2015 Day Planner for Moms

Did you read my last post about the woman at the library that told me I needed to get up earlier? I have spent some time thinking about her ideal, and instead… I am going to embrace something else.

Intention. That’s my plan in 2015.

2014 brought many great goals for me. And I wrote them down and attempted to keep up with them. But as with many ‘resolutions’ mine didn’t hold the year through.

One aspect of my goals last year was to keep our schedules more organized and I bought a planner. I used the Whitney English Day Designer. It was beautiful. I loved using it and it really helped me keep our family’s schedules on track. But… it was more for a working professional. I felt like I needed some help focusing on the bigger ideas of motherhood and not just a daily time keeper.

So through the year I made notes on what I needed to have to be at my best as a mom. First off I needed a mission. And goals in writing of what I want to achieve. And if you are like me you need a breakdown (and deadlines) to make sure the goals are completed. I needed TO DO lists. And I needed focus each day to complete a few things.

Because the hardest part of being a mom is not losing sight of the big picture, right? I know I have so many things that I want to accomplish but it seems unattainable because I don’t have hours at a time to designate to a task.

So, without further ado… here is the 2015 planner I have been working on the past year.

The 2015 Janalin Hood Day Planner is designed for moms who want to be intentional with their goals.

Pretty covers! We had to change from the original navy background because of binding colors. We did increase the size to 8×10!

A planning section begins the book! Ten pages to define what you want to accomplish, break down goals into steps, planning a steady rhythm-like day, and more.

Monthly View







The monthly spread has a column for notes on the left side. The monthly view notes all Federal Holidays. And finally the right column is where you make your dreams into plans- designating tasks, deadlines, and incentives to make things happen in 2015!

Week at a Glance







The weekly spread has your entire week before you for optimal planning. Monday through Friday are designed to help you get things done. Your day starts with designating the top three things that need to get done today. Then there are reminders of daily intentions (faith, love, fitness, phoning a friend, and reading). Finally your day starts with sections for morning and afternoon with spaces for lunch and dinner plans. It is no coincidence that there are four lines with check boxes for morning and afternoon! Plan on tracking the water you are drinking along with your day. Saturday and Sunday are light…. take a break and enjoy your family! Each week also has a quote or verse to keep you inspired.

At the end of the planner you will find a section for notes.

I will be photographing a hard copy next week! Yay! The planners will be ready to ship January 9th. The first printing will be January 2015-December 2015. But we will take ‘custom’ orders that allow you to choose what month you would like the planner to start, followed by 12 full months of monthly and weekly pages.

This year I will be sharing my mission and my intentions with you all and will blog about them. I’ve got some lofty goals on the paper now and I can’t wait to share them with you!!
