About Emily

In October 2013, my Bible Study group challenged one another to consider what each of us would do differently in this life if God really is who he says he is.  This was the birth of Messy Worship.  I believe, with all that I am, that Jesus is the son of God.  I am on a quest to read through the entire Bible and find ways to apply what I learn to my daily life.  I am passionate about shattering the “boxes” that I live my life in.  I became a certified Christian Life Coach because I want to help anyone to see life differently – through God’s eyes. I’m a recovering perfectionist, married to an amazing visionary educator (Mike), step-mom of two boys (Doug and Wolf) and mom of another two boys (Gabe and Sam).

About Messy Worship

This life is messy. My life is messy. When I try to act like it isn’t, all I do is distance myself from those I love and prop myself up as god. When I let God be God, my messy life becomes messy worship, which is beautiful to Him and contagious in its freedom.

I believe that you can bump into God outside of a Sunday morning church service. That is what Messy Worship is: a written meditation with an authentic, transparent take on the Bible’s application to today’s world. I’m not a pastor. I’m not a Seminary graduate. I’m just a girl who thinks faith is about talk AND walk. This is where I challenge myself to blurr the line between “life” and “worship” so much that the line disappears a little more each day. I hope, by sharing what I learn, the idea of a seamless life of worship becomes contagious.
