Thanksgiving From the Inside Out

Have you been worrying, about your Thanksgiving and Christmas preparations for far too long?  I know that in the Koff household, I’m the one my family looks to for nothing less than a great meal and meaningful memories. Even with the wealth of organizing knowledge this professional has at her disposal, I still wrestle with pleasing my family and balancing the “I refuse to feel exhausted this year” high wire walk. Whenever I begin to ponder the myriad menu alternatives, I too grapple between preparing food favorites or cooking new ones that I know are healthier; after all, nourishment is important even during the holiday season.  Menu planning, though, is only a small portion of the holiday preparations, as it is also the time of year when many of us organize and deep clean. It’s when we bring out the good stuff, not just the wedding china but also the crystal glasses.

 Detecting, Diagnosing and Dealing with Spiritual Environments

As our world grows increasingly darker, I felt it most appropriate to bring forth this subject. I pray the Holy Spirit ministers to you in all truth!

Over the years I have been asked questions regarding unusual or unsettling occurrences many of my clients have encountered in their homes. Because this is not a topic typically taught in bible classes many have felt confused as to what they were witnessing.

Giving, Without the Need for Thanks

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Luke 6:38

There are numerous passages in the Bible about giving and they express the many benefits we receive in giving to others. There are two ways one can approach giving.  One way can be with a clenched fist. This immediately reminds me of so

God Loves. God Gives. Learn To Organize His Way

February is the “love” month. With velvet red hearts, trappings of roses and cupid’s arrows, it’s so easy to get caught up in our world’s expression of love. Love speaks differently to many people. However, in the Kingdom of God, God IS love! Man’s pitiful portrayal of love, no matter how grand we wish it to be, is so far from the love of God; we will never experience it here in our third dimensional realm.

An organized life is a life that flows freely

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose”.

Romans 8:28

An organized life is a life that flows freely. My calling as a certified professional organizer is to introduce or re-introduce that freedom into my client’s life. Creating an orderly environment does more than allow them to move and think unencumbered; it opens them to a greater understanding of priority and purpose.
