Hi I'm Ashly

I am a Utah cowgirl, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and I just finished my second semester in the Animal, Dairy, and Veterinarian Science program. I am studying to become a livestock geneticist. I have an amazing boyfriend who is leaving on a mission this summer. I train horses, and do any other kind of ranch work such as fixing fences, shooting potguts, working on the pivots, and caring for any veterinarian needs on livestock. I love the outdoors! My favorite things are Wrangler jeans, my cowboy boots, and my belt buckles. I'm a cowgirl 'cause God made me that way, and I try to enjoy every moment that He gives me here on earth!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because I want to be!! There have been many opportunities for me in my lifetime to decide that being a member of the LDS Church just wasn't for me, but I know that the church is true! I cannot deny the LDS faith, because that would be denying my Heavenly Father and His Son. I could not do that to the two people who love me the very most, so I will stand as a Witness of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places. The Book of Mormon makes me so happy, and I love to listen to the prophet. I have had many experiences in my life that leave no doubt in my mind that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are watching out for me, and I feel the Holy Spirit with me, guiding me to make righteous decisions. I cannot wait to be a missionary so that I can share my love for Jesus Christ with those who might not know Him as well as I do.

How I live my faith

I just moved into a new ward, and I do not have a calling yet, but I am preparing myself to go on a mission! I try to be an example of Christ everyday. I have many friends who are not members, just because of the lifestyle that I live. But that doesn't mean that I can't stand up and stand out!

Are Mormons Christians?

YES!! Of course we are :) I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is His church! When I become a missionary, I want to be able to bring people to the true knowledge of Christ! Everything we do is in His name. He is my Savior. He is my Redeemer. He knows me, my wants, my needs, my fears, and my pain personally. He is my older brother. I love Him more than words can say, and I cannot wait until the day when I can throw my arms around him and personally thank Him for making it possible for me to return home to my Father in Heaven.
