Welcome to Ungrind



Hi, I'm Ashleigh Slater, founder and editor of Ungrind. Here at Ungrind, it’s our goal to churn out biblically-based encouragement for women. We strive to be honest and transparent about our struggles in a way that inspires hope, faith, and perseverance.

As you read, we hope you consider us friends, the kind you feel comfortable sitting across the table with at the local coffee shop. You can read more about me HERE and our team of writers HERE.

What Women Are Saying

"Ungrind is for any woman who has ever felt alone. Alone in her stand for truth. Alone in her insecurities. Alone in living out her potential. It is about community and finding worth first in God and second in the specific purposes He has for women. Reading Ungrind is like sitting down to a cup of coffee with your girlfriends and discovering you're not the only one."

-- Suzanne Hadley Gosselin, author of Expectant Parents: Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood
