Welcome Home

Nathan sweetly surprised me with this when I woke back up again this morning, finally back in my own bed:

And dinner tonight after work, for our own little date before sharing with the kids during FHE:

I am so grateful for him, and he is so kind, and we work so hard in such chaos to nurture our marriage. It was a miracle to us, our marriage, and we don’t take it lightly. I am so grateful to be so happy, to be loved so well, and to learn so well what it means to love another. He teaches me who God is, and shows me how my Father-in-Heaven sees me, and this is often a great mercy to me.

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.
