Hi I'm Ashley

I have lived in Utah and Arizona. I am a student at BYU. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four kids. I am a student at BYU majoring in Environmental Science. I love arts and crafts, swimming, reading, scuba diving, and learning new things. I have been known to write the occasional poem or short story; most of my ideas never get written down and just float around in my head instead. I am a lifeguard and swim lesson instructor and I think it's the best job ever! I am a bit of a geek and am a member of a few "fandoms" including SuperWhoLock, Avengers/Marvel, Merlin, Potterheads, and Fairy Tail. It is a life goal of mine to get to comic con, and to have a rocking costume to wear.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love it! Being a member of this church has brought me more happiness than anything else. I have seen this gospel change the lives of others, and I can't imagine my life without it. I have studied and prayed about this gospel and I know that it is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Heavenly Father has given us modern prophets and revelation to guide us today.

How I live my faith

I had a number of leadership positions when I was in the young womens youth group. When I left for college I served as a sunday school teacher in my single student ward, which was a great experience. I feel like I learn more while teaching and preparing to teach than I am ever able to convey to those in my class. I strive to live my faith in my everyday actions by trying to live a Christlike life and being a positive example. Soon I will be leaving to serve a mission and I look forward to being able to share the gospel that has shaped my life with others.
