Hello Everyone! I am officially welcoming all of you faithful followers back to Ask Ashton. It’s been a long time since we talked and I’m really glad you’re all still here after such a long hiatus. Sometimes its necessary to step away and refocus, regroup and plot a new course. I am glad I took that time because my desire is to be a true asset to my readers and add to your lives in a tangible way. After searching my heart for what moves me the most and reviewing the themes of our most common questions — one thing stood out boldly. Women are honestly looking for healthy relationships and want to enjoy marriages that are rewarding and fulfilling. It is a simple thing, but simple does not equal easy by any means.
There can be a million reasons why we do not experience this reality, and there are just as many explanations for why we end up in our specific life situation. However, the wonderful thing is that we can all have the healthy relationships we want. There is a path to get from where we are to where we want to be. There will be work. There will be challenges. There will be rewards. The most encouraging truth is that we get out of our relationships what we put into them, and most of the time it only takes a few changes in how we think and act to get on the right track.
So, I look forward to this new journey as we focus on developing the strong, healthy, loving marriages we have dreamed about. Much of that comes in the form of preparation before marriage, and we will talk a lot about that. Even more comes from growth and change within marriage, and we will definitely talk a lot about that too. A new series will be introduced in the next post, so keep a look out and let’s talk soon!
