The home page module will only appear on the home page the first time a visitor comes to your site.
You access the module in extensions/module/Home Page and click the wrench(configure).
Select the Homepage Data tab and click HomePage Entry
You will have a setting for how many times the home page module runs for each session.

You either create or edit an existing page here.
