The Best Way I Have Found To Get Organized
Nonny, June 4, 2015
Organize ... His Way is the only "How To" book that has been written that makes one read, write, pray and read again. It makes one want to be organized because you finally understand why living among all the piles and boxes and " I will get to that tomorrow", is exhausting. God wants us to be refreshed so we can be closer to Him. I am still working on my clutter. Everyone has too much.
It Starts in the Heart - Organize His Way
Betsy Strauss, February 29, 2016
I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
In Organize His Way, Eileen starts with the heart and mind. Changed thinking leads to changed living. She does a beautiful job of walking you through scripture that points to lies we have believed about ourselves and our possessions.
Eileen challenges us to think about what would it be like if we considered the clutter in our homes as a faith issue. We live our lives as if we are the masters of things we amass, yet if those very treasures are keeping us from God's best, they are mastering us.
While the goal is organization, Eileen doesn't define that as pristine HGTV perfection. She keeps a beautiful balance between the two. Her heart is to shed light on the debilitating power of clutter both in your home and in your mind. Clutter breeds isolation, distraction, confusion, and over-complication. This is not the full life that God intended for his children. In order to find peace, we must humble ourselves, and release the shame and fear we feel for living lives outside of His best.
I love that this is not just a how to book for getting your home in order, but a sweet shepherd walking you through scripture to renew your mind before offering practical tips for implementation. There is no condemnation, just hope.
As you read through each chapter, you pause along the way to reflect, respond, and pray about the concepts discussed. While she gets you started right away, the tasks are realistic and manageable. There is great comfort in knowing that Eileen knows that this process isn't easy or overly simplistic. She paints a realistic picture and then gently equips you with tools to organize His way.
An Amazing Book
Belinda Menna, September 13, 2015
I absolutely love this book. Before I read this I considered myself a very organized person. Now. I have to say that it truly transformed my life. What a powerful tool for anyone who needs to put order in their life. Eileen takes you step by step and gives you amazing insight into God's way of seeing things. Isaiah 55 speaks of how are thought are not God's thoughts, neither are our ways. I strongly suggest you take the time to read this book so you can live out your full potential.
This is a great "go-to" book with scripture included

No Longer Doing It My Way!
Dawn, January 5, 2014
I’ve tried over and over to organize “my way” and even hired a professional organizer. Each time my efforts have fallen flat. The clutter eventually returned! Why? This book answers that. For every organizing issue I need to cover, there is a solution in this book from His point of view; His ways/thoughts are higher, and just so much more creative than mine! This place is still a work in progress, but it’s surely not what it used to be!!! I’m still learning that the end result of organizing is not what matters most. It’s the process of transferring from unorganized to organization by renewed thinking. As I change my thinking and apply the book’s principles, I get different (better) results. Sometimes I have to reread to understand. But the more I understand, the more I’m motivated. That means more results (and I’m excited because I’m seeing results)! Little by little, the clutter is disappearing, and I’m making a way for His still small voice to be heard. Yep, that’s one of the many benefits of being organized His way.
The prayers (Taking it to God) at the chapter endings have me thinking, “Wow, that’s exactly my prayer, too!” This book, without a doubt, was written for me! And if you are truly interested in eliminating clutter (physical and spiritual), and following the best plan - the one He has for your life, I recommend this book! I’ve searched and so far found that it’s not like any other book on organizing. It’s truly God-honoring, Christ-centered, and empowered by the Holy Spirit - it’s one of a kind!
Disorganization is a Spiritual Matter
Barbara Hemphill, December 12, 2013
Organize His Way is a beautiful book with a beautiful message. Even though I have been in the organizing business myself for over 3 decades, I use this book as a resource for my Certified Productive Environment Specialist training program. Eileen Koff's insight into the spiritual connection to disorganization is invaluable.
The best workbook to effect lasting change from the inside
NC Family, December 29, 2013
Organizing illuminates the effect our possessions have on our life." ... "Clutter actually builds walls of isolation" ... "Stocking up for "just-in-case" days keeps me chained to my past." Just a few of the many pearls of wisdom that I highlighted in my personal copy of Organize His Way. I'm using this workbook for a small group because it is the perfect tool to help people identify the root causes of their disorganization. For anyone on a faith journey, this is an essential workbook to help you simplify and organize your life!
The why and how we get "disorganized"

New perspectives on organizing
Donna D Cameron, February 11, 2014
Clear connections to scripture and Christian literature. A sincere heart comes through the pages. Sometimes preachy. Practical and could be useful for study groups
