Hi I'm Ashton Smedley

I'm from Inkom Idaho, I love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite activity is skiing, and it works out well because I live 5 minutes from a ski resort. I am the oldest son of 5 children. I received my mission call to Jacksonville Florida, and I report to the MTC on November 15. After I serve a mission, I plan on attending BYU Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was fortunate enough to be raised in a LDS home. I continue to live a Mormon life because I know that this church it true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because every time I read it, I feel the spirit, which is a sign of its truthfulness. I know that Joseph Smith restored this church and that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins so that we can live with our Heavenly Father again. And I am so thankful for all those who have sacrificed so much so that we can have this gospel on this Earth today and worship how we may. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and blessing the sacrament as a priest in the Aaronic Priesthood.
