  1. Hi Emily, I came to your website after reading your article 5 Ways to Keep from Goaling Yourself to Death. Very interesting and helpful, please keep writing.

  2. Hi Emily-
    I just read your article “Six Important Things I Learned About Poverty”. I went through a similar experience a few years ago (although I did it with two teenage kids, cats and a dog). For the first time in my adult life, I qualified for food stamps and made very painful choices (food also won out in our case).
    Thanks so much for writing such a moving insightful article. It brought tears to my eyes. You are truly a gifted writer and wise beyond your years. Keep up the good work. Blessings to you and your family.
