Managing a busy, happy, growing family is a lot of work.
But you can handle it.
Tips and tricks to get organized may help you get things under control for a time, but lasting change comes after you change the stories you tell yourself.
If you are
- discouraged that organization attempts never seem to stick,
- frustrated when your work is so quickly undone,
- burnt out on normal life,
- tired at the never-ending parade of menial tasks,
know you are not alone.
A new perspective will enable you to keep our equilibrium & sanity.
Too often, when we try to get organized, we
- go whole-hog and burn out.
- focus on surface problems and don’t address the root of our trouble.
- think buying new containers and labels will permanently solve our situation.
- spend more time fiddling with a planner than actually doing what needs to be done.
- freak out when our kids undo our work and mess up our plans.
Our problem is that we focus on appearances and circumstances rather than our own attitudes and approaches.
Organization is about mindset & preparation,
not the state of the closets.
Your closets might be a mess, your storage room might be out of control, your car dashboard might be sticky, but you might still be organized even in the midst of it.
Being organized isn’t about looking put together. It’s about handling what life throws at you calmly, coolly, and collectedly.
I have been in a homemaking slump the last month or so, feeling overwhelmed and hopelessly behind -- listening to your Simplified Organization modules and rereading some posts was just the cheery kick in the pants I need to get up and going again.
Working through the e-course has been transformational for me. It really helped me connect the dots and brought such clarification. Working through this course has helped me clarify problem areas and given me workable strategies for overcoming them.
When the laundry, dishes, and spilled milk gets under our skin –
When the endless to-do list threatens to undo us –
When the average day simply defeats us –
we need solutions that address our hearts.If you’re tired of quick fixes and superficial change, you're ready for Christ-centered support to establish personalized healthy rhythms and productive routines so you can grow and flourish.
Change the way you think about your responsibilities.
Improve your mood.
Build the systems to help you get more done and gain peace of mind.
Become happier and more fulfilled as a homemaker.
Stress less and accomplish more.
Simplified Organization: Learning to Love What Must Be Done will focus your heart and mind on what matters, helping you become the best home manager you can be.
- Reframe the story that plays in your head to beat discouragement
- Manage your expectations in light of your current life so your plans are realistic and flexible.
- Delight in your roles and responsibilities to regain a healthy sense of self.
- Develop a prioritized, intentional weekly routine so you can bless others and fulfill the duties God has called you to.
- Bring order out of chaos.
Digging deeper will create changes that last, changes that stick.
It will be worth the time invested.
One of my biggest hurdles has been setting up the best tools so that they will work for me and yours is the only thing I have ever found that provides that step-by-step information that easily fits my lifestyle. While most advice and systems work well for either working full-time or managing the home, I have had trouble merging the two together to fit our family, but yours has done that nearly seamlessly.–Amber Z.

I have tried a lot of different planning programs, and I always get tripped up on long-term planning. Trying to plan my life now in terms of what I imagine things will be like then makes little sense and feels very overwhelming. I am really loving the freedom of focusing on where I am now and what my responsibilities are now, trusting that if I am faithful in this, God will bring new opportunities into my life when the time is right.–Lori E
