My name is Ashley. I’m 30 years old.
I like cultivate a healthy spiritual life. This is mainly what this blog will be about. I’m obsessed with Cinderella and God has told me many wonderful things about Himself through this story. I also glean things from other stories. God is the master of storytelling and therefore, I believe, He has poured a little bit of Himself into each of our stories, epics, and myths.
I am by no means an expert in literature. My degree is in mathematics after all. But if I had a chance to get a second degree, it would definitely be in literature. I got a little bit into studying literature when I started watching Doctor Who and participated in online discussions. I learned about symbolism and mirroring and other things.
In this blog, you may see a hint of some other authors. My favorite author is John Crowder (The New Mystics, Cosmos Reborn). His teachings have transformed the way I think about the Gospel and Jesus. You might also see some Dr. Steve McVey, C.S. Lewis, St. Theresa of Avila, Brother Lawrence, and others. Through them, I see a loving God who was glad to sacrifice Himself for us, not just someone willing to tolerate us or someone barely containing their rage against us.
My prayer is that someone is touched by what I write. That it gives someone something to chew on and generates discussion (not debate). If not, that is okay too. This blog has to be about me first and everyone else second. This blog is mainly a place to store my God thoughts and is a little more readable than Facebook statuses.
