Things about Emily: "" I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love my family. I love my friends. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010. I 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. I enjoy taking pictures. I have two ugly puppies. I have my PhD, but that is mostly nerdy-boring... except that I love my job! Resting days are lost in gardens and books. 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. 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. His hip and cool day job includes writing copy for UncommonGoods.com.

“Eulogy” comes from the Greek—“eu-“ means good or well, and “-logia” means words or speaking. It’s “praise,” “to speak well of,” or even “a blessing.” This is the eulogy I shared at Jeanine Barrett’s funeral, on January 17, 2013. *** … Continue reading
Dear Driver, This is not an accusatory letter. I know nothing about you, the status of your personality or character, what kind of state you were in when you were driving, or the degree of safety or speeds at which … Continue reading
It is 3am, and I am awake. If mom were alive, she would probably be awake, too. I am in the walk-in closet, hiding so I don’t wake up Nathan. There is no place else to go to write, with … Continue reading
We are made of seasons. Experiences throw us into the darkest nights and coldest winters. Our tears are rainy days for our hearts, watering the seeds of grief and healing. Laughter heals us the way the bright blue sky does … Continue reading
In the Jewish calendar, today is a special Shabbat. It is the first Saturday of the new year of the Jewish Calendar. It is the Sabbath that commemorates the children of Israel being instructed to get ready for the exodus … Continue reading
I learned something big in Hebrew School the last few weeks. I usually do learn something, that’s why I love it, but I mean I learned something big. Big enough I have twirled around in my head for almost two … Continue reading
