Hi I'm Ashlyn

I love to smile, and I'm currently serving in the Baltic Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ashlyn Johnson. I was born in Vladivostok Russia. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Baltic Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as soon as I came here to the United States. I was taught of His gospel, and learned to love it as the years went on. As I went through life, I began to learn and grow and realize how important His work was. I always knew it was true. But when I was younger.. I just hadn't figured out for myself if I really knew it was true. I had so many questions, and for some reason I felt like they were never being answered. It wasn't till my early teen years that I discovered for myself that I had a testimony of this amazing Gospel. As all of us go through life, we face challenges. We face things that are hard, and we question why, and why He would do this to us. Well as time went on, I had to face challenges that helped me know it was true. But with the encouraging, and strong influences around me, I was able to grow and see the good from it. At that moment, I realized so many important things. We should always be ready; for the good, and for the bad. I know and testify that now matter what God puts us through... He wants us to be Happy. To enjoy the Good. To enjoy the bad. To enjoy this GREAT journey! Times are hard, but as we humble ourselves, and grow closer to him.. We can get through the hard things! These trials are what made me realize that this church is true. It is the ONLY true church. It made me realize that I always had a testimony, and it helped me strengthen it. I am a mormon because I believe with my whole heart that this is the true church, and I am so excited to share this wonderful gospel with the people I will be serving!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each day to become a better person. Whether it be by reading my scriptures every night, praying every night, or sharing my thoughts about the gospel with a friend. I am currently serving as a full time Sister Missionary in the Baltic Mission. I know that as I am obedient and follow the commandments I have been given, I will gain a stronger testimony of what the Lord's plan for me is.
