I cleaned out a closet tonight, trying not to just sit around missing Nathan, and found some memory-ish things.

I found some pictures from when I was in Australia:


A study on “red” that I did in 4th grade:


My duck from 5th grade that won a prize and got displayed at the performing arts center:


My 11th grade artistic interpretation of the 7 habits book:


An essay from 5th grade about what I would do if I were president:


A story from 3rd grade about my lemonade stand:


And a play from 2nd grade:


Nathan’s response to my awesome play?

1. Good for your teacher for teaching proper script formatting. 2. The play is set in a library because of course it is.

My first discourse on the atonement, from when I was 8 years old:


My first Hebrew translation, from age 9:


An essay I wrote about repentance in 3rd grade:


And a little ceramic girl I carved and glazed for mom in fourth grade:

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.
