Reflections and Revelations

We must continue to plan and God will direct our steps (Proverbs 16:9) So, as we prepare for what 2021 may hold for us, let’s begin by…

• Identify three (3) goals that you can realistically accomplish over the first few months of the year, i.e. write your vision, make it plain and be specific, and or simply read a great book that will inspire you.

Welcome to the 2nd Year of a New Decade!

Last week, I officially welcomed you to 2021 and I suggested that you take a moment to look pass the chaos of the world today and think of one word that would describe what 2021 will mean to you. Were you able to give it some thought?

After much thought and contemplation, I’ve decided that my word will be “Enlightening”! During 2021, I want to gain a better knowledge and understanding, and spiritual insight as my true purpose continues to unfold. I’ve always loved Ephesians 1:18, The eyes of your understanding be enlightened; that ye may know the hope of his calling, and the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints… Read Ephesians 1-17-19, when you have a moment.

Your word should serve as a constant reminder of what you are striving for throughout this year. On this journey, we will continue to face the challenges of life and we will incur many blessings and opportunites for success along the way.

So what is your word, please share in the comments…

Over the next few weeks, as we reflect on our thoughts and revelations of 2020, I hope that there will be moments that will encourage and inspire you. We will share our ideas, thoughts and even organizing tips to help bring Order to your Mind, Body and Space, so that you will not only survive, but Thrive in the coming year!

What is Virtual Organizing?

From time to time, I’ve mentioned virtual organizing, but many of you may still be wondering just “what is virtual organizing?”. 2020 has been a year of major changes, especially due to COVID. Therefore, for our health and safety, much of our daily routine and even the services that we receive rely heavily on technology. Professional organizing services are no exception. With 2021 quickly approaching, this is the perfect time of year to make sure that “Our House is in Order”.

We have been pushed into an environment, where we telework, our schools are virtual and we even shop for our groceries on-line. As a result, we spend alot more time in our homes. Virtual organizing allows us to continue to support you as we declutter and organize our home, work and virtual learning spaces. Keep in mind that the organizing process is the same, rather it’s on-site or virtual. Organizing virtually simply enables us helps you to sort, purge and organize your stuff, utilizing video conferencing.

Our overall organizing project begins…

Step One: We begin with free phone consultation. During our conversation, we will discuss your needs, wants and desires for an organized space. The most exciting part for me, is when I receive a picture or short video of your space.

Step Two: I will analyze the space in the same way that I would if I was there in person. I will develop an action plan prior to our virtual assessment.

Step Three: I schedule and conduct a virtual assessment, which begins with a “live” video tour of your space via FaceTime, Google Duo, Zoom, etc. This will also allow me to actual see my prospective client and share our thoughts and ideas on how to proceed.

Step Four: After the virtual assessment, the client will decide if they are comfortable with the plan and then we will schedule our first virtual organizing session.

Throughout 2020, we have had to adjust to doing more things virtually that we were accustomed to doing in person. As this way of life continues, it’s important that our space remain uncluttered and organized so we will be productive in a peaceful environment.

Virtual Assessment Only $25.00 for 30 min.

It’s Almost Thanksgiving

So whether you are preparing for an in-person or virtual family gathering, remember it’s a time to be grateful for family and friends, not stressed and overwhelmed by all the details. Although, we’re only two days away, let’s take a few moments to answer the three most important questions:

  1. What is the menu?
  2. Who’s coming to dinner?
  3. Who’s cooking what? (if applicable)

We want to minimize the frustration level, especially for the hosts/cook(s), our family, friends and guests. Our key objectives are to have plenty of time set aside for our prayer of thanksgiving and to have dinner prepared on schedule. Below are a few suggestions to fine tune our preparation time and maximize our time to enjoy each others’ company.

Keep it Simple!

1. Stage your kitchen counter by having all your ingredients readily available. So, how many trips to the store do you make before dinner last year?

2. Confirm the food items that others are bringing and have extra dishes prepared, just in case.

3. Check the guest list and prepare for the unexpected. Make more food than needed, instead of less. If your gathering is virtual, you may want to have your guests to test the videoconferencing platform ahead of time.

4. Prepare to have dinner ready on time, or at least earlier, than later.

Now take a little breather before the guests arrive or the virtual dinner begins. Then be ready to greet your family, friends and special quests.

Give Thanks for His Goodness & Eat your Glorious Dinner!

There’s still A lot of Laundry

So how are you doing with the laundry? The pile may begin in the spare room or on the futon in the office, but it will continues to grow! We may want to take a portion of the pile into our bedroom, fold them and put them away. It takes about 10 min., for real…

We would love to help you, call us and schedule a virtual assessment.

Order Your Steps is Open

Order Your Steps continues to move forward in business and in ministry. I’ve continued to allow the Lord to take the lead, so I’m not moving too fast, taking it one step at a time. I’m waiting patiently for God to open doors and close others. For me, waiting does not mean standing still. I continue to prepare for the future by promoting my business thru social media and our monthly newsletter. I post alot more consistently and I’ve updated our website with some new pics and changed some old ones. Check out my Photo Gallery!

I’ve streamlined my work process to include a virtual assessment and on-line virtual organizing sessions, which is going extremely well. My on-site sessions are more structured and I have specific COVID guidelines for the health and safety of my clients and myself. All in all, my opportunities to minister continues to grow, one on one and even in small virtual groups. God’s plan for me has not changed…

Remember, we still have a purpose to fulfill, but we may just have to do things a little differently. Let’s continue to prepare for the changes ahead!
