Hi I'm Ashley

I am from Orem Utah, and I am serving as a missionary in Portland Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to a semester of college at BYU Idaho, and I absolutely loved it! My major is nursing, and I am a certified medical assistant. I love to run. I run cross country, track, and races. I pretty much run races just to get the t-shirt:) I also love to play soccer. I am the middle child of 7. Some of my hobbies are camping, fishing, shooting, sports, hiking, really anything outside. Someday I am going to travel the world!I also play the harp. And I am going to go on a mission to Portland Oregon!! I am so excited!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I have gown up in the gospel. And I have always been taught these things. But I have come to learn that it is true for myself. I know from experience that Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. Anyone can ask if this church is true. And if they do ask with a sincere heart, they will receive an answer. I am a Mormon because it makes my life so happy. To know that I am a child of God, and that He will always be there for me, brings so much comfort. And to know that Jesus Christ suffered for me, to know that I am able to repent of my sins, helps me to become a better person. And it brings me so much joy. Why am I a Mormon? Because it brings me peace, comfort, joy, and happiness.

How I live my faith

Right now my calling is ward missionary. I am just learning how to do this, but have enjoyed what I have learned so far. I have seen the examples of other ward missionaries, and I have also seen the love that they have for who they are teaching. I have had other callings in the young women's program, and youth programs. I can see how Heavenly Father will help me, when I turn to Him.
