This book is literally 12 steps from walking daily with God to staying fit and healthy. Lane Jordan (the author) really touches every aspect of life and gives you practical tips to help organize each aspect. Each step does include bible verses the reinforce that certain step. My favorite part is the bringing home part of each step. This section gives you a reflection and a personal application. I think this helped me to apply it to my life and not just read it. If every book did this I think I may retain more of what I had read. This book has been a great help to me and I recommend it to all busy and unorganized women out there.

Lane P. Jordanâ€™s 12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman has been revised and republished to bring the tips up-to-date. I was hopeful when I began to read the updated edition. I find myself often disorganized and distracted and yearn for a system to follow that will solve my problems.
This was a very different book and focus. Jordan draws a woman who takes care of all aspects of her life by drawing closer to the Lord Jesus and His teaching. She touches on the relationships we have â€“ social, family, children, self â€” but mostly spiritual.
Initially disappointed not to find a â€œhow toâ€ book, I was pulled into the depths of what could be â€” IF I properly order my spiritual life.
While this book wonâ€™t tell you anything about â€œorganizationâ€ that you donâ€™t already know, it will help you organize yourself and your tasks so you can put Jesus first in your life and your home. After all, our priorities should be God first, family second, all else third.

What can I say about this book? Well, first of, I love that I feel like she and I are sitting down to a cup of coffee/tea with her and she is just chatting with me. I love that she says to put God first, then your husband, then the rest of the your life. In Step 5, she says to schedule a day at home once a week. I agree on how important that is. I mean seriously, we are constantly on the run it seems. Not so much as of late with us only having one vehicle. But, once we have another car, I will be running at least 5 days a week. I will also be going back to work soon, and so that will make a difference. Lane really drives home the need to put God first in each of the 12 steps. She has a call to action, then a practical application. For me, I need it explained to me, in average person terms on how something should be done. Lane does that! In Step 7, Lane says "Don't let any one thing dominate your life." In this step, I have a difficult time and will be rereading this again. I want to be healthy and set healthy goals for my children. Lane explains it in such great detail, I think I can incorporate that into my life.
These are the following titles in 12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman.
Step One: Walks with God Daily
Step Two: Works Hard on Her Marriage
Step Three: Strives in Life Alone
Step Four: Reaches Out to Her Family, Friends, Neighbors, Church, and the World
Step Five: Understands Time and Importance
Step Six: Balances the Demands of Her Home and Her Career
Step Seven: Stays Healthy and Fit
Step Eight: Works to Provide Healthy Meals
Step Nine: Manages Details of her Home
Step Ten: Nurtures and Provides for Her Children
Step Eleven: Restores Herself Emotionally and Spiritually
Step Twelve: Seeks the Source of her Strength
Lane does an excellent job in breaking down each step. It is easy to understand, encompasses God. Lane incorporates computers, the internet, aps on a smartphone, etc for us "modern women".

I confess that I am more of a "Wannabe" than I am a truly organized person, so I was excited to be offered a chance to review this book. Am I reformed? No. But, I did find lots of useful, practical tips to help me become better organized. Divided into 12 easy to manage chapters, each provides several ideas to help you get more in balance and to eliminate being overwhelmed by it all. This is not a book that you just read and immediately make all the right changes; I see it more as a reference book I can use to help me implement the changes I want to make. I did not become unorganized in a few days, so I don't expect immediate results.
This is also a very good book to read as a small group or book club. At the end of each chapter there is a Scripture verse that is encouraging, questions that you can ask yourself---but would be terrific as a discussion with others, and it ends with Personal Application. Some of the suggestions are things I already do (or...have planned on doing), but I did find several ideas that I want to make part of my routine. More than just a quick-fix, this book can help you make a practical lifestyle change to become a much more organized woman.
This book was made available to me by CWA Review Crew in exchange for an honest opinion.

12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman, by Lane P. Jordan, was excellent.
I know that I could spend many times reading this book and still not glean all the useful information available.
One of the best parts of this book was the â€œBringing home Stepâ€¦â€ (put in one of the twelve steps). I enjoyed the questions and ways to apply it in my own life. I am looking forward to putting my plans into action.
This is a book all women should read and then implement into their own lives. I highly recommend it!
