Hi I'm Ashlyn

I am from Salt Lake City Utah and currently studying at BYU-Hawaii. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am one of 11 children. I have 5 brothers and five sister. I am currently studying Marine Biology in college. I love learning about the ocean and the animals in it! I love to read, draw and cook! I love to get involve with the community and meet new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God lives and that God loves His children. The gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life in so many ways and will continue to. I know that God is a literal loving Heavenly Father who has sent His beloved children to earth so they may become like Him someday. I know that He sent His son Jesus Christ to earth to perform the Atonement so we may all repent and live with our Father in Heaven again. I have a strong testimony in the power of prayer. I believe that Heavenly Father hears and responds to all of His children. He is aware of all our trials, hardships, pains, weaknesses as well as our talents, accomplishment, good deeds and beliefs. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He believes in us because He can see our potential. I believe that through obedience to Living Prophets and apostles, we will know that path our Father in Heaven wants us to take in order to successfully make it home to Him again. I believe that Joseph Smith was a literal Prophet and that he saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ that spring morning. I have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. It is truly another testament of Jesus Christ. It is through reading and studying its teachings I have found answers to my prayers. I know that God loves me and all of His children and desires for all to succeed. It makes me so happy to say that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each week and trying to serve others. I am new to visiting teaching but I love it! It is a time for me to study and teach a lesson about the gospel to another person. It always teaches me to love more like Christ does. I love getting to know the sisters I visit teach. They teach me so much. I love studying the scriptures. They truly are the word of God.
