Author Bio

Emilie Barnes is the author of 70 books, including 101 Ways to Clean Out the Clutter; Heal My Heart, Lord; and 15 Minutes Alone with God. She appears on more than 300 radio stations as host of "Keep It Simple." Emilie and her husband, Bob, are also the founders of More Hours in My Day time-management seminars.

Are you searching for a ten-minute woman’s devotional to read as you drink your morning cup of tea? If so, Emilie Barnes’ book, Meet Me Where I Am, Lord, should interest you. Barnes has a homey way of reaching the reader as she instills small kernels of instruction on how women of all ages can live a more godly life.
In the eighty-seven devotions contained in this book, Barnes is neither bombastic nor preachy in her writing. Each Bible verse that she shares is chosen with care, and is the introduction to the rest of the devotion. If the Bible verse is the introduction, then the title would be the key that prepares the reader for what will follow. The core of each devotion is then told through the use of short parables, excerpts from other authors’ writings, and events from her life. She finishes each mini-lesson with a short prayer and an action. The reader is encouraged not just to read, but to put into action some morsel she has gleaned from her reading and then to reflect on it.
Throughout the book, Emilie Barnes has interspersed many themes. One theme that she touches on is one’s relationship with God: “We can feel the gentle touch of God’s comfort, soft as a mother’s kiss, the quiet reminder that He is still here” (p.21). Another theme is one’s relationship with family and friends: “When we join forces with others we become stronger, and it becomes difficult to weaken our position. There is great strength in unity” (p. 37).
Yes, there are other devotional collections out there. However, Meet Me Where I Am, Lord reads like a comfortable chat between old friends. Barnes keeps the book from becoming one dimensional by sprinkling in short poems from such poets as Edgar A. Guest and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. She adds bits of wisdom from George Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, John Wesley, St. Francis of Assisi, Catherine Marshal, and others. And, there are hymns that leave us humming; three of these are John Newton’s “Amazing Grace,” John Peterson’s “No One Understands Like Jesus,” and Cleland McAfee’s “Near to the Heart of God.”
Barnes has written thirty-one books; many of them are devotionals. She has also co-authored five books with her husband, Bob. So, find a comfy chair and invite Emilie Barnes in for a chat. Oh, yes, don’t forget the tea. – Vicki Borgman, Christian Book
