"Ashley, you have a real gift for writing insightful words. If everyone followed this plan, divorce would be totally eliminated--divorce attorneys would need to find a new profession, and the world would be so much better."
Welcome to Our Faithful Home! How glad I am that you're here! I'm Ashley Ashcraft, a military wife and stay-at-home mama, earnestly seeking the Christ-like life. I invite you to walk alongside me in my quest to glorify God through my roles as a wife, mother, and disciple of Jesus. Join me on this venture, as I also attempt to embrace our ever-surprising, yet completely predictable, antic-filled military lifestyle.
I pray your time here brings you joy, rejuvenation, and a sense of companionship. In a way, I hope we can journey through life together--facing challenges, celebrating victories, admitting our shortcomings, and growing in Christ's likeness as we realize it's all a part of God's plan. The sincerest of blessings to you!
