Emmy McKirgan

Hello everyone my name is Emmy McKirgan. I have always enjoyed writing, I have journaled through many times in my life : during the highs and lows, the easy and the hard, the questions and answers.

Why Do Good Things Happen?

In senior year, I was working on a teen dystopian novel called "Rubble" that included the characters discussing Biblical matters. I wish I could finish that book, but I wrote it during physics, chemistry, and biology classes, and there's no way I could remember all the weird sciency stuff I was planning on putting in it. I do think it's interesting how I wrote about a lockdown, and people not wanting to listen to the government to keep them safe. Hmm...Pandemic predicted? Anyway. Hope you enjoy! Comment below if you might want to read more of this incomplete work.

Forests and woodlands cover about 40% of the land. Facts from… Continue reading Austria

What will heaven be like? – The Good Place Spoiler Alert

I think that until we really realize what life is like without God, this almost literally Godforsaken earth we've advocated for since the beginning of time, it would be impossible for us to truly understand that an eternity of perfect communion with God and each other is the only antidote to this aching pain we have deep within us. Once we get to heaven and our sinful, selfish blinders are removed, I don't think we'd have eternity any other way.
