Hi I'm Ashley

I'm a student and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm from the UK. I'm 23 years old currently studying at university. I like spending my free time having fun with friends and family. I like music, films and food probably a little too much. I also enjoy exercising from time to time. I served a mission for my church in Spain where I spent time getting to know new people and teaching them about our beliefs. since then I have been focusing mainly on studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church meaning my parents were already baptised into the church before I was born so I've grown up used to the Mormon church. I came to a point in my mid-teens where I had to decide for myself whether this was something I wanted to live for myself. I prayed and read the Book of Mormon to understand if this is God's true church on the earth and if he wanted me to stay in the church. I felt the Holy Spirit confirm to me that this church is good and the correct thing for my life. I'm not perfect and some of the Mormon observances may seem overly strict but I know God just wants to bless us, and he blesses us when we keep his commandments.

How I live my faith

I try and be a good example wherever I go. I sometimes regret not always standing up for the right thing but I see that as a learning experience. the church where I live go out visiting families from the church to support and strengthen them. I try and participate in this whenever I can.
