Ashro Woman: Mary B.

Meet Ashro Woman of the Week MARY from Woodlyn, PA!

Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Mary from Woodlyn, PA!

Mary makes a mean potato salad and, like many of us, loves to dress up for church and date night. Dresses and Afrocentric clothes are her particular favorite. When we asked her for her best advice, this is what she had for us: “Success is in your hand. Follow God’s plan.”

For Mary, faith in God has helped her to move mountains and trust God for the impossible—like going back to college in her 40s. While her greatest struggle has been her health (Mary is currently disabled), she does not let this hold her back.

She is believing for her own foundation one day and spends her free time reading and writing prayers. She loves how her son keeps her laughing, “My son…is very funny,” and how kids can encourage her: “Being able to see children grow and achieve things they could not imagine [makes me happy]’. We couldn’t agree more!
