It’s a New Year!

94202006 - silhouette the girls jump to the new year 2019 in night.

2019 has just began and it’s time to Organize your Mind, your Body and your Space!  We would like to suggest that we think of organizing as a time “to plan and take action.” This is the best time to start new habits, to begin a new less hectic pace for our lives and possibly, a new way of thinking! We should organize our mind & body for a healthier lifestyle and plan to be more productive and more efficient in all aspects of our lives. Then we should take time to organize key areas of our homes, so that we know what we have, where we have it and be able to put our hand on it, when we need it.
We pray that this year, we will continue to seek those opportunities to operate in our passion, use the talents and gifts that the Lord have given us and fulfill His purpose for us.
Dream Big Set Goals Take Action
Take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed. Focus on our positive accomplishments and don’t dwell on the negative. It is very difficult to build for BIGGER without a foundation.  Let’s make sure we have an action plan with our goals & objectives for at least the next few months.
We have to know where we’ve been, where we are going and …how we’re going to get there!

Coming in June, 2019

Close up book on table in sunset time

I’m SUPER excited to announce My New Book entitled:
 “Order, Organize & Obedience”  
This book will allow me to share how my steps have been ordered for more than 40 years, but my journey has only just begun.
Please pray for me as I embark on this new adventure!

It’s February, Already!

Back in December, which seems so long ago now…. We talked about getting ready for 2014 and the need for us to lay out a plan to achieve our dream, Big or Small!!  Well, it’s February already and I am checking to see how the plans are going.  I suggested that we jot down 2-3 things that we really wanted to accomplish this year. Now that 32 whole days have passed… How Goes It??

We must always keep our eyes on the prize or we will lose sight of our goals.  Our path may become real foggy.  Yes, I know that it is still early, so may I suggest that we at least glance at the plan and just make sure that we are heading in the right direction.  It is so VERY easy to get caught up into the day to day routine and before we know it, it’s September and we are saying, “Well there’s always next year!”

NO, not again!  Let’s make this year different.  2014, the Year of Double Completion, we can accomplish TWICE as much! Double for our Trouble… We will be BLESSED twice as much…  Double Spiritual Perfection… in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance.  Hebrews 6:11b-12 NLT

We can accomplish GREAT things by simply taking one step at a time.  Yes, Our Steps are Ordered!  

Are you making progress??  I am sure that your story will encourage others or you may need our encouragement to Don’t Give Up!  Your dream is closer than you think.   Please share….

Ramblings on What’s ahead for Me in 2014…

First, I must say that it’s amazing to look at your life through the eyes of God’s Grace… for the last 3 years or more, I have entered a new year with much anticipation and I have looked at the year that I have left behind, with a sense of calm & peace. Now don’t misunderstand, the previous 20+ years had been “Thank God I don’t have to do that again!”  But for the past few years, my only real challenges have been my son … and my finances (from my skewed perspective!).  See the Lord has always provided for us financially.  There’s always been a ram in the bush!  Our needs have been graciously met; we have always had shelter and food on the table … BUT, I would prefer not to live from paycheck to paycheck.  So I have asked God for an over-abundance (and not just financially) and He has asked me to wait until it’s my season!  I know that God wants me to trust Him with my whole heart.  Money, or the lack thereof, seems to always keep me a little unsettled, thus it continues to be my area of opportunity.  As far as my son goes, I have finally, finally turned him over to the Lord and now I am truly letting God handle it.  I am patiently waiting from my son’s deliverance and I refuse to interfere.

Now on to 2014… With each new year, I want to grow spiritually, walk in my purpose and always seek to get better and better at what I do.  2014 is no exception!  Order Your Steps continues to grow as more and more doors are opened. Many of those doors have been opened via ShelfGenie and for that, I am truly grateful.  However, there are four (4) major objectives that I would like to accomplish this year:

  1. Write an eBook entitled “It’s more about Order, than Organizing”.  I even have the dedication written.  I want to do a compilation of my best posts and put them into book form.  I would love to be able to offer some type of product(s) with my other professional organizing services.
  2. I would like to do more speaking engagements.  I have three (3) different “Order Out of Chaos” presentations prepared and I can customize them to suit the group that I am speaking to.  This may require a new marketing strategy, more networking, etc.
  3. I want to further my education by taking the certified professional organizing courses, which I wasn’t going to do initially.  However, now that I am going into my 3rd year of business, I believe that it would be an added benefit.
  4. Research the qualifications to become a certified Life Coach and begin to map out a path to add this skill to my business portfolio.

So I practice what I preach… I have identified and documented my 3-4 BIG objectives.  I believe that they all are realistic and achievable.  Now I must outline the specific actions needed, time-frames and deadlines to reach my goals.

As we journey toward our dreams, I have promised to keep an eye on you and I will keep you posted on my progress as well.

I am so excited!!

How about you?
