Hi, I’m Ashley. Welcome to Circling the Story, a blog that hones in on the particular and in so doing, participates in a wider narrative of grace. Grace in the mundane, daily tasks we all do. Grace for the perfectionist and grace for the lazy. Grace for the corporate exec and grace for the mama cleaning up Cheerios. Grace upon grace.
I think through writing. I’ve been devouring books since I could read — I remember almost being terrorized by the onslaught of street signs when I could first piece letters into words in kindergarten. Now I string words together on this blog, in my academic writing, and countless renditions of Goodnight, Moon.
I have 4 kids, a Ph.D. in literature and one pastor husband. We’ve lived all over southern California, Scotland, and now, Salt Lake City, Utah.
