Emily Freeman took her first creative writing class in high school and has loved writing ever since. She finds great joy in studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her deep love of the scriptures comes from a desire to find their application in everyday life. She is the author of several books, including The Ten Virgins; 21 Days Closer to Christ; and The Promise of Enough. There is nothing Emily enjoys more for breakfast than a bowl of vanilla ice cream, raspberries, and chocolate chips. Other favorites include parades, vacations, firework displays, and going for a long walk with a good friend. Emily and her husband, Greg, live in Lehi, Utah, with their four children, whom she adores.
Written on Our Hearts: Invitations from the Old Testamentby Emily Freeman
If you have ever found the Old Testament intimidating, you're not alone. The less-familiar history, themes, and language, coupled with the length of the book, make it a difficult read for many. But author Emily Freeman loves the Old Testament, and as she shares some of the wonderful things she has learned in her study of this book of scripture, you will find yourself coming to love it too.
Written on Our Hearts is not a commentary or an intensive doctrinal study. Instead, Emily writes about the stories of the Old Testament, stories of trusting and overcoming and enduring and believing. Within these stories are all kinds of applications for the challenges we face today.
"There will come a moment in your life," the author says, "when you or someone you love will struggle with a challenge so great you will wonder how you will make it through. In that moment you will long to better understand the Savior's role as the Deliverer, and to do that you must go to the book of scripture that describes that role the best—the Old Testament."

Emily Freeman is one of my most favorite scriptural authors. She has a way of explaining scriptures and helping me see how they apply to my life right now that resonates within my heart. I know that she has personally gone through some very trying times and it is through those times that she turned to the Lord and to the scriptures and gained the insight she has. How blessed we are that she is willing to share that knowledge and love with us. All of us have challenges, trials and adversity! We may "face obstacles, danger, oppression, and injustice." There will be times of sadness, anger, fear, and despair. Of one thing we can be sure...the Lord will deliver us! We can learn to trust in the Lord like Gideon, Nehemiah, Hezekiah, Micah, and Moses and others from the Old Testament. We can "draw strength" and courage from their stories that are found and explained in this amazingly wonderful book! We can have the love of the Lord "written on our hearts" This book is a treasure to be studied and pondered especially as we study the Old Testament in Sunday School next year. This book will help you find your deliverance!
