EMILY WATTS

The Gift of an Imperfect Mother

Emily Watts is a lover of words. A graduate of the University of Utah, she has been an editor for Deseret Book Company for more than thirty-five years, much of that time working from home part-time so she could devote most of her attention to her husband and their five children. She is now Executive Editor at Deseret Book. She loves serving in the Church and has spent most of her adult life teaching in the various auxiliaries, but her favorite calling is as a grandmother. Emily and her husband, Larry, live with their family in Taylorsville, Utah. She is the author of several inspirational books, including Take Two Chocolates and Call Me in the Morning; I Hate It When Exercise Is the Answer; and The Slow-Ripening Fruits of Mothering.
