Ashro Woman: Lucy H.

Meet Lucy from Houston Texas

If you’re looking for some fried cabbage and encouragement, meet Lucy! This beautiful lady advises us to “Never let the opinions of others determine who you are.” She visits the sick and elderly all dressed up in Ashro, “They love it!”

Now retired, Lucy spends her time volunteering, taking care of 7 dogs, writing, growing plants—and talking to people from all walks of life. Her biggest struggle has been coming down with Fibromyalgia alone. “I made it by His Grace.”

Her biggest influence? “My aunt! My aunt became my mother when I was 18 months old. I was her only child by adoption! She taught me to pray from childhood. I watched her work so hard to take care of me. She never had a day off. She never complained even when I knew she was exhausted!…I will never for get her love and encouraging words.”

Lucy is now a grandmother. “Motherhood taught me what real unconditional love was. Being a grandmother taught me that granddaughters will put eyelashes on you when you nap lol.”
