Thank you!

After Tuesday’s release of Before We Say I Do, I just wanted to pop by and thank you all for joining me on my special day. Before We Say I Do ended up on 3 Amazon Hot New Release Lists! THREE. THREE. In case you missed it, that was THREE!  :) Seriously,…

Edifying Others
It's no secret that our words have power. (Proverbs 18:21 - "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.") We can tear someone down, and we can cause them happiness. The same goes for us, as a whole, we ...

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear
There seem to be a lot of fear being spread through media and, therefore, through social media we see a lot of bad things lately like murders, disappearances, sex trafficking, stealing of children, hate crimes, pretty much anything horrible that you can thi...

Lies I tell myself
I tell myself I'm not beautiful. I tell myself the reflection staring back at me isn't worthy of love. I tell myself each and every flaw. I tell myself that I need to look this way. I tell myself I need to change that about me. I tell myself I'm don't deser...

What is Agape Love? And are we loving others enough?
What is Agape (pronounced: agápē) Love? I asked the Lord the same thing after He told me that He was Agape Love. It was something that I wanted to understand on a deeper level. It was something that I had to understand. If God took enough time to tell me th...

Great review of Before We Say I Do!

"It was incredible after everything Chase and Madison have been through. Then to bring Zach into their lives again was AWESOME!"

Before We Say I Do is here! (Again...)

That’s right, y’all, it’s the official Before We Say I Do re-release! It’s been completely re-vamped, and I’ve added new scenes, including actual vows and a scene with Madison’s little brother! I’m so excited for y’all to read this one! Mads and Chase are…

Lean Not on Your Own Understanding
Fear has been a common theme amongst Christians as of late. The enemy is trying his hardest to make sure that we're kept in fear. Fear from the unknown. Fear from the past. Fear of everything. And I acknowledged that in my last post . Since we talked about ...

Shake off the dry bones
As I woke this morning (5/8/2015), a phrase was running
through my mind, “Shake off the dry bones.” I wasn’t sure what that meant, but
as I searched through Bible verses with “dry” and “bones” in it, Ezekiel 37:2
popped out at me, and I couldn’t get it out ...

Love Kept Jesus on the Cross
I was browsing Facebook the other day, and I came across this picture about how Jesus' love kept Him on the cross. Found on Adam Crabb's Facebook page Sometimes I feel like we've lost sight of what Easter is all about. It's easy to focus on the Easter egg h...

Arm Yourself for Battle!
As Christians, we're always in a battle against the devil and his minions. They're constantly trying to hinder us from receiving our blessings from our Father and keeping us away from His loving arms, mercy and grace. As the verse in Ephesians says, we're n...

Coming Out of the Fog
I shared this on my Facebook page, Inspiration When You Need It , and I thought it was important enough to share here, as well. It's something that I think we all need to hear every once in a while. And although this post is short, I think it will clear up ...

Writer and lover of books
Introduction
Emerald Barnes graduated with a B.A. in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing at Mississippi University for Women.  She resides in a small town in Mississippi and has the accent to prove it. 

She's the author of two books.  She mainly writes suspense/thrillers in the YA genre, but she dabbles in other genres and her books are enjoyed by all ages! 

She's constantly working on new novels and has more ideas than she knows what to do with.  She blogs at
emeraldbarnes.blogspot.com and ebarnes23.wordpress.com which takes up more of her time than she anticipates but loves it so very much!  She's also a volunteer at the World Literary Cafe which is so amazing!  She also proofreads novels for authors as well as provides a light line edit to their works.

She's an auntie to three beautiful nieces and two handsome nephews who take up the other half of her time, but she couldn't imagine spending her time in any other way! 

She's a Whovian, a little bit of a nerd, a reader, a writer, and a family-oriented person.  God is number one in her life, and she thanks Him continuously for His love and favor.
