Welcome to Embracing Beauty!




I’m a firm believer in beauty.  I love beauty.  My aim with this blog is to create something beautiful that is worthy of your time.  


I appreciate fine and beautiful things but they aren’t my treasures.  I know what is really important in this life and I know it’s not things.  My aim in this life isn’t to “store up my treasures” but to bring glory to God, the ultimate designer of beauty.  He created beauty.  He created all beautiful things.  Everything that I create or have created is because I myself was created by a Master.  


I am constantly on the look-out for ways to simplify and organize every aspect of life — from the way I manage my time and money, to the recipes I make each day, how I clean and organize our home, and especially in my role as a work-from-home mom, wife, caregiver, volunteer, business person, etc!




My passion is to try to become the Proverbs 31 woman, and while I realize that is an enormous, probably unattainable goal, I want to try to be as close as I possibly can.  I hope to share as many of my tips, ideas, recipes, stories, successes, and failures with you so you can also create YOUR best life along with me.  


I feel the need to stress that in writing this blog, I do not boastfully put myself forth as a perfect Proverbs 31 woman. In fact, true Proverbs 31 women realize there is always room for improvement, and that Proverbs 31 is really not about holding up prideful achievements or impossible-to-reach goals. It’s about striving to be the woman God wants us to be.  


So it is with humility that I document my journey to become a Proverbs 31 woman– through God’s grace. I hope this blog will help you to find the peace that can only come when we choose to obey and love Jesus Christ.




I’m Ashley, the wife of a wonderful man, Michael, and mommy to a precious little girl.   I’m a Christian and I’m passionate about glorifying God and making the most of the time I have here on earth. All I have is thanks to my Creator and Redeemer.
