Emily Freeman took her first creative writing class in high school and has loved writing ever since. She finds great joy in studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her deep love of the scriptures comes from a desire to find their application in everyday life. She is the author of several books, including The Peter Potential: Discover the Life you Were Meant to Live; 21 Days Closer to Christ; and Written On Our Hearts. There is nothing Emily enjoys more for breakfast than a bowl of coconut ice cream, strawberries, and toasted coconut. Other favorites include parades, vacations, firework displays, and going for a long walk with a good friend. Emily and her husband, Greg, live in Lehi, Utah, with their four children, whom she adores.
I believe in Heavenly Father who loves and provides watch care over each of His children. I believe that He hears and answers our prayers. In the still moments of life I have come to know Him as my God, mine helper. He knows my heart. He supplies my need. He gives the increase.
I believe in Jesus Christ who is our Advocate with the Father, our Savior, and our Redeemer. I know Him as the Author and the Finisher, the Giver of Every Good Gift, the High Priest of Good Things to Come. He is the Good Shepherd. He calls me by name and I follow because I long to become His. When I walk through the waters of life, He is with me and the rivers do not overflow me. When I pass through the fire, I am not burned; neither do flames kindle against me. For He is the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, my Savior. Since I am precious in His sight, He has loved me. I do not fear, because I know He is with me. (see Isaiah 43)
I believe in the books of scripture that center on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. These words are a source of strength in my life and a constant guide. Here I find comfort. Here I find answers. Here I find hope.
My greatest desire is to stand as a witness of Jesus Christ.
With all my heart.
For all my days.
