Worthy Women Project: Ashley Oldham

“The WORTHY WOMEN PROJECT aims to ignite strength in ALL women by sharing their stories. You are fearfully and wonderfully made!”

– Ashley Nicole

What do you remember learning about beauty from a young age? What impacted you the most that you’ve carried with you into adulthood (positive or negative)? 

The biggest impact on me was watching my mom, grandmother and great grandmother. They were never on a diet, never talked about other people’s bodies or talked negatively about their own bodies. I never battled body image issues as a child and teen as a result of that strong positive influence. They were women who lived life, laughed hard, loved their families and took care of their skin. This lesson has definitely impacted how I speak about myself in front of my daughter. 

Tell me your story! What life experiences have made you who you are today? 

Where to start?? I am a girl from eastern KY. Battling infertility has been a huge part of my story. By God’s grace, I am on the other side. I am a proud twin mama. I am married to the love of my life. We found each other and it has been an adventure ever since that day. I have experienced quite a bit of grief in my young life, but it makes me so grateful for each moment. And how blessed I am to have such amazing people to miss. Experiencing so much loss at an early age has allowed me to truly live in the moment. 

What is your definition of beauty? 

Beauty is in the story. Once you know someone’s story, it changes how you see them. I think owning who you are and being confident in that is beautiful also. 

Do you think you are beautiful? 

Yes. I do because I come from beautiful people and I see my family when I see myself. 

What is your favorite NON physical feature about yourself? (After all, beauty is a light in the heart!) 

My passion for life.

What words of wisdom, based on your personal experience, would you like to share with others who struggle to see their own beauty? 

Your beauty will attract those that matter most. People are watching. In this filtered world, I think it is an unfair & false standard that young girls and women are comparing themselves to in photos online. Never compare yourself to others. When my children think of me, I want them to remember a momma that was present – not a woman who was unhappy with her body and missed out on moments. 

Why are beautiful photos important for you right now? 

I want to capture this moment in my life. As a busy mom to young children and a school counselor, I want to capture where I am now and give them to my momma and children.

How does being the woman you are today make you uniquely powerful?
