How many of you have a “faith planner”? This is where I keep sermon and Bible study notes, as well as prayer requests and any other notes. I’m in love with the planner trend right now and I knew I wanted to combine my planner addiction with my faith.
I use a medium kikki.K planner which is equivalent to the “personal sized” planners. I chose this size over the A5 planners because it fits so nicely in my purse and nightstand and I like to carry it around with me. Sermon notes generally need more than one page of notes, but I’m ok with that because I like having it all together with my other notes and prayer requests which don’t need as much room.
So, let’s take a look at how I have it set up.
In the pockets, I have washi tape on a Bella Blvd Invisibles™ that I cut down to 3″x4″ and wrapped washi tape around. I also have journal cards from the cut apart sheets stuck in the pockets, enamel shape stickers and some sticker sheets.
I like to include additional paperclips in my pockets and I used stickers from the Whatever Is Lovely Collection and adhered them back to back on a paper clip then added the word stickers from the Genesis Collection to finish them off… this is such a fun way to decorate your planner or even use in your Bible to mark a page.
Now we’re on to our dashboard. I love to use the Clear Cuts for my dashboard. They are great for attaching sticky notes to. I made this one a little wider than normal because I didn’t want to cut off the verse. I also punched a card to go behind the verse to make it legible and pop out from the super cute divider I have behind it.
To make the dividers I cut down papers to 3.75″ x 6.75″ and adhered two together using a glue stick. I made three dividers, so I cut down six papers. This gives the divider a little more weight and stability. Once dry, I punched them and was able to decorate them. That’s my favorite part. I make sure to add a tab and label them each for each section.
At the end, I have another Invisibles™ cut down to the same size as the dividers. I do this to protect the paper inserts from getting wrinkled and marked up from the back notepad.
For the notepad, I like to decorate the front, so I cut it the same width of the notepad and a little longer so that I can fold it over and glue to the cardboard backing. Then I decorate the front of it with stickers. I generally leave a lot of blank space on the front so that I can paperclip cute journal cards or quotes I like or want to see when I’m looking at my planner.
Of course, I add my favorite pen to the pen loop.
I like to change out my dashboard and dividers often. It always makes me happy when I open my planner to have scripture right there to meditate on and inspire me as I’m taking notes or praying.
