Remembering Him When Life Hits the Fan
People fall away from their faith for many different reasons – moving away from home, lack of community, sin, peer or family pressure, apathy, and most often when life seems to be hitting the fan. In this presentation, Ashley draws parallels between the Israelites in Exodus and our lives and offers tools that help fight the fear of suffering and remember how God has fought for us in the past to have hope that He is, that He will.
*This talk can be given as a stand-alone talk or over a series of up to four talks in a conference or retreat setting.
“Ashley moved us all to tears as she beautifully weaved Jesus into so many parts of her story. We were all inspired to rely more fully on God, even in the very hard times.”
Rhonda Litt – Magnificat
“Ashley’s story powerfully resonated how the love of the Father can carry us, even when you think God is absent. Her faith and spirit of surrender inspired us all, ‘If she can do it, maybe I can too…’”
Patty Marmie – Women’s Group
For Better or For Worse
Finding true, faithful relationships has sadly become the exception to the norm. In this talk, Ashley covers why commitment is so attacked, how to truly evaluate your relationship to discern the next step, and how matrimonial faithfulness is such a beautiful reminder of our worth.
“We were inspired by the role Ashley’s fiancé played in bringing hope and unfailing love to a tragic situation. Anyone who has experienced a cross in their relationships will be inspired by their story!”
Becky Deaver – Go Forth With Heather and Becky Podcast
“Ashley’s story spoke to the power of family and of true, self-sacrificing love. All college students, newlyweds, and marriage retreats need to hear it.”
Natalie Gifford – Mom’s Group
Standing With the Suffering
Despite 24/7 media onslaught, the lack of being present, comparison, and auto-pilot living lead to many of us feeling alone. In this talk, Ashley shares the importance of community and six ways to stand with the suffering by reflecting on how people stood with her.
“Ashley’s story is a powerful witness to charity, hope and the unity of Christ’s body. When Ashley was suffering, all the members suffered with her, reminding her that our value as children of God does not diminish because of hardship.”
Bishop James Conley – Bishop of Lincoln
“Our Godteens were inspired by Ashley’s talk on ways to lift each other up and that reaching out and sharing their faith isn’t as scary as it seems.”
