Hi I'm Ashley Witherspoon

I grew up mostly in Utah. I love music, and learning new skills. I'm a Mormon. I am serving in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission.

About Me

I am the oldest in my family. I attended Weber State University studying accounting and statistics. I love to crochet and do other crafty things, and teach piano to young children. I sing. "Laaaa Laaaa!" I enjoy athletic actvities such as volleyball, golfing, fishing with my family, and playing in the sun. I have lived in Utah most of my life, but have also lived in South Carolina, New Mexico, and Texas. I enjoy good southern food, and traveling. I am a missionary in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission, and I love the gospel! It has blessed my life and changed me for the better. I am a happy, and much more excited about the world and what my future has in store for me!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon, but I grew up outside of Utah. Living away from Utah helped strength my testimony that the Lord loves all of his children, no matter what religion they are. I love being a Mormon because you are taught these things, along with the idea of eternal families, and that there is more to life than just living. I love being a Mormon because this church teaches us to serve others, to help those who need it, and to love all of Heavenly Father's children. I love the Book of Mormon, and I know that it is another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ came down to earth to teach us, and atone for our sins and trials in life, that way we can return home to our Heavenly Father. I am very thankful for what my Savior, Jesus Christ, has done for me. When I read the Book of Mormon, it gives me great strength and peace, and helps me to be a better person. One day I hope to be like my Savior, and return home to a loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I love the Lord. I play the piano for my ward, and enjoyed spending time doing youth activities when I was a young women. I am now serving as a Missionary for the Church in the Ohio Cincinnati mission. I live my faith daily by reading my scriptures every day and praying and attending church on Sundays. I know that by doing these three things, I will never lose hope in my Savior Jesus Christ, and I can feel of the Lords love for me on a daily, hourly, secondly basis. I love to find every opportunity that I can to help out in the community and serve.
