Hi I'm Ashtyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and am currently attending college and loving it! I absolutely love to draw and am planning on majoring in animation. I love reading and video games, and playing with my dog. I currently have my mission call to the Brazil Porto Alegre North Mission, and I am set to leave on May 4th (May the Fourth be with you).

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, so for a long time, I only went because it was what was expected of me and it was just how I was raised. Once I was a teenager, I really had to decide for myself if I wanted to be a part of this religion, and after much personal study and prayer, I felt in my heart that this is the true church. I know that there is a Savior, and that He personally knows each and every one of us and every struggle, disappointment, and heartache that we have been through. I know that He chose to die for us, because He loves us and wants us to return to live with our Father in Heaven. I know that through the temple, families can last forever. I know that Joseph Smith and all following prophets were called of God to lead this church. I know that because Joseph Smith is a true prophet, that the Book of Mormon is also true, and I know these things to be true, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

In my home ward, I have a calling to teach the 9 year old girls. It is such a blast to be able to get to know them and I really learn a lot from them. My calling helps me to learn how to effectively teach the gospel, which is great to prepare for my mission.
