ALL ABOUT US
Hello, My name is Ashley Antonacci-Martini and I am married since 2012 to the love of my life, my best friend Anthony Martini. Fortunately, I have had the pleasure of building a life together with this man I call my forever for the past twenty years. We are high school sweethearts. He is my first, my last, and my everything. We have three children and a menagerie of pets. We are both graduates of Long Island University: CW Post Campus. My background being in biology/education and his in the criminal justice field.
We have served our community in various ways throughout the years. I have dedicated my time working/volunteering as an emergency medical technician and school teacher for many years before I was a mother. I have also served my church/community over the years by being part of the worship team, Sunday school teacher, Vacation Bible School crew leader, World Vision partner/ child sponsor, supporter of Samaritan’s Purse, ministry partner with a pregnancy prayer group, Christian newsletter writer, and currently an American Heritage Girls (Christian scouting group) volunteer. I became a commended minister in 2023 with Christian Leaders Alliance. This has helped me to begin my online ministry work as @ A Minister’s Journey on various social media platforms and write my first devotional book.
Anthony has also served his community well over the years. He was a volunteer firefighter/emergency medical technician for many years before becoming a dad and starting his career in public service as a public safety officer. His diligence and faith in God has advanced him very well in his career. He also had the honor of obtaining an Eagle Scout status through Boy Scouts of America when he was growing up. He also currently serves the church as an usher.
WHEN GOD FOUND US
We were raised Catholic but we never really had a chance to get build a strong relationship with God. It all began with our desire to have children. Our faith was really catapulted when we became pregnant with our first child. Something that we thought was going to be easy happened to be quite a struggle. Unfortunately, we didn’t understand how to seek out the Lord like we do now. However, with the little prayers we knew, we prayed for that child and prayed the Lord would find us a church to call home so we could raise her in the right way of the Lord. Of course God delivered and shortly after she was born we had a Christian church to call home. We pioneered our way through it all. We had finally began to learn what it meant for Jesus to be the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). It was refreshing to come to learn of a loving and forgiving God. After almost a decade of struggle to conceive our three children, God has called us to help other couples praying for the fruits of their womb and any other areas they may need prayer in.
We just cannot stop talking about God and His goodness wherever we go. Being a homeschool family allows us much more freedom to travel and practice our Christian beliefs. We often find ourselves ministering to others in our travels with our RV to all different places in the United States. We also are a part of many different Christian homeschool communities where we often get together and discuss God’s guidance in our lives.
Often times, we love to witness to our family and friends about the goodness of God in our own lives in hopes they too will get to know God. Being hospitable is our pleasure and specialty. We enjoy opening our home and kitchen to family and friends. We often host celebrations, cook a good meal, and always offer a cozy place to sleep. You can often catch us bringing out the karaoke machine and singing Christian worship music too. We absolutely enjoy serving others in our lives. This often leads to more opportunities to have Godly conversations. We also love to intercede and offer prayer to anyone who needs it in the midst of it all.
OUR CALLING TO A SOUL CENTER
Because of our frequent traveling and recent moving, we are a part of so many wonderful church communities. However, we wish to have a ministry in our home to call our own. We are part of CenterPoint Church, East Gate Church, and Christ Church. Because we do not come from a ministry background in our family, we our pioneering this journey all the way. We hope to reach the lives of many people and preach the gospel.
I am so grateful to God that the Holy Spirit and Christian Leaders Institute has equipped me for this journey into ministry and creating a soul center. The best part is I get to do it with my hubby, my best friend, by my side. May God be our guide!
