Welcome to my journey!

Hey! My name is Emily.


I’m married to a boy named Ian.  We’re pretty much different in every way, yet we happened to fall madly in love during the play “West Side Story” in the Spring of 1999.

We have a life that we are working on intentionally creating…with a huge focus on becoming debt free and living a life of wealth and abundance.

We have 4 children, 3 wonderfully happy and creative boys and 1 sharp as a whip girl. We are involved in the betterment of our community and strive to create a better future for our children. Specifically in the public education realm at the moment. This is evolving and ever changing.

We love music. We love travel. We love learning. But most of all, we love each other and are determined to create an intentional, abundant, life together. And you can read all about it on our blog. You can also follow us on Pinterest, where we curate loads of ideas on living a life of wealth and abundance (in all it’s forms!)

Want to know more? Well, I have a set of beliefs I live by.  They are:

  • I believe in Intentionality. I believe there is power in intentionally directing your thoughts, desires, hopes and beliefs towards what you want.
  • I believe in focusing on Strengths. I believe that taking the time and doing the work to understand what your strengths are, then emphasizing them and focusing on them in your daily life, will aide you in creating a fulfilling, joyful and effective life.
  • I believe seeking Joy in the Journey is vitally important. Learning to delight in our days, regardless of our challenges, trials and setbacks. Focusing on the joy, the good, instead of the negative and bad (which we ALL have) will produce more joy and goodness in our lives.
  • I believe in having an Abundance mentality. One of my mentors, Dr. Stephen Covey, is the first person who taught me about the Abundance mentality. Having an abundance mentality means you choose to believe there is more than enough for everyone. It takes courage to believe that you can have yours—and help others get theirs, and no one needs to take a loss.

I would LOVE it if you would join with me as I take on the daily task of living out my beliefs.

My goal is to inspire and guide as many women {and men, I won’t discriminate!} to live out the above beliefs and create a life that is INTENTIONALLY designed. To live a life of ABUNDANCE. To find JOY in your daily journey.
