Favorite music group/artist?
Casting Crowns

What country would you like to visit someday?
Well, I would of instantly said China but now I am not so sure because a couple months ago a friend said that almost everyone in China is rude, haha. So I would choose Africa at the moment.

Current favorite Bible verse?

"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
-Romans 8:38&39

How many pairs of cowboy boots do you have? ;)

Haha, I used to have three pairs, but I gave one pair to Paige so now I have two. :)

Favorite book?

Besides the Bible, I love (and sorry I couldn't narrow it down to just one) the Violet Travilla books from the "A Life of Faith" series, the Christian Heroes: Then and Now series of missionary books, and most of Ray Comforts books. 

Would you rather: sit by the fire and read a good book, or take a walk in the sunshine?

Take a walk in the sunshine.

What are some tips you can give on modesty?

First off, I have learned from a bad experience to always try on clothes/examine yourself in a mirror before you buy them/wear them out! Often I will gather up a stack of clothes that all look like they will be perfect. After trying them on in the dressing room I come out with a handful of what was actually okay. I try to have my shirts be loose enough that I can grab a handful of the front. If I can't then it is usually too tight.

This may be old to everyone except for me. But I just made a realization not that long ago through the example of a couple friends of mine. When you bend over you can casually put your hand on your chest to keep your neckline closed. Or you can do more of a squat instead of bend over.

Lastly I just want to share a little about how much more important a modest spirit is over dressing modestly. I have known girls who wear cape dresses and they are completely immodest because of what is in their heart. They have an immodest spirit about them. I have known girls who some may call immodest, but they have a true desire for modesty in their heart. Their sweet spirit of modesty makes them more modest than the girl in the cape dress in my opinion. It truly matters what is in the heart first when it comes to modesty.

What is your favorite state(that you have been to)?


What is your favorite song?

By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North

What is your favorite animal?

Domesticated: horses/Wild: white tigers

How are your horses and what are you doing with them now? ;)
Our horses are doing great! I am about to send my horse, Cochise off to a trainer friend for two weeks. Once I get him back I plan on diligently riding him as much as possible and keeping up with his training. If I keep having problems with him I will be selling him and looking for a horse more suitable for my needs. :(

How many tornadoes have you had there this year so far?
Hmm, a few. One hit while my parents were at Walmart one day. I was at work and Dylan was home with the rest of the children. Everybody crowded into the back of Walmart and Mom called Dylan to tell him to take everyone at home to the neighbor's basement. I was taking care of an elderly lady who wouldn't of been able to go to the basement if the tornado came our way. That was all kind of a scary situation.

Have you ridden your horses lately?

No, I have been really bad with riding, sadly and unfortunately.

Do you have a computer or are you writing all this on your new phone?
I have been using the computers at the library/college. BUT, we DID just get a new lap top, yay!

What is your favorite flower?

Do you prefer Dodge or Chevy?
Chevy all da way! :)


  1. Enjoyed reading your answers, Ashley! Interesting that you should pick China or Africa. Africa is about the last place in the world I'd want to go (Well, I wouldn't want to go to Antarctica either), so I wonder why you made that choice.

    Romans 8:38-39 are wonderful verses. When I was learning Spanish, I memorized them in that language.

    The tornado sounds pretty scary! Glad everyone is ok.

    1. I still think that I would really like to go to China even if there are rude people. I want to see the Great Wall and other fascinating things there. I pick Africa because I want to hug the little chocolate colored children, see wild animals that are free from a jeep, and I really do hope to climb Mount Kilimanjaro one day... I know someone who has and he said that there is no other way to describe it than it being a spiritual experience. What is the first country you would pick to go to?

  2. Fun reading this...even though I knew all of it! :p :)

  3. Thats too bad you're having problems with your horse. :( It was fun reading your answers and getting to know you more!

  4. Just listened to 'by your side' on YouTube. LOVE that song!! -Riley
