Happy 2016! Who needs to get organized this month? Here’s a free weekly calendar printable that may help! I love to write things out and plan but it’s been awhile since I’ve done it well. I used to use Moleskine planners, but those got too hard to find. Then I started writing my to-do lists on my smart phone, but now I can’t keep up with that either. At this point, my life as a wife/stay at home mom/grocery runner/church volunteer/friend/neighbor/event goer/etc., has gotten to the point where I just can’t keep it all straight without a large, impossible-to-miss calendar that sits right next to my kitchen sink that I can’t help but see at least 38 times a day.
So, in an attempt to get better organized a few months ago I began scouring the internet for free calendar printables and finally found one I loved by Michelle Lea. I’ve used her calendar faithfully every week, but her version spans over two printed pages and I wanted a weekly calendar that fit onto just one. So I made my own and thought I’d pay it forward by offering it to you guys!
Getting into the habit of planning out my week each Sunday evening has made life so much more manageable. I get easily overwhelmed when my mental to-do list starts piling up, but as soon as I get that to-do list on paper a good portion of that stress melts away. My favorite part of this new calendar is the bible verse! It’s Proverbs 16:3 and it’s a very necessary reminder that the way I spend my time from day to day matters. When I’m knee deep in diapers and laundry and the kitchen is a wreck and the boys are arguing, my life seems anything but “purposeful”. But if I’m doing my best to actively commit my daily work to Christ- just as Proverbs 16:3 commands- it helps me stay encouraged and, well, sane. I fully believe that the business of running a household is a very good, God honoring thing, because that’s what the bible teaches! But it only works if I can keep my head on straight, hence the calendar.
