I Used To Be So Organized!!


For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
1 Corinthians 14:33

"I Used to Be So Organized ~ Help for Reclaiming Order and Peace".  To be honest, I'd buy Glynnis Whitwer's newest book just for the title:  "I Used to Be So Organized"!  I feel like that describes me in a nutshell in this season of my life!  And I LOVE the cover of her book with the mismatched shoes!!

The old saying must be wrong.  You indeed can judge a book by its cover ~ this book is fabulous!



Glynnis' book, with a biblical and practical approach for reclaiming order and peace in the lives of Christian women, is giving me a sense of freedom and joy.  I feel normal again!  There is hope!

Each morning I pray Psalm 90:17 to the Lord and ask Him to establish, bless and make fruitful the work of my heart and hands that HE has for my day.  "And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands."  Psalm 90:17(NKJV)  As Christian women,  we desire to honor God in our lives and with our time and God-given gifts.  "I Used to Be So Organized" reminds us how His beauty is so graciously upon our lives as we allow Him to establish the work of our hearts and hands.

In her book, Glynnis shares biblical insights and boundaries for re-establishing order in our lives.  She helps us identify "time wasters" and walks us through the process of de-cluttering our hearts and homes.  Her tips for organization and for making our homes functional and yet welcoming re-energize us to live our lives with excellence for the purposes and glory of God.

I am giving away two copies of Glynnis' new book here!  Just leave your name and a way to contact you should you win. 

The girls in my Gather & Grow Bible Study group all received Glynnis' book earlier this year.  I have received exciting feedback. One of the gals asked if she could get eight more of them to give to her friends!  She said, "I usually don't stick with a book and finish reading it, but I can't put this one down!"  The content of Glynnis' book meets the expectations of the great title and cover!

Happy Monday Everyone!  Make generous time for Him and meet with Him in His Word ~ you will be filled at His table!

I will walk about in freedom,
for I have sought out Your precepts.
Psalm 119:45

Hello there from Jolly Old England, I would love to read this book, I had a breakdown 6 years ago and am still clawing my life back with God's help. I follow the Bible study even though I haven't got the book. I meditate on the verses, and journal the questions and any helpful comments I can pick up. Thank you for the opportunity. Kind Regards Mandy (mandycurrie@googlemail.com)

I would love to win this book. I had downloaded it to Kindle on my laptop but my laptop died on Friday. I now so wish I had bought a regular copy. Everywhere is sold out, earliest ship date is over a week out. I'm sneaking this post in during work hours, and I'll need to stay after work or come in early to pull up Kindle to read my assignments. Errrr!

I am doing the online study with Melissa Taylor. I just finished Chapter 1 on my Kindle and can not believe how dead on Glynnis is with my life. It is like she has been watching me and wrote this book just for me. I would love to get a hard copy of the book for notes and highlights purposes.
