Don’t miss out! Purchase your copy of The 2010 Schoolhouse Planner.

Title: The 2010 Schoolhouse Planner: Making a Plan for School and Home
Publisher: The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
Number of Pages: 614

Format: E-Book
The vast majority of people struggle with the inability to organize all the things in their lives. With so many priorities and things to remember - the challenges continue to grow, as does the stress. If you’re a homeschooling mom, dad, or grandparent, then I feel you endure a greater degree of stress.

Sadly there aren’t too many options available to assist us in our organizing dilemmas. While some people have the incredible gift of creating their own “all in one planner,” most of us have to search multiple places in the hunt for what we need and want, only to end up with smorgasbord of stuff that only adds to our original predicament. I’ve experienced this first hand. We began homeschooling in 2007, and by 2008 I knew a good quality planner was essential for my home and classroom. However, I decided I would create what I needed with a compilation of what I could find online and in the book stores. Well, no matter how hard I tried I could not create, nor find, quite what I need or wanted. Well, thanks to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine (TOS), my organization/planning crisis has been solved.

TOS has done the leg work for us, creating what I call the ultimate “all in one planner.” This planner has virtually everything you need to organize your home, life and school. And guess what?! Not only is it 614 pages long, (yup, you read it right, 614 pages), but it’s ONLY $39.00! You can’t beat that price!

Since the planner is 614 pages, some printing options for you could be -
  • Print out all 614 pages, allowing you to physically touch and flip through planner - deciding as go, what you wish to use and when.
  • Print out only the pages you wish to use each month.
  • Print out only the pages you wish to use each month for each student.
A great way to store the planner (printed pages) is in a three-ring binder. This helps to keep everything neat, in order, and in one location. Once you purchase the planner, it is yours to what you wish. So, do whatever is most convenient and useful for you.

Trash Day

Today is a new day. Today is the day I surrender. Today is trash day.
It’s time to refocus my life on what’s truly important - God, my family, and myself.

Father God,

It’s time to clean out all the room in this house. I’m throwing out all the hurt, pain, resentment, un-forgiveness, anger, stress, fear, anxiety… I give it all to you. I know you are all I need to fill the rooms in my life, so Father God it’s all yours, 100%. Please don’t ever allow me to take any of it back.  From this day forward no more trash will be allowed to take up residence in this house. I will move forward today with a renewed strength, happy heart, peaceful mind… Through your word and the lessons you have taught me, I know I can do this with you by my side.

In your precious name I pray, Amen
