My little niece, who isn’t so little, climbed into the car and said “I was the first kid for Aunt Emily, so don’t even think I don’t know life with her.”

That’s what I love about Jessica: she can hold her own, even with her van load of cousins.

As per tradition, we have Jessica this week between Christmas and New Year’s, until she has to go back to school.

I got to hug her mom, but missed my brother who was off to do some service after finding out his stake president’s home is flooding in the storms. Please pray for that family!  We also could use prayers for our safe trip home, after a tornado in Muskogee and all of us just anxious since that’s how mom was killed so close to home.

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.
