Hi I'm Ashlynn Clegg

A lover of all things sports and outdoors, a college student, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at the beautiful BYU campus, surrounded by the Wasatch Mountain Range where my favorite summer activities are spent. I can't help but feel God's love for me when I am in the mountains. I currently work as a part time wedding planner and nanny. I am a lover of all things sports, chopsticks, and doodling. But my favorite time is family time.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints my entire life. Some would say that I haven't known any different so that's why I am still a Mormon. I can't pin point a singular experience that was life altering and confirmed that the church is true, it has more been a series of small but powerful moments. But I can truly say that I have tested the truthfulness of the Church for myself. I have knelt in sincere prayer and asked if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's church restored once again on the earth. Through prayer and reading the scriptures, the spirit has touched my heart and confirmed to me truth. I can declare boldly that God lives, that He loves all of His children and knows each of us individually. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet that restored the church and that we have a living prophet today that still receives revelation for our church, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I am a Mormon because this church brings me the greatest joy, peace, and hope in my life. The message is that of happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living the gospel! Each day I do my best to be true to what I know, and a lot of that consists of regularly attending church, prayer, scripture study, and serving others, especially through my calling as a visiting teacher.
