Emily’s new life began in 2010 when she decided to stop trying to do things her way and surrendered her life to the Lord, so he could clean up the mess she made of it. Emily was connected to healing through ministry at HHIM in 2013 where her life was forever changed. After being healed, delivered, and set free Emily knew she had to tell the world about the wonderful goodness of God and about the power of the Holy Spirit to set them free too!
Emily is passionate about partnering with God to see people set free from the lies and oppression of the enemy and step into their authority as sons and daughters. She knows first-hand the transformative power of just one encounter with the Lord to change even the darkest of hearts!
