Hi I'm Aynsley

I'm a small town Texan. Future missionary, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and lived in Utah for quite some time but then moved to the south, where I fell in love with the people and culture of Texas. Being the oldest of 6 kids I was the "tester child" and the example, as I've grown up I now realize how much I love that role. I adopted an adorable Dachshund from the animal shelter named Henry and now love wiener dogs. Only those with this breed will understand.... I play the Violin, String Bass, Piano and appreciate the arts. I graduated High School in 2015 being the only member in my school. I then decided to come up for my first year of college at Weber State University where I studied Psychology. I submitted my mission papers while here and have loved the interactions I have had with

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS by my family, so was baptized at the age of 8. I loved the gospel then and still love it now. I can still remember the day, I was baptized along with 3 other little girls whose birthday's were close to mine. It was raining and the font water was FREEZING! However, none of that is the stuff that matters. My dad baptized me and I remember how excited I was to make this step in my life. But this was just the beginning of my journey. When I was 14 I really came to know that this church was the true church, I was struggling with different things and decided to turn to God for comfort. Needless to say I found it, I got my patriarchal blessing and had a profound desire to center my life on Christ. I know that I am a daughter of God and that he loves me and everyone else on this earth. I have deeply studied the Book of Mormon and I really feel like I learn something new everyday. I now am preparing to serve a full time mission in England. The church is true!

How I live my faith

Living my faith has been a big part of my life, I do this mainly by living the standards and expressing what I believe to others in an appropriate way. Growing up in a town where there where only a few families that were members of the church it was sometimes very difficult. In my school it was only me and my two siblings, I didn't drink or participate in most of the activities that my class mates did so sometimes it upset my peers. I was constantly being asked why I didn't do these things like everyone else did. This was an opportunity I had to share my testimony with others and express to them my beliefs. Some people accepted it and didn't try again to make me do something I wouldn't. But like always, there were others who were even more upset. I was constantly being watched by those, since they wanted to try and catch me slip up. This made me even more firm in living the way the gospel had advised its members. I loved my religion and let it show, I didn't get embarrassed when people would mock me like it was a bad thing, and eventually people stopped caring. However difficult it may have been for me I still am extremely grateful for the outcome. It built me into who I am and I would never change it. So stand tall and let your spirit show! I have also served in the church in many different callings at many different times.
