In her first book, 12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman, Lane Jordan provided women of all ages with hundreds of time-saving tips and biblical advice on how to organize, manage, and balance their life and family roles. Now she shares her insight and experience on how to be an exceptional mom.
Demonstrating why everything a mom does can be a benefit to family and loved ones, Jordan helps busy mothers discern what is really important--and what isn't--and become more effective for God's kingdom. Readers will discover how to be more organized, reduce stress, and gain more time to grow into the women God intends.
Includes practical hints on managing time wisely, smart meal preparation, having fun with your kids, education, disciplining children with love, maintaining emotional and spiritual health, and much more.

Stephanie Brooks5 Stars Out Of 5January 26, 2010Stephanie BrooksI am a 33 year old mother of 5 children. I received this book from my grandmother who won it as a door prize at a luncheon she was attending. Of course she gave it to me because she knows how I am always open to new ideas and I love to read, but what she didn't know is that I had recently prayed for a little help getting a handle on the new size of my family. (My youngest three children are 3 and under.) When she gave me this book, I thought, "Great another self-help book! But still I was compelled to read it out of respect for her. The title of this book and the cover make it appear so simple, and it is a quick and easy read, but it is so much more than a simple "self-help" book. This book is the single most helpful book I have ever read. It has had a profound impact on my family and me. This book is simply deep in a life-changing way when read with an open mind, taken to heart and put into action. I read it through once, then started back through while putting it into action. It also reminded me of simple instruction I have slightly forgotten throughout the daily grind. It is motivating and reassuring. For any mother who could use a little improvement in her life but not quite sure where to start, this book is a must-read.
Katie Gorsky2 Stars Out Of 5September 2, 2009Katie GorskyHmm. This is an interesting book. One I've enjoyed reading, but it isn't what you think it would be...or at least what I thought it would be. I was looking for a book with helpful hints of say, how to organize kid's clothes and toys, or suggesting making a monthly menu and pantry inventories. This is more a "why to be organized and let's talk about the benefits to being organized." I must say I never thought of child obedience as a way to be organized, but it makes sense. I think the author, in a plight to appeal to many, has written a very general book. It's geared toward all: single, married, working outside the home, public school, homeschool, etc. These are all very different family dynamics and it's hard to blanket everyone with the same organizational strategies, which I think the author realizes. I wish it went a little deeper into systems that might work, and a little less deep into areas that the author really isn't an expert on, ie: nutrition. I'd borrow before I bought, as I don't think it's one to re-read or pass along from mom to mom.
Rebecca Jerome5 Stars Out Of 5November 26, 2007Rebecca JeromeWhen I received this book I started to read it. Withn the first step it started helping me and encouraging me that I am doing the right thing for my family. Each step helps me to grow more and more closer to my goal to get my house and family in order to make our life easier. I would definitely recommend this book to others that are in the desire to have their home in some kind of order but have problems doing it themselves as I do. Thank You.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am now an empty-nester and not too happy about it! One daughter is married and the other is in college. I grew up in Atlanta, GA., one of 7 children! I love the whole concept of families: being together, supporting each other, etc. I love the outdoors, all sports, reading, writing, Bible studies, decorating and my girls!
What was your motivation behind this project? Mainly, it is to encourage Moms who will get discouraged at some point(s) during their mothering years. I loved being a MOM! But raising them was difficult at times; hard; depressing; and at times feeling like I had failed, along with guilt and hopelessness. I wanted to compile a book that would cover all aspects of being a MOM: along with how to recover their own person.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Moms of today are overwhelmed with all that is required in raising children ALONG with keeping up with a job, the home, meals, laundry, errands, activities. My prayer is that Moms will gain a better perspective on what is and isn't important each day; how to really minister to their children amongst the day to day grind. I want them to gain JOY! in being a Mom.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I speak to many Moms across the country and so my main source of inspiration in writing this is for all the precious Moms out there who are trying so hard but feeling like failures in different areas.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Yes, I would like for them to know about my other book: 12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman. And they can go to my web site for more information about my cookbook and CD: www.LaneJordan.com
