My name is Emma Sweat. I am the wife of my wonderful husband, Steven. We will have been married for five years in September 2013. I am also the mommy of my two precious sons, Levi (27 months) and Ezra (born dec 2nd 2012) who is now in heaven with Jesus and the reason I chose to start blogging.You can read more about him on my Ezra's story page. We also now have new little one on the way, due Febuary 24th, and we pray every day that the Lord will let us keep this precious life. I am so blessed to be able to stay at home with my little man and give him kisses all day. (okay, so it involves a little more than just kisses) I love the little family that God has given to me. They bring me unspeakable amounts of joy!
I enjoy spending time with my family and extended family, singing, crafting, easy sewing projects, baking (much to my husbands delight), cooking, and taking long bubble baths with some red wine and dark chocolate. I do not enjoy cleaning, putting away clean laundry, unpacking a suitcase, or being cold. ;)

All four of us
This blog started because I wanted to create a place where I could process through my grief as I walk toward life again. I am a verbal processor so writing and talking and praying have been the best ways I have found to work through this insanely difficult time in my life. I make no claims to be a writer and I am certainly no grammar girl. I am most definitely a people pleaser and have needed to trust God with the fear of being judged as I put my lack of grammar skills out on display. But I see this as more of a place for me to express my thoughts and feelings and I do not want to limit myself anymore with a fear of being imperfect. Because, quite frankly, I am imperfect. Very imperfect. But I have a perfect God who has taken all of my imperfection upon Himself and made it new. Thanks be to Him!
I also wanted to create a place where I can share Ezra and his story with others. He had a short, but beautiful life that has changed me for the good in more ways than I knew I needed. And even though he is not here with us now, his little life points us back to the Lord constantly. And for that, I am grateful.
