Emily Placido, a native Northeasterner, was born in Manhattan and grew up, across the river, in New Jersey. She always had a passion for the written word, and as a teenager, Emily wrote her first short story. Then life got in the way and her natural path was impeded. At the insistence of her father, she enrolled in the Pre-Med program at Caldwell College. Her family moved to Florida in the late 1970s and Emily graduated from Florida Atlantic University. Soon thereafter, she married a New York transplant and they had two children.

After a few years as a stay-at-home mom, Emily grew restless and sought outside work. She spent many years in the financial/insurance industry, working for major U.S. banks and insurance companies. Then she became

“There are four kinds of people in the world—those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.” —former first lady Rosalynn Carter”

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.”
Alexandre Dumas

“There are four kinds of people in the world—those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.” —former first lady Rosalynn Carter”

“God does not want to control you, or stifle you, or manipulate you, or force you to do anything you don't want to do. Quite the opposite. God will let you do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, with whomever you want to do it, and as often as you want to do it. When was the last time God stopped you from doing anything?”
Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose

“If we will walk humbly with our God, He will lead us by the hand to exactly who and what we need, to those people, things, and experiences He has designed and intended for us, and this alone will be the cause of our deep fulfillment and happiness.”
Matthew Kelly, Rediscovering Catholicism: Journeying Toward Our Spiritual North Star

“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body and prayer is to the soul.”
Matthew Kelly
