Reading Time: 5 Minutes Shaking things up and talking about 4 ways to cultivate a practice of prayer—plus I’m giving a review of Val Marie Paper prayer journals, so you can see how they may help you out like they’ve helped me! So many of us probably wish we prayed more, or if you’re like me, this hits closer […]

Reading Time: 7 Minutes Well, glory be to our Creator: we are so excited to announce we’re gonna meet a little boy, Lord-willing, in December! Thank you, thank you for all your sweet words so far! Sincerely, I read them like a little toddler grinning ear to ear. It’s been a journey already, and I want to create some honest […]

I’ve always been into routines and wanted to share my morning routine here. It’s been a BIG game-changer when it comes to waking up with abundance and gratitude in mind … which helps squelch my grumbling later in the day.

Hopefully, this post explains the PRESENT thing I talk about on Instagram from time to time … and I’d love to know if you do this, too!

Reading Time: 10 Minutes The past few week I spent getting the Ashlyn Writes Shop launched—the first big to-do in my Simplified Planner after August’s sabbatical—I wrote my heart out for two guides in the shop’s Stewardship Series: one for ordering your time & productivity and the other for ordering your goals & plans. Sabbatical and intense time putting […]

Reading Time: 7 Minutes When it comes to how to take a sabbatical, sometimes we grow into our own advice. I’m the girl that says “work from a place of rest—not hustle” … and the slow-down is a waltz and interruption in striving I struggle to learn. Back in December of 2016, we decided August of 2017 would be […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Each month, I tell you about the goals I’m setting for a few reasons–chiefly for (a) accountability and (b) because I used to HATE setting goals, until a certain someone (ahem, Lara Casey) wrote me about how she worked towards cultivating what matters with Powersheets, and a lightbulb clicked.

Reading Time: 4 Minutes 29, huh? As my fingers tap this keyboard, I’m in fact crossing off one of the things you’ll ready below … … so obviously, I’m a big believer in the “you’re 39% more likely to do any goal you write down” rule. On my birthday last year, I published 60 things I wanted to do […]

Reading Time: 5 Minutes Cultivating a life by setting goals helps me mark time and quit the “one day I’ll ____” statements, and you all are always kind to let me share goal ideas each month. Heralding in June with my Powersheets goals posted on the blog, truly my reasoning for doing this is two-fold: It’s easy for me to […]

In attempt to plumb the depths of REST a little bit more, and to dig into my 2017 word “rooted,” March will be a time of rooting deeper still, back into things that make me, well, me.

Here’s my Powersheets Progress for February, and my March goals!
