Hi, I'm Emily.
I loved music and sport at school and wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. But then I discovered that I had a serious illness. I needed lots of operations which changed my life forever. Suddenly my life was going to be very different to the one I had planned. Would I still be able to trust God?
I wrote a diary to help me remember what happened, how I felt, and how God helped me. I hope it might help you to see how God is with you too.
P.S. It's alright if you read my diary, but I don't want anyone else to see it, OK?
Written as diary entries, children can see first-hand how Emily learnt to trust God in all her circumstances and learn that even though life might not work out as expected, God always has a plan.
