What's new with Ashleigh?

Have you ever felt like God (or the fates or whatever higher power you believe in) is pushing you in a certain direction? That has happened to me so many times in my life. It happened again yesterday (which is why this newsletter is a day late.)

Back in 2007, when I first applied for a teaching position, I sent my resume to a dozen school districts and a ton of private schools. I was so excited to have my own classroom. I was still student teaching, but I would be graduating soon.

One day, my father called while I was still at work. During a free period, I went to the AP Environmental lab and returned his call. I figured something must be wrong if he were calling me during the school day.

At the time, my father owned his own business, so his name was easily googleable. A school saw my resume and was interested in hiring me. But I had forgotten to put my phone number on the resume! This school wanted me so badly, they tracked down my father and found me.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering why I feel this was God’s hand, it was a parochial school.

Now that I’m again applying for teaching positions, I remembered to put my phone number on my resumes. Yesterday, I again felt God’s hand at work. A school I applied to last week called me. The principal even said that he usually emails, but something told him he should call me instead. I am going to save the rest of the story for next week, but let’s just say I have an interview this week and I really want this job.

How about you?

Have you ever felt God's hand in your life?

Complex Solutions

Complex Solutions

Math is easy for Lexi, but complex emotions are difficult, and A.P. Calculus won’t help her overcome guilt, fear, or self-destructive behavior.

Sixteen-year-old Lexi Thompson believes she should’ve died in the car accident that took her parents. Now she slices her guilt into her skin, aggravating an already dangerous cutting habit. When Lexi is contacted about her parents’ lost proof of a famous math theorem, her guilt over her parents’ deaths intensifies. Math was her parents’ passion as well as her own.

Lexi enlists her friend and fellow math whiz, Joe to help find the proof. As their relationship deepens, Lexi struggles to keep her self-harm secret. Further, she realizes she’s not the only one interested in her parents’ proof. A mysterious man hangs around her parents’ vacant home and lurks in the woods where she runs with her dog. The stalker’s presence exacerbates her anxiety, along with the frequency and severity of her cutting. The more she tries to conceal her self-harm, the more she pulls away from Joe and from finding the proof.

If she can’t let go of her fear and open up to Joe, she may lose him as well as the proof to a man who’s intent on stealing her parents’ legacy.
