person but have the opportunity to share with others why I'm a happier person. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to experience it and know it is true. From a simple prayer, to acts of service, God's love is all around.
