Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


A Work of Art

Each one she paints is an original. No two are exactly the same. All come from inside the heart of a big sister and that makes them all the more beautiful to me. She has a song in her heart this morning and a smile on her face knowing that she is doing something to make a difference. I feel so very blessed as I watch this beautiful girl create her masterpieces.

Several of you have indicated you would like to have one. We are so happy to get them to you. Allie has a list of your names and she will be completing your paintings by the end of the week. I plan on having them in the mail to those of you who are not local on Saturday. She refuses to set a price and more than anything just wants you to remember to pray for Ash each time you look at it. Feel free to send whatever God lays on your heart and if you would just like to have one as a reminder to pray but cannot give an offering that is fine with her as well.

Here is our list of recipients. If your name is not on the list then just leave us a request and she will be happy to add you. If you are on the list and have not given us an e-mail or a way to contact you then I will place an asterisk at the end of your name. Thanks for loving Ash so much and for appreciating her big sister's artwork.

Ash is feeling yucky today and has been throwing up since 6:00 this morning. I'm not sure whats up with her, but I am waiting to see her lab results. Dave said, "Maybe this is just a "normal" childhood thing this time." Wouldn't that be nice? Normal. Anyway, were hoping it passes soon and she is up to be ornery again by this evening. Hope you all have a great day. Trish

I'd love to be added to the list of those getting an "Allie original." Would you send me an email, so I can get you my contact information?

Thanks! :)

Be sure and let Allie know that Grandma and Greypa want to be sure and get their copy, also. We love those beautiful girls with all our hearts and that awesome boy, too! Much love to you all, Grandma

I was just wondering if Allie is going to sign and date the painting? I think that would be neat.
Just email me at for mailing address.
Sorry to hear Ashley has been sick today and pray she will be much better tomorrow.
Love to all~~~Janiece

I haven't posted before, but faithfully read up on Ashley and your family each week while at work. You and your family have been an inspiration to me. I would love to have one of Allie's paintings as a reminder to me of God's saving grace. Please email me at

I loved "Waves of Grace" as soon as I saw it. I would absolutely love one if you can manage when you come to Omaha. I guess this budding artist will be quite busy with all the requests! My phone is 402-598-7412 and email is

I was touched by the feelings you have about coming to Omaha and the emotions that are relived. Give me a call when you are here and I would love to help in any way I can (food, pray with you, a hug, whatever). OR maybe I can show you wedding photos!
