“Creating a Living Space” – Step 1 – Sorting

The “This is How we Do it!” , my new video series, has official begun … Last week, we looked at the cluttered, basement space that we are starting with.  In the end, we plan to have a peaceful, serene and organized living space.

As you may or may not know, the organizing process only has THREE (3) basic steps:

  1. SORT
  2. Purge
  3. Organize

Today, we are going to focus on “Creating a Living Space”, step 1, which is sorting!

Please take a look at this week’s video and tell us what you think…

Introducing “This is How we Do it!! ” – A New Organizing Video Series

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! The moment that we all have been waiting for… the first video in the “This is How we Do it” series!!

We, at “Order Your Steps” hope that these “how to” videos will help you to get your House in Order… We will show you from start to finish, how to create new, uncluttered; organized living spaces in your home.

** I apologize for the volume, but the best part is the music. So please hang in there.**

Hope you Enjoy!!

We welcome your comments & questions….

Where Have You Been????

34839555_sIt truly seems like forever since I published a blog post.  I am sure that many of you thought that I had taken my brand new Ford Edge and rode off into the sunset…. But No, I’m still here, four (4) whole months later, with close to 10,000 miles on my not-so-new vehicle and I am still not sure what to write.  With July right around the corner, the last six (6) months are a blur….

At this point, I must say that God has been good.  No Complaints!  I have obviously covered a lot of ground, with 10,000 miles in four months.  However, there have been no relaxing vacations or long, leisurely trips.  But family is healthly, a little wealthier and a little wiser.

There is one thing that I would like to share.  Recently, I read, “The Circle Maker”: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson.  I couldn’t begin to tell you how much of an impact the book has had over me, but as a result of reading it, I have made my BIG dream even BIGGER. I’ve circled with prayer, “Speight Enterprises”, a multi-million dollar ministry/business.  Speight Enterprises is a conglomerate of Order Your Steps, Inked Designs, Speight Security and Lara Sean’s (aka Myiesha’s) bookstore & cafe. Our multi-million dollar building is an old warehouse that will be converted to also house; penthouse apartments, an art gallery, a fitness center, etc. etc. etc.  Our building is out there and we are already looking for it, so that we can circle it, like the city of Jericho.

The secret of a really BIG dream is that it is birthed by our God-given desire.  Our sole purpose in life, is to bless others by all that we do and make sure that all the Glory belongs to God.  Some of us have seen our vision very vividly, but for some, the vision is still a little blurry.

Well, I guess that I had something to say after all.  I can’t promise that I will post more often, but let me leave you with this… DREAM REALLY BIG and DON’T DOUBT … and don’t allow anyone to doubt you or your ability to accomplish your dream.

It was really nice chatting with you again and I do promise to keep in touch!  

Until next time…

NY Times – Pamela Druckerman: The Clutter Cure’s Illusory Joy

I recently discovered the secret to livening up even the dullest conversation: Introduce the topic of clutter. Everyone I meet seems to be waging a passionate, private battle against their own stuff, and they perk up as soon as you mention it…

…Clutter isn’t a new problem, of course. But suddenly, it’s not just irritating — it’s evil. If you’re not living up to your potential, clutter is probably the culprit. Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” the top-ranked book on The New York Times list of self-help books, promises that, once your house is orderly, you can “pour your time and passion into what brings you the most joy, your mission in life…

It’s hard to resist the de-cluttering fever. I, too, spend my weekends filling bags with cookbooks, toys and vintage dresses, and then hauling them away…

2015 is quickly approaching…

Most people believe that as a professional organizer, that I am always organized… I must say that I believe that I am more organized than most, however, I too must take time to re-organize.  Granted I try not to let it get too out of hand, but for me, it is very therapeutic to get organized so that I can be more productive and more efficient.  In spite of my very hectic schedule, it is important to invest time, in order not to waste time in the future.

I spent two (2) days last week putting things in Order!  I started with my closets and dresser drawers…

Then I worked on my office…

This is a project that I am working on for a client, who wants to get all her files in order for 2015.  She has a number of big projects for next year, so she wants to be prepared to work with a spirit of excellence and divine order, as God has ordained!

Do you have a plan for 2015?  You do know that God has one for you, so I would suggest that you get prepared.  Take some time to put your things in Order and be ready to prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers….

August is a Month of Change

I’ve decided to reblog this post from two years ago. All the info is very relevant for this August, now 2014, the Year of “Double Completion”. We are still in the midst of constant changes, ALL for the Better. Our best is yet to come ….. Hope you enjoy!

Finding Order in Chaos

August is the 8th month and  in biblical terms, the number 8 means “new beginnings”, in the year 2012, the Year of Order.

taberstruth.com

August has always been a month of significant events for me.  August 4th was the 14th anniversary of the death of my father, which is usually just a passing thought.  For some reason, the thoughts of my dad lingered a little longer than usual this year.  My father raised me as a first son (which also has strong biblical implications, but I’ve digressed).  He was very strict and a strong disciplinarian with me, but not with my sister (another story for another time).  So needless to say, my dad and I were not the best of friends.  But I loved him and late in my adult life, I realized that he loved me too.  August 7th would have been his 78th…

Please take a moment to read my daughter’s testimony. It is ALL God’s Grace!!

The Junoesque

On the night of Monday June 23, I was in a car accident. The cab I was riding in, after hitting one car, for some reason it appears that the accelerator stuck and we sped off for about a mile before we ended up in a ditch on the side of the road.

A terrifying experience indeed, but I discovered a few things. This was my first time in a major accident, riding in an ambulance and going to the emergency room so forgive me if these things aren’t new to you.

1. Paramedics are required to take people to the hospital if their cars end up in ditches to make sure there are no neck or spinal injuries. In order to transport you, they put you on a hard, flat board called a baseboard, put what seems like a wrestling helmet on your head and strap you down with…

Elayna’s Life: An Update

Hello Everyone, I thought that I would share some of the work that my daughter, the graphic designer has done. Please check her out at http://www.thinkinkeddesigns.com.

The Junoesque

I know, I know I have been very lax when it comes to posting here on the blog. I know I have said that I have been busy, but I figured you all deserved to know exactly what I have been busy with.

You may or may not know that I am a graphic designer by trade and the last couple of months I have been doing a lot of graphic design projects. I am not complaining by any means. This is what I love to do. But I just have to figure out how to manage both; my job as a designer and my job as a blogger.

So what exactly have I been working on?

TTYA

The biggest project I have been working on recently is with Taller Than Your Average (TTYA). If you don’t know, TTYA is a London based tall clothing company who recently celebrated their…
