My graphic designer, Inked Designs by Elayna, and I discussed a few different concepts, however, Elayna had suggested a bull’s eye from the start. Initially, I was a little concerned that it may not fit with the theme of the book and then the Holy Spirit led me to this scripture:
My question: What are God-worshipers like?
Your answer: Arrows aimed at God’s bull’s-eye.
They settle down in a promising place; Their kids inherit a prosperous farm. God-friendship is for God-worshipers; They are the ones he confides in. If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet. Psalm 25:12-15 – The Message (MSG)
It was interesting to discover that this scripture was the basis for my book for the beginning. The Lord continues to show me how to worship Him for who He is. I must focus only on Him for guidance and direction and He will always Order my steps. This journey has been and will always be about what He wants of me, much more than what I want from Him for me.
Order, Organize & Obedience is a tale spanning four decades of my journey with God to find order in the chaos of my life. It begins in August of 1979, as I’m returning to DC from Austin, Texas, after only five months. I will take you through my life in Corporate America, into my life as a wife and mother and all that I learned along the way. So please join me on my journey of Order, Organize & Obedience, with all the twists and turns, up and downs. As a bonus feature, there’s organizing tips too.
Available for Pre-order, scheduled for release in June, 2019.
Next Post: “A Little Backstory”
As you may have seen, I have written a book, entitled Order, Organize and Obedience” and I’m Super Excited! It is currently in the pre-order phase and is scheduled to be published in June. However, in all of my research, I’ve realized that promoting a new book may be a challenge.
The question for all of the authors who have come before me is: Should I do a formal book cover reveal now, is it too soon and/or should I do a little more hype first?
I have announced on social media that the book cover reveal is coming, however, I’ve not done what I would consider a media blitz. My plan is to do a formal announcement on my blog with the new book cover and an excerpt from the book.
What do you think? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
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.
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
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!
