About Emily Scott Robinson
North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” Named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country and Americana Artists to Watch” for 2019, Robinson received critical acclaim from Billboard, No Depression, and American Songwriter for the stories captured on her new album.
The diner where the waitress knows everyone by name. The World War II veteran reflecting on the end of his life. The windswept trailer park where people prefer to keep their curtains closed. As she meditates on human frailty and the power of resilience, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Rolling Stone called “Traveling Mercies” a collection of “country-folk songs about America in all its pain and glory with the literate, Southern gothic sensibility of Flannery O’Connor.” Robinson is on the rise with her new record— a tour de force from an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow humans.
About Life Skills House
Life Skills House was founded as a Texas not for profit 501(c)(3) organization. We provide transitional housing and Christian based life skills training for up to two years for multicultural young women, including but not limited to, those who were victims of human trafficking, those who are pregnant and single mothers from economically challenged backgrounds, ages 15-25, who are serious about breaking free from a lifestyle of impoverishment. We offer assistance to young women as they move from dependent, often abusive relationships, into independent self-sufficient lifestyles.
Additionally, we provide housing for the young children of the mothers residing at the facility.
On staff is a Biblical counselor to help the residents receive spiritual and emotional healing from their painful past to be set free and embrace their future. We believe that it is imperative to portray Christianity as a lifestyle in a family oriented atmosphere. We are committed to walk alongside them as they learn to invite Christ to take the lead in every area of their lives so that change will take root from the inside out. A close walk with Christ and the extensive skills development program will be empowering; they will no longer be seen as a liability in the community but instead as an asset as they become active productive citizens.
