My name is Emily Leuck, and I was born and raised here in Franklin, TN. After living overseas as a missionary for a few years and meeting my husband there, we returned to the Nashville area and I taught Kindergarten for 4 years. I am now a stay-at-home mom with our precious 2.5 year old,Harper! I love opportunities to serve and even more so love when the service is furthering the work and name of Jesus!
How you became involved with Faithfully Restored: My husband first heard of Faithfully Restored while in Bible Study with both of the Jamie’s husbands and told me about it initially. Then, as I’ve been walking a very hard season of two consecutive miscarriages, I was blown away by the impact a care package from FR had on me. I had lots of friends loving me well, but this package was extra special since it came from people I barely knew but who felt like they “saw me”. It made me want to get more involved with FR and jump on board with their mission!
Favorite volunteer project so far: I loved dropping off beautiful floral arrangements and care packages to local women with my daughter! It was neat to imagine the joy of each woman opening her door to find such a thoughtful gift! FR makes women feel so cared for and loved even past the initial “hurt”—it was a joy to be a small part of that!
What does Faithfully Restored means to you: FR is a simple picture of women loving women as the hands and feet of Jesus! It’s not complicated, it’s just intentional care. I love that FR made me feel so cared for in a dark and wearying season, and I want to be a part of helping care for women both near and far in whatever their story brings!
