Hi There!

Welcome!

Hi! My name is Emmylee! Nice to meet you! I am so happy to finally be at the point in my life where I know I NEED to blog. I love to write, and I have always found such peace in words. Now I get to share them with you! I’m a happily married 20-something mom to 2 little bears. After a whirlwind romance, I listened to God and went with my heart. My husband and I were married after about 9 months of dating, and my Little Bear was very happy to include Papa Bear into the family. Now our family is complete with Baby Bear! My husband is the sweetest macho-man I have ever met, but don’t tell him I said it. Little Bear is my rambunctious, generous, happy-go-lucky 6 year old son. Without him, I truly think I would be lost. And then we have Baby Bear, my 7 month old daughter. Whoever says babies don’t have personalities has never met my sweet girl. I am truly blessed to have such loving and supportive family.

I have so many things that I love, and I want to use this blog as a place to talk about all of them. First and foremost is my faith, I am growing in Christ and developing my faith daily. Between devotionals, favorite verses, and just ways to live a life that glorifies God in general, this is the main foundation of my blog. Thru my faith I am learning to be a better wife, a better mother, and a better friend. Aside from God and family, I am on a weight loss journey right now, to lose a total of 80lbs to 100lbs. I currently have a lap-band but it really hasn’t been what I expected. I am hoping to change to a sleeve, but so far I haven’t figured out if I will be doing that or not. I love to cook, both healthy and yummy wholesome recipes!
Now really is the best time for me to share myself, my opinions, and my JOY!

Why “Even the Winds and the Water?”

Luke 8:25, “And He said to them, “Where is your faith?” They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?”
I chose this verse because I think it truly describes where I am in life. If He can command even the winds and the water, then nothing that I set my mind to doing can ever be out of grasp. My life has been a series of calm and storm, almost a hurricane of change over the years, and through it all He has never let go of me. Its easy to say “I love God” but not as easy to say “God is in me”. If he can command the winds and the waters, then even I would be no challenge for him. I want my blog to be a reflection of my faith, regardless of what anyone else defines God as; I know that the Spirit shines in me.
