Hi I'm Ashlyn Goodwin

I'm a missionary in the Philippines. I love being outside and playing sports. I love to spend time with family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love being outside and doing any activity. I enjoy playing volleyball, softball, hunting, camping and especially boating. I am a competitive person and love playing any game or a challenge. I also love cooking, sewing, playing with kids, and working with special needs kids. I am currently serving a mission in the Philippines Legazpi Mission, Tagalog speaking. When I grow up I want to be a mom!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or a Mormon, because it brings true happiness and peace to my life. I know that Jesus Christ knows us and can help us each in such a personal way. I find true and lasting happiness, even in hard times, through living the teachings of the Church and following Christ. I know that we can each pray and find out for ourselves that the church is true, and that it can give us more of a purpose. Sharing what I know makes me happy, and living the gospel is very exciting to me!

How I live my faith

I attend my weekly Sunday meetings. I love applying the teachings of the church in my everyday life, because it makes a difference for me. I participate in ward activities and service. When we serve and participate in our wards and neighborhoods, there is a feeling of a "ward family". I am serving a mission in the Legazpi Philippines Mission. I am on a mission because I want to share what the blessings of the gospel that I have felt with others. I love sharing the happiness that I have received from living the gospel and having a personal relationship with Christ.
