Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Women Soaring is designed to meet the needs of Military Spouses. We are about finding freedom in who we are in Jesus Christ and taking flight in our gifts and talents to soar with others.

Women Soaring

Women Soaring is a diverse community of women with hearts for Jesus. We believe every woman can truly soar in their calling from God. Aiming to meet the needs of the wives married to service men or women serving in the military, single or in retirement. Scripture tells us, “So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” (Romans 12:5) There is freedom in knowing who we are in Christ Jesus as each and every one of us is gifted and talented by the hand of God our creator. It is our personal prayer that each woman who joins our flock would find grounding in who they are in Christ so that they can spread their wings and take flight. We are better together. Let’s soar.

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Associate Director

I’ve been married for 13 years to a handsome Navy sailor and we have 3 children together. I am a homeschooling stay-at-home mom and soon-to-be foster mom. I have a desire for all women to find their identity in Christ and not in the world and for this to ground them in how they treat their husbands and raise and teach their children. My husband and I recently completed a training to become marriage mentors to help marriages at different levels of crisis. Our ultimate goal is to help people, marriages and families become more whole through a biblical truth filled, Holy spirit lead life.

I am a Navy wife and married for 6 years. A stay at home mom to three little ones. We love Jesus and everywhere He takes us. I have a passion for the marriage bed and recovery. I believe you can teach an old dog new tricks and I also believe you can cleanse that dog back to innocence.

Hello! I was raised in a military family (my dad is retired Air Force, my grandfather, most of my uncles and some cousins), I was the first girl in the family to join. I absolutely loved my job (Public Health) in the Air Force. Now I’m happily married to an incredibly supportive, loving man and a mama to three kiddos who keep me on my toes. I have a passion to share God’s wondrous love through service, encouragement, and photography.

Hi, I have been married for 8 years. I have one very cute and fun 1 year old boy. I have always liked sports. Volleyball being my favorite to play. My favorite to watch is baseball, it could be because my brothers played. Interesting fact, I was homeschooled for k-12.

Born and raised in Maryland, Ashley had a pretty laid out plan to settle down and follow a career path as a chemist. Fortunately, God had other plans and intersected her path with someone who would grab her heart and shake things up. In July of 2011, Ashley married into the air force and hasn’t looked back.
It can often be hard to find clarity in things falling at your feet but with faith and family a rocky road can still lead to beautiful places. Ashley is currently a new California resident with her husband and 3 girls, after making a big hop over the pond from England. Fresh air, water, and adventure can always be squeezed into her busy agenda as a stay at home mom.

I am a small town Wyoming girl born and raised. I love Jesus and am in awe of his grace and goodness everyday. My husband and I will be celebrating 10 years of marriage this year. We have been blessed with 3 sons, whom I have the wonderful privilege of homeschooling. I enjoy spending time with family, camping, gardening, cooking, facilitating a local food co op, and leading our community’s homeschool group. I am passionate about supporting mothers in all stages of motherhood as well as children’s ministry. Fun fact. I love bargain shopping! My favorite places to shop are yard sales and thrift stores.
