What an inspiration Feb 15, 2007
Ashley, I loved reading your book. Your story is compelling. I appreciate your honesty in sharing with us, the readers, what was going on in your mind during such a trying time. It's great to see how your faith in God helped keep you focused, even though you admit that your daily life wasn't completely on track the way you would have preferred. The most important lesson I believe your book leaves with the reader is that it isn't where you are in life that is most important, but the direction in which you are headed.
Good luck with your future, and that of your daughter.
Great read Jan 27, 2007
I couldn't put this book down! This book hasn't been promoted enough I don't think. I heard about it at work from someone reading it. The title is definately a good one for this book. Ashley's testimony is a great one to show how God really does work in your life.
It's real.... Jan 7, 2007
As we watched this event unfold on TV back in 2005, it was an amazing end to a very scary story.
Ashley's side of the story was something that I really wanted to hear from the moment the TV commentators started catching the news that Brian Nichols had been taken into custody and no one else was killed.
To me, the story shows what REAL Christianity is all about... broken people, failed people, looking up to a God who loves ALL of us, even in our failures, and provides the strength to deal with whatever comes our way, whenever we let Him.
I applaud Ashley for her openness about her human struggles, the drugs, the lifestyle, the drinking, etc. Through her failures God had prepared her heart to reach out to a man who was in very desperate need of someone who could lead him back to God.
It was an amazing story of God's grace. It shows true Christianity where Christ meant for it to be ... with sinners, in the trenches of failure... not in the hallowed halls of "religious" whited walls.
It's apparent from the story that Ashley and Brian ministered to one another. Ashley was able to get Brian to see his need to face the consequences of what he did. And in a crystal clear moment of potentially facing death, Brian was able to help Ashley see that facing mortality prioritizes life issues like nothing else!
This fascinating story showed that God IS REAL and that He is working in people's lives today. And you don't have to be some perfected "saint" for God to still love you, care for you, and use you as He miraculously works His way in someone's life.
I recommend this to anyone who really desires to see how God took broken, flawed human beings and looked down upon them with His grace.
