Sunday Inspiration: The Four Chaplains

This post was scheduled last Sunday to celebrate Easter and Passover, but the change to my new website deleted it. I still want to share it. Both Easter and Passover–-as well as other religious holidays–celebrate great courage, the courage of Jesus who died without compromising his beliefs or faith, and the courage of the Israelites who followed Moses…

Fiction Friday returns next week, but in the meantime, thank you so much for all the wonderful emails as you entered (and continue to enter)  my Celebration Giveaway. There have been so many I can’t respond to each one, but I have read and smiled over every email. I’m making a list of your questions to…

Here We Go Again: The Brand New Website

Well, if you’re reading this, you found me, yes? I’m so glad you did because we had just the tiniest snafus getting the new website up.  Easter’s Sunday Inspiration disappeared during the changeover, and for a while people with Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions were seeing a fine mess indeed. By the way, if…

A Warm and Wonderful Holiday to All

During the changeover to my new website today’s Sunday Inspiration was sadly a casualty.  We’ll be back next week.  In the meantime, I wish the best to all my friends continuing to celebrate Passover. And to my Christian friends, a happy Easter.

This week when I saw this moving Thai commercial  on Facebook,  I thought wow, this is exactly what I’m trying to say in my Goddesses books–except for the ending, because I promise I don’t sell insurance. Then I realized that I’ve tried to say these things from the beginning of my career, although perhaps not…

Sunday Inspiration: Graham Crackers & Love

I’m not often inspired by a television ad, but the recent Honey Maid commercial had me in tears… in a good way. Have you seen it? If not — or if you want to see it again and be re-inspired  just hit play. What I find inspiring about we human beings is our ability to…

Emilie’s New Website: And There Will Be Recipes!

Last Tuesday I told you I was busily creating and revising content for my new website.  I forgot to tell you about one innovation I think we’ll all enjoy. Recipes. Right now every single title novel I’ve written and published has its own page with tabs leading to features about the book, but what many…

Sunday Inspiration: Helping Girls Get On The Write Path

I really like this story: Helping teen girls get on the ‘write’ path. Not only is this a true story about an inspirational woman who is both compassionate and gutsy, but helping girls develop their creativity as writers is a subject dear to my heart. When Karen Taylor was laid off from her corporate job, instead…
