Hi I'm Ashley Hopkin

I am from Utah. I love all kinds of music. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 6, my parents and then three younger brothers who I love very much. I grew up in Utah, and I absolutely love it! I love the mountains, the hot summer days, and how the canyons turn beautful colors during the fall. I love hanging out with my friends and watching movies and eating food. Oh how I love food! And one of the things I love most in life is music. All kinds of music. I love to sing and play the piano and I love going to dance parties with my friends where we just sing at the top of our lungs while we dance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I was taught from the time I was a small child about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have always been a member of this church, and that is because I have gained a testimony that this gospel is true. I have prayed to know, and I have received an answer to my prayers. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today. Because I know these things, it makes me want to be a better person. It helps me to know how I can be a better person. Without the gospel of Jesus Christ I would not be the happy person that I am today.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Scotland. It has really helped me to realize that being a member of this church is more than just going to church every Sunday. It is actually living the standards and the teachings that I have been taught my entire life. As I have taught people about how they can come closer to Jesus Christ, it has helped me to come even closer as well. I have learned that true happiness comes from living the commandments of God.
