Hi I'm Ashley

I'm studying to become a pastry chef. I love to create. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I'm not spending time with my amazing husband, you'll probably find me in the kitchen. Baking has been a great love of mine since I was in grade school and my dreams of becoming a pastry chef are being realized as I attend pastry school in the mid west United States. I love to travel, spend time with my family, read a good book, and create.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so blessed to have been born into a family that already had the gospel. My wonderful parents taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ and as I grew older I developed my own testimony and knowledge that the church is true. My testimony grows as I think of my blessings and the peace that the gospel brings to me. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and that he knows me personally. I know that families can be together forever, that I can be reunited with my family members once we have passed on from this life. I know that God has a plan for me and that through His son Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven of my sins and repent. I know that someday I can live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I get to share my talents with the children at church by playing the piano during their singing time. I love listening to their sweet voices as we sings songs about our families, our blessings, God's love, and the beautiful world with live in. It is important to teach them while they are young to know who they are as God's children and the divine potential they have as such.  

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are the most basic unit of society. What happens in families extends to communities, which in turn influences cities, then states, then countries, then the world. Strong righteous families produce strong righteous individuals that can shape the world! Being in a family also teaches us how to become more like our Heavenly Father. We learn how to love unconditionally, and to give selflessly. We learn patience and kindness and hard work. These things help us to grow.    Show more Show less
