In a world full of filters and facades, it’s hard to find genuine people who are really true to who they are. Emily Lisenbey is as real as it gets. She is honest and wise beyond her years. She is loyal and doesn’t compromise her beliefs or morals for anyone or anything. She is the epitome of beauty and grace. She gives the best and most honest advice and tells you what you need to hear instead of only what you want to hear. Everything she does, she does wholeheartedly. She is truly led by the Lord in every aspect of her life and it is an honor to consider her my best friend.
I feel like I’m doing a Yelp review.
My experience with Emily has lasted about 7 years. Oftentimes it’s been a 5-star experience, and 60% of the time its been a 4-star experience every time. I’ve always respected Emily because I feel that she has always been honest with me. With Emily, what you get is what is real. She is the same person, regardless of who she’s with. She comes from an incredible family and they have always been so good to us. Emily carries strong values and impeccable character. That’s the 5-star review. The 4-star review would be that she’s a little blunt for those of you whose feelings are hurt easily, and she does not have much sympathy for stupid...but who does? All jokes aside, there really isn’t a more genuine person in this world.
There are some people who come into your life that you know are sent from God. Emily is one of those people in my life. She’s been more than a friend to me, she’s my sister. Not only is she incredibly talented as a singer, musician, leader, teacher, and speaker, she is anointed. The anointing that rests on her life is the real, old fashioned, Power, that breaks yokes and changes the atmosphere of each room she walks in. It’s my prayer that this blog blesses you, as you get to know Emily and as you get to know Jesus, who is truly at the heart of all she does.
To know Emily is to love her. I have had the privilege of being friends with Emily for several years now, and my friendship with her has been nothing short of fruitful and full of laughter. She’s encouraging, kind, honest, and gentle but with a little bit of sass! She’s constant, genuine, and makes life fun. I am so proud to call her my friend and so proud of the hard work she has put not only into her blog but into everything she works towards. Thank you for being a great friend and for constantly inspiring those around you. Love you sister!

Emily has a heart for the Lord and has been one of the best friends I have ever had! Because of her, I have found my church home and a whole new church family! She is encouraging, honest, and her heart of worship is shown everywhere that she goes! This blog shows her heart and her love for others! As you read this blog you will see the strong, encouraging, and passionate woman that she is! Emily, thanks for being my best friend and a light to everyone you meet!
If you asked me what I think about Emily I’d have a lot to say. Some might say she is bossy, and I would 100% agree with that. She no doubt says what’s on her mind and is to the point, but she always means well. She is by far the worst at texting. She consumes more Taco Bell and Dr. Pepper than anybody I know. To say she is competitive is an understatement, she doesn’t like to lose though she’s pretty good at it in my opinion. She is a talented musician and singer, and don’t dare talk trash about Dolly or Reba in front of her. She is someone who loves God and is passionate about serving Him. Emily is all these things, plus she is a great friend. She genuinely cares, she will stick her neck out for you, and put your needs over her own. Anyone would be blessed to count Emily as their friend.
Emily is one of a kind. The sweetest, most caring, thoughtful, overall best friend someone could ask for. I’ve known this girl for the majority of my life (for real like preschool) and the memories we have shared together can never be beat! She is the type of person that if you are struggling or just needing prayer, you call her because she will do it and not just tell you she did. God shines through her everyday and she stays faithful in her relationship with him! Emily, I love you and I am SO proud of you for being the wonderful person that you are. Thank you for being a role model to me and everyone else.
I’ve known Emily since I was her big sister in cheerleading while we were in junior high and high school. She has always been the most genuine, outgoing, and fun person. It has been such a privilege getting to see her blossom into the amazing, Godly young woman she is today. Even at such a young age, she is wise and full of advice, whether you want to hear it or not. Her words will bless you, challenge you, and inspire you as they have for me so many times before.
Passionate, loving, and graceful are a few of the MANY words that I can describe Emily as. She has a true heart of gold and her love for God is very evident in her daily walk! She can memorize scripture better than anyone I know and this girl can SING!! As you read her blogs you will get a glimpse of her genuine beauty (and an occasional glimpse of utter bluntness; which is needed in today’s world). I pray you find her blogs as a help and blessing to your life as they do mine. Emily will go far in life & I’m glad to have a front row seat to cheer her on!
I’ve known Emily since she was just a wee one. She has always been the most outspoken spit fire she is today. She’s talented, funny, smart, giving, loyal, passionate and a true friend. She makes me feel like I need to be a better person. She inspires me daily, encourages more than most, and loves me and my family like her own. She is a blessing to everyone she knows and is truly used by God. No one is quite like you Emily!
Emily has been apart of my life since we were both infants and she has impacted my life, along with others, in so many ways. Ever since she was little she was a natural born leader. You never had to worry about her wavering in her path or giving into temptations. She’s the type of person who walks into a room and the energy radiates off of her. Emily is also one of the most determined individuals that I know. Once she sets her mind to something she will achieve it and there’s no question about that. Emily’s blog consists of a section where she interviewed people in her life that are strong women and personally I feel as if Emily embodies the characteristics that were elaborated on throughout those interviews. To know Emily is to know a kind hearted, genuine, and strong individual who will undoubtedly be there for you whenever you’re in need.
