Sparkles by Ashlee: faith, funny, + fulfilling dreams

 

Sparkles by Ashlee is about knowing Jesus. I'm Ashlee Mae, a Christian. I'm passionate about my faith because Jesus was pretty passionate about me when he died for me on the cross.

I've loved words and stories for a long time, and I combine my faith with them. I dream to publish Christian fictional books. I also started this blog and have grown it into a brand. I help you fulfill your own dreams and follow God's will, all the while having deep life talks and funny moments. Don't let the pink and sparkles blind you!

Sparkles by Ashlee is faith. I'm here to share the hope the Lord offers us. Sparkles in my blog represents the hope of the Lord, and I'm trying to share that hope. I am a sinner just like you; I'm just trying to learn more about God and remain closer to Him in this messy world. If I can be a light along the way, that is why I do this. I share my journey of living for God and always keep it real.

Sparkles by Ashlee is funny. I like to keep it real; I like to be funny. I am going to be blogging about some heavy things sometimes, but I promise to leave you with hope. There is hope for this life, and I want to share it. All glory goes to God for everything.

Sparkles by Ashlee is fulfilling dreams. I may be young, but I have a lot of dreams. I'm serious about them too. I know God has a plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11), and I trust Him completely. Nothing is too hard for God (Jeremiah 32:27). I love to write, and I dream to publish Christian fictional books. I blogged about finishing my first novel here. I blog a lot about my writing and dreams, and I'm here to encourage you in your dreams, too, because I'm learning a lot about the true ways to live a joyful life and fulfill your dreams. The culture won’t tell you the true way to be joyful. And even though there may be challenges along the way, it’s worth it.

I'm Ashlee Staerk, the writer behind this Christian blog! Sparkles in my blog represent the hope of Jesus Christ, the light through Him (Matthew 5:16), and that is what I want my blog to be, giving you the hope which can only come through Jesus.

I've loved words and stories for a long time, and I combine my faith with them. I dream to publish Christian fictional books. I’ve completed one novel already. I also started this blog in the meantime, a way for me to document what God is teaching me and what I’ve learned through my trials, waiting, triumphs, and everything else. God has taught me so much, and I praise Him for growth! I give Him the glory through all of this. My goal is to help you fulfill your own dreams and follow God's will, all the while having deep life talks and funny moments. Life is about Jesus (John 14:6), and life is only rich with Jesus at the center (John 6:35; 10:10). So, above all, I want to share him. Don't let the pink and sparkles blind you!

Faith

I share my journey of living for God and always keep it real; I won't sugarcoat the Bible but will always share its truth, no matter if it offends. My mission is simple: to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19). You can read all about my mission here.

Funny

I like to keep it real; I like to be funny. There is plenty of funny in this life, especially in the little things. I am going to be blogging about some heavy things sometimes, but I promise to leave you with hope. After all, 1 Thessalonians 5:16 says to "rejoice always." See my resources page here.

Fulfilling Dreams

I may be young, but I have a lot of dreams. I'm serious about them too. I know God has a plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11), and I trust Him completely. Nothing is too hard for God (Jeremiah 32:27). So dream big. Keep God at the center always. I love telling others about the only successful and best way to fulfill your dreams: through God. God cares about your dreams, and His dreams for you are always bigger and better than yours. Read my story here.
