About Emily

What’s your story?

It’s an important question, because whether we realize it or not, the narratives we tell ourselves drive so many of our life choices, feelings, and beliefs. I spent most of my life living out of a story that was written for me by some malicious people. I believed what was said to and about me, and those beliefs almost cost me my life.

My story is being rewritten by truth.

For decades I was not allowed to speak the truth about what was happening to me behind closed doors. I carry scars on my body, mind, and soul from those many years of abuse.

Thankfully, Truth found me.  And He set me free.

Encountering the true and living God didn’t fix everything instantaneously, but He did set me on the path to discovering His story about me. Now, I want to speak truth whenever I have the chance. Whether it’s in leading worship at my church, writing a blog post, parenting my five kids, or speaking life to someone over a cup of coffee, the truth is something I’m passionate about helping others discover for themselves.

My husband and I were high school sweethearts and have five kids. He is a Worship Pastor at our local church, as well as a Project Manager for a tech company. I’ve been primarily a stay-at-home mom and co-own an Etsy shop called Bracelets for the Balkans to help fund our family’s calling to serve in the Balkan Nations.

When I’m not doing all the things, you’ll probably find me in my bed, because it is my favorite place on earth.

I hope you’ll connect with me on social media, because I’d honestly love to get to know you.

Thanks again for stopping by! 🙂
