Rev. Emily Flemming is an ordained Elder in the Mountain Sky Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC). Raised Southern Baptist in South Carolina, she came to United Methodism through a missionary church in Germany, where she lived for 12 years. Emily loves the mountains, music, travel, craft beer, and her friends and family around the world. A former corporate headhunter (MBA), German teacher (BA), and competitive tap dancer, Emily has many passions and even more energy. As solo pastor of First UMC of Windsor, Colorado, her heart and hands are full with ministry and her family: husband, Regis; daughter, Lillian; and son, Isaak. Writing is her retreat, and Emily is honored to share her experiences of healing from sexual assault in this, her first publication.
