Join me and my guest, author Emily A. Filmore to talk about conscious parenting and how to live with gratitude despite life's challenges.
As a mommy, author, speaker, artist, former licensed attorney, and wife, Emily has a very fulfilling and busy life despite the autoimmune disease that wracks her body! Emily and her husband, Scott, practice attachment parenting with their nine-year old daughter, Sage, and twenty-two year old nephew, Rickey.
Emily has four books and also writes for international publications of the topics of spirituality, parenting, and health. She and Laurie Lankins Farley co-authored the book, Conversations with God for Parents, with internationally best-selling author, Neale Donald Walsch.
Emily has lived with an autoimmune disease for the past twenty years and recently wrote a book about living a happy life in spite of her disease - The Marvelous Transformation: Living Well with Autoimmune Disease. She hopes her readers will understand that “chronic illness doesn’t have to lead to chronic unhappiness!” because while her health has prevented her from many typical experiences, such as working a full-time job, being as active as she would like, and living a "normal” life, through her positivity and gratitude (and a lot of naps) she has managed to live well anyway!
Emily also wrote two books in the With My Child series of illustrated children’s books, intended to help parents and children bond through every day activities.
Her hope is that her work will touch others in positive ways; and to inspire them to look for the gifts they are receiving in their own lives. www.emilyfilmore.com
