Hi I'm Afton Lee

I love to live, laugh, and love. I find joy in the little things. I live ever moment to its fullest. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love to learn. Some would call me a jack of many trades. My heart is in the outdoors. I love to kayak, swim, and bike. I love early morning runs. I love animals. They have a soft spot in my heart. I love to make people laugh. My family means the world to me. I love their constant love, support, and example. They have helped me become who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I have not always believed the teachings of the church. I moved away from home to try to figure things out on my own. Through lots of study and prayers, I decided that a mission was best for me to learn and grow and come closer to my Savior. I love my Savior and all that he has done for me. I know that because of the Atonement I can be forgiven of all my sins. I know that no sin is to big to be forgiven of. I know that we have the restored gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I know that the priesthood is back on the earth. I know that if we live righteously, we can return to live with my Father in Heaven and be with our families forever. I know the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that God loves me and loves each and every one of us. I know that the gospel can bring happiness into anyone's life if they will listen and act on the words of the Lord.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping God's commandments. At first I felt like these commandments were rules that bind us from making our own choices and keep us from having joy in this life. From trial and errors, I have learned that the commandments are here to keep us safe. Instead of looking at commandments as a restraint, I turn to God wanting to keep the commandments he has given me. I know that when we keep the commandments He will bless us and will always be quick to help us in times of need.
