Faith Over Fear

It’s been well over two months since I have posted. As I sat down to write this morning with a large cup of coffee and and a side of great expectations I thought: “Am I even a ‘blogger’ anymore?” “Is anyone still following?” “Okay Ashlyn, write something eye-opening and profound.” I then proceeded to scroll… Continue reading Faith Over Fear

I Am Not My Parents’ Divorce

I can recount every detail about the day I found out my parents were “not going to be together anymore.” I was sweaty-faced and my tangly hair was somewhat pulled back in a scrunchie.  I had on my favorite Limited Too t-shirt with a cool astronaut chick on the front with some Old Navy blue jeans shorts.
