My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Organized Heart is a small, but powerful guide to help you understand what you really need to get your life under control. So many of us long to be organized and yet find ourselves frustrated over and over again. Instead of giving you 101 things to do to make your life more organized, Eastin writes about the heart of the matter.
This is a Cruciform Press book which means it’s easy to read for all of us – even those who don’t have a lot of time. The chapters are few and short. Each one ends with a 3 to 4 questions that help you as an individual process what you have just read.
I enjoyed being challenged by this book and also rejoicing as I saw places where I have grown. This thought-provoking read made me stop and think through why I do what I do and where I need to change. I also really appreciated this book because I did not have to wade through list after list of ideas to find the one that fits my life. Instead this is the frame work, therefore being applicable to all, and giving room to apply the lessons learned in a way that really works for you.
I want to recommend this book to anyone who is not organized and desires to be – this will be the encouragement you need and probably haven’t gotten. For those who already are organized, you need to read this in order to check your motivations. And lastly, for those who don’t know where you fit or maybe know you’re not organized and have no desire to be, you will be challenged by this book, too.
