Hi I'm Ashley

I'm an African American who grew up in Idaho, going to school in Utah. Im going to serve a mission in LA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love cultures! All types of cultures. Since I started attending college, I've made it a goal to learn as much about as many different types of cultures that I can. I grew up in Idaho. My sister and I were the only people with dark skin in our ward, and two of the very few dark-skinned kids in high school. I think that there's so much to know about people outside of what I grew up in. I can't wait to serve a mission in Los Angeles, California! I want to share the gospel with everyone! It has brought so much happiness to my life. One day I want to design wedding dresses and plan big events

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because its so good. Everything makes so much sense. The doctrines and principles taught in this church are to help us live in this world that is hard to live in. The gospel is beautiful, real, and so sacred to me. When the standards of this church are followed, life is easier, and we can be happier. This gospel gives me hope, and a reason to get up each day and work hard. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to accept everyone. If Heavenly Father loves all of His children, then so should I! I don't believe in judging a book by its cover. I think that it's important for people to know how special they are so they can reach their potential. I believe that this religion is a hard one to live in the world today, but it is so incredibly worth it. For me, dressing modestly is one of the biggest challenges, but its a choice I have made and I'm committed to. One day I want to design dresses for girls who love fashion like I do, and want to be modest.
