Abandon Labels, Discover God’s Truth
As women, we are so many things to so many people and often loaded with responsibilities. I’ve been on a journey the last 12 years of feeling lost and looking in the mirror, unsure who the person looking back truly is. You may feel similarly – uncertain who you are anymore, mabye even too exhausted to think about it. And even though we’re not physically sitting beside each other, we are here together.
Let’s dive into this book, you and me, and start removing negative labels and learn how to discover God’s truth for our lives. God beautifully designed you and me with a specific purpose, so let’s drown out the noise and allow God to be the loudest voice in our ear. Grab a blanket, grab a friend, and let’s awaken our souls together.

Brenda Hembree says
I’m only on the 2nd chapter of this book but so far it is Beautifully Designed…perfect title. I will write more when I read more but I am so excited at what I am reading and have already ordered another book for someone who is going thru a valley for a Christmas present.
Ashley Shepherd says
I love you Brenda and I am so happy you are already loving it. I can’t wait to see what God does in your life through it!
Cari Barker says
By the time I was on Chapter 2 I made the decision to lead a group in this study. In January I will be leading 3 groups on this study. This message is applicable to everyone mail and female. If you have preteen daughters do this study with them. The value you will add and the pain you can help spare them is immense. I wish in high school I had known my true worth and identity and not struggled so hard with what the world thought. Ashley has made herself vulnerable and open in the book. Her sense of humor and enthusiasm shines through on every page.
Ashley Shepherd says
Thank you so much Cari! I am so excited about you leading and guiding other women through it. I am praying for you as you lead it. I am excited to see how God works in their lives because of your obedience.
Debbie Byrd says
I’m LOVING every page of this book! I’ve had it with me in the doctor’s office, salon, and in the car (just in case there’s a stop light ?). This has been such an easy read and so relatable. I look forward to finishing up and sharing with others! Thank you Ashley for being so real with your story and allowing God’s light to shine through you and onto others! ❤
Where about in East Tennessee are you from, ofcourse dont give out your close proximity or anything, but I live in Knoxville but was raised in Maryville a little town 15 minutes south of that. I cannot wait to read the book because I hope to use it with a Bible Study I have started with 6 women who are still kind of new to their faith but also have self esteem issues and whom I met when I landed in a domestic violence shelter. God has restored so much to me and now He is letting me give back to these women for His Glory…
Wow I got invited to The Lift Church in Sevierville and listening to you speak it just spoke straight to my heart I wanted to curl up in to ball and cry because everything you said was spot on you impacted my life I’m currently reading your book and I’m so thankful and blessed for this thank you so much for your encouragement and most of all praise him !
