Emily Yake - Top 10

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
My childhood, which instilled in me hard work, faith, and ambition. I was raised in a very blue-collar home with a coal miner/preacher as a father. My mother, brother and I traveled the South singing as a Southern Gospel Trio. I am still so very thankful for that time.

2.How would you describe your husband?
My husband. After surviving 100% heart blockage last year, he is training for his third Ironman. He works diligently to conquer heart disease and is a true champion for this cause. He is a CEO, activist, amazing father and loving husband all while fighting daily for his quality of life.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
Family. I take my role as a mom and wife more serious than any other calling on my life. Being a full-time step mom has challenged me, but through ample prayer and work, our blended family is a joy. I endlessly devote my efforts to my familys happiness and success.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
Penelope. This is the name my husband has chosen for me from the day we met. He believes it is the perfect summation of my mischievous, quirky, nave, and fun personality wrapped into one name.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Being from Alabama (Roll Tide!), and my husband playing college football in Pittsburgh (Go Steelers!), fall is undoubtedly my favorite time of year. There is nothing like cool temperatures, beautiful trees, and football in the South. Since my sons first word was pootball, my love should probably continue!
