who am i?
i'm a mom. it's not my sole occupation, but it is, most days, one of my chief concerns. investing my life into my daughter (and now also into our adopted daughter) is one of the most important tasks i've ever been given. another important job of mine is pouring my life out in my marriage. i can't expect to get what i myself refuse to give. so i learn... every day. but the single most important thing... out of all the important things that i do in the seemingly insignificance of the daily grind is: know God. He is the reason for the title of the blog. i am not alone in this often mess of a world. He is the reason why i take a deep breath and choose to not yell at my seven-year-old girls. He is the reason i get up, make soup, and vacuum. and this is a catalog of our adventure. a place to dream, ask questions, and vent. a place to be. my name is emily, dear one. what's yours?
