This Is My Life -- Daily #Planners for 2015

My life is CRAZY.  And I'll bet yours is, too.  I’m a homeschooling mama and personal chauffeur of four kids.  I'm the “keeper” of two inside dogs and cats, and three outside dogs.  Plus a hubby.  I'm a children's and middle school minister, a community volunteer, a robotics coach, a Girl Scout mom, and a blogger who needs to get organized.

I'm also a bit of a planning junky.  I keep a color-coded calendar that syncs to my phone to make sure everyone gets where they need to be when they need to be there.   That serves me well for certain things, but I've been looking for something more to help me be a better me and keep a more organized home lately.  I've stalked my friend's planners trying to find one that meets my needs and have searched online looking for what my head thinks my heart needs.

I like cute, colorful, plenty of space to write, spots for personal growth, physical health, and planning helps for family maintenance all within a budget.  Whew.  That's A LOT to look for in searching out the perfect planner, I know.  It's been a tough thing to find.

But, I've finally found it. Every single thing I've looked for was waiting for me in the This Is My Life Planner designed by my friend Melissa over at A Virtuous Woman.   I'm thrilled and excited and can't wait to share it with YOU.  Did I mention that EVERY SINGLE THING I needed was right here ready for me?  2015 is going to be my year.  

Cute, Colorful, Perfect
The This Is My Life Planner is absolutely perfect for me.  It can be printed and bound if that strikes your fancy or printed and 3-hole punched if that better suits your needs.  (That's what works best for me so that I can add important notes and reminders from church and Scouts and tumble and piano and soccer and FTC right where they need to go.)  It is filled with scripture references and encouraging quotes AND has freebie add-ons to make it fully customizable to fit your exact needs.  I'm enjoying the ease of the Daily Blog Checklist to keep my little corner of the web in top shape and the Bible Study Pages are perfect to keep my heart focused on JESUS.  You can even add folder pages to store receipts that you might need or prayer pages to keep track of the people who ask you to pray for them.  I don't know about you, but that's HUGE for me.  If I say I'm praying, then I want to make sure that I'm praying.

The This Is My Life Planner offers 52 weeks of checklists for Household Chores, Weekly Chores, Routine Reminders, and Health Reminders (I definitely need to drink more water and the accountability of the check-off chart makes it easier to follow through.)  There are two-page spreads for monthly calendars, Weekly Menu Planning spaces, pages to Journal on, plus holiday planning sheets already printed in the months where they belong.  (You can have a quick glance at what's left of my Christmas shopping list and see the beginning stage of planning for our annual New Year's Eve blowing up of the Christmas tree party below.)

Making a list and checking it twice.

I'm working on filling in the important dates that I already have for 2015 and praying over the front of the Planner as I pen our Family Mission Statement and consider what home really means to me.  I've already determined my One Word for the year and am planning to unveil it on the blog next week.  It has been very evident what GOD is calling me to do over the next year.  

Beginning this new planner has helped me to focus on the Household Projects that we'd like to actually accomplish in the coming year and I'm convicted to live my life full of PURPOSE as I re-evaluate my time commitments.    This Is My Life has completely blessed me and I just know it will be a blessing to you and your family, as well.  What a perfect time for you to work on organization and discipleship in your own life as the year draws to a close.  Won't you join me in making 2015 the BEST YEAR YET?
