Hello

I’m so glad you’re here.

About me

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 is a wife, a mama to three kids, and a friend to many. Em has a bachelor’s degree in English, Creative Writing and Journalism, and while her day job is in a library, her superpower is editing and helping authors with their manuscripts.

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