Hi I'm Ashlee

I live in Utah. I love my family and the outdoors. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. Even though all of the decisions I need to make are some times daunting, I'm excited for all the unknown possibilities ahead for me. I love to go hiking to see the beauty of nature. I also enjoy things like camping, snow shoeing, kayaking, and yoga. I like to think of myself as creative. I've thought about studying art, but now I am thinking about going into dietetics/food and nutrition. Right now I am working at a nursery with lots of pretty, green plants. I'm kind of shy sometimes, but I love to learn and grow and help others do the same. I adore my family and love to spend time with them. We have good times together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that I have a Heavenly Father as my God who loves me and all of his children. I know that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ who has made it possible for me and everyone to return to Him, and I know that this is His church that He leads and guides through prophets that live on earth today. And I have felt the spirit of God in my life and it has made a lasting change to my heart, so now I want to fallow Christ in everything I do. That is why I am a member of His church. I can learn and grow so much and find great peace and joy through Christ's restored gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do the little things everyday, like talking with God through prayer or reading my scriptures, because I know these are important things to do. I try to develop Christlike attributes like love, patience, and faith. For a year and a half, I served on a mission to share the gospel with others and serve them in any way I could. It was and amazing experience. And now I have various responsibilities at church to serve the congregation where I attend. Some of the things I do is sing help out with activities, sing in the choir, or help people learn more about the gospel and get them involved. I have a lot of fun as I meet new people and serve them or serve with them. I try to help everyone feel welcome and feel of Heavenly Father's love for them.
