It wasn’t quite two years ago that I met Kacie. We were both attending the Influence Conference in Indianapolis and had just played one of those ‘get to know you games.’ You know the ones – where someone yells SWITCH! and everyone reluctantly moves to a new table to sit down with a complete stranger. For an introvert, like me (yes, believe it or not I am!), a game like this is pure torture. I remember back to my first…

Friday Favorites (already?!)

August 5, 2016

If you have trouble viewing this video, click here. Oh, you know. Just some birthday Snapchat randomness. (“Got a ear of corn, put it on the grill. Cooked it up, and ate it really fast.” Welcome to my daily life!) Alright well the fact that it’s Friday again is blowing my mind. Didn’t I just share a Favorites post?? The last week has been the busiest, craziest week of my entire life (all good!) but I honestly feel like last…

The Ember Grey Tell-All, Vol. 4

May 11, 2016

Happy Wednesday! Well, it occurred to me earlier this month that I’ve gained a few new readers (which is awesome!), so I thought it might be fun to team up with some of my blogger friends and do a re-introduction of sorts. I’ve had a lot of fun with the rest of these blogger gals, coming up with fun questions to answer and share with you all, and hope you’ll give them a visit today too! I’m Emily, Blogger of…

Faith in change.

September 16, 2015

There are so many things I love about having this space, this blog. One of the things I love the most is that I can go back in time, to see where my mind and heart were “a year ago today.” Yesterday I decided to head back in time and came across this post titled, Season’s Change, His Beauty. In that post, I recognized and gave thanks for His delight in change – in renewal – which I believe is clearly…

Friday Love.

August 21, 2015

This post today is dedicated to all of the bloggers out there… (queue stadium-style echo & 80s pop song). No but seriously, this one today is for all of you! By now you have most likely seen posts pertaining to Adproval (and why they rock) and I wanted to chime in, as well as share my story and why I made the (easy) decision to make the switch to Adproval. Plus? I’ve got one fabulous giveaway to share with you!…

Journal Love.

April 9, 2015

It’s no secret that I have a love of journals. In fact, I have an entire shelf on my bookcase dedicated to all of my journals, most of them completely full or close to being full, as well as another stack of journals on my desk. So you can imagine my excitement when I noticed that two of my favorite bloggers, Cassie from Sage the Blog and Anne from Love the Here and Now (#TRIBE) were hosting a Journal Swap!  I love meeting new-to-me bloggers…

September 30, 2014

One of the speakers at The Influence Conference this past weekend talked about the importance of the spoken word. Sure, writing or blogging or emailing or texting or journaling or praying are all ways of conversing and can still hold sweet, strong, important exchanges, but there is something about the words actually being spoken. It should come as no surprise to you by now that I love meeting new people and I love truly getting to know them. I was…

September 27, 2014

Today is the last day and I can’t wait to share parts of my experience you guys. I’ve already taken so many notes- and the…
