Sparkles by Ashlee: faith, funny, + fulfilling dreams

Welcome to Sparkles by Ashlee, a Christian lifestyle blog over faith, funny, and fulfilling dreams. I'm Ashlee Staerk, and I'm a teenager in love with Jesus and writing stories for His glory in Iowa. Grab your fave drink (I'll take a Dr. Pepper), and peruse my blog, where I document what God is teaching me, encouragement He lays on my heart, the good and the bad in life (always keeping it real), and my journey of trusting God with my dreams!

Faith is the center of this blog. I want others to be encouraged, but the only real, genuine way for me to do that is to tell you about Jesus. I'm not one of those worldly motivation blogs that just leaves God out. Nope. Plus, I like keeping it real. I don't ever mean to offend anyone. I know some of my posts may be pretty blunt, but if you find a problem with that, I don't mind constructive (nice) criticism, but otherwise, please just leave my blog. Thanks.

Otherwise, I present to you the best posts of my blog: the real, genuine, and deep posts. Without God, this life is pointless. Let's dive in to this messy but beautiful life together. Let's get real and have some good talks.
