The joys and sorrows of a stay-at-home mom, wife, home economist and woman.

Passionate about… Organizing!

I love to organize. I am PASSIONATE about organizing (or possibly manic!) In fact, I have been on a bit of an organizing rampage lately (I’ll share soon!) I’m not sure if it is always a good thing, because I am never satisfied with the current state of my house. (Although my husband with ADD appreciates it when everything has a place (at least if he can remember where that place is!)

About a month ago, my mother-in-law, Becky, asked if I would be willing to take on a project for True Life Choice, a crisis pregnancy center here in Orlando. They do this really neat program where women who are pregnant or have recently had children can “earn while they learn” important skills for pregnancy and parenting. They can use the credit they earn to “buy” baby necessities, like diapers, food and formula, clothes, blankets, cribs, etc. The problem is, the room where they can shop is a bit of a disorganized mess, which is where I come in! I’m excited to have the opportunity to minister to women and babies in need using the gifts God has given me as I reorganize their resource room. I already have a plan for the space in my head… now to get to work!

Here are some before pictures. As I make progress on the room, I will continue to share pictures. It will probably take me a couple weeks to get everything in place as I can only work a few hours at a time because I have to work with Jonathan in tow, or get Nana or Grandma to babysit. Sorry the picture quality isn’t that great, I used the little camera I keep in my purse and should have used the flash since the light isn’t very good.

 






By the way, there is always a need for baby items, especially baby clothes and diapers (sizes 4 & 5 are always needed!) Perhaps a church group or play group  you are involved with would like to start a drive (they always get a lot during the holidays, but have needs year round.) If you would like to donate to this wonderful organization, I am always happy to drop items off for you. Just leave me a comment and I’ll try to make arrangements.
