Miriam Slagle

After earning degrees in English and Music, Miriam Slagle has spent most of her adult life draining red pens as a proofreader and editor. Now that Word's "Track Changes" feature has made hard-copy editing obsolete, she uses her colored pens doing something else she really loves: writing letters and making cards to send in the mail. She has an uncanny knack for remembering names, is devoted to baking goodies from scratch, and wants to visit all 50 states and more than a few countries before this journey ends.

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

"I am very impressed with the content of Ungrind. It is a place young women can go for encouragement, inspiration, and practical ways to navigate a life of faith. In a world that is telling women to find fulfillment through a million 'things,' Ungrind reminds us that we fill our cups through the Word of God and the commonality we share as women who pursue Him."
