Hi I'm Ashlee

I grew up in Utah. I Love soccer. I am going to school to become a Marine Biologist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love soccer and have grown up playing it my entire life. Reading is one of my favorite things to do, but they have to be good, fun books. My favorite places to be are at Disneyland, the beach (anywhere!), and/or at home.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church with all my heart. The past few years, my family was going through a hard time due to some choices that my father made. Because of those decisions, my family was separated for a time. It was a "make it or break it" situation. It was a very confusing time. "How could this happen?""Why is this happening?" It was then when I looked to my Heaven Father, at this time not knowing whether anyone was listening. I asked, "Is this church really true? I have lived the gospel my entire life and I dont know what I did to deserve this! How can you be there and still let this happen?" Once I asked those questions, I felt an overwhelming calm. I only felt peace, no confusion, no doubt. This is the true church. Through the atonement of Christ, I was and am still able, everyday, to feel that love and comfort. I am able to repent and be forgiven for my sins, have His strength and comfort when I need to make it through. I am so grateful to Joseph Smith for restoring the gospel back to the earth. I know I can do anything with the help of Jesus Christ and God on my side.

How I live my faith

One of the things I do to live my faith is serve. Helping others is an amazing way both give and receive blessings in life. I am in charge of sports night every Tuesday, a time where you can ignore things and just have fun with friends. Seeing everyone have fun and enjoying themselves, with my help and everyone is who is participating is a great feeling.
