Organization 101

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I struggle with being organized. If I get one part of the house organized than another part falls apart or I am not paying enough attention to the children. Life is crazy, teaching the oldest, taking care of the baby, recovering from a miscarriage (or for some of you being pregnant), cleaning house, making meals, getting groceries, having people over, helping at church, and loving our husbands. 

I have discovered a new organization system from Grace Works. I have tried Flylady before, and I think Flylady has a lot of wonderful ideas, but I get hung up trying to create my note book and routines. Grace Works (Jennifer Lamp Neef) has taken all of the guess work out of it. I just began working through the “Beautiful Life Management” pages. They are wonderful.

I would encourage any of you who struggle with organization and planning to purchase the Beautiful Life Management Set. Even if you don’t it is a wonderful help. It comes with the planner, and all the pages, tabs you will need to get started. It also includes 3 tapes of Jennifer explaining everything and helping you get started. I sat and listened to her tapes yesterday afternoon and what a blessing and encouragement they were to me. I have only used it 2 days, but I know that if I am diligent and stick with it, this plan will really work well.
