Hi I'm Ashley Carlson

Most importantly, I AM MORMON!!! I am a cosmetologist, make up artist and photographer. :) i love being outdoors too!

About Me

I am Ashley, I am 22 years old. I love doing hair and make up. Its a passion of mine. I love being around people, talking to people and most of all... Listening to people. I also love photography. Anything creative really. I also love the outdoors, camping hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, motocycles. LOVE IT ALL. Most importantly, i am serving a full time mission right until August 2014 in the New York Rochester mission and I love every moment of it. There is no greater joy than that of which I have found through the restored gospel. Except sharing it with others. There is nothing better than watching the change as a person begins to develop a relationship with the Savior Jesus Christ. I love sharing the gospel with people. It changed my life and I know it will change many others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that it is true, with all of my heart I know that this is indeed the restored gospel of jesus christ. Because I know what it is like to not attend church and Experienced a period of my life not fully invested in the church and my life seemed dark with out it. When times got hard I felt I had nothing to hold on to. But when I came back to the church, I found happiness beyond anything I could explain. Through this church I have found my best friend and brother. our savior Jesus Christ. I am not perfect and I make mistakes... ALOT. I have found peace in knowing I can be made clean of those through the savior Jesus Christ and that I can live with my family forever with my Father in heaven in happiness for eternity.

How I live my faith

I grew up a member of the church, But i truly found my testimony of it as a 19 year old girl. In my life I want to be my best to love as the savior loved, to serve others and make their day a little brighter. I love doing hair because I learn to love my clients and I can help boost them up and make them feel better than before they sat in my chair. I live my faith by praying, and communicating with god. When in doubt i pray my heart out. By reading the book of mormon daily, by attending church each week and trying my best to be happy even when times are hard. I strive each day to grow closer to christ and to follow his example more than the day before. Right now I am a missionary, so i spend each day teaching new people about this amazing gospel and teach them how they can find true happiness through it, and how it can bring them closer to god. There is nothing I love more than telling people about heavenly fathers plan and love for them.
