Order and Peace ~ Book Give Away!

For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
1 Corinthians 14:33

"I Used to Be So Organized ~ Help for Reclaiming Order and Peace".  To be honest, I'd buy Glynnis Whitwer's newest book just for the title:  "I Used to Be So Organized"!  I feel like that describes me in a nutshell in this season of my life!  And I LOVE the cover of her book with the mismatched shoes!!

The old saying must be wrong.  You indeed can judge a book by its cover ~ this book is fabulous!



Glynnis' book, with a biblical and practical approach for reclaiming order and peace in the lives of Christian women, is giving me a sense of freedom and joy.  I feel normal again!  There is hope!

Each morning I pray Psalm 90:17 to the Lord and ask Him to establish, bless and make fruitful the work of my heart and hands that HE has for my day.  "And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands."  Psalm 90:17(NKJV)  As Christian women,  we desire to honor God in our lives and with our time and God-given gifts.  "I Used to Be So Organized" reminds us how His beauty is so graciously upon our lives as we allow Him to establish the work of our hearts and hands.

In her book, Glynnis shares biblical insights and boundaries for re-establishing order in our lives.  She helps us identify "time wasters" and walks us through the process of de-cluttering our hearts and homes.  Her tips for organization and for making our homes functional and yet welcoming re-energize us to live our lives with excellence for the purposes and glory of God.

I am giving away a copy of Glynnis' new book here at His Table For Two!  Just leave your name and a way to contact you should you win.  The winner will be announced on Monday morning, so comments are welcome through Sunday night!

The girls in my Gather & Grow Bible Study group all received Glynnis' book last Friday.  Already I have received exciting feedback. One of the gals asked if she could get eight more of them to give to her friends!  She said, "I usually don't stick with a book and finish reading it, but I can't put this one down!"  The content of Glynnis' book meets the expectations of the great title and cover!

Happy Weekend Everyone!  Make generous time for Him and meet with Him in His Word ~ you will be filled at His table!

I will walk about in freedom,
for I have sought out Your precepts.
Psalm 119:45

This book speaks to exactly where the Lord has me today -- He's been working with me and prodding me now all week to let HIM organize my day, my energy and my time to bring HIM more glory, and me more peace.

Thank you for endorsing this book! I really enjoy your blogs and how God works through your words.

Take care,

This may sound strange - but even being retired, and still being Mom and Grandma, I feel so lost sometimes . . . putting off stuff, misplacing stuff, etc. I like the verse you use though and am writing it on a card to memorize and use.

After losing both my Mother and Grandmother in 18 months, my head, house & heart are still in a state of chaos and clutter. I packed & made a temporary move to care for my Grandmother while she was in Hospice. It's been a year and I still haven't unpacked...the boxes have become my roommates & part of the home decor, LOL! Please send me this book to help me get my life back on the path to order and organization. Thank you!

HA! I should have written this book! I will say that though I am in a busy and nearly impossible to organize time in my life, I DO find peace and try to keep my perspective on JESUS. I fail when I neglect time with HIM because I am trying to keep up with the chaos. Can't wait to read this one! Blessings y'all!
