Hi I'm Ashley

I grew up in Idaho and I' m studying to be an interior designer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was a previous college student studying interior design. I get excited over the idea of designing and creating something out of an empty room. I love playing the piano and singing. Though I am not very good at it, I love running. I love hiking and being outdoors. I grew up in a large family and everyday I am away from them I miss them so much! They are all so silly and make me so happy. I am so thankful that I can be with my family forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church but true conversion didn't come for me until I was a junior in High School. I was struggling with friends who had decided to make some wrong choices. I struggled in knowing who I was and why I was here. I wanted to know for myself that the church was true. So, I sat down and I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover. As I read, I felt so much peace and the Holy Ghost bore witness in my heart that it was true. I felt so much happiness and peace from reading it that I knew it was true. After reading the Book of Mormon, I followed Moroni's council and I asked Heavenly Father if it was true. The peace and comfort that I received testified to me that it was true. I know that this is the true church and the Book of Mormon is true. I still experience trials but as I do what is right, I am comforted in knowing that I am not alone. I know that my savior lives and what comfort that gives me. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

While attending church, I have been able to join in lots of service whether it be serving in Humanitarian projects or serving food for a funeral. I have been able to join the service comity to help throughout the community. Recently we were able to plant trees and plants in a local homeless shelter. While I am serving others, I feel that I am living my faith. Doing service helps me to feel closer to my Father in Heaven. I am also currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love sharing this gospel and I can't wait for others to find the joy and happiness I have received from it.
