my name is ashley. my friends call me higgs. i’m a simple gal, really. i love jesus, drink coffee, wear cardigans, and do crafts. i hate it when my food touches. i like for things to match. i get frustrated when people don’t understand the way my mind works. i’m creative. i write the way i talk. i like to think i’m quirky. i read and write. i value friendships. i have a deep need to travel often. i like holding babies and taking naps on rainy days. i could dream for days. so sometimes i do.
i have a passion to see the world changed. i traveled with a group of crazy missionaries through the world race. we went to 11 countries in 11 months serving the poor and learning to live a life that was dependent only on jesus. since coming home in 2010 i have moved my life to gainesville, georgia where i serve on staff with the world race in their college-age department.
i’m thankful. sometimes i’m so thankful i cry about it. and other times i just laugh to myself and wonder how on earth i ended up here. here in georiga. here in a place of grace and freedom and redemption and community. here in a place where i get to serve the nations by sending people to them. people that will offer them hope.
