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).

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 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.

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.)
