Becky Emerick is an author, counselor, actress, and home schooling mom of four children. She likes to write whenever she has a moment that isn’t occupied with answering questions, wiping down the counters, and fighting laundry.
Becky spends most of her days teaching the kids, playing board games, cleaning up after everyone, and feeding growing tummies. In her free time, she loves to read, browse creative ideas on Pinterest, and feed treats to her chickens. Date nights with her fireman husband/high school sweetheart are essential on the calendar! Laughing is just about her favorite hobby – a good joke or well-played story is always encouraged!
She has published two books: Duncan’s Journey, a children’s devotional through Psalm 23, which she wrote for her own kids; and Surrender, a coming-of-age historical fiction novel set in the early 1800’s. She has also published numerous devotionals and guides for families.
As a drama director for College Park Church for fifteen years, she wrote, directed, and acted in dozens of plays and dramas for Sundays and special services. She also directed a Worship Arts Camp for children three summers in a row, where they work all week to perform a full-length musical.
Becky has been blogging since 2007 on her own website and has been a guest-blogger on other sites numerous times. She covers topics such as creative parenting, book reviews, prayer ideas, and practical theology.
Becky is a certified Biblical Counselor with ACBC. She believes that Jesus, God’s Son, died and rose again to save us from our sins, and that the Word of God has been given to us to show us how to live as children of His kingdom.
Writing and Acting have been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. At six years old, Becky would charge the neighbor kids 10 cents to come and see her plays on her parents’ deck. She wrote her first novel in sixth grade, and her English teacher had the kindness and patience to read it.
Becky hopes to inspire others to apply the Word of God in their lives in practical, yet creative, ways.
