Today is my first book launch. It’s much like attending my own wedding five years ago; surreal. Yet at the same time, it’s far too ordinary–like going to the mall. I have to keep reminding myself over and over to thank Jesus, for only He could have brought me here, helping me to fulfill one of my life goals at 28 years of age. Thank you Lord. May your will be done in my life.

    Congratulations, Emily!

    How does it feel to hold your own book, and to share a reading from it?

    Belated congratulations, Emily! I wish I could have been there too! Thank you for posting the photo.

    As I’ve already told you, I am loving your book. The way you write makes me wish I could live in your head and see the world through your eyes.

    You are a beautiful person, a beautiful soul, and a beautiful young woman. Thanks for sharing all your beauty through your words and art.

    Much love,
