Jesus Came to Give Us Life

Hi, I’m Emily Wickham: a wife and mother, daughter, sister, and friend. I’m also a writer for Lifeway’s Journey Magazine as well as a podcaster, youtuber, and author—an ordinary woman, saved by grace through faith in Christ and 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.

Publications and More

LifeWay has published my devotions since 2015 in Journey Magazine, and Homelife Magazine has included some of my articles. I am a contributing writer to Lifeway Women’s Bible study, Grateful: Giving Thanks to God in All Things, and I write devotional posts plus ministry updates on my Heart Stirrings blog. I also share Bible prophecy messages on YouTube.

My Podcast

God enabled me to launch Indestructible Life in October 2022, a podcast where women discover the life JESUS is and treasure the life God’s Word gives. This ministry continues to grow, reaching women in various places. It’s available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more. Please visit my Podcast page to hear the latest messages.

My Bible Study

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, which is out of print in English but available in Spanish. God is primarily using Alcanzando la Justicia in Central America and Mexico.

Ministry Areas

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.

I’m so grateful for the writing and speaking opportunities God provides. May the name of Jesus be lifted high.

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).

In Christ’s Love,
