Hi I'm Ashley

I grew up in Arizona. I'm serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm attending college and participating in cross country and track and field. I love to compete and I love to improve my talents. In addition to running, I love basketball and volleyball. I love hanging out with friends and trying new things. I am excited to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I can't wait to share Christ's love and teachings with those who I meet.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith prayed and received an answer. He restored Christ's church on the earth in its entirety and brought forth The Book of Mormon. I have read The Book of Mormon and know that it is true. It's teachings have solidified my testimony of the Savior. I have been blessed throughout my life to have the Gospel. When I am living the standards of the church I am blessed with happiness and strength to handle life's challenges. I know who I am, where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. I know that my family can be together forever because of the blessings of the temple and sacrifices of our Savior. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves me and I love Him. I am so grateful for His example and love. I know that He is always there for me, extending His hand to me. I know that He can empathize and understand me perfectly. I know that I can pray to my Heavenly Father and that He listens to my prayers and answers them. With Christ, all things are possible. I am thrilled that I can serve a mission and help others to know these things for themselves.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith throughout every day. I love the feeling I get when I know that I am living the principles that I have been taught. I enjoy family home evening, a night set aside to spend with my family. We teach one another lessons, play games, and grow closer together. I also love to hang out with my teammates. We are all very different, but, even with our different beliefs and personalities, we are still the best of friends.
