Hi I'm Ashley

I grew up in Utah. I am going to be an elementary school teaher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to college to become an elementary school teacher. It took me a while to decide on my major but I love it. I love to be outdoors, run, and read. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my friends and family. I am a big sister and enjoy spending time with my little sisters.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church. For a while I just believed because my parents did. When I was 14 I read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover for the first time. When I was done I prayed and asked if it was true. At first I was disappointed because I didn't feel like I got an answer. But as I thought about it I realized that everytime I read I felt the spirit. I guess thats how I know the gospel is true. Whenever I want to know something I have to do it. I have to try out the different principles of the gospel and little by little I gain a testimony of them. I know that the church is true and that Heavenly Father loves his children and has a plan for each of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example to everyone around me. I try to remember that everyone is a child of God. This helps me to feel love for them. Some of my greatest experiences in the church have come through visiting teaching. I go and visit some of the sisters in my ward and share a spiritual message with them. I try to serve those sisters and to get to know them. I am filled with love towards those I serve and have made great friendships through visiting teaching.
