The name derives from our love of nature and the outdoors, but continues to have meaning through scripture. Isaiah 44 is about God growing His people, like willows by flowing streams. In order to thrive willow trees must be close to water, just like we need to be close to Jesus.
We got married in June of 2017 and Jesus was changing more than a last name. A week after the wedding Erik lost his job, an employment opportunity fell through for Emily, and God was just getting started.
Earlier on in our relationship, we prayed over what it would look like to start a videography company, but we always thought it was further down the road. MUCH further. But there was no questioning God's timing. After earnestly seeking direction through prayer and clinging to God's grace, we started Willow Narrative.
Our prayer is that God's name is glorified through Willow - that others will see His insane love for them - and have no other option but to praise Jesus.
