Dr. Ashlei has been such a strong voice of wisdom in my life. When I devoted my life to Christ she really mentored me. Challenged me to learn and seek God’s voice. She was there for me when I had questions, but I loved how she always reminded me that the Holy Spirit was within me and that He will speak to me and answer me when I need Him to. Her mentorship, care, and love have truly helped me to open up in friendships and build a strong community of friends. Dr. Ashlei is a powerhouse for God, a true Christ-follower, and someone that truly partners with God in order to help you grow spiritually.

Courses Tailored to Fit You

Journey to Wholeness

Journey to Wholeness is a course to help women biblically understand wholeness, what the journey to wholeness looks like, and how to implement practical steps to maintain wholeness.

Journey to Wholeness is a Christian E-course, founded by The Ash Exchange International, and it was truly an eye-opener for me. I enjoyed learning about the different processes needed to maintain a healthy walk and relationship with Christ - while simultaneously highlighting the necessity of individual development as a believer †. This E-course was beautiful because it allows ample room for both self-reflection & spiritual growth. I personally appreciated the emphasis that Salvation (in itself) does not equate to our wholeness, but ultimately serves as the beginning step into becoming whole. Overall, this E-Course thoroughly relies on biblical principles to highlight and encourage areas of healing, growth, awareness, wholeness, accountability, and community building. I truly believe it contains much knowledge & wisdom that every Christian needs on their journey!
