BACK TO SCHOOL TIP OF THE WEEK!

Let’s talk about our pre-schoolers & elementary schoolers. We have bought the “school” clothes, uniforms and some of the school supplies. Our summer routine is over and the “back to school” routine begins… Now pray for your strength and patience! We’d suggest that you start preparing for each school day as early as you can. I would suggest that the day/night before…
<>Lay out the clothes, shoes, socks, etc. Leave nothing to chance.
<> Prepare the lunch (or secure the lunch money) and the book bag.

BACK TO SCHOOL WORDS OF WISDOM!

Routines take practice. Things will not always go as planned, but you do need a plan. Don’t forget to take DEEP breaths often. Take each day as it comes and be the best that we can be. We must embrace our children, no matter how old they are, even when they are doing somersaults on our very LAST nerve, they are ours and we love them more than words can describe!

Time to Purge!

If you are still having a hard time deciding on what To Keep or Not to Keep, then this video might help.  But don’t forget the first step of the organizing process, which is Sorting!  It makes the purging process a LOT easier….

A Journey to Order: A Man’s Closet!

Another Journey into being MORE Organized… A Man’s Closet! Recently, I had the opportunity to organize a client’s husband’s closet!  Just for the record, the organizing process is the same, no matter the space….

In my experience, if a man takes pride in his clothes, then I find that their closets are very organized. On the other hand, there are men that would prefer that their closets not be organized, generally speaking…

I welcome your thoughts and comments! 😃

“Own Who You Are and…”

Philippians 1-6

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:  …… Philippians 1:6 KJV

  • Always be willing to learn and grow
  • Don’t change for anyone but YOURSELF
  • Strive to be the BEST YOU, you can be!

If you are waiting for someone else to look at you differently, to treat you better or to change for you, etc.  I’d strongly suggest that you search yourself first and then your perspective of others and what they think about you will change.  Trust me, I speak from experience …but that’s a whole ‘nother story!  But what I want to share with you today, is what prompted this post…

There had been a few incidents that had occurred during my organizing sessions, that made me doubt my true calling. As I was questioning the Lord about whether I misunderstood what He called me to do, this is what He said to me…

“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you!”

Since starting Order Your Steps, 6 years ago, I’ve been blessed that I have not had any major mishaps, i.e. “breaking stuff”! 😦  However, in spite of the recent mishaps, the clients had been very understanding, but the endless loop of thoughts in my mind had really been wearing on me.  I am sure that this never happens to you…  when those inner voices make us 2nd-quess who we are and our abilities!

Romans 8 1

Now, the Lord did clarify for me that my gift is organizing, NOT moving stuff!! :-/ But I’m learning, although it’s difficult, to accept my humanity.  As I’ve shared many, many times, I really don’t like to make mistakes, and yes, even “constructive criticism” is a bit painful. But I’m learning to store it away for now, since I’m sure that it will be very useful in the future.

“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you! 

I had a friend to ask me “when will I get to easy street? You know, when I’ll have all the answers”…  I told her that when you think you have reached easy street, there is another road “up the way”!
