Hi I'm Ashley Ann

I'm a convert to the church. I'm a tattooed divorcée and mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read and to sing. I'm a published author. I have two daughters and a son. I have a master's degree in English. I want to pursue a PhD when my kids are all school age. My first marriage was built on worldly things, so I ask Heavenly Father daily for an eternal marriage with the right person.

Why I am a Mormon

After my mother and brother converted to the church, I chose also to join, but I felt that Heavenly Father had been guiding me long before that. I tell other members about the various times that Heavenly Father guided me in my life toward ways that I could choose the right, and about ways that I chose the wrong and how that turned out for me. Missionaries will quote scriptures which tell people to pray and ask Heavenly Father if the church and scriptures are true. In our daily lives, praying and asking Heavenly Father to guide us in all decisions great and small is a blessed thing. Heavenly Father may not care which menu item we choose or what color dress we wear, but if we let him guide us in little things we will know how to hear him when big things need deciding on. I spent a majority of my life doing things my way, and have enough physical and metaphorical scars to prove to me that Heavenly Father's way is better.

How I live my faith

I attend meetings as regularly as I can and visit with the missionaries regularly. I have not yet received any callings within the church, but will gladly accept them as they come. I like to find opportunities in my daily life to be charitable to all humans, regardless of church affiliation, but I do like to participate in church-based activities whenever possible so that my children are surrounded by strong, positive role models.
