Be kind, for everyone you know is fighting a hard battle and every second we are creating our story.

To the 1 and 3 women, and to the men that are victims of sexual violence @nfinitestrength and I hope you know are not alone. Every 6.2 minutes sexual assault occurs in the U.S. It is predicted that 1 in 3 women in the US are victims of sexual violence. @nfinitestrength retail sales stands for the infinite strength we believe survivors and victims have. @nfinitestrength partners with the Bay Area Women and Rape (BAWAR) and Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) to lead classes on college campuses and our communities to bring awareness and open up conversations about the issue of sexual violence. To learn more visit “BAWAR” to bring awareness in local communities or if you want to help national resources I want to point you to “RAINN” Also make sure to follow @nfinitestrength on Instagram.
Thank you Quad Cities for letting me come out and tear up your turf for a few days. This picture makes me look like I know what I am doing which doesn't happen I posted it. @johndeereclassic #golf photo cred: @jrhowell1
Sometimes I get lucky...wait for it...wait for it...for the win! #johndeereclassic
*(Sorry for posting again but I deleted this earlier on accident)* For the past several months I have made a commitment as a monthly donor to support @humanityandhope and the people they serve (like Jose Luis in this picture) in Honduras through creating sustainable jobs. Jose Luis is a project manager in La Coroza and I've had the opportunity to work alongside him for the last few years. I've learned what his life is like and his dream to create a brighter future for the next generation. He knows exactly what it's like to be in a place where you hold onto hope and now he gets to #bethelight for everyone around him in the village he serves. (Check out @humanityandhope post today). . . Today I ask you to join me and the #HOPEBETHELIGHT campaign. The challenge is to give up something this month (or every month): This could look different for everyone. Maybe it's caffeine, chocolate, eating fast food, gym membership, a hobby such as golf, or something that feels uncomfortable living without - whatever you decide, make a pledge by visiting and know that the comfort you sacrifice is making a difference in someone's life. Share with H&H how you will "Be the Light" by using #HOPEBETHELIGHT and tagging them in a post. I look forward to seeing the light and goodness shine in all of you! #hopesquad #learngrowprosper #endlesslove

Our official blog, @mahoganyworkplacecreative , is live (link in profile) after many months of work!

Please check it out and offer feedback. My friends and I look forward to writing many more posts for years to come!

Interested in hearing my parents talk about how they "spiced" up their relationship? Well I am not, but lucky for you they talk about it in this weeks "Almost Famous" podcast (link in bio)! As always, thanks for listening!
Whoever came up with the idea of Monday charity golf tournaments... I thank you. Boys Hope Girls Hope event today, I can't think of many things I would rather be doing on a Monday. #mondayblues??

In July my mom and I are leading a trip to Honduras with @humanityandhope and 25 volunteers. If you personally are interested in going on a trip to build relationships with people in Honduras contact @humanityandhope today. If you are unable to join a trip then helping out through donations or volunteering is just as beneficial! To help, check out the link in my profile.
You are going to hurt somebody, you are going to hurt somebody deeply. But, I will not be one of those people. I cannot focus on the negative comments or indecently hateful words being said about me or my relationship even though they do sting. I do know great people that I care about deeply that comments and criticisms have affected and as a result I wanted to share my words. A small minority of people (at least I will continue to believe it is a small minority) want to see people suffer or fail. Personally, my basis for judging myself is simple, if I do something that doesn’t represent Christ then I will listen to the opinions and words from family and friends who know me best and love me. I do desire (by the direction of family and peers) to become a better person daily. I know some will not agree with my intentions but in all things my pursuit is to represent Christ better. With that, I will once again clearly tell you I AM NOT PERFECT as none of us are and I have never claimed to be. I do desire to show love in all situations (do I always do that? No, I fail often). To be clear, not that this should be a surprise, but this podcast is a professional decision I have made to enhance my life and career. I still have a full time job. I am still running Generous Coffee company. I still have a blog. I am still actively involved in @humanityandhope. And now, because I was given the opportunity, I have added a podcast with a friend and a great company ( @iheartradio) to talk about life (and I love to talk). The last few months have not gone the way I would have preferred. My relationships have changed drastically and what I envisioned my life was going to be has been redirected. It is sad, but it is nothing you should feel sorry for me about, life happens both the good and bad. With this, what do you think I should do now? For all of you that have given me advice let me give you some from my heart. Love as hard as you can (even to strangers). Ask yourself what life is about and pursue your conclusion with passion. When a good opportunity comes your way that fits your desires take it, because life is short but a lot more fun when you are doing something you enjoy.
Episode 2 is up on ITunes (link in my bio). We discuss who Ashley went on a "friend" date with...or was it a real date? We also talk with @luke__pell about living up to unrealistic expectations. #iheartradio
In my eyes this looks like a guy down for a good time... #memorialdayweekend
