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

You may work in the church nursery on Sunday mornings. You may direct traffic.

But whether you’re in charge of attendance in your Sunday school class, counting the offering, filling… Read More »

Dear Perfect, I’m breaking up with you

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

Dear Perfect, I know we’ve been together for awhile, but the truth is, I’ve been cheating on you for quite some time. It’s not that I didn’t want things to work out between us; I really did! At the beginning of our relationship, I truly thought we’d be together forever. I assumed our connection would… Read More »

When you first hear God speak

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

I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting in the middle of my white, wrought iron daybed with the mauve comforter thrown haphazardly over the sheets. And I was crying my eyes out. I’ve heard Oprah call it “the ugly cry,” and that’s what it was. Eyes swollen. Nose red as Rudolph’s. My… Read More »

5 unlikely benefits of listening to the Bible

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

Several months ago, I completely re-engineered my Bible reading plan. One of the changes I implemented is that instead of just reading my Bible, I started listening to it as well. I have the YouVersion app installed on my Kindle, so whenever it’s time to read, I pull up the day’s passage, press the Play… Read More »

Is God small enough for you?

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

A few days after we returned from our 15-day, three-destination, 3,100-mile road trip, I spent an afternoon with the Lord and my journal reliving the evidence of His power and majesty that were evident daily on our vacation. [Photo: Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO] I could see Him in the sun’s early rays… Read More »

Who are you trying to please?

Author: Emily E. Ryan

The other day, I stumbled upon this verse by Paul: “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant” (Gal. 1:10 NLT). You know what word popped out at me the most? The word, obviously. It stuck out because,… Read More »

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 »

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.
