Hi I'm Ashley

I live in Missouri, I'm a wife, mother, currently serving a mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have four daughters, and we live in Missouri. I'm currently serving a Family History Service Mission from my home! I work online and serve in the imaging department. I would have never thought I would serve a mission after getting married and having four little ones still at home. It's incredible!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I truly believe that there is no other church who has the priesthood keys and true authority on this earth today. We have a prophet and apostles just as in times of old. God didn't stop talking to His children after Christ died. His church is still organized as it always has been. When I was a teenager I read the Book of Mormon and really prayed to know if Joseph Smith really was true. I knew that God would tell me if I was asking with a pure intent to just want to know truth. I felt the most warm and tingling sensation run throughout my whole being. It lasted for a few minutes, and I knew without a doubt the answer was a resounding yes. I never questioned that answer. I have held fast to it, even when it's not always been popular to believe in such an amazing story as Joseph Smith. This faith is not a Sunday event only. This is a way of life, and it's incredibly fulfilling and gives you purpose and connection to something far greater than you could imagine otherwise. I have been incredibly happy with my faith. It's a wonderful way to live, it's full of good and loving people, and I truly feel that this is Christ's true church on the earth today. The standards are high, true principles are taught, and the morals that govern this church are sound. The temples hold answers that can't be found in the bible alone. The Book of Mormon is another inspired set of scripture that not only compliments the bible it gives more light and understanding to it as well. If you are really searching for your path in life and your purpose here on earth, read The Book of Mormon, ask the missionaries lots of questions...and pray to know for yourself if it's true. He's listening and He will answer.

How I live my faith

I serve in my church as a secretary in our women's group. I make sure birthdays are announced, women are visited, and those who are organizing things have all the information they need so our communication is runny smoothly. I love getting to know other women. Being part of Christ's ministry by reaching out to others, remembering them, and fellowshipping them is incredibly fulfilling!
