Welcome!!!

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Emily and I am so excited that you are reading this. :)  I decided to start my blog because I have so many things that I want to share with people and this seemed to be the most effective way of doing it...

I live in NSW with my parents, one brother and my six sisters.  We home-school and are very blessed to have access to Christ-centered curriculums that guide us in honouring God in all we do.  On my blog, to protect their identies, I refer to my younger siblings as Jess, Grace, Joy, Elise, James, Rose and Annie.  Jess is 18 and Annie is three years old.

You may be wondering why I called my blog Amity.  Well, amity is an old English word meaning 'friendship'.  To me it represents harmony, love and encouragement as well, and that is exactly what I want for my blog.  I am blessed if what I have written or posted has made your day or encouraged you right when you needed it, or even just made you laugh!  Oh, and please feel welcome to leave a comment under any post - I really love hearing your thoughts and feelings.  I will try and answer you ASAP.  :)

Have a blessed day and I pray you are encouraged as you read.  As Bach said - 'To the Greater Glory of God!'

My love to you in Christ,

Emily  xxx

  1. Hi Emily! :)
    We stumbled across your blog just now and had to leave a little note. :)
    There are also eight of us kids! :) We are homeschooled as well and love it!
    Just curious, but what religion are you?
    So nice to "meet" you!

  2. Hi Hannah, Ruth and Sarah!

    I am so excited to meet you! I get thrilled to meet anyone, especially home schoolers from large families! :)

    In answer to your question, I am a Christian and attend an AOG church with Australian Christian Churches. In saying that however, I would happily be part of any church that preaches the Bible, lives the Gospel and glorifies God.

    So glad you stopped by!

    God bless you all,

    Emily
