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 a best-selling author of numerous books, including Creating a Christ-Centered Home; Closer to Christ; and Even This: Getting to the Place Where You Can Trust God with Anything. She is a favorite speaker at Time Out for Women and a cohost with David Butler of Don't Miss This, a "Come, Follow Me" study channel on YouTube. There is nothing Emily enjoys more for breakfast than a bowl of coconut ice cream, raspberries, and chocolate chips. 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, and are the parents of six children, and grandparents to six grandchildren, all of whom she adores.
Meet my friend Jess. She is a professional photographer, editor, and creator of Jess Kettle Presets. Her work has taken her everywhere from the Ozarks to Aruba, and she has been featured on Martha Stewart’s website and in Good Housekeepingand The Knotmagazines. She has four kids and loves girls’ nights out and spending summer days at the lake with her family.
I can’t wait to introduce you to my friend Katie. She is someone I admire because no one creates the magic of gathering in the same way she does. Her love for gathering was passed down through the women in her family, and the art of hospitality was taught to her by her mother. Katie believes that love is in the little things.
