Thank you for being here and taking the time out to get to know a little more about who I am and what I do. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, creative entrepreneur and a flawed woman who fell in love with Jesus and decided to walk in the freedom of my forgiveness, take up my cross follow Him and His plan for my life. Which led to me sharing the gospel, freelancing, living and loving my life by His design (it hasn't been easy but it's been worth it!) (more on my truth here).
My absolute favorite things are hanging with the humans you see in the picture reading, eating great food, drinking great coffee and creating and helping others create.
This site is dedicated to that and sharing the journey with you. Thanks for meeting me for coffee.
SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO KNOW:
Before coming into the knowledge of the truth I was someone who was lost in the world I didn't think or know God had a purpose for my life, I had no one pouring into me and was totally clueless that God had my little life all planned out. I was going about life the best way I knew how (the struggle was real) and it wasn't until I found out about the love God had for me and the price Christ paid for me that I really began to live and love. I also realized that I had a choice to make. Did I want to continue living the life I was living (the turn up was also real) or did I want a life in Christ (the chance to really live). So I choose life in Christ and really began to live a life of passion and pursuit. I am in pursuit like many of you to know Christ and to make him known. I am not a theologian, I do not know everything, But I do know Jesus said:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
So I want to encourage my generation and generations to come to CHOOSE LIFE (Christ is Life) and pursue walking in your purpose, our passions are tied to our purpose. We're all created to do something in the earth now that will impact eternity.
For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them...
(Romans 12:3-6 NKJV)
We've all been gifted in different areas, there is so much to do and God being all awesome and stuff knew He needed us to all be different to help Him in getting thing's done. But it's totally up to us to hone and utilize those gifts. Know that no matter what skill set, talent, or ability you have know that it's a gift from God. Yes YOU are gifted! No matter what field you may work in I want you to know it plays apart in your purpose which will impact eternity in some way! This is why I believe the Christian walk is a constant pursuit, we must be willing to be open to growing and learning daily aka "Be in Constant Pursuit".
A relationship with Christ is the only way to find out what your purpose is and I am here to help you on the journey of passion, pursuit and purpose. I aspire to inspire you to BLOOM into the person God has called you to be! This site is dedicated to all the things in which I am passionate about! The biggest being the sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As cliche as it may sound know that if he did it for me, he will do it for you! My prayers are that you are inspired through my writings, musing's, quotes, pictures, and resources to get in pursuit of Christ to know Him and make Him known. It is time start living the life you were created to live in Christ, a very high price was paid! Jesus Christ is the only way to live that life!
Jesus said: I have come that they (YOU) may have life, and that they (YOU) may have it more abundantly. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep (YOU AND I WHO BELIEVE)" (John 10:10-11 NKJV)
Do you want a life of freedom, strength, courage, love, passion, purpose and so much more? If so I encourage you to seek God on your own but know that you aren't in pursuit alone explore the site ask questions, comment, connect, with me (I'm still in pursuit and learning myself) let's grow in Christ, Life and so much more together! I pray that you are inspired to START: Going, Doing and Being all that God has called you to be and to walk in your purpose.
Be blessed and BLOOM!
Love, Ashli Brown
