This blog is written by Ashley McCargo. I am a Family Nurse Practitioner living in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with my husband and two teenage sons. My educational background started with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Law Studies from Marquette University. After deciding that law enforcement was not the path for me, I decided to apply my aptitude for investigation to a career in healthcare. I earned a Bachelor of Nursing from the University of Central Oklahoma followed by a Master of Nursing from the University of South Alabama. One of my favorite parts of being a Nurse Practitioner is when I get a challenging case that requires me to research, investigate, and think outside the box to determine the diagnosis. Another aspect that I love is being able to educate my patients and share my knowledge with them so they can better care for themselves. So here I am doing the same thing again. Using both my love of analysis and my love of educating and applying it to something else I am passionate about… Jesus.
Although I born into the Christian faith, I have struggled with anxiety, depression, and questions about the Christian faith throughout my life. I found myself called to direct my love of research towards finding and understanding the spiritual truths contained in the Bible. In doing so I not only found my answers but a peace I had never known. This blog is written to explore questions about Christianity and life. The only way we will ever know the truth is through careful reading and application of God’s word.
