  1. You are to be commended for demonstrating the strength God can give us. Your willingness to share what are certain painful memories is testimony to that. Very well written, very powerful words.

  2. You had a rough beginning but with the hand of God you are now having an amazing life. I love that you want to help others through God, I feel that same. Congratulate Forrest on quite an accomplishment, you and he must be so proud! I look forward to reading more of your posts, you are a blessing! 🙂

  3. Thank you very much for sharing your story on the net. thanks for showing the courage to cope with your past, which shall still demand lots of works. We do hope you shall find good guidance by your bible reading and study.

    In the Word of God you may find lots of answers and together with your prayers (to the right person, i.e. to God) you shall receive guidance and many answers.

    It is nice to hear you are “still pressing in and fighting the good fight of faith”, because that is something each Christian should continue to do.

    Once we found Jesus and his heavenly Father it is no end solution for having a problem life in this world. Lots of bad things can happen to us even when we are ‘reborn’. But it is how we can cope with it that it very important. And if we give ourselves in the hands of God we shall be surprised how He may carry us through this world.

    Lovely also to hear your son has become a ballet dancer. In that world he shall encounter many people who are busy with the spiritual. We do hope it is still such a world of ‘spiritual people’ as it was some years ago, when many openly talked about their relationship with God.

    We express also our sincerely hope that you and him may find the One and Only True God of gods, the heavenly Father of Jesus Christ (who is the son of God and not God himself), the God of Israel, and may enjoy the blessings of the gifts he gives to you and him.

    God bless.

  4. Thank you for giving my site a read. I just read your bio here. All I can say is praise God and good for you! Stories like yours lift me up and energize me to continue witnessing and blogging when I feel myself running out of steam. I have a few series about books that I’ve read back in the archives. If you like to read, maybe look for those: The Exodus Case and Already Gone. I will look forward to reading your posts. If you have a favorite that you are especially pleased with, point me to it.

  5. Lori, so glad to have connected with you here on WordPress. I appreciate and recieve your blessing. God bless you too and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Hello! Thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve enjoyed what I have read thus far of yours. Living this life with Jesus is amazing for sure! Sweet blessings to you and your son.

  8. Thank you for sharing Christ’s testimony in your life, even though I saw it so late. It is always exciting hearing how the Holy Spirit works in lives and draws people to Jesus. I get excited also hearing how the Lord is still working in and through lives to touch and teach others. Looking forward to more posts, as well as reading some of your previous ones. God’s Blessings.

  9. Your life is like a touching movie Emily!Hope you have always peace in your life and that the spiritual paths you follow will always shed light on your way …
    Glad to hear about your son’s professional career on ballet,you must be proud of him,Thanks kindly for coming by and liking my humble blog and my photos!All the very best to you and your son 🙂 ♡(◠‿◠✿) ♥ ♥

  10. Thanks so much! That really is a big help and actually makes a lot of sense. I’m 63 now and have had too carry a lot of responsibility in my life both bringing up my children alone part of the time and playing a substantial role for the Lord sometimes. It has been a strain and since my last birdie flew the nest I’ve stepped down from most of my responsibilities as I felt my walk with Jesus was suffering (although Jesus never asks too much of us sometimes people do and become reliant on you.)
    It’s long been my wish to return to my simple childlike faith, just me and Jesus so your interpretation is hugely encouraging. Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly and clearly. It was a bit of a step of faith to ask you but I’m so glad I did. You have a wonderful gift God bless you!

  11. After pondering dream for a minute I don’t even think its about a specific call, but more like a call to open your heart to that part of yourself with the traits I mentioned above, which it sounds like you have now done. A lot of times dream characters are different parts of ourselves.

  12. I believe it is about a call that God has placed on your life. Perhaps the first time you began to hear the call was when you were about the age of the girl in the dream? Or perhaps she just represents that part of yourself that has childlike faith. Maybe both? Now that she has entered, it is likely that you are finally reconnecting with that part of yourself, full of childlike faith and wonder, that enables you to follow Christ even when it makes no sense to others around you immediately where He is leading. Does this ring true?

  13. Thanks for dropping by. I loved your blog and will follow to read more (we seem to have much in common concerning our relationship with the Lord etc.)
    You said you interpret dreams? I have a reoccurring dream (often several times a week recently) of my doorbell ringing (its been over 10 years and many different places since i first had it so its not someone messing about). It can be annoying as it often wakes me thinking I need to let someone in and I have to tell myself its just a dream. I’m pretty sure there’s no one “locked out” of my life and I’ve asked Jesus many times about it but not received a long term answer.
    Recently the dream occurred as usual then my bedroom door opened (in the dream) and in walked a girl around 10 years old who looked as surprised to be there as I was to see her. She looked very ordinary and didn’t remind me of anyone I know except maybe Lucy in “Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” movie because of her expression (curiosity and wonder). If Jesus should give you any insight I’d love to hear. I really believe in hearing from God but its often harder to get things clearly when it’s for ourselves. Blessings!

  14. Claire, I appreciate you reading and letting me know you were here. Glad to have come across your blog and look forward to reading more posts in the future. God bless!

  15. Thank you Joanne! I am glad you stopped in. Did you recognize our similar blog names? ‘Desert Rose: Blooming In Harsh Conditions’

    That’s great that we are blooming where we are planted. I’m glad I found your blog and look forward to reading more of what you write. Do you commonly take your own pictures for your posts?

  16. Amazing testimony! Amazing grace and AMAZING GOD! Can’t wait to see and hear more about your journey and how God is using you to impact others in Jesus’name.

  17. thank you for telling me about the word press situation. appreciate you always reaching back and i’m very much around. if you ever can’t get me directly than i can be reached at mistermaxxx08@yahoo.com. feel free to drop a line if you ever want to talk. enjoy all your work and depth. blessings and peace onto you

  18. Marianne, thank you for sharing a bit of your story with me. I am always encouraged to hear from others that have been through and come out on the other side still loving and serving God.

    Thank you for your prayer and well wishes.

  19. I also started out keeping dream journals, and volunteering at the local homeless shelter. I have also been a single mom for most of 40 years, supposedly married for 9 years, but did not see him much.

    Being a single mom is very difficult, esp as you grow older, but always remember that you are the Bride of Christ, and He is your Husband. this is your strength.

    Your son is a blessing to you which is wonderful. I pray much success, safety, blessing, and God’s provision for both of you.

  20. I don’t think most people realize just how athletic dancers have to be. My son is still so new to this, he is in the best shape of his life but has far to go yet. He is 16 now and started dancing only 2 years ago.

    We live in a very small area but the dance school is excellent. They are so shy of boys though, I think they tend to be too soft on the boys who join later. They are afraid of running them off! On the positive side, he is getting to dance some with the school’s company dancers even though he is not any where near that level yet. He is learning faster as a result, simply because they need to use the few young men they have.

    He hasn’t done a summer intensive yet as he is super involved in a local youth theater that does large summer productions. I suspect that next year he will have to decide which passion to focus on. I think that by then dance will win.

    It’s so cool to see the pictures here of your son. I showed Russ and he was super impressed. The Lord seems to be bringing inspiration into his sphere…he recently got to hang out with a young man who is on contract with Eugene Ballet Company and was greatly encouraged. (This young man also started dancing later.)

    I will pray for financial provision for your son. I am a firm believer that if this is indeed the road our Lord has for him, He will provide. What an exciting journey for you both!

  21. Yes. I am glad to hear he loves it. It’s such a challenging form of dance. Forrest is right now soaking in epson salt bath, afterwards he will scrape specific muscles with this bone and coconut oil. His dance/work out schedule are dizzying. It’s about like I would imagine Olympic athletes go through. There is always a little concern, when he has a particularly long day of classes and rehersals and looks like he may be walking with limp, that its not just aches and pains but some more serious injury. We’ve been through a broken ankle, a few sprained ankles, and back problems. A disk issue right before summer intensive last year was supernaturally healed. When we got the MRI we weren’t even surprised. We knew God would come through!

    How old is your son? Has he been away to a summer intensive yet? Summer 2013 was Forrest’s first intensive away from the company in our hometown of Chattanooga; Chataugua, NY, he was 16, almost 17. The year before,
    he was injured during audition season and couldn’t go.

    With hard work, dedication, and a talent, males have a better chance at making it in ballet then females, as I’m sure you know. There is competition, but less.

    Right now we are praying and hoping that he may be able to step back to train another year. He is a second company dancer now so its very wise and humble for him to realize he needs more training if he’s going to be his best, but most schools cut off at 18 and he turns 19 in Aug.

    He may still have hope to get into ABT in NY as they take them through 19 and have dorms. Can he get full tuition scholarship? Probably. Full dorm scholarship? That I am not sure about. Don’t know if they even offer them. 😁 He’ll need it though or we will need a financial miracle. Raising money now for the 1/2 of boarding at Ellison in NY for summer intensive hes going to that the scholarships they offered him is not covering.

    I could go on and on. This is kind of a big focus for me right now. It’s just us two and this is the last possible year that his age will allow him to train. It seems so crucial to us. He can, and already has, been able to get job with company but his potential may never be fully developed without a stronger foundation.

    There is a possible inheritance that may open up to help and Im seriously considering going after the 14 years of back child support I never pushed to collect from his absent father. (Its THAT important- leading me to consider opening any door in our life to him again)

    I had no idea ballet would become such a huge thing in our lives. It’s his passion, gift and dream.

    In a lot of ways it is Gods answer to my prayers of protection and purpose for him.

  22. My daughters have danced for several years and my son began joking around with a friend about joining too. The friend didn’t do it, but my son did and instantly fell in love with it. The funny thing is, my daughters are more into the contemporary forms of dance whereas my son is all about the ballet. Funny how life turns out, yes?

  23. Rebecca, that’s awesome that your son has found something he loves in dance. It’s been an adventure for us that has completely changed our lives. I have written about different aspects of it, mostly tagged w ‘single parenting.’ How did your son coke to take a class to begin with?

    Thanks for stopping in and saying hi. I love touching base with other bloggers that have similar life experiences!

  24. Hi Emily. I wish to thank you so much for liking my post, “Effective Ministry”. May I also say that your story intrigues me; how the Lord can bring someone from so very far to experience His love and mercy. I love you, my sister, and may the Lord bless you exceedingly.

  25. Alright, you had me intrigued even before you mentioned your son’s profession or homeschooling. My son, homeschooled as well, started dancing a couple of years ago and absolutely loves it. I’ve not found many other danseur moms, as he is only one of three young men at our local dance school. I look forward to poking about and getting acquainted with your space here. Grace and peace to you!

  26. Dear Emily, thank you for liking my post, “Our Name is NEO!” I really appreciate knowing people are moved by my writing. You sound like a neat person!

  27. Thanks for visiting my ‘about’ page. I’ve been reading yours. You’ve been through a lot and have come out stronger for it. God does work in mysterious ways…

  28. Intense is a good word to describe some of the things I have been through for sure. I am glad you found and took some time to read some of my blog. God bless you and have a great week!

  29. Hi Emily,
    I’m honored that you are following my blog. Much appreciated! And I am now following yours 🙂
    May you be blessed in all your blogging endeavors in 2015 and beyond!

  30. Hello, Emily:

    Thank you for liking my recent blog post; I am flattered.

    May the LORD bless you with a deeper understanding of your faith as you walk in relationship with Him.

    Best wishes,

    Jay Pochapin

  31. Thank you for sharing this with me. I think that God will be able to use your testimony to reach others that are struggling with seeking spiritual experiences through the occult. God bless you in this new year!!

  32. How lovely to log onto my wordpress and find godly people taking the time to read and speak blessings into my life. I really appreciate it. I am looking forward enthusiastically into the new year ahead and believing for growth in every area of my life, for more divine appointments and connections and that God will use me to be a blessing to others. Thank you Tai.

  33. Thanks for visiting my site, Emily! Keep up writing sister–you have a very powerful testimony which God is using mightily. More blessings, ministry and answered prayers in 2015. Happy New Year! 🙂

  34. Emily, keep writing! You are an inspiration to so many! Your purpose is grand and your gift is needed! I look forward to reading more from you! Infinite blessings to you, Love! 🙂

  35. Emily! 🙂
    I feel so privileged and blessed to have been connected by a very awesome and God-centered woman. Thank you. 🙂

    Looking forward to read all your posts,
    Mel ♥

  36. Wow, what a beautiful story! I so admire you for making such a miraculous change. Sharing your life I’m sure isn’t easy, but what a blessing to others for them to see how God can step in and change our lives when we allow him. I’m looking forward to reading more of your story!

  37. Glad you stopped in and let me know you read some of my blog Marla! I’m glad I found your blog. I enjoyed the post you recently wrote about wanting to give your husband your best love. It’s good that you realized the importance of honoring him in that way. As a woman that has raised a child without the support of a husband I am sometimes astonished how little some women appreciate the blessing of a mate. I know there are challenges to being married too though, especially if you have kids, that’s one of the reasons I have been settled with going it alone (most of the time). I love reading and listening to married women speak of their relationships and what they are learning. I am taking mental notes because I do believe that one day God will bring someone into my life. Hopefully I can learn from others mistakes and through wisdom they have gleaned.

  38. I don’t want to be in that state again. I tend to use more of more brain capacity than the average person anyway, and I am sure I would be able to see more things that I don’t want to see, but I don’t want that. I put my brain to good use, with it’s creative capacity. My brain never stops thinking, hardly ever. It’s like a running commentary all of the time. My Grandma was diagnosed with an overactive brain and that’s what I have, but it allows me to see things that others can’t see, in a creative thinking, intuitive, this is what will happen next way.

  39. Yes, I predream much of what happens in my life. It’s not the dream
    creating the future it’s just that dreams are tapping in to a realm not inhibited by time. It’s a parallel place. Dreams are seen in symbols so it makes sense that the future predicted would seem slightly different. I understand wanting to get out of the state of being consciously aware of the unseen realm. It’s a lot to take in and its not always clear what purpose it serves.

  40. Hi Emily, I have heard of people who become aware in dreams. I know when I wake up that I was only dreaming, but don’t think I have become aware in dreams and not sure I would want to. I have to be very careful as when I was younger, I used to dream and it used to come true in real life, but happen in a slightly different way, like my radar was off key. It frightened me. I didn’t like it because it blurred a sense of reality with dreaming and it was ongoing. I choose to get out of that state and I chose not to see things any more, if I can help it. I don’t want to see ghosts or dead people. I know people who can see these.

  41. I wish I could go on so little sleep! I like to get 8 hrs but rarely do. If I end up sleeping less than 7 and I feel like I am dragging through the day. I understand suffering from nightmares. I haven’t had a dream of being chased in years and years that I recall but definitely have had other disturbing dreams. Although I am able to decide a lot of my dreams sometimes I have no clue what they are about. Often, the meaning will come to me slowly. I remember my dreams, up to 6 or 7 a night so I simply don’t have time to ponder them all everyday. I plan to one day write a book on dream healing from a Christian perspective to share some of what I have learned on how to use our dreams to decipher areas of our lives and hearts that need understanding and healing. The subconscious mind is complex and then when you add the spirit realm into the mix, who could claim to be an expert? But I have discovered some interesting things about my dreams that others may relate to and benefit from. If I was to assign meaning to being chased I would first wonder if it is not about a fear that is not being faced. Once, many years ago, when I was being chased by three people or maybe it was a person with three heads, I can’t recall for certain, but I do remember facing them and demanding to know their names. Again, not completely remembering (although I have it written down somewhere) the names were something along the lines of doubt and worry. They had a poopy diaper and expected me to clean up their —-. Lol Typical! Worry and doubt always send me running as if I am in real danger but when faced for what they truly are I see all they really do is leave messes for me to clean up. Have you tried any lucid dreaming techniques? Perhaps if you could become aware in the dream you could face what is chasing you and find out what it is?

  42. Hi Emily, it’s great to learn more about you and your calling, and very brave of you to share it with us. I have suffered with nightmares since young, and would prefer not to sleep at all if I had the choice. I think sleeps a waste of time, but I have to get some. I have insomnia but it’s good to be able to stay awake to do the tons of work I have to do. I prefer working at night. I am employed and self-employed. If I sleep from 4am to midday, then I can often get good quality sleep, but can’t do that much because of my day job. I often go to bed at 2am and have to be up just after 7.30am or earlier. I have dreams of people chasing me and trying to kill me a lot. I manage to keep running and get away, but it’s not nice. I can’t run forever.

  43. No need to apologize! I know how busy life gets 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your post! Thank you for your encouraging comments. Have an amazing weekend 🙂

  44. I apologize for the delayed response! I feel honored by your nomination and plan to make time this weekend to follow the instructions for accepting this award. Your blog is very inspiring as well and I look forward to reading more about your family, adventures and walk with God.

  45. Hello!! I want to tell you that your blogs are AWESOME!!, I have a link on my page that directs to your blog because I nominated you for the Liebster Award!! HAHAHA ^^^^^^^, I see you have already been nominated though…..I am still keeping you on my “Liebster Award” post anyways because your content is amazing! To see it please visit:http://inspirebyfaith.com/2014/10/09/liebster-award/. God Bless and keep blogging!!

  46. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I receive your blessing for a happy peaceful life. May God bless you. I have enjoyed poking around your blog a bit; very wise and thoughtful posts.

  47. The first sentence “I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.”, that shows your faith in Jesus. very inspiring about page. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog. Prayerful wishes for happy and peaceful life.

  48. I appreciate the encouragement to keep my eyes on Christ. Yes, it is challenging to live as a single mother but it also is training me to realize that in Christ is all I need.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing the love! I pray you have a blessed, prosperous and joyful week.

  49. Hi Emily! I lived with my brother-in-law’s daughter, whose name is Emily, for 15 years and we loved each other dearly, so that name resonates deeply with me. I wish to thank you very much for visiting my blog. Also, let me encourage you to look to Christ because living as a single woman must be a very challenging experience, but Christ’s love is sufficient.

  50. Thank you for sharing some of what God has been doing in your life too. I stopped dream journaling last year as per Gods instructions because I was focusing too much on what I was dreaming. It is good that you recongnize prayer and the study of Gods word as the most important guides. I think it may just be for this season in my life that I don’t journal my dreams. I do still ponder them though and glean insight and understanding. I look forward to reading more of your blog post and welcome you to stop in here as time permits as well. Have a blessed day!

  51. Dearest Emily ~ Your testimony will help deliver many who are lost. It was beautiful in how God redeemed you from the life of destruction. I also have been given many dreams and visions throughout the years in which I journal. Many of them have come about and others God only wants me to pray for. However, what was given, it was timely and pointing to intercession when needed. I am thankful that God uses this as a way to speak to me but I also know to rely on His Word and prayer to guide me in the areas that I need to grow in and learn from. Thank you for sharing your life and what God has done! God bless you!

  52. Good timing on your comment. I gave my testimony publicly for the first time a couple of weeks ago to a group from our church that meets at a woman’s shelter that I just took over leading. Every week I have been sending out an email about the upcoming meeting and one of the women that was at my testimony & hasnt been back since emailed me back today and asked me to remove her from the email list. I was struggling with a little bit of rejection & very briefly, like just for one fleeting second, I though to myself that I was never sharing my testimony publicly again. I realized that it was pointless to concern myself with her reasons or allow the experience to stop me from doing what God asks me to. I hope sharing my story will inspire people but I can’t be moved whatever response I get. It helped me to think about my motives.

  53. What a cool comment! I hadn’t thought about finding a ‘voice’ for my writing before. I do love to write though and am enjoying motivating myself to write more often since having started this blog. Thank you for taking the time to encourage me. I truly appreciate it.

  54. Emily Rose, There is but one word to capture my response to your incredibly uplifting testimony. “WOW!” What a story. What a transformation God has done in your life. And what a GOOD WRITER! You have embraced a writing style that embellishes your testimony. I know you are writing from your heart, but God is holding the pen. I hear God all the way through your testimony. You will have an incredible impact on the lives of those who read your story and learn how God turned your life from a mess into a message.
    Thank you for dropping by my blog as well (For His Glory). I’ll be following you now as well and look forward to watching your new life and your testimony unfold for your readers. I remain in touch with several folks who experienced some unspeakable abuse. I’d like to share with you personally some of my experiences reading and writing about their sagas. How God took them right where they were and transformed them in unbelievable ways. If you’d be interested, my email is stevesaw@gmail.com I’d like to hear from you. In the mean time I hope you’ll drop in on For His Glory again soon. And I’ll be waiting to read more of you as well. Take care and God bless. You are AWESOME in God’s eyes.

  55. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment with kind words. I somehow just came across your comment even though I have been on WordPress several times this week. I apologize for the delayed response. I hope your having a great week.

  56. Very inspirational testimony Emily. I look forward to reading more of what our Awesome God is doing in and through you, may He continue to use you in mighty ways my sister. LOVE, GRACE, PEACE!!!

  57. Praise God! I love to hear how God is working in people’s lives and how He meets us where we are. I appreciate your stopping and reading my blog. It sounds like you have found a woman that fears God. Glad to hear that. Blessings to you both. I hope you have found a church home that you can begin building relationships with other Christians. I have been disappointed by other believers in my life too. I don’t rely as much on other people as I once did and I think it cushions the blow when the inevitable happens and others let me down in some way. Even Jesus said he didn’t trust Himself to man because He knows them. 🙂

  58. A very inspirational story, Emily. I will be following your blog, Not too long ago, I had a falling out with the church and ended up in the New Age movement, tarot cards and all. My soon-to-be wife told me quite clearly ‘Not in this house!’ I got rid of everything but was still lost. I then found Christ because I knew that’s where I belonged. It’s been quite a journey but it’s a decision I don’t regret.

  59. Rolain, I receive the kind words and affirmations with gratitude! I have been praying for God to send encouragers into my life and He had been putting it on my heart to start this blog. I see now part of His purpose was to answer that prayer. Words have a powerful impact to build up or tear down. I love to interact with people that use their words to build others up. Thank you!

  60. Hi Emily.
    Thank you for the follow.
    Your story is an amazing one. Yes things may not have started out like that but God has being turning it around and this is just the beginning. He has just started on you. He has great plans for your son and He has great plans for you!
    I am looking forward to reading more of what you have to share….God bless you Emily.


  61. You have a gift as well. I’m glad we are following each other’s blogs. You have some pretty powerful dreams and visions.

  62. You have a very powerful testimony. There are many who will be blessed by where you have been and where the Lord has brought you. I can see you standing on a rock and pulling others up onto the Rock with you.

  63. It means a lot to hear that my story inspires someone and gives me more confidence to continue to share. Thank you for reading and for your kind response.

  64. Yes, it has been a difficult even with Goda great grace sustaining me and still is at times but its definitely easier than my old lifestyle. At least now my suffering is producing something if value in my life.

    I receive your blessing for Forrest and myself! Thank you and I pray abundant blessing and healing to you too.

  65. I think it’s ballet, but I’m not sure. Thanks for the follow. Some follows seem to come from marketing efforts, but I am encouraged by those that come from people who genuinely seem to be seeking to walk with the Lord. You certainly seem to fit that category! Blessings on you.

  66. Emily, you are a remarkable woman! I can’t imagine how difficult it was to turn your life around even with divine intervention. I am excited to read more of your inspirational posts.
    I wish you and your son many blessings <3
    Thanks for the follow, I will be following you, too!

  67. I appreciate you taking the time to write these kind and encouraging words! It is definitely time for me to start sharing more about my past with others.

    On August 6th I will be giving parts of my testimony to a group at the local woman’s shelter where I now meet weekly for a Christian small group meeting. I am excited and a little nervous.

  68. Emily,
    How right you are : God promises in Romans 8:28 to use e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g for the good, to redeem it all. Even the most tragic stuff of this life. I want to encourage you in your ministry endeavors! Your story brought tears to my eyes; and yet I celebrate how much God has changed your situation and changed you.
    Please keep writing, keep sharing. I know you feel vulnerable, but I have learned in the past almost three years of weekly blogging that it’s those heartbreaking experiences, those shameful experiences, those humbling situations that God uses the most to help others.
    In my speaking I have realized I must get real. It’s terrifying to get out in front of women and throw out my imperfections; yet that helps us strike common ground and to be encouraged that if God could use even me, then He can (and does!) do great things for anyone!
    I am so excited you took this step of faith and began your blog. I will be praying for you and excited to see what you’ll write about next!
    Love in Christ, Stefanie Lynn
