I am Emily- wife, mum, avid tea-drinker. I like to treasure pretty things but I am learning even more to treasure the God who created the pretty.
I am thankful- thankful for words, thankful for life, thankful for grace- the undeserved love and favour of God. I am amazed that even in the midst of my self-centred sin, God would pursue me through sending His beloved Son to die my death and rise again proving He was and is God.
I am amazed that He now invites me into restored relationship through His Son. I am challenged that I am offered the opportunity to pursue Him through growing in my knowledge of Him and His word.
Here, I aim to share openly and honestly in order that God would get the glory and people would see Him at work in the marvellous and the mundane.
Join the community as we grow in our pursuit of God together.

“…but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.”
