Hi I'm Kelly Ashcroft

I live in Hurricane Utah. I work in sales and I also love the out doors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 3 kids. 1 daughter and 2 sons and 1 dog and 1 cat. I work in sales for fencing products. I grew up on the Navajo Indian reservation and went to school there until I was in the 5th grade. I loved it there and learned to love the people there. I love being out doors. I love rappelling the canyons of Utah. I also love water sports such as swimming skiing and scuba diving. One of my favorite places is our cabin in the mountains. I love spending family time there hiking and fishing. My wife and kids are the center of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and am very grateful for that. I always loved going to church when I was young. I never fell away from it. I have always tried to do what is asked of me. That isn't to say that I am perfect. I am far from it but that is one of the things that is so great about this church. If you make mistakes then there is always a way back and it is done with love not hate. I was able to serve a mission and be one of those young men in white shirts and ties. That mission changed my life and helped me become the person I am today. I served in North Carolina and it was there that I learned for myself that the Mormon church was true. That my Heavenly Father is there for me. He loves me and wants me to be successful. It was there too that I learned the Jesus Christ is my savior and that through him we can return back to my Heavenly Father and land live there with him and with my family. You see when we die that isn't the end. We can live with our family even after this life. It just makes since that we would still be together in the next life. Why would a loving Heavenly Father not allow us to be with those people we learn to love in this life. I know that the things I am telling you are true. That this is the true church on the earth today. And I would invite you to come and join us. Look into the Mormon church and see for yourself if it doesn't offer what you are looking for. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I love the way the Mormon church keeps people involved in the church. We keep people involved by serving each other and helping each other. People in the church have callings that they serve in by teaching a Sunday School class or by being in charge printing the Sunday meeting program. We also have a bishop that is the leader of the ward or congregation. He also has counselors that help him. All these calling are volunteer. The calling I have allows me to serve and help all the wards. I get to help them if they have any needs and I also get to speak once a month in there Sunday Meetings. I know that by me doing this it helps me to learn more and more. That is what is so great about being a Mormon is that we learn more all the time. The church encourages us to learn all we can and to become closer to Jesus Christ by learning of him and his teachings.
