Hi I'm Ashlyn

I'm from Enoch, Utah. I like to play tennis and paint. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing tennis and painting random objects. I also love the outdoors. I love to fish, hunt, camp, and shoot. I have five siblings and after moving to college without them I now know how much I really love them. In January 2018 I will be serving the people in the Baton Rouge Louisiana Mission.:)

Why I am a Mormon

When life gets hard and stressful I tend to focus less on living what I believe. But when I take a step back an realize what I am missing, I get on my knees and talk with my Heavenly Father. When I do this I am filled with his love for me and I am at peace. Life is no longer as impossible as it seemed before. I am reminded that there is a plan and a purpose that God created for me. Knowing this brings me joy and hope. I am Mormon because I have asked and I know that this peace I find in my religion is from God and that He really is there and loves me.

How I live my faith

I am currently a ward prayer director, so every Sunday night I'm in charge of gathering everyone from my ward so we can begin the week with a prayer. We also share a spiritual thought and ask a get to know you question. Besides my calling in the church, I try to live my faith by being an example of Christ. I am by all means far from perfect at it, but I do my best to make better choices each day as Christ would. Whether it be by just simply smiling more or focusing more on my scripture study.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I'm a Mormon and I am preparing to serve a mission next month. Why do I want to proselyte and teach others about my religion? Well let me tell you how I decided that I wanted to give a year and a half of my life to love and serve my Heavenly Father. A few years ago I went to a youth program called Especially For Youth (EFY). This was a week long program where I met a group of other teenagers and together we learned about God and increased our testimonies of him. One night we were invited to share what we believe and learned with one another. As I sat there and listened to how living the gospel has blessed lives and realized how it has blessed mine, I was filled with love. I felt true happiness and joy. It was the best feeling I have ever felt, and that is when I knew I wanted to share it. I am going to be a missionary so I can share the joy and love God has for me and everyone else.
