Mother's Day is coming up on May 12th, and in keeping with this tradition of honoring the special mom's in our lives, Emilie Barnes has created some very special Mother's Day programs for you this month on "Keep It Simple."
Throughout her Mother's Day messages, Emilie reminds us that moms are an important part of God's creation, and that a Godly mother is a gift and blessing to her family. We need to cherish, honor and be thankful for our mothers.
During the week prior to Mother's Day, some of the special programs Emilie ...Read Full Post »

Spring is almost here and after your home has been closed up all winter won't it be nice to open up the windows and let fresh, spring air and sunshine in?
It feels so good to air out and freshen your home up with a little spring cleaning!
To help you get started, here are a few of Emilie Barnes' "speed cleaning" techniques:

The New Year is a time of reflection for many - a look back at the past year, maybe at the master plan you've laid out for our life. It's a time to look at where you are, and where you are going. Is this how you gauge how successful you've become - or not?

We have a room here at Ambassador that has fabulous acoustics. It's really a racquetball court, but it gets used more for singing hymns than playing racquetball.
I'm not much of a singer at all, but I love when my coworkers, with their lovely voices, go into the racquetball court and sing. Recently, I heard them singing the "Doxology." The worship strains were beautiful and filled me with praise and thanks to God.
Sometimes it's hard to feel thankful. Life's circumstances have a way of knocking us down so that all we can see is what ...Read Full Post »

One of the very special blessings in life is the gift of being a grandparent. If you are a grandparent, you know just what I mean -- that smile, just for you from your sweet grandchild, no matter how old, that says, "I love you!"
Or, maybe you have been blessed with a special grandparent in your life. Someone to look up to, someone you know always prays for you. Someone who used to sneak you an extra cookie, or dig into their pocketful of change and share it with you.
Emilie Barnes of Keep It Simple is the proud grandparent ...Read Full Post »

Summer is here, and with it, the hope of enjoying more of the outdoors ─ beach time, barbeques, bike rides, and my favorite ─ just lazing outside with a good book!
Sounds great, doesn't it? That is unless you are you faced with a "to-do" list that will keep you busy working this summer.
Emilie Barnes has just the solution for you! She has "fine-tuned" organizing and cleaning to make it much less overwhelming!
Begin by making a list of manageable tasks and goals you want to accomplish this summer. Make it realistic. Be flexible with your goal.
Do you really ...Read Full Post »
