Hi I'm Ashlee

I grew up in Utah. I'm a singer, a lover of the arts, a dreamer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a currently a Vocal Performance Major at Weber State University and love sharing my abilities with others, in hopes that it brings peace and joy to those listeners. I love anything pertaining to the arts, such as plays, writing, and drawing and hope to pursue those passions later on in life. Books and music take up a majority of my life and, to me, is never time wasted. I love animals and enjoy horseback riding when provided the opportunity. I have one younger brother who was born with Spina Bfida, however, despite having a disability nothing prevents him from doing anything he puts his mind to. Having a younger brother with Spina Bfida, combined with my love of horses, inspired me to volunteer with Hippotherapy programs ("Hippo" meaning horse), such as the National Ability Center's program located in Park City, Utah, and Freedom Riders, located in Farr West. Horseback riding programs that provide opportunities for those with disabilities to receive therapy through horseback riding sessions.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Latter-Day Saint all my life and am now at the age that requires me to begin making my own decisions about my personal life. The reason I am a Mormon is because of the great love that I have felt from the people I am surrounded by in my ward and the many blessings I have received from my Heavenly Father, which has exemplified His love. I know that without the Gospel in my life I would not be where I am today. I know in my heart that all that the LDS Church promotes is for the good of their members and are things that are emotionally and spiritually uplifting. I want to be a living example of what the LDS Church believes in and promote all that is good in the world also.

How I live my faith

I helped to plan my last Girl's Camp for the Young Women as Youth Camp Leader, which was immensely fun to plan and participate in (it was a Superhero theme). I recently was in Primary as Primary Chorister, preparing the kids for their Primary Program coming up in September. I loved every minute of teaching the kids, they are all such sweet spirits and through this calling I was better able to get to know each of them.
