Emilie Barnes with Anne Christian Buchanan's Bio:

Emilie Barnes and her husband Bob have partnered in the highly successful More Hours in My Day Ministries for more than 30 years. In addition to teaching women creative ways to get organized, she has shared her personal journey through life-threatening cancer, recovery, and beyond for the last eight years.

Emilieís much-requested organizational secrets and words of wisdom are published in dozens of books, including the bestselling If Teacups Could Talk; Home Warming: Secrets to Making Your Home a Welcoming Place; Simple Secrets to a Beautiful Home; Cleaning Up the Clutter; Keep it Simple for Momís On the Go; and Quiet Moments for a Busy Momís Soul.

In her new book, Emilieís Creative Home Organizer, Emilie lightens a womanís everyday routine by sharing hundreds of practical tips on food preparation, cleaning, storage, laundry, finances, safety, childrearing, sewing, crafts, vehicle maintenance, and more. As she teaches women how to streamline chores in the home, garage, and garden, Emilie emphasizes that chaos robs a home of peace and takes lots more energy to manage. Presenting health, beauty, and fashion expertise, she inspires women to relish their calling as a wife and mother.

A popular speaker throughout the United States and Canada, Emilies shares her difficult, faith-building experience through cancer and assures audiences that God is there through every hour of need. In her second release this season, A Quiet Refuge, Emilie offers favorite prayers and comforting meditations for all who face trying circumstance of any kindó divorce, financial loss, health problems, and more. Emilieís wisdom-filled words lead women to a place of restoration and hope.

While undergoing treatment for non-hodgkins lymphoma, Emilie wrote Safe in the Fatherís Hands and A Cup of Hope. Following a bone-marrow transplant, her story of Godís amazing faithfulness is told in A Journey Through Cancer. Recent releases include I Need Your Strength, Lord; More Faith in My Day; and Minute Meditations for Healing and Hope. Together, Emilie and Bob have written a number of books, including A Little Book of Manners for Boys, Minute Meditations on Prayer, Minute Meditations for Couples, and Grateful Hearts Give Thanks.

Emilie is listed in 100 Christian Women Who Changed the 20th Century (Revell). She is an enthusiastic media guest who has shared practical insights and personal experiences on hundreds of radio and television programs, such as The 700 Club, Focus on the Family, FamilyLife, Trinity Broadcasting Network, and Moody Broadcasting Network.
