Hi I'm Ashley

I am currently a missionary in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission! I pretend life is a musical. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and a Sophomore in college. I love to sing and to pretend life is a musical. I am very enthusiastic and love to spend my time surrounded with people! Currently, I am serving a mission in New England! Guys, the church is true. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith, but I had to develop a testimony of my own. Like many new teenagers, my Junior High experience was less than ideal. I struggled with making friends and being bullied. It was then that I began reading the Book of Mormon daily, and praying to my Heavenly Father daily. This literally changed my life. My situation was still the same, God didn't take away my troubles. But because of those trials, I had reached the depths of humility so God could shape me. Those trials, and the trials I have gone through since, are the greatest blessings of my life. Even in the absolute darkest moments of life, moments that it seems to take too much energy to even breathe, our loving Heavenly Father knows how to grant me strength. To me, the Gospel is peace. It is happiness. It is strength. It is the only stable thing I can rely to hold on to when I feel like collapsing. The Gospel is pure love and joy, and it is only through Christ that this can be achieved. I know this to be true with all of my heart.

How I live my faith

I love my Savior! He has sacrificed His Eternal existence for me, so it is the least I can do to show my faith and love for Him in simple, every day decisions. He is my best friend! I draw closer to Him and my Father in Heaven by praying all day every day. Reading the scriptures. Serving others and trying to be as selfless as I can. True happiness, right there, folks.
