Hi, I'm Ashley. Usually people have one mission. I have two: I'm on a mission to help you stop settling for a stressed-out, over-scheduled life and I'm here to help parenting writers see their work published (and paid). I'm passionate about helping parents stop making decisions that are grounded in fear. Have a peek around the site; a lot of people say it's a breath of fresh air! Enjoy.

Personal growth and hand-on learning

We're about progress, not perfection.

Parenting doesn't have to be messy. Encompassing a sustainable model of personal growth, job satisfaction, and work/life/home balance, LAP is here to help you find (and keep) your Happy Place. At our core is a belief that we must feel self-fulfilled personally before we can help our kids feel fulfilled.

Is every day rosy-cheeked perfection? Of course not.

Parenting might be one of our biggest journeys, but it's not our only journey. Whether you're looking for solutions to parenting or life problems, we've got your back.

We are a community of present parents who value personal growth and family adventure, in all shapes and sizes. We try hard not to over parent, under parent, and promise to never be the absent parent. ​
