Hi! My name is Ashley Ryan and I have been teaching at GFA for going on 4 years. Before teaching at GFA, I was a preschool teacher for over 10 years. I have 3 kids: Jillian-11, Kyler-8 and Lydia-6 who also attend GFA. I have been married for 13 years to my husband whom I met in high school. I came to know the Lord when I was 12 and with vigorous prayer brought my parents to the Lord as well also. I’m an avid shopper of all things farmhouse décor, coffee is my love language and though I try to avoid the sweets, I’ll never turn down peanut butter M&M’s. I’m currently finishing up classes and transferring to GCU in the Spring to finish up my BA in Elementary Education. I have such a heart for working with kids and have been very blessed with the opportunity to work here at Grace. GFA has been instrumental in the spiritual growth I’ve seen in my kids and the love of the staff and students is undeniable. GFA really is the best place to be and it’s evident every day that God is in this place.
“I can do all things in Christ, who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13
