I take your worry
out of WordPress.

You're ready to do great things.

You have an incredible idea–something you’ve only dreamed about in the past.  But now?  Now, you’re ready to move forward.  You have a vision of how much better life could be for you and your family.  All you need now is a website!

It’s just that…  well, you have no idea how to build a website, or even where to start.  You have SO. MANY. QUESTIONS!  Questions like:

  • Do I have to learn how to code to build a website?
  • What’s the difference between “hosting” and “domains”?
  • How do I know if I should pick WordPress or another platform?
  • What’s a “theme,” and why do I need one?
It’s enough to make you go crazy.  Believe me–I’ve been there!

I feel your pain!

Hey! I’m Ashley. In the not-so-distant past, I was right where you are now.  I had an idea–one that I knew would lead to greater freedom for my family and me–if I could just get it off the ground! All I needed to do was learn to build a website.

Looking back, I can see now that I went about it the hard way…  I spent a lot of time and money to learn to code:  HTML, CSS, PHP…  the list goes on.  

I’m almost embarrassed to tell you how long it took me to create my first, not-so-pretty web page (not even a website, really–it was just a single page!)…  Ugh.  It took me months to get that far!  But you?  You can have your site up and running in less than a day!!!  The best part?  No coding required!

I believe the Good Lord put me (and you!) on this earth to do more than just draw a paycheck. I believe He wants us all to live fulfilled, happy lives.  For me, that means pursuing my core values of freedom, peace, and generosity. I want to make a difference! My journey began by learning to build websites.

Maybe your journey is just getting started, or maybe you know that a website is your next step.  I will guide you step by step through everything you need to know to get your website out into the world of the interwebs! You’re ready. I know you are. What are you waiting for?!

Random facts about me

My husband and I grew up in the same town and have known each other since I was 14 and he was 16.  We lost touch after my first year of college, until we ran into each other six years later at the Tuff Truck Competition at our county fair, and we’ve been together ever since. That story is only slightly like a country song, right? 

In addition to WordPress, Excel is kind of my jam! I love spreadsheets and numbers.  In fact, I was president of my math team in high school.  Mathletes unite!

I’ve owned three horses in my life–all mares with attitudes.

The only place I’ve been outside of North America is Russia, but I can’t wait to add more countries and continents to that list.

My husband and I are kind of food and beer snobs, but we really don’t mean to be. 

My favorite job of all time was the summer I spent working as a ranch-hand in Wyoming–I got to live my childhood dream of being a full-time cowgirl! It combined three of my favorite things:  cows, horses, and mountains.  Not to mention, it’s where I found Carter, my canine bestie, who’s still with me to this day.

I love beef filet and venison tenderloin, and I eat mine Pittsburg rare.  So good!  

I love taking pictures!  Particularly landscape photos and pictures of my Carter-dog.  I took all the pics directly above and below this section–except for the selfie of my hubby and me smooching.  He’s the selfie king.

Except for very special occasions, the only makeup I wear is mascara. 

I’m a super grammar nerd. I text in complete sentences (yes, I’m one of those people…  I can’t help it!). Side note:  If you find a grammatical error on my website, I will be so embarrassed!  However, please tell me anyway so I can correct it and pretend like it never happened.  🙂
