My days are full of tickles, laughs, and epic messes, and lots of learning alongside my kids. I wouldn’t change one thing about this season, challenges and heartaches included. I love Jesus and hope that my life speaks of His transformative work in me. I’ve kept this blog for many years now (formerly as LightandLoveliness.com) and I still find joy in sharing my words here.
Thanks for taking a few moments to share in my journey.
Love to all,
Emily Sue Allen
