I’m a pastor’s wife, mama to 4, and have lots of letters after my name. But most of all I love to encourage men and women to seek beauty in Jesus.

Ashley Hales Speaking

My interests are eclectic and range from books, travel writing, finding beauty in the mundane, and how to stay sane in the peanut butter and jelly years. I love to grapple with big thoughts and cultural trends and make them accessible to an audience.

I’m an academic with a penchant for poetry and after four babies, I’ve got my feet firmly in the real world. I’d love to bring my knowledge, heart, and humor to your group.


Some of my favorite speaking topics include:

*Finding Holy in the Suburbs: A Gospel Conversation about Living Wholly Where You Are

*You Have Nothing to Prove: Living Beloved of God 

*The Power of Story and How to Tell Yours (large or small group workshop)

*Spiritual Practices to Navigate Early Motherhood

*Chasing Dreams and Desire in Your Fringe Hours

*For Those Who Minister: How to Avoid Burnout and Love Others for the Long Haul




I’m available to speak for your large or small group, college ministry, or women’s ministry. You can expect thoughtfulness, depth, and warm authenticity when you book me for your next event.
