introduce yourself

I serve people who want to hear a little pick-me-up in their day or learn something new. People who are yearning for friendship, community, and a helping hand. People who struggle with unanswered questions, uncertainty, and their faith. Who wish they could jump over the many hurdles in their life, but feel like they can’t. Those who desire to have a safe place to go to learn and seek community and support. People who want to grow into better versions of themselves, and looking for the guidance to do so. I am happy to write for you and to speak into your hearts, guiding you to the life God has for you and encouraging you to never give up. 

I have always been most content when I am learning. Books and articles are my safe haven. It’s where I feel most at ease, where I get the most clarity and direction in life, where I feel like life is going to be okay. That’s why I’d like to dedicate my life to words and the effect they can have on others. And my favorite book in the world is actually quite a bestseller (the Bible). I read this book every day and it always teaches me something about this crazy life we live and the God that calls me His child. 

The things I am most passionate about in life are books, people, questions, words, Jesus, music, and the magic of Google. When I’m not busy working on this brand, you can catch me with my friends, on Google, or with my head tucked away in a book. 

I love serving the world by writing and speaking encouraging, life-giving words to others. I hope you guide you to learn and grow through life's biggest difficulties. I am all about being real, and I hope the words here can encourage you, help you learn something new, and be sunshine for your day! 

My passion is to connect life’s biggest questions with faith. I don’t believe that logic and spirituality are in separate cubbies, rather they complement each other. I also believe in the power of counsel, so I hope to equip you with the wisdom that you need to handle whatever you're walking through. 

I am an author, podcaster, virtual mentor, Googler, and people-person.


Hey there, I'm

Meet Ashley

Because after all, “Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” – Proverbs 16:24.

Through the grief of my parent’s divorce, I was able to experience God’s love for me all over again. I saw that He wasn’t just something I made time for on Sundays or in the mornings. He wasn’t a to-do list. He was a God who was with me in the trenches, helping me through every struggle and would always carry me to victory. 

So looking back to that vulnerable college girl walking through heartbreak, I want to serve that girl. The girl who doesn’t know who she is, so she puts on tons of different masks to fit in. Who is walking through her parent’s divorce and wondering if she will ever have a successful marriage of her own. The girl who wants a mentor to walk her through a difficult season, but doesn’t have one. The girl who craves a seat at a table because there isn’t one currently available to her. That’s who this is serving, that’s who I want these words to build up.

So that is this outlet: to guide you through life's biggest challenges, to get your biggest questions answered, to encourage you, and to show you how to live a life of fullness.

And I truly believe you are here for a reason. I am so happy to have you here with us, and I can’t wait to walk through this crazy journey of life together. 

I wrote my first story in 1st grade, and I haven't stopped since. But I have learned a lot since I was that six-year-old girl, which has given me a lot of material to write about. 

Back in high school, I thought I had to put on a mask to be loved. So I became a completely different person, and after getting everything I thought that would make me happy (popularity, attention, and being the girl I always wanted to be), I found it was empty. And I knew that I was faking it. So that’s when I Googled about Jesus because I thought that maybe He’d show me the girl who was behind the mask. It was in that season that I was introduced to God’s love for me and that He actually created me to be different form everyone else. I didn’t need to be different to be loved. (This impacted me so much that I actually wrote a book about it, called A Scoop of Honey: A Beginner’s Guide to Faith by Someone Who Once Googled Jesus)

Flash forward to college, when a breakup and my parent’s divorce rocked my world. This experience kind of became a second testimony for me. I was lost, and finding fulfillment in all the wrong places. I tried to fill the emptiness with partying, guys, and a perfect image, which led to a season of disordered eating. I kind of kept God at arms length. But after hitting rock bottom, I was able to see that God was all that was left for me. And that even though everything had changed in my life, He remained the same.
