Hi I'm Ashley Pachner

I grew up in Maryland and I am serving a mission soon. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a future missionary that just received a call to Fresno, California. My mission is Spanish Speaking and I leave shortly. I am a server currently at Olive Garden and I just graduated High School headed to BYU Idaho after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

This church is truly led by God. I can feel so much love and peace in the church. When challenges arrive you not only have your direct family but your church. I love knowing that families can be together forever because it gives me hope when a love one has passed that I will see them again. It makes death bearable because it doesn't end at the grave. I can receive personal answers through prayer and making connections with my Heavenly Father. I can feel the spirit in his temples and I find challenges I go through are there for a purpose to make us better and stronger. I know this is the true church the Book of Mormon has testified it to me and anybody who reads it with a true desire to know if its true will find out the same as me.

How I live my faith

I help assist in teaching the 3 year olds and enjoy that in church. I go out with missionaries to help prepare myself to serve a mission soon.
