Ya’ll. When I first read about the Hope Planner, I legitimately had tears in my eyes. Now, granted, it doesn’t take much to bring out the tears these days (hello Publix commercials!) but wow… have you ever read something and just thought to yourself YES! This is me! They get me!
Heather Vreeland, the creator of the brand new Hope Planner (read her blog post here introducing it) is a wife, mother, founder of Occasions Media Group and the creator of The Celebration Society, St. Augustine Social and Littleature Children’s Books. In 2016, a simple desire to make an intentional habit of reading the Bible every day inspired her to design her own daily agenda that helped to re-organize her priorities and make room in her schedule to read God’s Word every day. That simple goal sparked new life and greater perspective in her normally stressed out days and became an agent of change in her life.
Hopefuel’s ministry is to create tools that help people find themselves, success, peace, forgiveness, happiness and ultimately find unshakeable trust in God through the ups and downs of life using both Biblical and common sense principles.
The Hope Planner is an all-in-one daily planner and prayer journal designed to help Christian women make room in her schedule to spend time with God, among all the other things that compete for her time and attention.
Every day features a place for devotional time and to-dos. It has a semi-annual 6 month layout to reduce bulk and excess “stuff” that we don’t need to carry around for a year. This is new for me, as I’ve never used a 6 month planner, but so far I really like it! The pages are just the right thickness (if you care about that kind of thing, like me) and I love the room for creativity that the simple, white pages present.
I love the space at the top of each day to focus on scripture and the layout of the week (there’s an extra page on Sundays for sermon notes). There’s also a place to track your water intake which is something I’m working on improving and a space to meal plan. Every detail is just so well thought out and accessible, I think it may be my most favorite planner I’ve ever used. And I’ve use a lot of planners in my day (planner nerds unite!).
It can be started at any time, because it comes with monthly tab labels and you apply the decals and fill in the monthly numbers yourself. So, if you’re still looking for a wonderful planner to use this year or the one you’re currently using just isn’t working for you, I can’t recommend the Hope Planner enough. Lastly, if my review hasn’t convinced you to bite the bullet and give it a try, just watch this video and if it speaks to your heart like it did mine, you’ll know this is the planner for you!
Thank you to Heather, founder of Hope Fuel for providing the planner featured in this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
