Em is a lover of words, and has spent a lifetime recording the raw and intricate details of life in her journals and blogs. She speaks light and hope, and writes from a reservoir of deeply anchored faith in Jesus—as well as many a long mac (with almond milk, please).

She believes in the beauty of tight hugs, freshly ground coffee and early mornings.
