Hi I'm Ashlyn

I'm from Arizona, I'm an only child with a single mother, I love to do international humanitarian work and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah, my mom and I moved to Arizona when I was 13 years old. My parents were divorced when I was about 3 years old. My mom has done an amazing job of raising me on her own, she is the best mom anyone could ever ask for. I have 4 siblings that I get to visit in Utah during the holidays. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel. I've been to London, Paris, Africa, and recently returned from China. I was living there for 4 months and teaching English to children. I loved teaching and serving the people of China so much it almost felt like a mini mission to me. When I got back from China I was originally going back to college but I was inspired that the best thing to do in my life at that moment was to go on a mission. That is what I chose to do, I am currently called to serve a LDS mission in Frankfurt Germany and I couldn't be any happier with my decision.

Why I am a Mormon

If you came up to me about a year ago and asked me if I wanted to serve a mission I probably would of said "no a mission is just not the right thing for me". For some reason I never thought I would go on a mission I just didn't think I would be good enough. But I have gone though a lot of trials in my life that at the time they were the hardest thing but now they have made me stronger and the person I am today. If it wasn't for those trials and the love of Christ telling me I can change and make everything better I wouldn't have chosen to serve the Lord. I love this gospel with all my heart and know the church is true and that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've been called to serve a mission and to me I feel like that is one of the most important ways to live my faith. I'm going to serve the Lord and be the best missionary I can be.
