The Beginning

I thought I should start out this blog by introducing myself and my goals in the future.
I am Ashley. I grew up in Utah and have been raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised by my step-paternal grandparents with no siblings. Most of my family were at one time LDS, but almost all are now inactive. In my teenage years I strayed from my faith. I had to find myself and in the past 2 years, I have began to grow my testimony once again.
My husband of 2 years is Dustin. He is such a fun person and loves anything in the outdoors. We weren't married in the temple, which wasn't a goal of ours at the time. He is still not interested in joining me at church but I try not to let it affect our relationship. You can't push anyone and I will not at anytime in the future. He is a great man, father and husband and I love him SO much!
We have one son- Ryker. He is 1 year old and the funniest, best kid in the world. He hates sitting still, so church and Sacrament meeting are a real task. He loves to sing songs, give hugs and kisses, try to walk and get into mischief.
This blog is a documentation of my personal journey through raising a family, building a house and building my testimony. Come join me as I build a house unto the Lord...a house upon a rock.
