Written by a professional organizer, Put Your House In Order by Debbie Williams is a course in time management and clutter control. Like parenting skills, homemaking skills are mostly a learned behavior, rather than being entirely instinctual. Being quite "challenged" myself, I was very blessed by Debbie William's advice and HOMEwork. Like it or not, piles of clutter and mountains of dirty laundry do add unnecessary stress to our lives. With some planning, some action and a little upkeep, that source of agony can be taken care of.
Put Your House In Order reveals tips and tricks to help you do just that, with Biblical themes and lessons throughout. It is biblically inspired therapy for those who consider their homes budding disaster zones.Put Your House In Order is a must read for all of us seeking a balance between career, family, yourself and your dishes.

Strategies and Encouragement to get the job done May 7, 2003
In "Put Your House In Order" author Debbie Williams shares a Christian perspective on keeping an organized and functional house. This includes not only how to organize your clutter but also guidance on things like avoiding interruptions and learning to say "No". She picks very appropriate passages from the Bible and uses them as encouragement.
It is a small book but contains appropriate advice that is direct and to the point. There are larger and more thorough books on cleaning up your clutter and organizing your house but they generally do not include much in the way of words of encouragement. That is what makes this book different from similar ones.
Because she does discuss organizing time and tasks as well as clutter, I would have to say that there is one point she does not make that I have found very useful. She discusses using a to-do list and prioritizing that list, which is good. However, I have found that people often give up on such lists after a short while. One of the reasons people give up is because as they start to do their number one priority items people tend to do the ones they prefer to do first and the ones they really don't want to do are held off until last. So, as a reward for completing a task that you don't mind doing you get to do something that you like less. Often it is much more effective to do the things you don't really want to do first so that as you get one of them done you are rewarded with doing tasks that you like better.
Other than adding that point, the book was thorough and enjoyable and is especially recommended for someone who wants to organize their life but need that extra encouragement that this book provides.
