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 speaks to women who yearn to look beyond the surface and get to the heart of life; whose purposes and loves are eternal. Their articles are practical, spiritual, and encouraging. In a world of shiny treasures that will corrode before we can blink, Ungrind helps us focus on the things that matter -- remembering that we are, first and foremost, women of God."

--Rachel Starr Thomson, author of Heart to Heart: Meeting With God in the Lord's Prayer
