Your 2013 Goals with Goal Sheet



If this is you saying:


I am committed to Planting

 Purpose, Power and Passion in 2013
  
Then you need a Goal Sheet.  
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Goals not written down are just dreams.
Wake up!


As always, I am here to help if you need me!
God is so good!  Jesus went through what He did so you
                                            could be more confident, more powerful for Him!



­­­­­­­­­­
                                       
Never forget the Power of your Purpose,
                                              your Influence, 
                                          your Prayers,
                                                 your Passion,       
 AND...  the Power of your God!

Kids, Truth and Lies

Someone once asked me "What lies are you talking about?"



The lies that we are here by accident, therefore have no purpose. The lies that tell little girls that their body is all that matters. The lies that say if we are not rich in money we are poor. The lies that tell us when this life is over - you're done. The lies that tell children with no earthly father, that they have no father that loves them. The lies that tell you "everything is okay as long as it feels good", the lies that tell you that you must rely on your own strength. Ok, I think I made my point by now.

God has made His point very obvious, when we stop to think about it. He is the TRUTH - Please watch this and then do something about it!

More Truth for you at A1 Organizing & Design here!

Your ideas welcome!


 "6 calm weeks until Christmas" 

I am looking for additional ways to keep stress levels at a minimum during this all important season and would love to hear from YOU!

 Examples: Your creative gift ideas, handling guests, meals, hiding gifts, Christmas cards,  your tree, your traditions that make Christmas enjoyable!  These are just a few examples.  I am looking for what makes this most wonderful Holiday stress free and enjoyable.

And if you aren't joyful, what would make you joyful?  

I need your input on these and other Christmas related ideas so I can add them into "6 calm weeks until Christmas!"


As an Organizer I do not enjoy the "hustle and bustle" of this fast approaching season.  In this report I will have what I personally do on a weekly/daily basis and specifically when I do these things so everything gets done without all the fuss and stress  Really. 

Anything additional you can add at the bottom of this blog has a great chance of being added to "6 calm weeks until Christmas" so please hurry to be included, as you know, it is coming quick!   Thank you!

I hate when I feel like this!

Sometimes I feel like this. Granted, it’s not often, but sometimes I feel a little dry and my attitude may be a little crusty, how about you?


Well fear not. The One who created every single thing you can see, and all those that you can’t, is telling us in Galatians to not grow weary in doing good. He says that at the proper time you will reap your harvest… if you do not give up. (Gal 6:8,9) Now if I were to believe the opinions of people who are just here on earth for a short time, like myself, not any smarter or wiser, I would have pitched this plant. It’s pathetic. We have no use for things that are “pathetic” these days, right? Oh but your God loves these types of situations. And I know that because I organize my life with His Word!

 As a busy wife, mother, organizer, author, coach and mentor, I don’t have time to organize my life by things that don’t work. I use the Age-old Proven methods of the Bible. (The Bible is Jesus Christ, just to be clear… read John 1:1-14) And this is what happens when you believe upon Him. He makes all things new. He says not to grow weary in doing good. Yes, I obviously neglected this plant for some time, but when I noticed the problem situation – when it was brought to my attention – I decided to do something about it. And because I heeded the call and actually did something with it, I’m getting a new Harvest. There it is, a new beginning forming in front of our eyes!



 I really hope you are getting where I am going with this. Just as this plant, we can take the Word at His Word and not give up. Your God wants to resurrect good things in your life, you just can’t grow weary or you won’t get your harvest! Do not give up! Look at the new flowers and green appearing on this plant. Our God wants to do that to all of us. He wants to use us in His plan. There are many things that need resurrected, in your life and those you love! You were purposefully created by a very purposeful God! Amen, what a great God we serve!

We won! He is so amazing!

The favor of the Lord has always been evident in my life, but I must say, of all the "trophies, crowns, ribbons and professional positions" I have ever received... there is nothing that compares to last night. WE WON! WE won, it feels better to win as a team... I am so grateful to my family and friends Tina and Mary Calovini, Brady Flynn and those wonderful Hershberger girls, Katie and Leona. Thank you Lord for putting wonderful winners in my life... and I don't just mean winners here on this earth! Here's to "Signs of GLORY" everywhere!



And we would love to come spill Glory all over you at your Church!

Proof for Parents... Yea!

The Bible says not to brag on ourselves, but to brag on Him...

We did many neat things this summer, however, I am most proud
of what our Lord is doing in the lives of my children!

You DO get what you plant, it IS worth what you sacrifice!  When
you plant "need seeds" instead of "weed seeds" you get teenagers
enthusiastic about Him... not Justin Beeber (or whoever is popular
this particular moment)

Creator vs World

Do You Plant the Truth From Your Creator,or Weeds From the World? Are you planting Truth or what the media tells you?

Your beliefs "plant" your thoughts. Your thoughts grow into your words. Your words germinate into your actions. Your actions dictate your habits... That is your harvest. So... what do you believe? What will your harvest be? Are you planting on purpose?


The world will tell you that you can have it all, that you should have it all, and right now, but the One who created the system tells you:
Genesis 8:22 "As long as the Earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall never cease" What you do today matters tomorrow and even 10 years from now.
Galatians 6:7 "Do not be deceived: God CANNOT be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

And even though other moms may try to convince you that what kids watch and see on the internet or TV doesn't change who they are, the One who makes up the rules says:
Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else guard your heart for it affects EVERYTHING you do"
1 Corinthians 15:33 "Bad company corrupts good character". Come on, we know this!

While many Christians will tell you that you and your family will get to heaven if you are a "good person"... the Author of life who created the way to Heaven says this:
Ephesians 2:8,9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast"
James 2:19 "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that - and shudder" - Wow.

You will always have too many miserable people to tell you that you are worthless, that your value is something to be determined by others because they believe you are here by accident, therefore, you don't really matter. However, the Creator of the whole world tells YOU this:

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart" - Remember this is what Jesus says about you. You were not an accident and it's okay to be different!
Psalm 50:15 "I want you to trust me in your times of trouble so I can rescue you and you can give me glory". Amazing, what a loving God!

In the Bible it tells us to put on the "full armor of God" in Ephesians. It talks about the "belt of Truth". Let me tell you, if you don't have the belt of Truth, you'll get caught with your pants down! Don't let that happen to your family!

Hollys Habitude: No Dancing with the Amish...

Okay, so there are some things you shouldn't do, but there are so many that you can! Focus on those.

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Do you plant the Truth from your Creator, or weeds from the World?

Are you planting Truth or what the media tells you?

Your beliefs "plant" your thoughts. Your thoughts grow into your words. Your words germinate into your actions. Your actions dictate your habits... That is your harvest. So... what do you believe? What will your harvest be? Are you planting on purpose?

Genesis 8:22 "As long as the Earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall never cease" Everyone has good seasons and bad, but you always get what you plant. What you do matters today, tomorrow and 10 years from now.

Galatians 6:7 "Do not be deceived: God CANNOT be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." That could be very very good... or very very bad.

And even though other moms may try to convince you that what kids watch and see on the internet or TV doesn't change who they are, the One who makes up the rules says:

Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else guard your heart for it affects EVERYTHING you do" Oh yeah, not many soft hearts in prison. Let's stop hardening the hearts of our youth. We plant by what goes in from their ears and eyes.

1 Corinthians 15:33 "Bad company corrupts good character". Come on, we know this!


While many Christians will tell you that you and your family will get to heaven if you are a "good person"... the Author of life, Who created the way to Heaven says this:

Happy Easter!!!

Wow, what an amazing time is Easter, what an amazing event. I never understood "the Lamb of God" until I began reading the Bible for myself - and I went to church 40 years prior to that. My mom was the organist so we never missed a Sunday, but I missed the meaning of the "Lamb of God".

But about 10 years ago, I began to read the Bible myself, instead of just 1/2 listening to another person. NOW I GET IT! I PRAY YOU GET IT! Read your Bible, it's alive.

In the Old Testament days, God said something must die to cover your sins. It was a perfect lamb without flaw, that was the Jewish Passover, the same time of year as our Easter. It was a picture of what was to come, Jesus, then as innocent as a perfect lamb. Jesus died at the same time the Jews were killing their lambs.

But unlike the lamb, Jesus had a choice. He didn't have to be tortured and butchered. HE ONLY DID IT BECAUSE HE SAW YOU. HE KNEW HE WAS YOUR ONLY HOPE. God says our sins our too great to be covered by the blood of an animal, the ONLY way to cover your sins on THAT day (your day, and we all have one coming) is to accept what Jesus did for you. How easy is that?!)

We serve a Lord that says "believe that I love you that much". Other religions have their God saying "prove it". Your God loves you so much He would have went through it, even if you were the only one. He personally cares about you, as an individual, and your life.

I hope you have the most wonderful Easter of all, as it represents newness, holiness and hope. Amen. Please let your kids know what Easter REALLY means. It means that at anytime you can be forgiven and start over. Wow.

Yes, Habitude. What really is Holly's Habitude? Well, it’s one of the things that people remember about me, my passion, my energy… my attitude. I think people wonder if I’m “really like this”, even at home. The answer is YES! That is why I call it my Habitude; my attitude comes from my habits… ergo Habitude.

I am in the Habit of doing things on purpose; things I think, say and do. We absolutely have the ability to control all of these things, it says so in the Bible, so I Act as if.

You have a habitude too, what habits are you doing to create your attitude? Are you telling yourself that you are created in the Almighty’s image and are loved so much that a life was given for you? Are you in the habit of speaking and acting like an Ambassador of the Lord? Or do we think we aren’t good enough, do we dwell in the land of compare. I CHOOSE my attitude just like everyone else CHOOSES theirs.

Don’t forget you have a “habitude” as well, so what is your attitude by habit?

Holly's Habitude: I just wanted to scream!

Today was one of those days that I could have screamed! You know those days, password complications, Computer problems, bill issues, hard decisions, money challenges, time constraints, kids running around, TV too loud, phone ringing but no one answering, everybody's hungry, everything is too loud and no one can find the toilet paper but you. Oh, and I remembered the last 30 minutes I had to go vote. You want to scream. I wanted to scream, but this day I didn't. I haven't really "lost it" in a while actually.

There really is a life of peace awaiting you. I know because our Creator tells us so in His Word. I love what I do because I live what I teach, so I know that it works! During my trials today I decided to focus on what I could accomplish, instead of pulling my hair out and wouldn't you know it, just like the Bible says, my patience paid off. It all works great now, thank you for your patience with my computer and e mail issues.

More here about the Free Christian Organizing and Coaching Webinars when you sign up that you are interested here. Simply put the word Webinar or Webmeetings on the contact form and get to me asap. We will be starting in less than 2 weeks! All you need is a computer and possibly a phone. I will make it very very easy for you, that is how I like it too.

Starting your New Year over

The "New Year" starts at many different points for many different people.  For the "Boyd Family" ours is today.  As most of you know, my husband's mother (Grammy) lived with us for 2 years: severe alzheimer's.   I took care of her full time.  She was a blessing for us, yet a relief for us, and an answered prayer for mercy for her when she passed away peacefully Monday.

Just know that it is okay to start your "New Year" at any point, you didn't miss the boat if your goals haven't been met yet, or even started yet.  You can do that today.   So "Happy New Year!"... amen!

Monday, January 9, 2012

Hanging in Limbo. But then, it never was about me.

How do you make the Creator of time, space and everything laugh?   Tell Him YOUR plans.   Let it sink in, then you'll get it.

I know for a fact, because it says right in Genesis, right from the beginning, that we get what we sow.  We do get a harvest, we do get what we have been consciously planting (or subconsciously).  But ultimately it is His plan and His timing, it will be the "season" of his Will, not our own.

As I have been home with "Alzheimer's Grammy" for the last 2 years, believe me, I must remind myself of ultimately Who is in control - and thank goodness!  One day, Grammy is up and alert, eating so much I believe she'll be pushing me in a wheelchair one day, but then the next day I'm thinking "oh no, this is it".  What an odd position this is, what an odd disease this is.

I just want to encourage you that we serve an Ever Present God, a God who loves us so much Jesus stepped out of perfect eternity into a world that hated and killed him... knowing it ahead of time.  When I stop to think about it, I can't get over it.  Pondering on this helps me a lot.

Take some time today to know that He is in control, and remember that He chose you, remember what He did for you and what He did for each one of us.  Amazing.  We never know when someone will pass, not really.  We should be sharing the only hope we really have, it's great news!

And remember, it is easier to relax and be thankful in an organized area.  Less mess, less stress.  God Bless!
