Emily Olsen works as the Pastor at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Gladwin MI. She uses storytelling as a way to inspire and encourage her congregation. She also spouts on-the-fly fairytales for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders during their lunch hour at Gladwin Intermediate School and produces the occasional parable for the children involved in Christ the King’s after school ministry, Kids’ Club. In her telling Emily utilizes a combination of scripture, early church legend, fairytales, her two cats Noodle and Meatball, and her deeply flawed office vine Jealous Plant. Sometimes all at the same time.
