The key to good organization is not a one-size-fits-all method. It is a unique plan that considers personality type, lifestyle, income level, and family schedule. Author and speaker, Karen Ehman believes that with her simple step by step process moms can recognize their own personal style of managing their households successfully and develop a unique plan that gives them the freedom to:
- manage their time wisely
- de-clutter and organize their homes
- plan menus, shop more efficiently, and become more comfortable and creative in the kitchen
- get children involved in pursuing an ordered life and home
- avoid the trap of overcommitment
- use practical tools to assist in organization
Getting and staying organized means more time for the important things in family life--concentrating on cultivating a close, personal relationship with the Creator, drawing His word into every aspect of living, and ultimately tying their children's heartstrings to God.

Dr. Patricia A. EnnisBurleson, TXAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5April 7, 2008Dr. Patricia A. EnnisBurleson, TXAge: Over 65Gender: femaleAs a professional Family and Consumer Scientist (Home Economist) I am delighted to recommend Karen Ehmans book THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO GETTING AND STAYING ORGANIZED. Karen does a masterful job of breaking home management theory into bite-sized pieces so that the clutter queen transitions into the wise woman described in Proverbs 31:27 who looks well to the ways of her household. With warmth and enthusiasm Karen provides numerous tips, strategies, forms, and recipes to create your own plan to get and stay organized. A special feature is the From the Heart of a Kid inserts written by Karens daughter Mackenzie. If you would like for your family to rise up and bless you I urge you to purchase, read, and apply the timeless concepts contained in The Complete Guide to Getting and Staying Organized.Pat Ennis, Establishing Chairperson of the department of Home Economics-Family and Consumer Sciences at The Masters College and co-author of BECOMING A WOMAN WHO PLEASES GOD, DESIGNING A LIFESTYLE THAT PLEASES GOD, PRACTICING HOSPITALITY, THE JOY OF SERVING OTHERS, and author of PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT, THE FINE ART OF BECOMING A GODLY WOMAN.
Megan5 Stars Out Of 5January 25, 2008MeganI have read many books on organization, but none have inspired me the way Karen Ehman's new book, The Complete Guide to Getting and Staying Organized has. Karen's book isn't a "one solution fits all moms" kind of book. Instead, it gently guides you through exercises that allow you to formulate your own plan, based on your family's unique situation, and your unique personality traits as a mom.Often in my quests to get organized (there have been many), I have forgotten that I have a husband and children whose feelings I need to consider and whose help I should request. One of my favorite parts of this book is the "From the Heart of a Kid" section written by Karen's daughter, Mackenzie. She gives advice on teaching kids to be more organized and gives great pointers for getting kids to help.Karen encourages you to take time to reflect on each section, so I haven't finished the book yet. Already though, I have used Mackenzie's ideas, and while I was recently out of town, my 7 year old began sorting through her toys and donated them to a charity. This time, I really think we will declutter our home. I look forward to the day when we don't have to search high and low for lost library books, matches to socks, misplaced car keys, or the dog.
