Emmy Blakely

Emmy is the driving force behind the Choose Joy Event.

After 7 years of struggling through secondary infertility {they have a biological son Beau who is 11}, Emmy and her husband adopted their daughters Penelope in 2011 and Georgia in 2013. Through her entire experience with infertility she felt like there was a much bigger reason that God was allowing this suffering in her life. She is a person that will share her story with anyone that will listen, and has felt that God has been calling her to share this experience in a big way.

Last year's event was one of the best days of her life, and she is so excited to watch as God pulls it together once again. She is blessed and humbled by the other women that have chosen to be a part of Choose Joy.

Emmy is a stay-at-home-mom who loves Jesus, her family, and all things paper... in that order.  When she is not running her children around town, she enjoys cooking, eating, and hosting dinner parties {do you sense a theme???}.  She occasionally finds time to blog at It's Just Emmy.

She loves sharing her story with other women, and her greatest hope is that she can encourage others to love God's plan for their life, even when it doesn't match up with their own.  She believes that His way truly is always the best way.
