I'm Ashley and I want to mother with purpose. 

You in?

It's too easy to just go through the motions and get lost in the mundane everyday routine of motherhood and miss out on what's most important.

I want to look back on my motherhood journey and have no regrets. That means I need to be purposeful in the today to make that a reality. Living on purpose doesn't just happen, you have to pursue it.

I hope the message you hear from me encourages you as we seek together to have a purposeful mothering journey!

I'm happily married to Michael and we are the parents of four kids aged eight years old up to seventeen years old. Our children joined our family through foster care adoption. It hasn't been an easy road for us. I'm a full-time parent, and I also homeschool our younger three kids. In my spare time, I like to read, drink sweet tea (although I'm trying to do better at limiting myself) and I thoroughly enjoy getting together with friends.

I originally started a blog in the summer of 2008 out of a desperate place wanting to connect with women outside of my home. Writing a blog grew into an amazing hobby for me personally. I found it very fulfilling.

I continued to write until the fall of 2015. Our family was facing tremendous struggles and I knew I needed to devote my full energy to the people inside of my home. So I laid it aside and wondered if I would ever pick it back up. It was a season of letting go.

I'm excited to get back into blogging. I've missed it very much. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. And although it feels slightly awkward to be writing, I'm sure the skill will come back like riding a bike. At least I hope so.
