Ashley Marie Gagel

graduated from the

University of Kentucky

Cum Laude with a

Bachelor of Business Administration

NEW!! Info about Japan!!

Check out the Japan page for information on where Ashley and I will be living and where I will be working.  As we get more information then I will post it there .  I guess I really didn't put a lot of information about when or anything like that so now I have. (2/10/06)

Sign our Guestbook!


I plan on continuing to work on this page as I hope it will always be a work in progress.  I hope to get a Guest Book on here soon, our MSN and Windows Messenger ID for future or current use, more pictures, and more information! (1/21/06)

Check out our NEW Blog ... Just Blog It



Our team finished up this week winning their last 2 games of the season and the girls had a blast.  We started the season 1-3 and finished 4-0! (3/5/06)

Info about Japan!!

Check out the Japan page for information on where Ashley and I will be living and where I will be working.  As we get more information then I will post it there .(1/29/06)


Ashley and I are coaching one of two girls (2nd-5th grade) Upward Basketball Teams at our church.  We lost our first two games, but today, January 21, WE WON!!!  I wasn't there, but Ashley said the girls were superly overly excited! (1/21/06)  

Top of Page

One More Semester!!!

Ashley has just one more semester of classes at University of Kentucky (I think we are gonna put a UofL sticker on the diploma!) before she graduates with her Bachelor's of Business Administration.  Graduation will be May 7th and graduation parties will follow!! (1/21/06)

Why a web page?

Well, several reasons ... there are lots of changes in mine and Ashley's life that you may not know about (going to Japan!?), we don't get to talk to everyone in Louisville as much as we want, and well I just want to!  I want this to be a page that you can go to just to see what it going on in our lives ... in Japan we will be using this page a lot. (1/21/06)  



Here is a very cool wallpaper if you are a Steelers fan!  Stephen, I think you would like it. (1/29/06)

Cedar Grove Baptist Church

Ashley and I moved our membership from Parkland to Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Stamping Ground, KY last fall.  We really enjoy this "little" country church as there is nothing "little" about the church's vision.  We opened our Family Outreach Center, a.k.a. The ARK (Activities and Recreation for Kids) in December where we have Awana on Wednesday nights, Upward Basketball on Saturdays and all the children Sunday School classes on Sunday!  CGBC averages around 120 in attendance, but have been in the 140 range since the beginning of Upward this January!  We are already seeing the fruits of our labor for Him!
