Hi I'm Ashley

I love sports, I love Indiana, I have THE best family ever, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am from Indiana, and I love being a Hoosier. I have also lived in Michigan and Germany, and I loved both places- moving around taught me so much. I am studying Special Education at Brigham Young University right now, and I am so excited to become a teacher! I love sports. I played volleyball all throughout high school, and it was my favorite thing to do! I love watching all sports- especially my favorite teams, the Indiana Pacers and the Indianapolis Colts. I love being active and being outdoors. My very favorite things to do are to make memories with my family and my friends. I love my family more than anything, and I can't wait to start a family of my own one day. I do want to be an special education teacher, but above all, I can't wait to be a mother and to raise my own children in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel is true! This gospel is a gospel of love, hope, peace, joy, and progression. All good things come because of this gospel! I am a Mormon because it has provided me with so much knowledge. I know that I can live with my family forever, with God. I know that we are sons and daughters of our Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. Because of Him, we can improve. We can progress. I can become clean and pure. I can become better! Everything that I am, and everything that I will be, is all because of Him! I am a Mormon because this gospel has provided me with guidelines from our loving Heavenly Father that allows us to have direction and clarity in this life. I am a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that by studying it, we can come closer to Him. I am so blessed to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and to have the knowledge that I do. I am a Mormon because all things in this world denote there is a God. How grateful I am to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

In all that I do, I try to put God first. I know that if I put God first, I will be blessed in all other aspects of my life. I live my faith by fulfilling my callings at church to the best of my abilities. I live my faith by being a good example to those around me and to my family. Being raised in an area with not very many Mormons, I had to stay strong and set a good example for my friends and neighbors, even when it was hard to not do what others were doing. In high school, I chose not to play volleyball on Sundays. While this was hard, I know that I received countless blessings for putting God first in my life. I live my faith by serving others. I live my faith by praying and studying my scriptures daily. I live my faith by trying my best to become my best self every day. I know that when we show God our love, obedience, and devotion, he will shower us with blessings.
