More About Emilie Barnes

Emilie Barnes Emilie Barnes is a nationally recognized home-and-office organization expert, a best-selling author, a dynamic speaker, and a dedicated homemaker. She is an active participant of the More Hours In My Day time-management seminars she founded with her husband, Bob.

A gifted communicator, for more than 20 years Emilie has been speaking throughout the United States and Canada teaching women creative ways to simplify their lives by getting organized. The success of her teachings created further demand, which motivated Emilie to put her much-requested survival secrets into print. She is the author of more than 60 books and the co-author of several books. Her original book, “More Hours In My Day” is in its fourth revision and has remained in print for more than 20 years. Together, Emilie and Bob wrote the very popular, A Little Book of Manners for Boys and Minute Meditations for Couples. Bob has written more than a dozen books including the very popular, “What Makes A Man Feel Loved.”

In A Journey Through Cancer, Emilie writes an autobiographical account of her diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from life-threatening cancer. Stricken with non-hodgkins lymphoma nearly five years ago, Emilie's foundation was shaken to the core. Now in recovery following a bone marrow transplant, Emilie is eager to share her story of hope, healing, and God's faithfulness. Her words offer comfort and encouragement to others suffering through illness, bereavement, job loss, or relationship struggles. Emilie speaks from the heart as she explores how to rediscover God's plan for life when your world is shaken, trust the reality of God's provision, receive joy in times of trouble, and live in hope. While in the midst of her illness, Emilie wrote two books. Safe in the Father's Hands outlines God's promises and blessings and A Cup of Hope speaks of the enduring strength of His peace and comfort.

In their new book, 101 Ways to Love Your Grandkids, Bob and Emilie encourage grandparents to create legacies of faith and love. Offering practical ideas, heartfelt prayers, and personal stories, they inspire every grandpa and grandma to pray for their grandkids, extend a listening ear, participate in activities, demonstrate unconditional love, and accept each child's uniqueness. In a second release, Everything I Know I Learned Over Tea, Emilie pours out 13 life lessons that invite women to embrace the comforts of tradition, honor the resilience of the human spirit, and celebrate the individual gifts each person brings to the table.

Emilie's much-requested organizational secrets and words of wisdom are published in more than 60 books including, If Teacups Could Talk, The Twelve Teas® of Celebration, The Twelve Teas® of Friendship, A Grandma Is a Gift from God, Quiet Moments for a Busy Moms Soul, Welcome Home, Beautiful Home on a Budget, Simply Dinner, Simply Organized, Time Began in a Garden, 15 Minutes Alone with God, The Spirit of Loveliness, 15 Minutes of Peace with God, Your Simple Guide to A Home-Based Business, and Fill My Cup Lord. Together her books have sold more than four million copies.

Emilie is listed in 100 Christian Women Who Changed the 20th Century. She is a frequent guest on numerous radio and television programs nationwide, including The 700 Club, Focus On The Family, Family Life and Moody Broadcasting Network, and is currently featured in one-minute national radio segments entitled, “Keep It Simple with Emilie.” She continues to share her creative ideas and personal experience with cancer on literally hundreds of regional and local radio programs.

Emilie and Bob Barnes live in Newport Beach, California where they enjoy spending time with their two grown children and five grandchildren.

Emilie Barnes currently resides in Riverside, in the state of California.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Only so-so  Jan 12, 2009
Following up on her book of manners for girls, "A Little Princess in the Making," Emilie Barnes also offers "A Little Hero in the Making," just for boys.

Drawing on the desire of some young boys to emulate comic book, sports, and other types of heroes, Barnes begins by saying:

"So are you ready to become a real-world hero? Got your cape tied on? Ready to become a little hero 'in the making'? Great! Let's get ready to fly...and master those manners!"

Every four pages then explores a different set of manners: helping at home (including using words like "please," "thank you," "excuse me," and "I'm sorry"), being a good playmate, meeting new people out in the world, hygiene, table manners, and having a brave heart.

For example, in the chapter on meeting new people, Barnes writes:

"Sometimes when you're out exploring your world, you might meet someone who looks or acts a little different. But inside, they are just the same as you. They deserve a hero's friendship, too!
The best thing to do when you meet anyone new is to smile at them and say 'hello.' You can shake their hand - that's a very grown-up thing to do...Heroes also show kindness to others by calling them what they would like to be called - Mr. Lawnmower or Mrs. Snapdragon or Dr. Sniffle. That shows kindness and respect - and it's very brave of you."


What I Like: I appreciate that Barnes is trying to instill manners in boys in a fun way. Michal Sparks' watercolor illustrations are charming, showing boys playing sports, wearing red capes, and wearing armor. I especially like the comic books pages in the book, showing young boys doing "heroic" (that is, polite) things.


What I Dislike: Barnes has taken the meat from A Little Princess in the Making and put a superficial slant of heroism on it. In other words, while Barnes did a great job of interweaving princess-like things in her book for girls, she does a poor job of making manners make sense with heroism. I also wish she'd more often cited scripture; she really does so only once, when she quotes the Golden Rule (but doesn't tell us it comes from the Bible). Sparks' comic book pages do a much better job of putting forth good manners in a way that appeals to boys; too bad there are only three pages of those comics in this book.

Overall Rating: Good
