Emily McFarlan Miller is an awards-winning journalist and truth-seeker.
I'm a Christian and a Chicagoan; currently, the digital editor for social media and engagement at the Chicago Sun-Times.
As a journalist, I studied at New York University and, since then, have gained experience across all kinds of media, reporting for newspapers, magazines, cable and network television, radio and the Web. For six years, I was the education reporter at the Sun-Times publication in Elgin, Ill., The Courier-News. You can read more about that on my resume.
As a Christian, I co-founded Hope for the First Nations, a nonprofit that partners with the White Earth Nation in Minnesota to share the love of Christ in culturally-relevant ways. Here in Chicago, I attend Covenant Presbyterian Church, although most people think I'm Catholic because I love me some saints and liturgy and celebrate the church year with abandon.
As both a journalist and a Christian, my calling is to seek truth and report it. To test everything and hold on to the good. To bring together different voices to Have the Conversation -- to treat each of their stories fairly, as I would want mine to be treated. And that's what I try to do here on my blog, where I post every Wednesday (oftentimes, more). My favorite topics include those conversations others might not want to have, everything from diversity to the saints and the supernatural.
I also have written for these publications:
- RELEVANT Magazine
- Christianity Today's Her.meneutics blog
- Start Marriage Right
- Devotional Diva
- Lean Girls Club
Mostly, I write.
