Hi, I’m Emily Wickham: a wife and mother, daughter and sister. I’m also a friend and mentor, author, speaker, and Bible teacher—an ordinary woman, saved by grace through faith in Christ, beloved of God.
I grew up in Northern Virginia as the youngest daughter of Christian parents, and I started college in 1987 at Virginia Tech. I met my future husband, Mark, at Intervarsity Christian Fellowship before classes even began. Married since 1989, God has blessed us with four adult children, two daughters-in-love, and a home in North Carolina. He is so good.
As a women’s ministry leader from 2001-2004, I realized my love for teaching the Bible. God prompted me to write Reaching for Righteousness: Life Applications from the Book of Esther (Pleasant Word, April 2009), which is now available in Spanish. God is primarily using Alcanzando la Justicia in Central America and Mexico.
God has enabled me to minister in various ways such as directing retreats, facilitating small groups, teaching, and sharing radio devotions. I’ve hosted and taught at the Connecting with Christ Conference, and I traveled with a ZMI Family Ministries International team to Nicaragua, where I introduced Alcanzando la Justicia. I wrote “Recipes for Life” for Sophie Woman’s Magazine from January 2012 – August 2016, connecting favorite recipes to life stories and spiritual truths.
LifeWay has published my devotions since 2015 in Journey Magazine, and HomeLife Magazine also has included some of my articles. I write ministry updates and various posts on my Heart Stirrings blog, plus I teach at women’s events and mentor younger women the Lord leads my way. YouTube and Facebook provide platforms for me to share Bible-based videos, and I’m grateful for the reach God has given me through these venues.
My goals for 2022 include increasing in boldness, growing my speaking ministry, writing more articles for publication, and expanding my blog readership. I continue to seek the Lord’s will regarding these pursuits, knowing His plans for me might look different (as 2021 proved).
Proclaiming Him to Women ministers to:
- Women who seek a relationship with God through JESUS
- Women who desire to know, love, and imitate JESUS
- Women who delight in Scripture
Thanks for taking time to learn more about me and the ministry God has called me to fulfill. “May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ” (2 Thessalonians 3:5).
