Hey! Im Ashley! Im 19 years old and a sophomore in college. Im majoring in Business Administration and working on getting my Associate of Arts degree. I will change my major to Secondary Business Education when I transfer and work towards getting my Bachelors degree. I plan on becoming a high school Business teacher at my old high school. I also love photography taking and editing pictures.
When I was 8 years old, I realized that I was a sinner and the ONLY way to Heaven was to ask Jesus Christ to forgive me for my sins and to accept Him into my heart, I was also baptized. During my middle school years, I lived in Las Vegas "SIN CITY" I soon fell into sin again and wasn''''''''''''''''t living my life for Christ.
In January of 2006, my parents divorced and I moved to Potosi, MO. I began attending Potosi Southern Baptist Church. In June of 2006, Jamey Ragle, an evangelist, came to speak at church. Through his message, he made me realize that my Saturday nights weren''''''''''''''''t matching up to my Sunday mornings that night, I rededicated my life to Christ! That was a decision that I will never regret! Now, I am an active member at Potosi Southern. I have an AWESOME church family to support me, youth group to help me grow stronger in God, and choir to praise God with every Sunday morning!
I have participated in three mission trips so far with the BLAZE Youth Ministry. I have been to Bismarck, North Dakota to help spread the word about a new church Chalmette, Louisiana to help rebuild a church that was destroyed from Hurricane Katrina and Ellington, Missouri to get stronger as a Youth Ministry, to realize that Its not about me..Its all about Jesus, and to paint a house that is used to house missionaries. I thank God for allowing me to go on these trips and to get so much out of them and to grow in my spiritual walk!
