Nathan and I drove to Oklahoma City tonight, to attend the Oklahoma Main Street awards.

And the “Chew Dunnit” mystery play Nathan wrote last summer for the A Taste of Collinsville event was one of four finalists out of 271 entries!

One category was best creative fundraising event:

We lost to a fundraising event that auctioned purses.

The other category was Creative New Event:

We lost here to a zombie 5k run, which felt lame since that’s a thing all over the country and not a new event.

But we were good sports, and proud of Collinsville for winning two individual awards plus winning for Hogs N Hot Rods and also the best website.

It was so fun and exciting!

Good job, Collinsville!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
