This year’s guest will be Emily Hartman. Since marrying Ed, a widower and a pastor with four small children, Emily’s life has been anything but ordinary. Adopting the kids when she was 24 years old, ministering alongside her husband in Kosciusko, Mississippi where she was raised, and then moving with their four children to serve with Mission to the World in Brasov, Romania supporting nationals to plant churches, she’s lived the gospel reality that our stories are both broken and beautiful. And it’s her delight to help women look to Jesus as they wrestle through this tension in their own lives.

Now enjoying the “party of two” (empty nest), Emily and Ed continue their crazy, complicated, and beautiful journey together based in Jackson, MS, where Ed is on staff at First Presbyterian Church. Emily works in leadership development, as a trainer, and coach with Parakaleo, a ministry that provides gospel resources and community to the wives of church planters. Alongside Ed, Emily enjoys traveling and exploring other cultures, almost any outdoor activity, and sharing life with their four adult children, their spouses and 4 adorable grandkids.
