Hi I'm Taelor Ashton Bithell

I believe laughing is the best calorie burner! Nutella and goldfish are my jam! I'm a full time missionary! And i'm a Mormon :)

About Me

My absolute favorite thing to do is be with my family! They mean the world to me. Whether we are just sittin' and talking or vacationing in Disneyland it's all the same.. I just love being with them. I love to exercise.. Specifically running. It's my go to when i'm stressed, mad, happy or sad! You can also find me in a Spin class; a little blood, sweat, and tears never hurt anyone :) I'm a fan of reading! Yes the mushy/cheesy romance novels are my favorite. Put a book in my hand with some goldfish crackers and apple juice and i'll be entertained for hours. Wanna be my best friend?.. All you gotta do is take me to Cafe Rio. Its killing me not having it on my mission! I love anything outdoors. Boating and four-wheeling is my favorite :) Nutella on everything is a good thing!!! Baseball games with the little brothers is my favorite past time. Rainy days are the best! Laughing till you cry is even better! Jamming out to country music with the windows rolled down will make everything better. And I love hugs :) That's Me!!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this gospel gives me hope and strength. I've experienced many trials growing up, including the death of my beautiful mom and the gospel is what helped me through it. I love knowing that my family can be together forever and that through the atonement of Jesus Christ I can repent of my sins, be forgiven, and forgive myself. Also, because Christ performed the Atonement He understands the hurt, sorrows, and joy I experience. It's nice to know that there is someone out there who knows how I feel, that He knows how I feel. Without this knowledge of Christs love for me I couldn't see making it through life. I've seen what i's like to live without the gospel and It's a lot harder.This gospel is what gives me hope. I know that it is true and i'm so grateful for it :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a disciple of Jesus Christ. Right now I am serving a full-time mission in the Mississippi Jackson Mission. The path that led me to go on a mission was long and hard, but it has been the best decision I have ever made. I know that this is where I need to be and that I am becoming the person I want to be here. And most importantly I know my choice to serve will bless my future family. I love the story of the 2000 stripling warriors in the Book of Mormon. The 2000 young men in this story had to fight their enemies and face death, but they knew they would be okay because the Lord was on there side. In Alma 56 47-48 we read that "they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them." They go on to say.. "We do not doubt our mothers knew it." This is my vision. I want my future family to know that I have a testimony of this gospel and of my savior Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful for my mission and that I am able to live my faith in such a powerful way.
