Dear Organized Friends, (you are getting organized, right? Smiles.)
First let’s all stand up and clap clap clap for our awesome Week 2 leader, Heather Bleier!!!! yay! clap clap clap clap!!!! Whooo Hooo!!! Great job Heather, thank you SO MUCH!!!! Your check is in the mail! hahaha I wish! Seriously, thank you for leading us. You left me with a tough act to follow!
Organized Friends, how are you today? I hope you have had a great weekend! I’ve been out of town at a Lacrosse Tournament in Greensboro, NC with my son, Hayden and daughter, Hayley Grace. While I love traveling and watching my son play, I dislike splitting up the family. It can be a little chaotic. This book has really helped me put all our activities in perspective, especially when many things don’t get done due to all of our crazy schedules. Chapter 5, Setting Realistic Expectations for Yourself was awesome for where my life is right now. I’m not Super Woman, and I’m ok with that.
So far, I have LOVED Section Two: Finding a Balanced Approach to an Ordered Life in our book! Chapters 4 & 5 really spoke to so many of us. Just hold on, Chapters 6 & 7 will impress you just as much…if not more.
In Chapter 6 we will learn about the importance of Establishing Priorities and in Chapter 7, Understanding the Whys of Disorganization. (I personally cannot wait to find out WHY I am so unorganized!)
Are you ready? Here we go Week 3!
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 NIV
I love this verse. It all starts in the mind. We will be discussing this verse during the week, so I won’t say much right now. This verse will carry us through both chapters 6 & 7.
Week 3 Assignments:
Sunday: Prepare your heart and mind for a new week. Decide now when you will work on your Bible study during the week. If there is a special father in your life, wish him a Happy Father’s Day!
Monday: Read Chapter 6, Establishing Priorities. Read and begin to memorize Romans 12:2, our memory verse. Stop by my blog, MelissaTaylor.org for a message to kick start your week!
Tuesday: Review Chapter 6, practice your memory verse, and check in at our gathering place, my blog, MelissaTaylor.org . (Did everyone but me know you don’t need the www in front of a web address anymore? My son shared that with me a few days ago. “Mom, really, you didn’t know that?” ~ Uh, no.)
Wednesday: Read Chapter 7, Understanding the Whys of Disorganization. Practice Romans 12:2. Do you know it yet? Almost? Stop by my blog, MelissaTaylor.org, I have plenty to say about why I think I’m unorganized! I want to hear from you too!
Thursday: How are you doing? Need a catch up day? You got it! Take this day to reflect on Chapter 6 & 7 or get caught up with your reading. Stop by my blog, MelissaTaylor.org. I want us to talk a little more about why __________. Plus I want to share a free conference call with you!
