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.

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.

Time for Tea May 5, 2006
I own a copy of this given to me by a friend who loves to drop by and share a cup of tea. I purchased a copy for my cousing for her birthday, also. The illustrations are wonderful and the lines of prose about tea and time spent with our friends make this the perfect little book to enjoy if you are having a quiet cup of tea alone.
If Teacups Could Talk Feb 1, 2006
This is a book mothers should give to their daughters. I regret all the years of my daughters' childhoods that I did not use the good china and teapots. We did share over a cup of tea but how much nicer to have used the teacups instead of the everyday mugs. I will definitely be having more teas with my granddaughters and using the recipes in this book.

This quick read is one for a woman to linger over. Wonderful thoughts and suggestions for "special times". Helps to establish tradions and customs for family and friends.
This book is my absolute favorite! It inspires & delights me Jan 16, 2005
I have been collecting books about tea time for a number of years. This book is my favorite of all of them. The illustrations are gorgeous, the entire book is a visual joy. It inspires us to put some ritual into our lives, to slow down, take time, enjoy beauty & calm, serenity, and one another. Another book that inspires in the same way is by Alexandra Stoddard, Living a Beautiful Life. Emilie Barnes encourages us to put the tea kettle on the stove to boil the water, which gives time to set a lovely tray, cut a fresh flower, do the things that delight the senses. The same goes for making fresh scones - there is time to do so while waiting for a friend to drive over. I love her idea of collecting a variety of tea cups & saucers, displaying them, and inviting guests to look over them all and select the one that delights them to use while enjoying the tea. The narrative simply adds to the pleasure of the book. There is something for everyone & all ages, for one or a crowd. If you can only get one book about tea, this is the one!
Nice book Mar 7, 2003
