If You Saw Me Today…

You would definitely disqualify me from leading our next Online Bible Study, I Used to Be So Organized.

When you sign up for a particular study, you probably are hoping to be taught/led by an expert in that area, right?  Sorry, to disappoint you. I am a participant in these studies, just like you!  LOL, I need them even worse than you I bet. Seriously, every study I’ve selected so far has been driven out of my own need. Ok, now you know it. I’m not only unqualified, I’m also selfish!

Today my thoughts, desk, actions, and life feel like they are spinning out of control!  So much on my plate, not enough hours in the day to complete, and so much of it could be prevented if only, I were a little more organized.

I have high hopes for this Online Bible Study in my own life and I’m honored and excited that you are joining me also.

And since, I’m no expert in organizing life, I’ve invited a few friends to help me out. Read about our fantastic conference call series below. These are an extra part of this Online Study, not required, but very beneficial. If you sign up for the conference calls, I guarantee your time will not be wasted or I’ll gladly refund your money.  

If you’ve been a part of our conference calls before, please leave a comment how they helped you with the Bible study, helped your life, or encouraged you.

Have a great day y’all! I’m so excited to begin this study with you! Hopefully when it’s all over I can write a book titled, I Used to Be So Unorganized: but now I’m not.

Conference Call Series

For this study, I Used to Be So Organized, we have a great line up of guests (see below). During this conference call series we will explore physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of organizing our lives, homes, and minds. 4 power packed messages and great interviews to help you as your apply the truths in this study to your life.

Each call will be recorded so if you can’t be on the live call, you can listen to the call via phone, computer, or download. You do not have to be a participant in this study to participate in these calls. Anyone can sign up.

Guests:

Glynnis Whitwer~

Glynnis is the author of I Used to Be So Organized. She blends Biblical truth, wise counsel, and Godly advice into this book (and everything else she writes too). She will be sharing on this call what led her to write this book and how she lives it out in her busy daily life. Glynnis has been married to Tod since 1983 and they have five wonderful children.  She is the editor of the P31 Woman Magazine and has a degree in Journalism and Public Relations from Arizona State University. Before joining the staff of Proverbs 31 Ministries, she worked in public relations and marketing for developers of retirement and assisted living communities.  You can keep up with Glynnis and learn more about her on her blog, http://glynniswhitwer.com/ .

Eileen Koff, CPO®~

Eileen is a member of the NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) where she is presently the Publication Chair.  She received her C.P.O.® certification in June 2007, in the inaugural class certified by the Board of Certified Professional Organizers. Eileen is a member of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD)in which she completed the Chronic Disorganization Level II Specialist certification. She also writes a monthly devotional as the Faithful Organizer’s Devotion and Prayer Director, a national Christian professional organization. In 2011, Eileen became a certified Family Manager Coach.  “Coaching new Mom’s and families’ has given me that missing piece that I had been looking for in my business. With this level of expertise, I can confidently not only organize busy homes, but can actually help them manage all aspects of their families’ busy lives.”

Eileen’s greatest asset is her ability to look at even the most hopeless scenario and then see past it, visualizing the solution. She puts her clients at ease and makes them feel excited about finally restoring order and control to their lives, eliminating the chaos, and reintroducing peace and tranquility.

You can learn more about Eileen and her fabulous ministry at her website, www.tothenextlevel.net .  (Warning: Her website is addicting! She offers so much helpful information and services, I had a hard time leaving it!)

Heather Bleier~

Heather will be addressing the area of spiritual organization and discipline. We’ll also chat about how she balances work and home life. Hear what Heather has to say:

“I grew up in the great state of TX which I absolutely LOVED!  I earned my degree as a Director of Christian Education at Concordia University in Austin, TX before I moved out here to sunny South Florida in 2005 to serve at Our Savior Lutheran Church and School.  I also volunteer at Proverbs 31 Ministries in Matthews, NC serving Melissa Taylor as she leads the online Bible studies. In 2010, I married my best friend and love of my life Daniel Bleier.

Things I LOVE to do?  Help women and youth draw closer to God through the study of God’s Word, prayer, worship, and fellowship.  I am addicted to coffee, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to sing and act and will do so at the drop of a hat…seriously!”

Aren’t you so excited to meet her? You can read more from Heather and keep up with her on her blog, http://heatherbleier.wordpress.com/

Stephanie Clayton~

Stephanie will be sharing with us how we can organize our thoughts and mind.  We will also talk about how she balances (and juggles) motherhood, full-time work, and home.

Stephanie lives in Amarillo, Texas with her husband, 2 children, miniature schnauzer, 2 guinea pigs, and beta fish. She has a master’s degree in counseling and a bachelor’s degree in psychology, but her true passion is ministry. God has put a call on her heart to reach out to women who are feeling stripped of the joy in their life. Besides regularly writing on her own blog, Stephanie can often be found blogging over at www.melissataylor.org as part of the Proverbs 31 Ministries Gather and Grow team and Melissa Taylor’s Online Bible Studies. She is currently working on a non-fiction book project titled “Regifted” that I hope to have published some day soon.

You can keep up with Stephanie on her blog, http://stephanieclayton.org/

Angie Combs~

Angie will share with us her secrets on organizing life.

Angie is on the Proverbs 31 Ministries staff. She is married to Brent and will become “Mother of the Bride” to their only daughter, Laura, in September. She provides social media assistance to numerous Proverbs 31 fb and twitter accounts. Angie has become our go to girl when help is needed in the office with assisting in the resource department to killing spiders and fixing toilets. Organizing things comes naturally to her. From color coordinating her closet to organizing her grocery list, she makes finding things “easy peasy.”  (a side note: I don’t know what I’d do without Angie in my life. If any part of what I do appears “with it, together, or organized,” it’s because Angie had a hand it. Really.)

  1. Y’all, I’ve bought the CC series for each study I’ve done with Melissa and I have to say they are worth every penny of your $14 investment! I HIGHLY recommend purchasing them. I love the fact that even if I miss out on the call live, I can download and listen to it later. Believe it or not, I STILL will sit down and listen to one of the past calls, just to be refreshed and encouraged. I hope y’all will sign up to join us on these calls!

    <3 Heather

    I love the confrence call so worth it
    you feel like you can relate to
    each confrence call you listen to
    ive only been able to listen to one
    but it really spoke to heart

  3. I absolutely 100 percent encourage you to get the conference calls. They take the study in such a deeper direction and the bonus is you get to download them and listen to them anytime you feel you need a refresher.

    I always find a way to get the calls. $15 for 4 calls plus the download!! N. well worth the money!!!!!

    Highly beneficial – you won’t be sorry.

I couldn’t even get a counselor for the $14 you charge …. and trust me … well never mind the trust comment … you already know that I need lots of counselors in my life!!! I always walk away so blessed and enlightened by each and every one of your guests!! Love how each guest shares their heart and their story!! Love the realness and honesty that is spoken by all….

    And don’t get me started on your messages ….. can’t get enough of what God gives you to share personally with me during your calls. .. and then to hear you pray …. well …. they always melt my heart and bring tears to my eyes….so heartfelt … so real …. so transparent!!!

    I have participated in these calls for the last 2 studies and they are POWERFUL!!!! Well worth it. I highly encourage you to participate in them to enhance your study.

  6. Sarah Rose says:

    These calls really make the study! I LOVE them! :)

  7. The conference calls are awesome! You will not regret spending the money on them. Being a part of the calls is an amazing experience. Not only do you get to hear Miss Melissa’s voice, you also get to go in a little deeper with the study with these amazing ladies sharing from their own personal experience & life situations. Plus the calls can be downloaded to your computer so you can listen to them as often as you’d like. I’ve been a part of Melissa’s studies for over a year now & have every one of the conference calls for the last 4 studies on my computer so I can go back to them as I need to. If something comes up for me during day & I’m having trouble with it, I still go back to some of those calls & listen to them again. Just the reminders I get from listening to them help me to stand strong again when things are getting tough from time to time. Back with the very first study I was in with Melissa, I wasn’t sure about doing the calls at first. Money was tight & I just wasn’t sure about putting the money to that. Let me tell you that I’m so glad I did! I gained so much from each call & I always hung up the phone feeling energized & ready to keep moving forward in the study no matter how difficult any particular day had been. It was amazing. Plus sending Melissa a question & then having her answer it or even ask the guest on the call to answer it always made my day. You’ll love the calls!!!

    • Tricia – I just have to say I love you girly. Look at how far you have come in a year. From barely posting to now writing beautifully!! Praising God for you!!!

  8. Mel, so excited for the conference calls. What I love most is getting to hear from the Author and then your awesome messages! It is so exciting to hear the author talk about the book they have written, why they wrote it, and get a piece of the passion they have for the topic! And Mel, your messages always hit a home run :) I can’t wait to hear all the conference call guests and their unique takes on organization! Sometimes other people give us ideas we woud never think of ourselves, and they work! Conference calls here we come!!!

  9. The CONF CALLS are awesome!!!!! Out of all the speakers that will join us, there is always one that usually captures your heart, or maybe two or three! [Smile]! These people have been in our shoes, have felt our pain, our joy, and are there to share with us how they were able to grow and use their circumstances to better their lives and the lives of others [Of Us]! They will speak to how they turned the tables to be a vessel for Jesus and will teach us some of the great wisdom they gained by traveling the roads they did. DON’T MISS OUT! I can’t wait!!!! I need this study so much! I’m going to spend this Friday organizing and working in my husband’s home office ~ maybe I should just wait til after the study! Big Hugs to All!

    The cost of these conference calls are nothing compared to the blessing you will receive. Every time, you will hear a message from Melissa as well as a honest, get-to-the-truth conversation between Melissa and her guest. If that were not enough, you also have the opportunity to ask questions of Melissa or the guest that week. These conference calls are filled with stories from women just like you as well as biblical promises to get you through the night, day, week, month… So excited to hear God speak through Melissa and her guests over the next few months!!! One of my favorite things…

  11. The conference calls are definitely that amazing added touch! You will not be disappointed & its definitely worth every penny of the $14! ! I also love that if my life is busy at the time of the call I can call and listen after I put the kids to bed or whenever I have the extra time. I love the personal touch it adds to the study and the encouragement! Don’t miss out!

  12. The conference calls are awesome and well worth the money. The calls are a great way to connect with others and to find some encouragement. I would highly recommend the conference calls.

  13. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the conference calls are. The camraderie, the information and wisdom that are poured out is amazing. Melissa always gets such wonderful guests…and the VERY BEST part is you get to know Melissa in a way you never could otherwise..You get to see her heart, hear her story, hear her prayers….It is the BEST money ever spent. Don’t wait. And don’t worry if the times don’t work for you, Melissa has them recorded so you can listen at your convenience.

  14. I subscribed to the conference calls on the last study and they were absouletly worth the $14. They give you such an uplifting. They were a complete blessing!

  15. Kandace says:

    I, too, highly recommend the conference calls. Reading the book is amazing…. but the conference calls just drive it home. They make the study so real! To hear other women talk about things that are already in hour head is so comforting. Really makes you realize you aren’t as crazy as your mind tries to convince you you are! Real voices of real women!

  16. Nichole says:

    I love the conference calls! I am never able to listen to them live, but I love having them to listen to on my computer. They are a great encouragement as I do those exciting jobs as a mother like washing dishes, cleaning bathrooms & folding laundry! You won’t regret getting them!

  17. Got my book. Ordered the conference calls. Ready to go.

    Excited about this study.

    Tasha

  18. MIchelle Neill says:

    I love the conference calls too. It is hard for me to get on them sometimes at the scheduled time but since they are recorded you can listen to them whenever! I LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to listen to them whenever works for me. Plus I can listen to them over and over and let the information REALLY sink in. They are awesome! =)
