Well oddly enough I did it again. My born again friends will probably tell you it is a sign from God, and maybe it is but I am really not using this blog as my spiritual awakening! As my friend Rebekah says "Me and God are cool, you can go ahead and stay out of it."
Anyway, what I've done is pick yet another book with a very Christian leaning. Karen Ehman is a pretty well known, in addition to writing books, she is a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries national speaking team. So you might think I could be poised for yet another ill fitting read but that is surprisingly NOT the case. Karen's faith is a part of her in such a way, as my eyes are blue and I like french fries sort of way, that is in no way off putting or preachy. Her book gives straight forward, customized advice and while you know her choice to spend this or that free hour on a Church activity totally lights her up you are equally free to choose playing a video game, visiting a sick friend, or finger painting with your kids.
The thing that makes "The Complete Guide to Getting and Staying Organized"seriously spot on and useful is that she takes you on a little tour of your own life in such a way you get to see your specific irritants and issues that get in your way and then she gives you strategies for making things better. She even has a little system of rewards designed so when you get things on track you will be motivated to keep going. This book is written specifically for the stay at home mom so if that is your current calling I would highly recommend the book. I am currently 34% (love my Kindle!) through the book and look forward to reading the rest.
