Hi I'm Ashley Gillam

I love my Savior Jesus Christ, I study Industrial Design at Brigham Young University, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children. I grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio and then moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania when I was 14. Five years later with a year of college under my belt, I will be leaving in August 2014 to serve as a missionary in Anaheim, California, and I am so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I love Jesus Christ because he is my Savior. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has brought me so close to my Savior and taught me how to be more like him. I have experienced the joy that comes from living like Christ as well as the misery that comes from sin. I have had my prayers answered over and over again. Prayer has confirmed the truth of this Gospel, I know that it is true and that if I live by the commandments I will be happy.

How I live my faith

At my high school I was one of only a few other Mormons at a very large school. I was able to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ lighten the burdens of those around me, and I witnessed the light of Christ change lives, including my own. When I choose to keep God's commandments I find true happiness, and I have sought to share that happiness with others.
