To begin, if you didn’t know my name is Embler and Simply Living is my lifestyle blog. I am a young Nigerian – American woman who loves people almost as much as I love helping shine a light in today’s darkness.
I was originally born in Nigeria but my family moved here when I was very young so I’ve lived in Houston for almost all of my life. I graduated with a bachelor’s in political science and a minor in legal studies last year but I definitely don’t plan on stopping there!
I was moved to start a blog for the purpose of showing people how wonderful being a Christian in this age can be, contrary to popular belief. It took me a long time to finally see the beauty in this walk but by God’s grace, I finally realized that the purpose for this religion is to follow Christ and not other Christians.
I enjoy shopping for bargains, taking pictures, eating, learning about other cultures and all the things that normal people do. I also love playing in makeup, dressing up, trying new restaurants, spending time with family and friends, etc. but I also know that my identity is not found in any of those things. Even if I never got a chance to try out a foreign meal or slay the make up game (God forbid lol), I will still be Embler and the joy of the Lord will still be my strength.
I believe in being who you are for the glory of God. Any profession or talent can be used to glorify God because guess what, your life is your ministry! Ministry shouldn’t only reside behind the four walls of a building, it should have the potential to reach people of all shapes and sizes, all over the world.
One day, I dream of being granted the opportunity to help free people of the mental battles that occur in their mind through the love of Christ. The “I can’ts” will soon be a thing of the past because with Christ NOTHING is impossible (if it’s His will). He has the power to sanctify and justify us if we allow Him to. But hey, you don’t have to take my word for it, I’ll just let you see that for yourself. 😏
By the way, I didn’t come here to preach to you but I did come here to speak life into your situation! Being saved doesn’t restrict you from looking awesome and living life to the fullest, it just calls for you to do it in a different way, a way appropriate for the children of the most high king!
And with that I hope you were able to get a little glimpse into who I am. But don’t worry you’ll definitely be seeing more of me!
See you later darlings.✌
