Emily Anne is...

I am twenty-five years young, and I love the Lord with all my heart first and foremost! My aspiration every single day is to love the way He loves, and to reflect His spirit through my words and actions.  I grew up in a little town called Michigan City, Indiana, but I went to college and spent a lot of time in Mishawaka, Indiana. So I decided to move back not so long ago. I love it here!  I studied music and education at Bethel College, and I am currently getting ready to pursue my Masters degree in Counseling. I'm really excited about that! My main passions are children, families, mental & emotional heath, and the performing arts. I am STILL trying to figure out how to combine all of those passions together! Ha! I do hope to start a dance ministry through my church someday soon.


I wear this gorgeous, blue sapphire promise ring on my left hand, given to me by my loving boyfriend, John-David. {You may see a "guest post" from him now and then} We are excited to eventually be engaged and plan our forever future together.
By the grace of God, we grow stronger and closer together with each passing day. I love doing life with him! <3

I believe in being REAL...being GENUINE...
I believe that when sharing your heart, you should not hold back. Someone may need to hear your story. God CAN USE your stories, your struggles, your suffering, to bless someone else.
And that's what I hope to do here with this blog, Chirpings of a Little Sparrow.
{{Little Sparrow was a nickname given to me by my best friend}} 

What I do: I have the best job in the world! I teach dance! I have students as young as three years old, up through high school. I love ALL of the kids who come through my classes, and I love watching them grow and progress. They are the whole reason I am able to get up most days. 

My ultimate dream would be to have my own dance studio someday, or to start a dance ministry through my church Granger Community Church.  I'm also starting on a different career path to eventually become a school guidance counselor.

And just some random things:  I am a huge extrovert and I thrive off of being with people!  I am a ballet and contemporary dancer, and I still take classes to stay in shape.  I am inspired by Audrey Hepburn.  I also love Jane Austen and Downton Abbey.  I am addicted to coffee.  I'm attracted, like a moth to a flame, to anything lace or floral.  I cry during movies. I love hugs.  I sing in an incredible choir that I am super blessed to be a part of.  Oh...and I should have been born in a different time period ;))

  1. Hello lady! :)

    I'm from the Peony Project and I found your blog through a comment on another Peony's post!

    Saw that you were a performer and had to comment - it's always so exciting to see another actor on here :)

    Take care!

    1. Ah! Thank you so much, Grady! I've read your blog too and I love it! I hope we can get to know each other better :))
