Shelly Ash

I was born in Elk City, OK to a single/widowed mom with 3 boys. My 35-year-old father died of a cerebral aneurysm while she was pregnant with me. She was amazing. I grew up in church learning about Jesus, was a puppeteer, and very active in choir and youth group.  I went to Oklahoma State University and received a bachelor’s degree in Music Education, then taught elementary music with an Orff emphasis for 23 years. 

I ALWAYS had a strong interest in psychology, relational dynamics, and self-improvement. I taught the Boundaries course by Drs. Cloud and Townsend for 14 years. I took Plumbline’s Soul Care class and graduated in 2014. After I left teaching and my mother passed, I got my certifications in Health and Life Coaching, but I was still searching. Then I started my Splankna training in 2018 and found my niche. 

Splankna (Greek word for gut; like…”I’ve got this feeling in my gut”) is a tool that uses muscle testing to identify negative emotions wrapped around a trauma, then using meridian points (like the chiropractor uses) and prayer, the negative emotions are broken off.  The whole process is wrapped in Biblical boundaries. 

I have learned so much from the Tools that Plumbline offers. As an Ordained Pastoral Counselor and Certified Splankna Practitioner I get to utilize my training as I partner with clients on their journeys as struggling, striving, growing Believers to re-tool their toolboxes! 

Fun Facts: I am married to Jeff Ash and have 2 Yorkies, Riff and Jazz. I love to sing jazz standards and travel. I am an Enneagram 1w9 and am learning to love it! 

Favorite Verse: Roman 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Establishing a plumbline in the hearts of God's people.
