About Emily P. Freeman

Adults make over 35,000 decisions every day. Many are second nature. I’m here for the ones that aren’t. Emily is an author, a podcast host, and a curious listener dedicated to helping you create space for your soul to breathe so you can discern your next right thing in love.

If you’re feeling stuck over a certain decision right now, you’ve weighed the options but just can’t see things clearly yet, she’s created a podcast and now a book called The Next Right Thing.

Emily is a wife, mom, author and podcast host. She’s also a founder of Hope*Writers.

Rachel and Mary Scott had the absolute PLEASURE of interviewing Emily for today’s episode. Ironically, Emily was a name put on the dream list when we first started Behind the Bliss and it feels a bit uncanny for this to be happening today. If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen us post a few (ok WAY more than a few) of our favorite episodes from Emily’s podcast, The Next Right Thing. Thankfully for all of us who glean so much from her podcast, Emily wrote a book also called The Next Right Thing that releases next Tuesday, April 2. We got advanced copies of the book and devoured it just like we do her podcast every single week. Enjoy!

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
