Welcome to my little corner of the (online) world!
I’m Ashley, and my job here at Always Anchored is to write. I spent entirely too much time starting and stalling out on novel-writing. I’ve finally admitted that blog posts are more my style!
By training I am an interior designer, but my day job (until May 2018) was that of a middle grades educator. I am a wife, mama, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.
I am also an ovarian cancer survivor, a role which opened my eyes to a new vernacular and a surprising set of activities that I never imagined would apply to me. You can learn more about this journey here. From the beginning, it has been important to me that “cancer patient” not be my identity.
Because my identity is in Christ! I am a daughter of the King, and my citizenship is in heaven (not the infusion center, or even the classroom). While many of my posts for the next couple months will often brush up against the topic of cancer, the goal of each word is to draw attention to the King and His Kingdom–not the author of the post.
If you have questions, feel free to peek at the “contact” page. I’d love to hear from you!
P.S. — Wondering where the name Always Anchored came from? Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor is one of my favorite modern hymns, and it carried me through the darkest valleys during my cancer storm. The name serves as a constant reminder that I am always anchored in the One Who is steadfast in all things. If you’ve never heard the song, listen here!
