Hi I'm Ashton

I am a writer, I've lived on three continents, I speak Tagalog, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In the last 3 years I have lived on 3 different continents Europe, North American, and Asia. I don't know where I will be in the next 3 years but I do know that their is a God and that if we listen to him he will guide us. I may not have all the answers but he does and because of prayer I know how to get real answers from him. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I choose to be a Mormon, because I know that this is the Lords true church. Different experiences in my life have added up to build a faith strong enough to keep me from fearing in this ever crazy world. It is hard for me to describe the things that have happened in my life to prove to me once and for all that their is a god and that he does love me, is mindful of me, and that this is his one true church. I think it would be safe for me to say that the only way I ever knew these things to be true was by experiencing them for myself by looking for myself and searching to find that their was a god and that his love and guidance had brought me into his church. My only hope and prayer is to follow him the best I can by living the Gospel of his son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Having just returned form serving a full time 18mth mission I think the greatest thing I've learned about living my faith is how all that Christ asks of is is to do unto others what he would do. I live my faith by sharing it and as a result seeing it grow stronger and deeper within me. I am now a young and single adult attending a congregation full of other young and single adults which is great in that it gives others a huge blessing of support and friendship. I feel blessed to be in such a situation to not only receive the blessing of Christ like love but to work my hardest to have charity and to give back to others needed love and friendship I live my faith by studying each and every day the words of Christ through the scriptures and though living prophets. I love to go and worship in the Temple, the house of the lord. Simple prayer is a huge way of living my faith, just knowing I can go and pray and anything to my loving father in heaven. 

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Ashton
Missionaries of our faith have a unified purpose in their work which is... To invite others to come unto Christ by helping them to receive the restored gospel. This restored gospel is the reason why Mormons proselyte even to others who are already Christians. It is because we believe that their does exist in this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the power and authority of God to baptize and thereby bring eternal salvation to individuals. We believe that this authority had once existed on the earth was then lost and returned in our time period. However this authority as well as the fullness of all the teachings, we believe are found only here in Christs true church and thus we preach to all those who have yet to find Gods authority to bring salvation unto his children.  Show more Show less
