About this project
Bringing Spiritual transformation into your Daily Life using the messages of one of the most important books from the last 20 years!
20 Years ago a book was published called Conversations with God. This book shared powerful new insights about God and about life. Millions of people all over the world read this book and continued to follow the messages of the many books that followed. CWG quickly became a cornerstone in the spiritual world.
My name is Robert Evans and 15 years ago I picked up this book without knowing what to expect; in fact, I was energetically drawn to the book, as many people were. The messages in CWG quickly changed my life, helping me re-establish a new relationship with myself and God.
A couple of years later I was lucky to have meet and start to work with the author of this book series, Neale Donald Walsch. Since then we have collaborated on many projects, and I have helped share the messages of CWG with people all over the world.
6-weeks ago I decided to start a project in which I extracted from the many sources of CWG the messages that could be applied to a person's daily life.
I presented this new and unique resource to Neale and asked his permission to proceed with completing and producing this amazing resource. He agreed, and that is why I'm here today on Kickstarter... to ask you to help me finish and produce the CWG Life Planner.
I call this project CWG Life.
20th Anniversary of CWG
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the first book in the CWG series. I wanted to honor the impact it has had on my life and others by creating one of the most beautiful "life planners" I could imagine for long-time readers of CWG, and for people who are just now being introduced to the messages.
The first stage of this project has involved hours and hours of research to find the messages that can have the most impact on a person's daily experience. I scoured the books, then began designing the pages that organized these messages.
I didn’t just take words from the book, I looked for the messages that have the most relevance to our daily experience. To give you an idea of what I mean, there is a paradigm that CWG talks about called BE, DO, HAVE. Here's what that means...
Most people have the understanding that life works like this: Have-Do-Be. That is, when I HAVE the right stuff, I can DO the right things, and then I will get to BE what I want to be. For example: When I HAVE enough time, I can DO the thing called take a vacation, and I can BE the thing called rested and relaxed.
The trick in life is not to try to GET to be “happy,” or be “secure,” or whatever, but to start OUT being happy, or being content, or whatever, and go from there in the living of our daily lives.
So to help you focus on "being" first I have added this paradigm to the daily pages in the planner so you can decide each day what you will first "Be" then Do and then Have.
There are 1000's of pages of text from 30 books written by Neale on these life changing topics. This planner will highlight the best of these messages, to remind you and assist you in staying on track as you live a life of purpose and "beingness" every day.
In the 12-month’s worth of planner pages I will have extracted over 700 quotes, over 100 pages of excerpts from the books, and present them you in a way that supports a laser focus on transformation in your daily life.
I believe with all my heart this planner will change your life.
About The Planner
This planner is NOT a typical journal book. I wanted it to be something you are highly motivated to go to each day, and in order to make that happen I need to make it inspiring.
This is why I have decided to put into a "binder" format. First, I think a binder (faux and real leather options available) is more beautiful than a bound book. Second, I want you to use this planner for years and years to come, and because you can take pages out and put new pages into this planner, there will never be the need to replace it. You’ll simply re-fill it!
We made the binder small enough to allow you to easily carry it around with you, put it in your handbag, or keep it at your desk for easy access. The outside of the planner has a beautiful embossing of the CWG Life word logo, and inside you’ll find many extra goodies that will help you with your daily planning.
The Sections of the Planner
When you open up the planner and go through the pages you will find the following sections:
A Welcome Message from Neale and Planner Instructions
This resource is being created with the blessing and support of Neale, and he is contributing specific and unique content to it that will inspire you while you use it.
The Daily / Weekly Pages
The daily pages are designed to function like any other daily planner in which you schedule your day, write down your To Do’s, and prioritize your Action List, but we use CWG principles in the approach. Each week’s section takes up 16 pages, including start-of-the-week questions, a notes page, 7 Daily Pages, an end-of-week page, 3 journal pages, and a 2-page excerpt from a CWG book.
The Monthly Pages
Each month will include a monthly calendar to help you organize your month, a unique monthly exercise, and monthly notes page.
The overall planner will have sections from Neale's books, plus articles he has written that have not been published in a book—including some that he will write specifically for this planner. Neale says he would like to be “present” in this planner in a big way, moving through your months with you, and adding to your understanding of CWG by offering enriching and deepening explorations.
A planner is not complete without a notes section where you can capture ideas, create mind-maps, or just reflect. One page contains lines, while the other is open for mind-mapping and sketching.
This section explains why the concepts and principles are used in the design of this planner. I take explanations from the text to give you insight into each principle. You'll learn how you can use that message to transform your day, week or month.
This last section lists and explains the many resources, websites, online programs, and retreats offered around CWG and where to go to take your understanding to a new level.

Risks and challenges
The company that has designed and is producing this resource is lead by Entrepreneur Robert Evans. For over 20 years Robert has built and run successful businesses, including a publishing company. This is the 2nd planner offered on Kickstarter by Robert and based on the success and quick delivery of those previous rewards the risks for completing and producing this planner are very low.
However, when producing a resource like this in the quantities expected there can always be issues with production time tables, shipping delays or other third party delays. You are guaranteed a high quality reward as promised in the campaign. If anything does arise all Backers will be notified and taken care of, ensuring you being happy with supporting this project. Robert will be in constant communication throughout the campaign, to completion, to delivery and even after delivery of the rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
