Hi I'm Ashley

I am so happy, because I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love my amazing family. I enjoy being married, running, drawing, painting and singing. I have been attending college for 2 and a half years studying Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family already active in the Lord's gospel. During Junior High school, I wanted to know for myself that my beliefs were real and true. I sat in my room and prayed. I prayed to know Heavenly Father was there listening to me. I opened my scriptures to where I had left off the day before in the Doctrine and Covenants 53:1 and read "Behold, I say unto you, my servant... that I have heard your prayers; and you have called upon me that it should be made known unto you, of the Lord your God..." I could not doubt Heavenly Father knew me, nor can I doubt to this day. I know He hears and answers our sincere prayers. He knows and loves all His children. Living His gospel makes me happier than anything else on this Earth. I know my Savior lives. His Atonement is real. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ visited Joseph Smith, and restored the gospel through him. He is a true prophet of God, and we have a living prophet today. Thomas S. Monson and the apostles are messengers and servants of God. What they say is true and is meant to guide us. The Book of Mormon is true. I know we will receive divine inspiration by reading this book daily. I know the companionship of the Holy Ghost should be a major priority in our lives. Having that sacred companionship will provide protection, guidance, comfort, and strength beyond our comprehension. I know if we live our lives by putting God's will first, we will experience the most joy in this life and in the next. I am grateful for my testimony of these things, because it helps my life have purpose and meaning. I am excited and honored to share this testimony in the hope that I might be made an instrument in the hands of God in bringing others to Christ.

How I live my faith

I just got sealed to my husband for time and all eternity in the Bountiful Utah temple. I am so grateful for him for helping me apply what I learn by striving to be a good representative of Jesus Christ wherever I go. I know that having a home with a foundation built upon the teachings of Jesus Christ will lead us to the greatest happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Ashley
Literally everything around us testifies us of our loving Father in Heaven. Heavenly Father loves us so much. He created Earth for us and gave us bodies to house our spirits. He has a plan for all of us to live here, learn, and prove our faith in Him to return to Him someday. He sent His only begotten Son to sacrifice all He had to allow us to repent and be saved in His kingdom forever. He gives us tools to learn and become like Him: scriptures, prayer, the Holy Ghost, living prophets, Temples, the Atonement, eternal families, uplifting music, etc. Our entire existence is a blessing from God.
