Not gonna hack my wife’s blog, but I will brag

Allume Conference 2012Apparently if I hack my wife’s blog with this post, I could win an iPad.

I’m all for a challenge. And I know this is in good fun. But I have no more interest in “hacking” into her blog than I have of her hacking into any of my blogs.

But I am excited about how God is using Allume in her life. It’s been wonderful to see her come alive in a renewed way as she’s prepared for Allume. I’m loving watching her continue to define herself and to trust that she already has discovered her voice. And that it’s a good voice.

Whether it is her wonderful 31 Day of Christmas Planning or her 5 Minute Friday experiments, or her post about making Roman shades for our room, she’s a gifted writer with a lot to offer the world.

Growing together

I married well. When we got married 17 years ago, we did it to minister together. Her explorations on her blog are helping us revisit the conversation of working together. I love the idea of us blogging together! (We’ve already played at that with the “he said, she said” experiments.)

It’s even more thrilling to think of us sharing the stage. In writing and in speaking, Emily helps people grow and become more of who they truly are.

She’s had it all along

We recently came across some writing she did for the family over a decade ago. Her writing makes our family richer. She was a great writer then too. But I love how getting ready to go to Allume seems to have renewed her confidence.

And it’s fun to be the one at home hearing about all the cool experiences he’s having!
