Hi I'm Asha Stapley

I have experienced joy in this life. As i want to share this joy, im a soon-to-be missionary. Im a Mormon.

About Me

Im 19 years old and im going on a mission! First of all, I grew up moving back and forth from Arizona and Utah. Most of my family lives in Arizona, although my immediate family keeps being drawn back to Utah. I was a very shy kid growing up but through all my moves, I grew out of my comfort zone and my family has grown closer. I love baking, scrapbooking, and doing service. And most importantly, I know this Gospel is true. I would be nothing without it!

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon because i know this is the only way i can live with my Father and my wonderful brother, Jesus Christ, again. I was blessed to grow up in the Gospel and i was able to appreciate the blessings of it at an age younger than most. As a sophomore in high school, I was able to receive the answer that the Book of Mormon was true. I was able to continue throughout high school with the Holy Ghost by my side and as i watched my older sister prepare to serve a mission, i noticed a happiness i had never seen, rise inside her. It she claimed it was due to her meticulous studying of the Gospel. I tried to do the same and the results are astounding! I love this Gospel with all my heart! I know Christ loves us! I am grateful everyday for the trials in my life that have in turn, made me draw closer to my Father in Heaven. I am ready to shout from the rooftops how true this Gospel is! I encourage you if you dont know, find out for yourself! Enjoy this happiness that is just WAITING for you. Its about time you embraced it!

How I live my faith

I was the head of my family home evening committee for a group of young single adults. I planned almost every activity that we have on Monday nights. I loved planning these activities and watching people come and have fun with all the friends in our area. And now i am currently serving as a full-time mission in England. It has been extremely fun and i look forward to continuing growing in the gospel so as to be a better missionary.

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

I love taking a moment to look around at the beauty all around me. The wonder and excitement that follows the gorgeous world that has been given to us. Amidst the "worldly things" of this life that discounts the harmony we should be feeling in life, there is always the beauty that surrounds us to bring us back to our Loving Father in Heaven. He cares for us! He allows the sun to light our way. As well, in the nighttime, the moon and the stars to shine at us with His love. He allows the seasons to bring us joy and the opportunity to enjoy the different activities that come with being outside. He allows the birds and fishes and other animals to bring us wonder about the world out there. Next time you go outside, take a moment to contemplate the splendid world that God has blessed us to enjoy. Show more Show less
