Hi I'm Ashley Bourne

I am a missionary in the Armenia/Georgia mission. I am a student at Brigham Young University. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run and really enjoy being outdoors. Hiking, biking, and doing anything that involves getting outside always gets my attention. I attend Brigham Young University in Utah which has been an absolute dream for me because I am surrounded by the mountains and I get to escape the humidity of Houston, TX which is where I am from. I am a Neuroscience major, and find nothing more fascinating than the human brain and all of its capabilities. Back home I have a younger sister who doubles as my best friend as well as two older brothers who I would not make through life without.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a member of this faith has brought me a happiness that I have not been able to attain from anything else in my life so far. I find happiness in nature, from my family, and when I'm with my friends, but nothing like the joy I receive from the gospel of Jesus Christ. Having a knowledge of my Savior's love for me is irreplaceable and it is the reason that I have chosen to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a missionary whenever I can. I have served as a ward missionary, helping people in my congregation in the past and I will serve as a full time missionary in Armenia/Georgia for the next 18 months.
