Hi I'm Ashley Kate Baugh

I grew up in Utah. I play college basketball. I love to have fun with my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to mountain bike, camp, fish, play basketball, roller blade, and making music videos. I also really enjoy stenciling T-shirts. In my down time I enjoy watching movies. I love Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I feel something that I can not feel anywhere else.I feel warmth and happiness, and I know it is true. I'm a Mormon because I know that Christ paid the price for our sins in order for us to repent, and therefore we can become righteous enough to live with our Father in Heaven, who loves us so much.

How I live my faith

I enjoy being social and talking with those in my church. I love belonging to a community of people that all love and help each other.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Ashley Kate Baugh
Only healthy and able young men are required to serve a mission. Serving a mission is optional for women, because their first calling is to get married, and have children. The general age for missionaries when they begin serving is 19 to 21, however retired married couples can serve a mission together. Show more Show less
