Hi I'm Ashlyn

I live in Idaho, I'm an irish dancer, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in high school and have survived so far. Throughout my life, I have been a hard worker in almost everything I do. In my free time, I am a competitive irish dancer and I spend time with my family. When I am older, I want to get a degree in business and get mt TCRH/ACRG so I can teach dance and share my love for it with my students. I also want to be a mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up with the church in my life. Being apart of this church has taught me that I am a precious daughter of Heavenly Father and he loves me. Knowing this has been a comfort through my times of trial.

How I live my faith

I have served as a class president for the young girls age 12-13 and am currently a counselor for the young women age 14-15. This has taught me how to be a leader, an example of Christ, and a friend to those young women. I also read at least one verse in my scriptures and I say my prayers every night before bed. This has helped me stay strong in the gospel.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Ashlyn
This is a question I get asked a lot. Many of my friends have asked me if I can have soda due the LDS Church's health code, known as the Word of Wisdom. It condemns alcohol, tobacco and "hot drinks," which church leaders have subsequently described only as "coffee and tea." There are plenty of other myths out there that aren't true. My life is pretty normal. I dance, I hang out with friends, and I go to school. But I have the light of Christ in my life, which is something I want everyone to be able to enjoy. I do personal prayer, scripture study, and attending church. Families are an essential part of God's Plan and I spend a lot of time with mine. This brings us closer. I want to share the happiness we enjoy with everyone I can. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Ashlyn
No, Mormons help everyone. In fact, most of what they do is to help those who are not Mormons. For example, there are more than 53,000 Mormon missionaries serving all around the world today. What they do is go around a serve others, many who are not Mormon, for 1.5 - 2 years. Show more Show less
