Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home-mom to 3 little ones. I'm a New England native, but since going to college have decided to cross over to the West Coast! Putting my college degree to use, I tutor chemistry in my spare time. I love reading, watching a good movie, and have recently started taking piano lessons!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in to the Mormon faith. I continue in the faith though because I have found that my life is complete with it. I have the answers to "why am I here?" "what is the purpose of life?" "why do bad things happen to good people?" My life has meaning because of the emphasis on service. There have been many times I have prayed to God and felt in my heart his love for me and received an answer to the questions and concerns I was praying about! As a bonus, I get to interact with a wonderful, diverse group of people every Sunday (and during the week sometimes). They help me when I struggle and help remind me that I am important to God.

How I live my faith

I work with the young children in our church. I, along with 3 other women, oversee Singing Time, Lesson Time, and coordinate teachers to teach individual classes. I absolutely love singing with the children about "trying to be like Jesus" and hearing their stories of how God answers their prayers and how they feel good inside when they keep the commandments. I seem to constantly be studying how I can establish a loving home that also has a feeling of acceptance and peace. It takes effort to create fun family traditions and build family relationships so that my children can be confident productive members of society and contribute to bettering our country, as opposed to being a drain on resources; I see that as my highest priority. I want others to feel the love of Jesus through me and my family - to know that they are a child of God.
