Hi I'm Lilly Ashlyn DeCaire

I grew up in Utah, I went to Oregon state university, I love my family and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Lilly I was born in Guam but raised in Utah, I attended Oregon state university my freshman year of college and now am preparing to serve a mission. I love sports so much and played tennis basketball and track in high school and I rowed in college.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church, being raised in Utah and around a lot of mormons definitely helped to keep my testimony firm. My father and older sister are not Mormon, but I love and support them nonetheless. I have had many experiences that have proven to me how real God is and how true this gospel is. His hand is in our lives and it is amazing. I am so proud to be a Mormon and I hold that very close to my heart. I love Thomas S. Monsons quote "dare to be a Mormon, dare to stand alone, dare to have a purpose firm, dare to make it known" I live it and I love it.

How I live my faith

In my ward in Oregon I was the secretary for the LDS student association. We would organize activities to do on campus to reach out those that weren't of the LDS faith. We also organized and reaches out to people to attend institute. I have also been a part of the beehive Miamaid and laurel presidency through out the years.
