Born and raised in a somewhat rural town of Kentucky, Emily had loving parents. Her father worked for the church they attended as a music pastor and her mother as an interior designer downtown. Her only sibling was Jesse, who is the oldest. They lived on a few acres that included a barn and horses. Emily attended a private Christian School. She enjoyed cheerleading and volleyball and stayed very involved with church and missions work.

After graduating highschool Emily followed her passion to do missions work full time and attended Bible College. She graduated with a Missions major and went to work at a Bible College in South Africa for two years where she taught dance classes and worked as an editor for the school. From there she moved to Grenada, West Indies in the Caribbean to join her parents in their missions work there. Her time was filled with working with high school students and elementary students in the schools and church. Two and a half years later she returned to the States. She last worked as a legal videographer before becoming a stay at home Mom after the birth of her two boys, Ezra and Elias. Emily loves staying home with her children.

Emily's favorite things to do when not taking care of the boys are painting, gardening and coffee and antiquing with friends.

"When I think of someone that I want to go have fun with, or do anything with, Emily would be my first pick! Her kindness, humor and life are what draw people to her. She is a great friend and mother. Her children adore her, and she couldn't love them any more than she does. "
