Darla Brown

Growing up first as a pastor's kid in Wisconsin, then as a missionary's kid in Jamaica, Darla Brown has made a loving home with her husband and two daughters in the middle of the two, in Springfield, Missouri. When she's not running around with a baby and a toddler, she's reading, writing, or enjoying a cup of chai with friends. As she also enjoys drawing and painting, her dream is to write children's books and illustrate them herself. Never satisfied with her spiritual state, she desires more of God and to be all that He wants her to be.

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.
