I’m excited to announce …

Hi Friends,

When I count the people I am most thankful for in my life, you are among them. You have chosen to invite me into your life through an inbox or rss feed, and it’s an honor I don’t take lightly.

So when I’ve got some good news, I want to share it with you.

And the good news is  my next book is now available for pre-order through Proverbs 31 Ministries.

If you'r tired of putting of things you know you should do, you'll enjoy Taming the To-Do List: How to Choose Your Best Work Every Day by Glynnis WhitwerIt’s called Taming the To-Do List: How to Choose Your Best Work Every Day.  Although the title sounds like another time management book, this is far from it. In this book, I’m tackling the tricky subject of procrastination.

I call it tricky  because it’s a self-defeating habit we all do to some degree or another. Procrastination is defined as willingly delaying that which is your best interest to do now.  It means we could do it, but we choose not to.

Here are a few of the things I’ve procrastinated in the past:

  • taking care of minor health needs (like dental work)
  • shopping for clothes in a size I don’t like to admit
  • dieting
  • exercise
  • following my dream to write
  • organizing family photos (actually, I’m still procrastinating on this one)

So WHY do we do this? Why do we put off what would benefit it us?  Or benefit our family? Or keep us in obedience to God’s call on our lives?

And that my friends, is where it gets complicated.

I’ve tried to address procrastination from a woman’s everyday perspective, but also brought God’s truth and power into the message. There are lots of smart people writing on issues like this, but  I can’t tackle this kind of problem without God’s wisdom and power.

The other piece of good news is Proverbs 31 has selected my book as their fall Online Bible Study (insert squeals of joy!).  I am so, so excited about this. And I would LOVE it if you would join us.  The study doesn’t start until September 8th, so you’ve got lots of time to get kids back to school then invest in your personal growth with us.

Finally, one more celebration! If you purchase the book through Proverbs 31 Ministries, not only do you help support all we do for free (including the First 5 app that launched last week) but you get a free PDF I created called 5 Habits of Women Who Get Things Done. We’ll send that to you right away so you can get started while you wait for the book.

Thank you for subscribing to my blog. As I mentioned, it’s an honor to have you share a bit of your day with me.
