Ashley also founded Together in the Trenches, a ministry for foster and adoptive moms.

Ashley has been happily married to her husband Michael for over 13 years. They live in Louisville, KY and are the proud parents to four amazing children, blessed by the gift of adoption!

We sat in therapy and he had tears in his eyes, "I just don't understand. We are living the dream. House, kids, everything we prayed for. Why isn't that enough?"
This will stand out to me for a long time. Not just because I saw my husband cry, which rarely happens. Not because I felt guilty or shamed in any way (I didn't at all). Not because there was an uncomfortable amount of silence followin... Read more of this blog post »

“Yes, I see why we endured infertility and a lengthy adoption process now, but I don’t know all the reasons for all the struggles and waiting in my life. That is part of having faith this side of Heaven. ”
Ashley Wells, Everyone's Waiting for Something: searching for meaning when life's on hold

“While we wait for the things of this world, we are ultimately waiting for Christ’s return. Each season of waiting can remind us all the more that we are ultimately waiting for Him, each and every day.”
Ashley Wells, Everyone's Waiting for Something: searching for meaning when life's on hold

“To find true and lasting contentment, we must seek God. We must see Him blessing us. We must realize that His will is good for us and trust Him, even in the waiting. Then, go beyond that and look for the good and perfect gifts that He is giving us right now, in this season.”

Goodreads Librari...: Need Books Removed from Author Page 3 16 Jul 29, 2017 01:30PM  
“Our children are humans and deserve to be treated respectfully. Discipline doesn’t include raging, screaming, abusing, neglecting, humiliating, or shaming our kids. God never treats us like that. That sort of discipline never “produces a harvest of righteousness and peace.”
Jen Hatmaker, Out of the Spin Cycle: Devotions to Lighten Your Mother Load

“You feel ill-equipped to meet your child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Because, for the most part, you are. God wants you to rely on him and the people he’s surrounded you with. You are not designed to do this parenting thing alone, even if you are a single parent. There are no gold stars for parents who never ask for help.”
Kathi Lipp, 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids

“No unique purpose for your life will fill your soul. The only thing that will fulfill and settle your soul is God himself.”
Jennie Allen, Restless: Because You Were Made for More

“change without passion leads to burnout. There’s simply no way to stay engaged and motivated over the long term without our hearts being part of the process. Does”
Holley Gerth, The "Do What You Can" Plan: 21 Days to Making Any Area of Your Life Better

“Those of us who have been saved have been set apart for a great purpose—and that great purpose is actually not a secret: we are to know God and make him known. So we do not dream independently, and God does not sign off on our dreams. He is the builder of our dreams. We bring him our blank canvases, hand them over, and say, “Whatever you must create to display your glory, do it.”
Jennie Allen, Restless: Because You Were Made for More
