  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.

  3. Hey Emily, Like Cassie I just read your article “Six Important Things I Learned About Poverty”. This was definitely a God thing 🙂 My wife and I are currently going through a very similar season. Getting to the point here, we found a incredible resource called Volunteers in Medicine here in my town. They are such a blessing. So, they ask if I would be willing to be interviewed etc. After saying yes, I discussed this more with my wife and I thought, mmm, Maybe I’ll pass. This is going to be pictures etc and we know so many folks in our area and most don’t know we are going through this season. They will now LOL. Anyway, you said something in your article describing a ” good transaction “. That little section of your article made me want to go through with the interview because that was a huge, hit the nail on the head statement and it needs to be shared and understood. Bless you, keep on keeping on with Jesus, hubby and your dog. You blessed me and encouraged me beyond expression here with your article so I subscribed. I know God has so much more to share through you and your life. Oh, I guess I better ask first If I can quote you ??? Please let me know asap, the interview is suppose to happen next Thursday 1/11/18. Either way, thanks again, looking forward to reading what you share here and seeing how the house turns out, we are big Chip and Jo Gaines, fixer upper fans. Blessings.

      • Thank-you for even taking the time to reply. They agreed, the quote is dead on and will use it as part of the interview. I shared where I got it from and hope it directs more folks to both Crosswalk and to this site as well. Continue in his love and grace and thanks.
