Hi I'm Bretton Ashcroft

I am 20 years old! I love soccer, movies, basketball, and most of all I love my family! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old. Been a Mormon all my life and have the most amazing family ever! I grew up in Logan, Utah with some really amazing people. I had a very fun time growing up, especially because I had the church always a part of my life. I went to Logan High School, and was at Utah State University for one year. Right now I am serving an LDS mission in North Carolina speaking Spanish. After my mission I am planning on returning to Logan and going to school again at Utah State, and hopefully eventually become a Pediatrician. I am also planning on getting married and starting a family of my own!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, primarily because I love Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is everything to me. He did so much for everyone that will ever live, and there is no way we can ever repay him. So I do my best to live as he would have me live, and follow his example. My life is also extremely blessed for being a Mormon. I feel Christ's love for me all the time! I am a Mormon because I know that this the true Church of Jesus Christ, and the only church with the proper authority and keys for acting in Gods name and being able to perform saving ordinances. I I am so grateful that I was raised in this church, and I grew up knowing all these amazing truths! The teachings of Jesus Christ have so much to offer everyone no matter what their circumstances are in life, or what trials they are going through! Jesus Christ and this church can help everyone become so much more happy and blessed! I love being Mormon!

How I live my faith

I primarily show my faith by trying to become better. Nobody is perfect, but when we repent, and try to improve ourselves and become more like Christ, we show our Faith. Right now I am showing my faith by being on a mission. I am sacrificing two years of my normal life, to become a full-time servant of the Lord. I have faith in Jesus Christ and his role in the Plan of Salvation. I live my life striving to prepare myself to be in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
