Hi I'm Ashlyn Shoemaker

I grew up in Pennsylvania. I love fashion and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of four kids. I am a waitress. I played field hockey and was a wrestling manager in high school. I love reading, shopping and being with friends and family. I have three of the most adorable nephews and 2 more either nieces or nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is what my Savior wants me to do. I am the happiest when I am doing what I know is right. When I am reading my scriptures, saying my prayers,going to church and church activities that is when I can feel the closest to my Father in Heaven. I love to see someone's eyes light up when they are learning something about the gospel and they know that what they are being taught is true. I feel like I have been so blessed to be a member of church because it has helped me through trials and heartaches I have gone through in my life. Without this gospel I wouldn't have the hope that I do. I wouldn't have hope that even when it feels like everything is falling down around you and you are all alone that you're not. We have a wonderful, loving Heavenly Father who knows us by name. He wants us to succeed and grow. He will never give us something that we can't handle. He has made it possible for us to come back and live with Him someday. He cares about us so much that He gave us all of the tools we need to succeed and be happy.I know that my Savior died on the cross for me and that because of that I can repent when I have made a mistake and keep trying to be better to one day live with Him and Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just doing what i know is right. I teach the 3 and 4 year olds at my church. I have volunteered at a camp for girls and love it.
