I’ve gone insane. Join me, won’t you?

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

Basically, my husband and I have gone insane. For months, we planned to spend our summer vacation at my family’s lake house on Lake Livingston. One week. Close to home. No frills. Relaxing fun. But somehow over the past few weeks, that plan has changed to: Two weeks. Few days at the lake. Road trip… Read More »

Do you ever out grow guilt?

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

Any time an email begins with, “My cousin gave me a copy of your book while we were at a funeral,” I know I have to keep reading. Is that a “thing” now, I wondered, and imagined pews of mourners passing down tissues and copies of my books during “I’ll Fly Away.” No, it’s not… Read More »

Categories: Emily's Posts

For several years now, my church has a tradition of celebrating July 4th at the cross on our campus with a huge picnic / baptism / concert / fireworks extravaganza. Thousands of people bring blankets, lawn chairs, wagons, umbrellas, food and cans of OFF for a laid-back night of thanking God for our freedom –… Read More »

The only books your family will need this summer

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

If you are the least bit familiar with The Chronicles of Narnia, it is probably because of the most popular of the seven books, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It’s the story that launched the series, and it’s held strong for over 60 years. Lucy. The White Witch. Aslan. The stone table. It… Read More »

What you’re up against

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

It really doesn’t matter how old or young you are. You still want to look fabulous. You want to drop or gain a few (or a lot of) pounds. You wish your hair was straighter or curlier or darker or lighter. If your eyes were a different color, that would be great. And your closet… Read More »

Do you need to SHOUT?

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Sometimes, we just need to SHOUT about what the Lord is doing in our lives! Why? Because other people need to hear it! When others see God’s hand upon your life, it encourages them in their own lives. So, don’t keep it a secret! Share it with us! What is God whispering in your ear?… Read More »

Your job as a wedding guest

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

Over the years, I’ve had a part in about a dozen weddings, not including my own. I’ve been cast as a flower girl, a guest book attendant, a cake server, a bridesmaid, a maid of honor and a matron of honor. I may have even lit candles one time; I’ve lost track. There was a… Read More »

Moms’ Night Out: A Must-See Movie

Author: Emily E. Ryan

About once a month, I get together with my Bunco group. Only, the truth is, we haven’t actually played Bunco in about five years. But we still call it Bunco night because I guess it sounds less selfish and needy than what it really is – MOMS’ NIGHT OUT! So last week, for Bunco Moms’… Read More »

That time I had coffee with Jon Acuff

Last week, my husband and I had the opportunity to go on a one-day retreat in Brookshire, Texas. The event was mainly for those who serve as communications leaders and directors in churches (like my husband does), but I attended as well because 1) As a staff wife, I’m in church communications by association, 2)… Read More »
