Give a little Love 146

What a great idea!  Not only are these e-cards absolutely ADORABLE, they also raise money for Love 146, an organization working to stop human sex trafficking {}

Give a little love this Christmas, give to change a girl's life.
{and YOU decide how much you would like to donate.}

Much love,

This is not my first Thanksgiving away from home, but it is the Thanksgiving that puts me closer to my first Christmas not with my family.  I am so thankful for a family that I can miss...and that miss me back. I'm not sure why God decided to give the hubbs and I such great families, but sometimes I think that He blessed us so that we could be family to those who were not as blessed.

I love you guys and wish the hubbs and I could be with you this holiday season!

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth

the perfect shirt

on a pretty wonderful lady
Meet Hannah and the perfect shirt...why is it perfect?
Besides the obvious that is says "love.", it is alto UT orange and a v-neck...perfect
Hannah is one of my girls from my time sponsoring my home church's youth group.  We had some pretty amazing times and I have enjoyed watching her grow into the beautiful woman she is today!

Hannah, you are lovely and I pray that God's love is evident through you and in the life around you.

Much love,

Need a prayer for today?

Sometimes I am so overwhelmed by life that I can't even pray.  Have you ever felt that way?

Well, no worries!  Shane Claiborne and friends have a blog of prayers that focus around loving God and others...good stuff.

the most wonderful man in my life

{yes, Mom, I am saying my husband is more wonderful than Dad}
I don't like to give up...its just not me {ask my mom how I act when I want her to buy something for me and she tells me no}

But it's not about's about seeing my husband thrive, rather than drown in a crazy house with poor support.  He is great at his job...but he cannot thrive without support.

I love him...we need to do what is best for him...still waiting on God for that one...

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth

A text for Tuesday

In response to a recent post on The Newlin Weds blog, my dear soul sister, Justina, sent me this text:

{Just read the newlin weds blog...latest two entries.  Really impacted me Em.  You live so intentionally with these boys its making many of my relationships seem shallow.  REAL family is REALLY painful.  thanks for sharing.  i pray that God protects you and Jon emotionally and gives you what you need for each have so much love in your heart and this has been a long obedience.  I am so proud of you and jon.  Whatever happens, the Lord is with you.}

That is one great text.  Thank you, Stina, for your ever present love and encouragement in my are a precious source of love for me.

I also thought about how wonderful it is for me to go to school and get so much encouragement there as makes me feel for the hubbs.  His network is so limited here.  So, if you feel led...send him an encouraging email :)

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth
