My name is Ashton Marsh. I am currently a senior at Texas A&M University, and plan to graduate in 2016 with a degree in Sociology and a double minor in Anthropology and Psychology.
I am currently a figure skating coach, and have figure skated for the past 17 years of my life. Recently, I started Ashton’s Angels in order to help those who cannot afford prosthetics.
When I was four years old I was involved in an accident that resulted in losing part of my left foot. As a child I knew this was going to change my life, but I also knew that God chose me to live a different life. He chose me to live a life for him!
Today I am honored to share with you my story.
God has placed some of the most amazing people in my life, and now he is giving me the opportunity to help others. In Jeremiah 29:11 it says, “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This verse has really impacted me throughout my life and has always given me hope that God is directing my path. I am so beyond thankful for this opportunity to start Ashton’s Angels, and to watch God continually bless this non-profit!
