Hi I'm Ashley Hirata

About Me

I love playing tennis and soccer! I also love craft projects such as knitting and crochetting! I joined the church in Dec 2012 because of the example that was set by my friend and their family! I am currently studying nursing in college hoping to pursue my dreams as an RN and to help those in need! I was called to serve in the Japan, Fukuoka mission and I am so excited to serve!

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a mormon... I am a Mormon because of the love that Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ have for me, and the comfort that the Holy Ghost gives me. At first, I was a member of a different church, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. Later, I met my friend who would answer all my questions about the church and eventually introduced me to the missionaries and took lessons from them. Four months after investigating The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I was baptized. Since then, my testimony has been growing each day, and I've been blessed so many times it is impossible to count on all my fingers ! The greatest blessing that I have received was to know that Heavenly Father loves ME. No matter what. and that He knows ME and chose ME to be here. I know that there's a reason for me to be here no matter what people have said to me. "I can do all things, through Christ who strengthens me"

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making sure I pray every morning and read my scriptures. Doing this ensures that I have a good day and nothing can bring me down!! I live my faith by living the commandments and staying obedient. Yes, there are times when I mess up, but by repentance and the Savior's Atonement, I am able to get back on my feet and start a new. I love this church and I make sure that its in my life everyday and every second.
