Hey, I’m Emily, and I am so glad you’re here!
People living with and fighting chronic illnesses are warriors.
They are some of the most disciplined people I have ever met. They know what they need and work with everything in them to get it, even when their body fails them over and over again.
As determined as those living with chronic illnesses may be, they are also misunderstood by the world around them.
Why are they always tired? Why don’t they socialize like they used to? Why are they such picky eaters?
What those around them may not understand is that these chronic illness warriors would give almost anything to have energy again, to be fun around people, and to go out for a slice of pizza instead of sticking to their regimented diet.
The chronically ill are forced to live their lives differently than the average healthy person, with the hope that these lifestyle choices will benefit them in the long-run and give them sustained energy to enjoy the time they have right now.
The life of a chronically ill person can be a lonely one.
If this is you – if you are suffering from a chronic illness – then I want you to know that you are not alone.
This blog is for you. It’s a place where you can come, feel understood, and find hope to get you through your most difficult days.
Please know that you’re seen. You’re heard. And you’re loved.

While I no longer blog regularly in this space, feel free to download a copy of my ebook to get on my email list. This is where I send out lots of helpful information from a Christian perspective with tools to help you live beyond illness.
