Hi I'm Ashley!

I'm from California. I'm a college student. I am about to serve a mission in Peru. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am 19 years old, I love my family, my friends, playing the piano, and spending time outside as much as possible. I don't believe in coincidences and I think that all of us are where we are for a reason. I was adopted when I was just two weeks old and I am so fortunate to have been able to be raised in this wonderful gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is what brings me the most happiness in my life. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. There has never been one defining moment in my life that has led me to know that this gospel is true, it has actually been a series of small experiences, feelings that I get from living the gospel that can’t come from anywhere else. Being a member of this church isn't always convenient, it isn't always easy, and I know that I don’t know all the reasons of why sad things happen to us in this life, but as I have come to know the gospel I have found that through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for me everything can be made right. If you don’t know if this gospel is true or you are struggling with your faith, I encourage you to pray to our Heavenly Father to find the truth because I know He is always listening.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each week and trying to practice what I believe throughout the whole week. I also live my faith by just simply being happy. I am getting ready to serve a mission in Peru and I couldn't be more excited to learn Spanish and teach the wonderful people there about the love that Jesus Christ has for them.
