Hi I'm Ashley

I'm from Salt Lake City. I like to write and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I would consider myself a nerd. I love almost all things nerdy. My collection of superhero t-shirts is larger than the rest of my entire wardrobe. I'm going to college, but still undecided on my major. I know I want to help people. I just haven't quite determined out how yet. I would like to figure it out before I get old though. It would be nice. I love to write. I hope to have some work published one day. I mainly do it for fun and a way to relax. I also fancy mustaches. They're great. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and comfort I have in my life. With all the scary things happening around us, it's the best feeling to know that everything will be okay in the end. I was born into the church, so I guess I've always had that foundation. As I've grown up, I can see how the gospel and commandments are there to help us. It may seem like a lot of "rules," but they're there for protection. I've seen so many people not follow the commandments and their lives just aren't what they could be. I could not deny my testimony even if I tried. I know that the Lord is always there for us. He wants the best for us and is looking out for us. It may not seem like it at times, but He always is! We are His children and He loves you and me. I've felt it in my life and you can too! I know that if we follow His commandments we will be blessed. Service is a fantastic thing. It always uplifting and helps keep me on the right track. Heaven knows I need the guidance. I am not perfect. I've made mistakes, but the Atonement gives me the blessing of making things right. The Lord just needs you and me to be the best possible people we can be.

How I live my faith

For about a year I was apart of my school's LDS Institute council. We planned activities for the students, tried to make it an inviting place to come, made friends, and just served those that came. I wouldn't trade my time on the council for anything. I learned so much about myself and just how amazing other people are. My knowledge has grown from those around me. In my singles ward, I try to talk to those who don't have a lot of friends or don't come often. I'm not always successful, but I hope I make some difference. It's fun to listen to people and hear their stories. Everyone is from different walks of life and no two stories are the same. The variety of people I meet never ceases to amaze me.
