Two years (to the month) after Emma’s light nearly went out, it’s now shining brighter than ever. And Emma’s light is about to spread even further ☀️ I have almost no words for this full circle moment. Just THANK YOU to all those of you who helped make Sunshine in Her Soul a reality! Thank you for being part of our story and part of God’s bigger plan God to take what the enemy meant for evil and instead, use it for GOOD! We pray this book helps impact little lives for the better and we can’t wait to see what He has in store!

Emma illustrated and formatted this book at age 18 and I couldn’t be happier or more proud to see her talents being used for such an important and meaningful purpose. God has made it clear she has a BIG calling on her life and she is joyfully following where He leads! I know this is just the beginning of great things to come for her and God’s plans to turn her trials into her testimony!

Sunshine In Her Soul was born out of my experience raising Emma and helping her through recovery from life threatening depression.

In Sunshine in Her Soul, we follow Emma as she shares her light and later loses sight of where it came from. She thinks that if she helps enough people, her light would grow brighter on its own, but instead, it just gets dimmer and dimmer. She falls into a pattern of striving in her own strength. 

Little by little, she gives her light away until one day it’s nearly gone and darkness begins to overtake her. Emma ultimately realizes that she can’t live without the light she was created to have, and she learns that God is the real source of her inner light – not her.

Our prayer is for this book to help with conversations about resiliency and identity between parents and their kids at early ages.
