Emily is a recovering stay-at-home-mom living in California with her husband Alfred and two year old son, Lucas.

Growing up in the church, she understood her call to ministry as a teenager, and has always come back to home base. She currently works part time on a church staff, and writes in her spare time.

More than a “just a mom” she longs to help all women use their gifts and passions in the here and now, instead of thinking they must give it all up in the name of motherhood.

Living with moderate general anxiety disorder for the better part of her adult life, she’s a fervent advocate for mental health awareness. Taking every opportunity to share her own experiences, her goal is to help others understand and cope.

On the lighter side, she’s a little bit nutty about organization, cooking (and eating) and prides herself on never paying full price for anything if she can help it.

So here’s to emotional health, authentic relationships,  and seeing His kingdom in everyday life.
