YOUnity: Unity Begins with You
Unity in the church is crucial to completing the Great Commission, but often our personal feelings, opinions, experiences, and interpretations get in the way of the church being one. This message, geared toward both congregations and leadership teams, will provide:

  • A needed reminder about the importance of unity in the church
  • An understanding of every individual’s influence on those around them
  • Practical actions that can be taken to influence others toward unity
  • A call to action

Confidence in Christ: Being Yourself When You Want to Be Someone Else
If you have ever struggled with insecurity or a general sense that you just aren’t good enough, you will relate to Ashley’s personal story. She will share how God has helped her become victorious over critical self-thoughts and encourage you to:
• Find confidence in your relationship with Jesus instead of in yourself
• Stop focusing on yourself and start focusing on how to love others
• See yourself the way God sees you

Christ Over Culture
Everywhere you look, the American culture says that you’ll never do enough, have enough or be enough. Ashley uses biblical truth and personal stories to show you the importance of:
• Seeking God and His righteousness before you seek anything else
• Feeding on Christ instead of culture
• Comparing yourself to the cross instead of your companions

Taking Your Thoughts Captive
As women, we have tons of thoughts and feelings, and we often react out of them to our detriment. Ashley expounds on the principle in 2 Corinthians 10:5 to show you how to:
• Take those thoughts captive
• Make them obedient to Christ
• Experience freedom from the tyranny of thoughts which attempt to rule you

Overcoming Fear: Changing “What If” To “Even If”
Have you been trying to encourage those under your leadership to overcome strongholds? Ashley openly shares her journey with anxiety and the freedom she has seen in surrendering her fears to the Lord. With this poignant topic, she will encourage you to:
• Surrender everything in your life to the power of God
• Change the conversation from “What If” to “Even If” as you think through your circumstances
• Never stop fighting for your place in peace

Testimony: Learning to Tell Your Story
Christians know they are supposed to testify to the goodness of God in their life, but actually doing so can be intimidating, so it often goes undone. In this retreat series, Ashley breaks down the process of sharing a testimony into bite-sized, manageable chunks:
• My Story – Ashley shares parts of her testimony while simultaneously walking participants through the everyday life situations where she might share it with others.
• Your Story – In this workshop session, participants go through the process of identifying and refining their testimony and then practice sharing it with others.
• His Story – In this final session, Ashley gives a shot of encouragement to participants that their willingness to share THEIR story is ultimately how people hear JESUS’ story.
