My Testimony – short version.

I’ve been a Christian my entire life. Yet, ’08 and ’14 were pivotal years of re-committing my life back to the Lord. I’ve learned that happiness, contentment, purpose and identity is solely found in Christ. I’ve never looked back. He is faithful.

Hello,

My name is Emily Aspinall and I am the blogger and podcast host behind The Blazed Trail.

I am a wife to Landon (since 05-27-16) and a full-time mother to Lyla Wren (since 09-12-18). Born and raised in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada. My husband was born and raised in Moose Jaw, SK, Canada. Both very Canadian named cities I might add… #proud.
I gave my heart to Jesus at around four years of age while growing up in a Christian family with my older sister.
I dream a lot, and more often than not I ask God to help me interpret it. I’ve always been fascinated by dreams and how God uses them to speak to us.
I grew up playing competitive basketball and received a scholarship to play for Trinity Western University (2007-08, 10-2013). During which, after my first year, I quit to do YWAM. I was part of the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland Australia and did The Summer of Sport in Lakeside, Montana, USA. After completing a year of YWAM I continued with my basketball scholarship and finished my BA degree.
I’ve always been passionate about ministry… what is it, really? I often asked myself. Alongside obedience to God and vulnerability to share, this blog is a start.

Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

1 John 2:6
