February Mind Organization for Moms Session

Hello Moms! Are you overwhelmed about all the things you need to do as a mom then on top of that, all you have to do for the new year?  Well I am excited to announce again that I will do two sessions where I will teach you how to use Mind Organization for Moms.   What is Mind Organization for Moms? Click here to read more in depth about it. About 2 years ago, I teamed up with April Perry, co-founder of Power of Moms, and began to teach this information to other moms as well as plan and facilitate 2 day “Power of Mom Retreats”. This is what April Perry, creator of this wonderful program, has to say about it: Let me guess…you’re pretty stressed out sometimes.  You have hundreds of things on your mind and dozens of balls in the air and even though you feel like you’re busy every minute, you can’t seem to make a dent in your “to do” list.  Am I close?Mothers are the busiest group of multi-taskers out there, and if anyone needs their minds organized, it’s us!  We want to relax and enjoy our families, but is it possible to have a great time with our loved ones AND respond to all the pressing demands? Absolutely. Although I can’t make “the madness” stop, I CAN teach you how to get your brain in order so that you will feel completely almost on top of your life once and for all.  Sound like a plan? Based on the best-selling book Getting Things Done®,  by David Allen, I (April) have put together a simple, powerful program designed specifically for busy mothers.  I’ve included mom-friendly instructions, photos, and checklists to support you every step of the way. Here is a picture of my system that I used.  I’ve changed my system since then and have tweaked it over the last 2 years that I have been using the Mind Organization for Moms system.   What I would like to do is give you access to this wonderful system as well as explain to you, in two sessions (one as a group and the other in your home), what I’ve found works for me to simplify how I manage all my “Mom” duties and avoid all the stress and overwhelm that we often experience as moms.   Price The regular price for just the Mind Organization for Moms package is $75, NOT including any personal training on how to quickly use the system to unclutter your mind and simplify your life.   The price to attend the workshop is normally $50 in addition to the Mind Organization for Moms system. However, I worked out a deal with April so you can get the system and the workshop session for $75 total.  That’s $50 off the regular price for the system and the two session workshop.   Here’s how you can attend: 1- Go here and create a login for the PowerOfMoms website. 2- Get the Mind Organization for Moms system for $38 (you must be logged in to see this special price) 3- Email me to let me know that you’ll be joining us for this mind blowing workshop. Session 1: In the first session, we will introduce the program to you, so you can walk away with a very real plan of how to unclutter your mind and release the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed (there is one little trick that makes this happen much easier than you think!).  You will leave with the tools to collect and process all those things floating around in your mind causing stress and overwhelm. Session 2: During the second session, I will personally follow-up with you at your house on your progress, answer any questions, walk you...

streamlined digital list & podcast

For those of you who are registered with the Power of Moms Mind Organization Program today you received an email from April Perry (creator of Mind Organization for Moms) and you saw my name.  I was thrilled that April asked me to do a podcast with her and talk about what I do with the system and how it works for me digitally. I am such a digital person and have gone away with no paper lists.  I have learned alot from this program and I am still learning how to tweek it to my liking even after a year and a half of faithfully doing it.  I love teaching others how to incorporate it into their lives as mothers because it will change you. Here is the podcast that I did with her. ToDo App for Mind Organization for Moms Part 1 is my ToDo app video tutorial that shows you how to integrate Mind Organization for Moms on your IPhone.  I have other videos on my YouTube channel as well that will continue on what I have done. April wrote a post about it...

LA retreat recap

I can’t believe its already come and gone. We received word from April and Saren that they’d like us to help them do another retreat here in Southern California back in November and now we just finished it up. Boy does time fly by. It was such a great experience once again to work with them and to be among great moms. I enjoyed my time getting to know many of them through email correspondence but even better putting their faces to names on my google spreadsheet. I took Stratton up with me and he was a doll! Just sat in his little red seat most of the time and just smiled at all the ladies. You wouldn’t have even known he was there except for one time where he wanted to make sure everyone around him noticed him with his shriek of a laugh. Susan, Amy and I drove up together and just enjoyed ourselves chatting the 2 hour drive up and getting anxious to be among moms. Some who truly enjoy what they do and some who just wanted to be sure this was the thing they were meant to do. I was touched by some who have been through many trials and had to overcome on top of being a mother to a handful of children. Our discussion groups were great and very intimate because of a smaller group size so you got to see and hear from others who would less otherwise participate in the big group setting. The sad part about the whole weekend for me personally is that I only wrote down about 20 sentences of notes! Can you believe that? I am very ashamed but then again I was here and there and making sure everyone else was happy. Besides the topics were discussed at our previous retreat but I did take away alot of new ideas that I hope to implement. I got the privilege to team up with April to help her teach Mind Organization to them. Boy that was so much fun! I am so in love with this and want to spread it like wildfire. I got to share with them how I personally do the system because I have more of the technology twist to it compared to April who is more pen and paper kind of gal. I feel so blessed to have come into this great organization when I did and to be apart of such great women who want to make a difference and I hope that I will continue to pursue this course and to help other mothers realize their potential and the great sacrifices they make each day to help their children. I am truly blessed! To read more about the retreat go read April’s or Saren’s. Also our photographer for the event Emily Barton also posted some pictures up. Who’s ready for a San Diego Retreat? Already have a few guest speakers lined up so come fall time it could be happening. Susan presenting on Love Languages The people in charge. Susan, Me, Allyson, April, Lisa (hostess), Amy (SIL), and Saren Half of the group because we didn’t get on the group shot till an hour after it was over! Sorry for those of you who weren’t able to be in the picture. Last but not least my baby boy Stratton was a gem he was...

Updated Mind Organization for Moms

I’ve been in my new home now for 6 months and at my last house my system looked like this. I have updated my system since Sept 2010 and this is how it looks today. I have made it work for me! I got rid of alot of paper with my system and have strictly used the “ToDo” application on my IPhone. If you’d like to read more about it read about it here. I have my phone with me at all times and I don’t mind typing in everything instead of using a pen and paper. However in my weekly review I do write stuff down on paper still but not pressing items. My command central looks mostly still the same like my last post. I didn’t change that area much besides the little boards to the left and right of my monitor. The left board is my menu planning board which says, Week of: and lists the days of the week. The right board is actually just a blank board but I put on it my Salad Making 101 list so that I always have it seen so that I will actually make them! I also have a “I’m Bored” jar that I saw on Pinterest for my children when they need an activity to do. The calendars are pretty self explanatory and I purchased my whole wall system at Target. Great prices. The middle corkboard just has a picture of Christ and a woman to help me rememeber that I can’t do it alone and it also has my scripture study schedule for the year. The middle rectangle is my Routines and Responsibilities board. Here is the up close picture Then the board to the left of the Routines and Responsibilities is just a “fun” board to put whatever I want. I just have a family picture there and it also has 3 spots for keys that I can hang. To the right is the 4 cubby system and I use this for my bills and my papers that I need to file. To the left of my monitor I have my inbox area. The top one is the inbox and the bottom one is my Projects Support Material section. I only use file folders for my support materials rather than a big cubby system like April does cause she’s got alot more projects than I do. Here is the up close picture of my file folders. Finally the last thing to the left of the inbox area is my Weekly Review and Tickler expandable file carrier. I bought them at the Container Store a few years ago and went back to find more of them but they don’t sell them anymore. That’s it in a nut shell. I will post a video shortly going through it step by...

M.O.M. Workshop

Hello Moms or Soon to Be Moms! We are excited to announce a two part workshop where we will teach you how to use Mind Organization for Moms. What is Mind Organization for Moms? This is what April Perry, creator of this wonderful program, has to say about it: Let me guess…you’re pretty stressed out sometimes. You have hundreds of things on your mind and dozens of balls in the air and even though you feel like you’re busy every minute, you can’t seem to make a dent in your “to do” list. Am I close? Mothers are the busiest group of multi-taskers out there, and if anyone needs their minds organized, it’s us! We want to relax and enjoy our families, but is it possible to have a great time with our loved ones AND respond to all the pressing demands? Absolutely. Although I can’t make “the madness” stop, I CAN teach you how to get your brain in order so that you will feel completely almost on top of your life once and for all. Sound like a plan? Based on the best-selling book Getting Things Done®, by David Allen, I (April) have put together a simple, powerful program designed specifically for busy mothers. I’ve included mom-friendly instructions, photos, and checklists to support you every step of the way. The first night we will introduce the program so you can walk away with a very real plan of how to get your brain organized. You will leave with the tools to collect and process your mind. The second night we will follow-up with you on your progress, answer any question that might have arisen, bounce ideas off each other, and share with one another what we did that worked (and even what didn’t work). Before you come For you to be most effective on your path to organization we are asking that you carve out some quiet time (no more then an hour) to write down everything on your brain. Here are some ideas of what might be on your list: 1. Tasks that need to be done right away (paying car registration before it expires on next week) 2. Things that need to eventually get done (like cleaning out a child’s closet) 3. Anything you want to do but really doesn’t need to be done (like crafting or reading a certain book for fun) 4. Traits you want to develop (learn a new language or become more patient) Basically this list should cover anything and everything that you need/want to do, be, or become. We recommend starting this list right away and keeping it on hand. That way as more items come to your mind you can quickly get them out of your head. We will show you what to do with that list, at our first...
