Hi I'm Ashlee

I love to help others. I am the youngest of 4 kids. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and I am the youngest of four. I have an older brother that is married and just a had a baby boy. A sister that is currently serving a mission in Canada. And another sister that is married and has a 1 1/2 yr old boy. After I graduated high school I went to college for a year. And then I decided to take a break from college for 18 months and serve a mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon religion and was taught since I was little the gospel. However when I was about 18 I decided that I wanted to know for myself if the things that I had been taught were true and gain my own testimony. So I decided to read the Book of Mormon and find out for myself if the things that I had been taught were true. I started reading and praying to know. Instead of just doing it because I was told to. This time I truly had a desire to know. I started noticing a difference in my life as I was drawing closer to my Savior. As I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true and, all that I had been taught from when I was little I had the confirmation that it is in fact the true church. That this is the fullness of the everlasting gospel and the way to true happiness. I am so thankful for my Savior and for the knowledge that I have that if I work every day to do as He has taught I can one day return to live with Him, my Heavenly Father and my family forever. What an amazing blessing and promise that is!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by my everyday actions. I strive to be an example of my Savior in all that I do and say and strive to be the person that He would want me to be. As I was growing up then I would try to do the things that I was taught. Ready my scriptures, pray, be a good example. Now as I continue to do those things every day I can see the change that it has had on me and those that I am around.
