Ashley is passionate about everything in life, but mostly about Jesus and about the way He changed and continues to transform her life. She grew up a "good girl" attending church weekly as well as a Christian school. She thought she had it all figured out until she became a wife and mom and the identity she had created for herself around what she did was ripped from her hands.
Depression set in for five years and as she walked through a broken identity and self hatred she bordered a place that felt close to losing her mind. Guilt plagued her, humiliation seemed to define her and brokenness was the only way she could seem to define herself. She began to resent God and all the "right answers" she thought she knew but were no longer working. Things continued to spiral out of control until it seemed she was at her rock bottom. All her life she just wanted to help "those poor people", the ones Isaiah 61 described as sitting in darkness, chained, broken and covered in ashes. As she faced her own desperation she realized she was those people and Jesus began to speak to her that He wasn't just her Savior once from hell, but He wanted to save her again and again. Grace wasn't just for salvation but it was the power to change what she felt powerless to overcome.
Ashley now encourages women daily on Instagram @ashley.morgan.jackson to stand up as the warriors they are and to be intentional about getting in God's word and taking back ground that the Enemy has stood on for far too long. She is currently looking to publish her first book, The Blessing of Being Broken, her story of walking through her depression and what God taught her about receiving from Him, surrender, and being honest about her deep need for Him. She recently had a pre-launch for the book, check out the video her husband lovingly put together…
She has also written a Bible study that she has taken several groups through titled “Called to Build” all about learning what following our calling means through the study of Nehemiah.
She is a wife of ten years and has two little boys, 9 and 5, her number one ministry. She is currently working on an online school of the same name as her Bible study for women interested building an online ministry or presence where women can learn everything from how to overcome comparison and insecurity and how to not make what they’re called to an idol, to the practicals of how to grown an online platform, graphic design and everything in between.
