Hi I'm Ashley M Fowles

I grew up in Oak City Utah. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Love the outdoors! Im a Mormon!

About Me

I've moved twice in my life and all in close proximity! My parents devorced when I was very young but i can still remember the screaming matches my parents had. My parents have both remarried and have recently been sealed to their spouses in the temple! I attend the Young Singles Ward! I love to ride my horses, four wheelers, go camping, swimming in the river, cliff jumping, biking, watching movies, playing cards, playing my viola, snowboarding, trying new food, traveling, dancing and dressing up for Halloween! I graduated high school in 2011 and graduated Massage Therapy College the next year! I also love working on firefighting support crew, managing moblie shower units! I love seeing the look of relief the fire fighters have after being deprived for several weeks of a hot shower! I am a young convert to the church and am still hoping the rest of my family on my mothers side will join us in our happiness we have found in the LDS gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I am human and am not perfect! The church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is not for perfect people, its like a hospital for our souls! I see the side of my family that are not mormon and how they struggle and i sometimes think that if they would just join the church and learn of Christ it would bring them so much happiness and peace! I have seen firsthand how the gospel has changed my mother and then my father and how it continues to bring them joy and peace of mind! As I look back on my life I can see Christ's hand and how and when he has helped me and I know if it were not for him I would be in a dark hole. I would not have graduated high school or gone to college or done all the things I've done! It has not been easy and if it were, there would be no point, because you are either moving forward or backward! Life is hard but with the gospel in my life it has been less stressful and a little easier! The gospel invites change but it is good change and in the end it is always worth it! With the gospel I have found purpose and happiness and a peace I could not find anywhere else! Anyone and everyone can find those same things in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, if they truely desire them! These things I testify of to be true in the name of Jesus Christ amen!

How I live my faith

I have been on the churches committee for activities. I have also been on a committee to organize Service Projects and my wards Family Home Evening where we play games and have lessons about the gospel principles!
