Cruciform Press is an up and coming publishing company that works hard to give you Biblical Truth,Technology and Simplicity! Each book is written in a short, clear, and well edited (Can I get an AMEN!?) way that can span from young adults to pastoral staff.
I am so glad I stumbled across Cruciform Press .
All books are specifically and conveniently available at the same price and downloadable in various e-book formats and audio. Of course, if you are “I’ve got to have a nice paper book in my hand to highlight.” Like me..ahem..you can order through snail mail. Although, I just printed it out e-book style. Now that I am rambling on to the book I reviewed.
The Organized Heart has smacked me between the eyes! I have related and soaked in every word Staci has written. She addresses women’s struggles with perfectionism, pleasing man, and business. Staci has a gentle way of writing that drew me in and then called my idols out at the same time. As I am reading I’m thinking “Aww yes I have done that..WAIT that’s an IDOL, BUT..well..I just, hmm Wow I need to pray! ”
She addresses more than your lack of organization in your home. She addresses the most important thing..your heart.
Staci says “My entire adult life could be described as a series of unfinished good intentions: notes never sent, kind words never spoken, calls never made and help never given.”..... “If I could JUST follow a certain system , I could enjoy a life of organized bliss. I could float through my spotless house.” Ch1
Staci points out specifically four idols that hinder our work for God: leisure, busyness, perfectionism and possessions.
As you read through each short chapter there are questions for you to journal through and apply. I think that is what kept me from flying through the book. I had to process my motivations for certain behaviors I am seeing in my life.
“I mistook personal desire and opportunity for divine calling.” “I feared that this was the only chance I would get to use my gifts! What if..” The Organized Heart
