In this season of being mom to little ones, I found myself stuck in the busyness of life. I also found myself worrying instead of enjoying. I realized I needed to spend time knowing God by being in His Word and praying, and this was missing from my day to day life.
After talking with some friends, I was encouraged to make the most of the mundane moments of my day - the washing dishes and laundry and cleaning - and focus my thoughts during those moments by either praying or memorizing Scripture. As I started doing this, my outlook started to change, I worried less often, and I realized I am making an eternal impact while praying at my kitchen sink. So, I set out to design tools for the Christian believer who's doing life like me and searching for time to make an impact, but doesn't have time to spare.
There are so many features that make the No Ordinary Day Planner unique.
First - the BINDING! All planners will have a silver metal coil for strong, sturdy, never lose your pages binding!
You will select which size planner is best for you. Desktop at 8.5"x11" or the compact size at 7"x9".
You will also select a cover! This might be your toughest decision with three beautiful options! You can choose from Heaven & Earth, Pink Perfection OR Psalm 90:14 with our signature, globe logo.
Another favorite - the 4-color ink really pops on 80lb all white paper! With all new colors for our 2018 No Ordinary Day Planner, every month the colors really shine! The bleed proof paper also allows you to use whatever type of colorful pens you love! Your ink won't smear, smudge or go all the way through.
You'll also select the type of layout that best fits how you process time. Select monthly with no weekly layouts, vertical weekly layout or horizontal layout. Both vertical and horizontal layouts include the 2 page monthly spread.
The No Ordinary Day planner is designed to help you focus on making an eternal impact in the tasks of everyday life. This is accomplished by keeping Scripture focused on the character of God before you every day and having an unreached nation & tools on how to pray for that nation before you every day.
I used to find myself wanting to pray for the nations where Christ is not proclaimed, but I never knew where to start. In the 2018 No Ordinary Day planner, we took out all the research and included a new nation each month for you to learn about and pray specifically for. There are suggested ways you can pray and even Scripture you can pray over that specific nation. The 2018 countries are Cambodia, Chad, China, Israel, Japan, Nepal, Somalia, Syria, Tajikistan, The Gambia, Tunisia, and United Arab Emirates.
Other helpful pages in the No Ordinary Day Planner for you are to-do lists and notes pages. You will find these for every month, and we have even added extra note and to-do pages in the back of the planner for meetings, grocery lists or daily to-do's!
There's no longer a need for an extra notebook to keep track of prayer requests. Each month there's a page called Prayer & Praise available for you to keep track of prayer requests and how the Lord has answered prayer for each month.
Each month has a new attribute of God as the focus of that month. In the weekly layouts, you'll have new Scripture verse(s) each week that reflect that specific attribute of God. Every planner will have an attribute page that provides a definition and quotes about that month's specific attribute of God's character. Here you can think about what's coming ahead for the month and set goals, reflect on what you're grateful for and plan for upcoming events. The 2018 No Ordinary Day Planner has all new attributes for this upcoming year!
One of my favorite features of the planner is that each month, you'll receive original artwork based on a hymn or praise song that reflects that month's attribute. And each month has brand new, original artwork for the 2018 planner! You will want to frame these they are all so beautiful!
I make the same goal every year - to memorize Scripture! These beautiful, business card sized Scripture memory cards are designed to go anywhere you go! Put them on your kitchen counter, in your car, hang them on a mirror, put them on a ring for easy access - they really can go anywhere!
The Scripture verses are the exact same verses you'll find in the both the vertical and horizontal weekly options. With all new attributes of God in the 2018 planner, there is all new Scripture too! You will love having these Scripture memory cards!
As you see, this is no ordinary planner. Its design and focus is to help you in what could feel like mundane tasks and days. It will help plan your days, and also help focus your mind and heart toward heaven as we learn about who God is and pray for nations to come to know Him as Lord. Let's make an eternal impact in our everyday life while we wash dishes, clean the floor, read books and pick up toys....though it can feel like it, no day is ever mundane. Let's make every day No Ordinary Day!
Risks and challenges
Once the project is funded, we will print all the planners at once and get to work! We have been eager and excited to get this point! Once everything is printed and assembled, the planners will be flying out of our door and into your homes! The goal is to have everything in your hands by Christmas, and the very latest, the first of January.
If anything gets lost in the mail, as it sometimes happens, we will work with you to make it right!
While this is our second go at producing planners, we are an excellent team that works hard and works together to make solutions out of problems. We are planners and that's what we do!
