Is your mind as full of clutter as things in your home? Would you love for your home to run smoothly and peacefully? Then Shannon Upton has the answers for you in her new book, Organizing You. Following the help Shannon has for each of us in this book, your mind and spirit can be free of the clutter that is always lurking there. She weaves unique organizational skills and techniques along with personal stories and the scriptures to strengthen your faith as you live your everyday life. I really enjoyed Shannon Upton’s delightful approach in writing this valuable book. She begins with organizing your home and spirit, goes to your goals, chores, organizing fun family times, your ideas, and your relationships. She pretty much tackles every aspect of your life, and she does it in a fun and enjoyable way.
This book is very well organized and formatted. Throughout the entire book, you will find scripture verses to help reinforce what you are reading. At the end of the chapters, there is a section called Giving Thoughts to Your Ways, which really made me think about what I read in each chapter, and about how I can be better organized in my life. My organizational skills are horrible, so I found several things in this book that would help me. The first thing I plan to try is a daily planner. Ms. Upton gives a lot of helpful tips and encouragement for having a daily planner, so I am excited to try this idea. I really want to encourage you to pick up a copy of this wonderful book. It has really helped me in better organizing my time and my spiritual life. You will be delightfully pleased with what you find here.
