Hi I'm Ash

I'm 19 years old. I live in Vegas. I'm battling addictions. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm someone who is full of PASSION and love. Above all else, the relationships I have with family and friends is what is most important to me. I hate senseless, mindless things, such as tv, facebook, or anything else that serves as a distractor from really living. I have many many weaknesses. I have an addictive personality that I struggle with every day. Through the Addiction Recovery Program, I have come to know myself, why I do what I do, why I have addictions, and how I can overcome those things. I also battle depression every day of my life. Every day is a struggle. Sometimes it takes every ounce of willpower in my being to just get out of bed in the morning. But I will never give up, and through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I will be healed. I love KNOWLEDGE and being in nature. I love love, music, running, food, laughing, movies, books, writing, snowboarding, playing Zelda, and much more. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because EVERY TINY ASPECT OF THIS GOSPEL AND CHURCH ARE TRUE and I know that for myself. 2 years ago, I was not an active member of the church. I was lost in the dark hopelessness of serious sin. By some miracle, I ended up in my bishop's office. I confessed everything to him, and started the repentance process. I fully repented and gave up MY WHOLE LIFE for this Gospel. And let me tell you, it was worth it. It was so hard, but I would NEVER take back that decision. Since then, I have completely changed. I am not even the same person. Without the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I would still be lost in darkness and misery and ignorance. I am also able to battle my addictions and any other problems that I have with the help of Christ. I could never do it alone. I know that, because I have tried and it gets me nowhere. This Gospel is what gives me hope, clarity, and most of all JOY. Please, take my advice, and give it a try. What have you got to lose?

How I live my faith

I'm not perfect but I put a lot of time into studying the Book of Mormon and other church materials every day. I pray 10x or more every day. Going to church and fulfilling my calling as a ward missionary are also #1 priorities to me. I truly rely on the Lord to direct my life. Sometimes it is very hard, but I try to keep an attitude of "Thy will be done" instead of "my will be done". I'm preparing to enter the temple right now and receive my endowment. I am also preparing to serve a mission. I've been called to serve in the Chile Santiago East mission, I'll be speaking Spanish and I leave on July 3rd of 2013. I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THE PEOPLE OF CHILE!
