We are on week three of our Faith & Marriage Series here on Hearts & Stripes podcast.  Today we have the pleasure to speak with Ashley Ashcraft, author of Stop Being A __ Wife.  Her book walks spouses through a 40 day challenge that unveils the wife that you were created to be.  Lean in as we hear her story of going from unbeliever to surrendered to the love of Jesus Christ and how she practiced fasting in a different way to completely shift her marriage relationship.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Suggested reading to prepare for a deployment season and reintegration: When War Comes Home by Chris Adsit  
  • Encouragement to seek out a Christian Counselor to process your feelings, challenges and struggles.
  • What if the "problem" in your relationship isn't your spouse, but it's you?
  • Fasting from a behavior or attitude can change your relationship in 40 days.


More on Ashley:

I am a former high school English teacher, enjoying the blessing (and utter craziness) of being a stay-at-home and homeschooling mom. My husband, Tim, is an Apache helicopter pilot in the Army. Tim and I met in high school English class and married after college. Our twelve years in the military have found us stationed at Ft. Rucker, AL; Ft. Hood, TX; Ft. Bliss, TX; West Point, NY; and Ft. Leavenworth, KS. Currently, we are stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. We have three children--a strong-willed and kind-hearted daughter named Adeline; our sweet adrenaline-seeker, Lincoln; and our joyful and humorous, Isla.  With our transient lifestyle and all the unknowns that the Army hands us, our faith in Christ keeps us grounded and able to handle whatever comes our way, trusting in God's plan for our family.
