Take Control of Your Space, Time, Energy, and Money to Live on Purpose
Reclaim your life from all the things
Stuff. We have too much of it. Clothing, kitchen gadgets, electronics, home decor. More of it arrives at our homes all the time, and it takes up an incredible amount of our space, time, energy, and money. But do all these possessions truly make us happier?
Certified professional organizer and bestselling author Jennifer Ford Berry says no. Rather than living for our stuff, true joy is found in knowing and living out our purpose. In Make Room, Berry shows you how to have a more meaningful and intentional life by defining your purpose, planning your time, decluttering your home, and much more.
If you long to get rid of what distracts you from living out your God-given calling, this book is your roadmap to success, offering principles to recognize and eliminate anything that is cluttering up your life.

Amy Debrucque, author of Embolden and host of the Life On Purpose podcast
"I firmly believe every person, at some time in their life, has to ask themselves a vital question: Is this all there is?

"While I've never been a fan of clutter, I've definitely been guilty of putting too much stock in gaining material things. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Thankfully, in Make Room, Jennifer graciously challenges us to value purpose over possessions. She dares us to dream about the right things and helps us to declutter not only our drawers but the darkest corners of our hearts, so that we can make room to fully invite God and others in. When we choose to discover and live out our purpose, rather than chasing possessions, we invest in what truly matters. Matthew 6:19 encourages us not to store up for ourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy. Jennifer understands the merit in this truth, and will inspire you to treasure and invest in the things that give the most rewarding returns."
Danielle Macaulay, author, speaker, creator of the Married Up podcast, and TV personality on the marriage enrichment show A Better Us
"Make Room is a blessing for readers in every season of life as we navigate through messaging and marketing that wants us to believe our lives and homes should look a certain way. Jennifer's guidance--from the bigger picture to the smaller how-to steps--helps us purge literal and spiritual clutter in such a clear way that readers will walk away feeling clarity before they've even touched a single possession."
Lori Beth Auldridge, MA, MFA, host of the Elevating Motherhood podcast
"Jennifer writes with tremendous passion and purpose! Her ability to capture the heartbeat behind stewarding our lives well is what gives this book such power. You won't just walk away with a practical to-do list but with a strong 'why' to back it up and sustain it for the long haul. You'll feel like you have a personal organizer in your corner, rooting for you, guiding you, and ultimately pointing you to Christ, your ultimate reason to steward your life with excellence!"
Laura Dudek, founder of Ruah + Ember, author, and Christian speaker
"Jennifer is a thoughtful, caring organizer and life-changer. Her approach to organizing will help you not only in your home but also in your treasured family relationships and the rest of your life. I highly recommend her if you are searching for peace and calm in your home sanctuary."
Jen Kilbourne Obermeier, founder of Pro Organizer Studio
"This book is so much more than a decluttering handbook. It's an invitation to live with intention and to step into your God-given purpose and live it out through your home, possessions, priorities, and life in general. Through Scripture, heartfelt prayers, and practical insights, Make Room will inspire you to live a fuller, more joyful, and meaningful life."
