In church, in our women's group, we have a monthly newsletter that tells the announcements, the birthdays for the month and has a little spotlight on one of the women in the group. Last month I pulled out the flyer and to my surprise I was the spotlight sister. They had contacted Eric and he wrote up something about me, totally unknown to me; so now I could find out what my husband really thought of me and am going to share what he wrote.
"Emily grew up in Illinois. She is the fifth of six children, having three older brothers, an older sister and younger sister. Though she was born with a rare heart defect and had heart surgery twice by the age of five, her mother never treated her as sickly, but raised her the same as the rest of her siblings instilling in Emily an ability to succeed despite life's difficulties.
|My childhood home-though it was red when I was little|
|High School Graduation-I am second from right in case you couldn't tell ;)|
She succeeded in getting and education and finding a husband. She fell in love with a guy that was too tall for her and even worse from Utah (...gasp) both of which were on her list of things she did not want in a husband.
Emily and Eric met at the star of her second year at BYU. They were in the same student ward (church congregation) and quickly discovered that they had a class together. The started dating almost immediately and were married the following summer in the Chicago Illinois Temple.
She continues to share the gospel today through social media and her blog. She often will speak up on the Internet supporting truth and right even if it not the popular opinion of the day believing that truth and light are needed are needed on the Internet to combat the adversary.
Emily has a special ability to instantly make friends with everyone around her. She is a talented photographer, an outstanding mother dedicated to the success of all her children, a supportive and loving wife, and a joy to be around.
She enjoys reading a good book, watching movies, playing board and card games, crafting, refurbishing older furniture, playing games on her iPad, and hanging out with her family."
******************I must admit, I heisted sharing this, as obviously my husband is a bit bias, but I absolutely loved what he wrote about me and I want to live up to how he sees me; plus I want to have this documented forever in case I lose the newsletter; so now you know what my husband really thinks of me.
