How does someone survive the overwhelmingly HARD? How does someone trust God in life AND death? With miracles AND tragedies? With the wonderful AND excruciating?

Emily Freeman is a wife (to her pastor-husband Jeremy Freeman) and mama of seven, who—despite having to bury her precious 7-year-old son, as well as fight for the life of her teenage son—can still proclaim, “The Lord was with us, one day at a time.”

“Every day we have to let go of our own dreams and desires and trust that God’s plan is better.”  —Emily Freeman

No matter what type of “hard” you’re facing at this exact moment (and we KNOW there’s plenty to choose from), we could all use reminders of God’s nearness and love. We’d love for you to join us at The Messy Table.
