About Emily M.

(Poetry Board) graduated from BYU in Comparative Literature, but it was long enough ago that most of what she learned has leaked out. She would like to mention other hobbies or interests, but to be honest she spends most of her free time reading (although she does enjoy attempting yoga). She used to blog at hearingvoices.wordpress.com. For now, though, Segullah is her only blogging home, and it's a good one.

  1. I cannot express in proper words the impact you ladies have on my life. Each time I read an essay I am lifted up by the words from the women of Segullah.

    I am at a searching point, a divide in the road so to speak, the words of Angela reached out and truly spoke to me. I am not seeking a testimony. It is beauty I am trying to refine. And Angela, your wonderful prose helped guide me as if they were just for me.

    Thank you. Each and every one of you.

  2. Thank you, Chronicler! It is wonderful for all of us at Segullah to hear that our efforts have touched someone for good. I’m glad you enjoyed my essay. I am even happier that the larger work we do here is of value for you.
