The Many Faces of Ashely Marsh
Here we are at a homeschool conference that CCI hosted. Ashely is a veteran homeschooling mom and has graduated at least one of her children. One down, two to go.
Many people may not know that Ashely is very playful and lots of fun to be around. Here she is planting a big fat kiss on Susan!
She also gives out hugs regularly but usually to people that she can tell needs one.
She also knows how to have a good time at a party and is not afraid to "steal" a gift that she likes at our annual Ladies Nite ornament party.
This is one of my favorite pics. John, Ashely and Nelson are on the Sea of Galilee in Israel. Another thing that makes this pic so sweet is that Ashely is very pregnant with their second son Joshua. Doesn't she look fabulous!
OKAY this is another favorite pic because here she is enjoying the fruit of her homeschooling labor by presenting to Nelson his diploma at the Graduation Celebration we had in 2009.
THANK YOU ASHELY FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT FRIEND AND MENTOR TO US ALL! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Who Are "We"?
The original girlfriends started with one. One who wanted to follow after God with all her heart and who wanted to know from God what it meant to be His daughter whose worth is far above rubies. She could see the lie that promotes self-esteem and learned that each of us has a Christ-esteem which makes our worth far above rubies.
As she learned what it meant to be totally loved, totally accepted, and totally wanted by Him she began to give what she had been given. She first began pouring her life into one, two, then three, then four, five, six, then seven and eight. Then one by one these eight began to catch the vision and they began pouring their lives into one, two, then three and like Topsy in Uncle Tom's Cabin it "just grew and grew".
So, here we are. Who are "we"? You'll meet us. A wonderful, beautiful group of women both young and old, married and single who have been given much and want to give back what someone, through Christ, has given to them. Catch the vision and join us. Sit back and be encouraged, valued and accepted.
