Hi I'm Ashleigh

Eu sou de Oklahoma. Minha família se divorciaram, e os dois são casaram novamente. Eu amo minha família, música, e crianças.

About Me

Eu sou um missionario da Igreja de Jesus Cristo Dos Santos Dos Últimos Días. I love music, dancing, crocheting, blogging, playing games, being around kids and reading and learning from the scriptures. I am a very open and outgoing person. I speak my mind, and I love hard work. Eu falo minhas pensamentos, e gosto de ler as escrituras e aprender os significados deles. I love the church, and all that it has done for me and my family. Sendo um Missionario pode ter difficuldades alguns tempos. Minhas experiencias me ajuda a ser mais humilidade e vem mais cerca a Jesus Cristo. Ether 12:27 is my favorite Book of Mormon verse. On page 510, it reads, "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is where the Lord wants me. I know that this church is true. If I didn't believe it, I woudn't be on a mission.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith my serving a mission. I am very blessed to be doing so. I have noticed significant changes in my life by doing this. My scripture study and understanding of the scriptures along with gospel doctrine have been deepened, and I am more in tune with the spirit than I ever before had been. How do I live my faith? I live it by giving of my life and time to the will of the Lord by doing his work first in Los Angeles California, then one day in Porto Alegre Brazil. I know at times that putting your faith in God is difficult. I have had many difficulties in my life. Doubts if the Lord is really there. Even though I am this close to the Lord, I still struggle with it at times. I have to humble myself every day when I am not in Brazil. I have to remind myself that the Lord needs me here, and I smile because I know that he is in every detail of my life. I don't need to understand all things, I just have to have faith in all things. I know that the Lord loves me and all of his children on Earth. As a missionary, I have that opportunity to feel his love for everyone. What a blessing!
