Meet Ashley

Here’s what I’m supposed to say…

I’m supposed to say, “I wish we could be meeting over coffee, but this will have to be the next best thing!”

But, you know what? I actually think this is the best thing. Written words are beautiful and powerful. Our words exchanged here in print couldn’t happen over coffee. At least not for me. My soul comes alive when I wrestle with words in my journal and then find some sort of answer on the keyboard.

Don’t hear me wrong — I am so totally pro-coffee. I’m drinking my third cup right now. So maybe I’ll go with the next popular line, “Grab your coffee and pull up a seat!”

Check out a couple things I’ve written:

Huffington Post

Upworthy

Scary Mommy

Medium

Australia’s Mamamia

Lifetime’s The Conversation

 

After several years as an editor for a full-service marketing agency and a grant writer for a statewide nonprofit, I moved to Texas to pursue a Master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. I’m currently the Communications Director for my local church in my home state of Maryland, and I’m a little bit obsessed with the intersection of faith and creative writing.

In true on-trend fashion, I’m so thankful that you’re here. I mean that sincerely, my friend. Now, keep drinking that coffee and stay for a while.

xo. Ashley
