DIY Happy Planner Bible Study Guide

I’m excited to share another faith planner post. This time, it’s a DIY bible study guide. I’ve been sharing quite a bit of my wellness planner throughout the year thus far, but it’s really just a faith planner. Well, that’s all that is in it at the moment. I’ve finished reading What On Earth Am I Here For: The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and I have much more to share on the book. Stay tuned for more content surrounding the text.

Materials Used

In creating this bible study guide, I went with the page protectors that go along with the mini faith Happy Planner I’m using. These pages are pretty much like baseball card holders with different sizes to fill with what you want. Many people use these pages for memory keeping, I decided to use it. The package comes with 12 for just $4.99 which I think is a great price point for all you receive.

In addition to the page protectors, I used scrapbook paper. I had some on hand that was faith themed paper pad I scored on clearance from Hobby Lobby.

Bible Study Guide

I went through what I had read and there were many sections that stood out to me. This book in particular was broken into 42 days and that is how I studied the book. Certain passages stood out to me more than others. For the sections that stood out to me I simply put the topic on the front and on the back, the notes from the page. This way when I flip back and forth between the two I’ll be able to memorize the brief information.

In choosing the placement, I wasn’t too picky with it. I just went with what I knew would fit on the slots within the page protector. The book was broken into 5 purposes (categories) and this study guide was from one of the purposes. As I create a few more in correlation with this text, I could create one for each of the purposes that summarizes it. The other option is to choose days that stood out to me (as I did above) and continue to study that way.

Additional Options

This is also great to do with sermon notes and scripture memorization. With sermon notes you can break it down by the scriptures, topic of sermon, song related to topic, and personal reflection.

Scripture memorization goes beyond just the standard of writing the scripture on the front and the verse on the back. You can break the scripture down into your own words and study that way. Of course, if you’re looking for a verbatim option, the latter will suffice.

Don’t Wait Until Tomorrow 

In late October of last year, a friend of my grandmothers passed away. Lately, it seems as though a lot of her friends/acquaintances are passing yet she remains standing. At 85 she has persevered through health challenges of her own and lives to tell about it. Yet recently, she’s been in a fog thinking about how blessed she is to be alive and now closer she is to the grave. Her words, not mine. Now here we are not even a full month into 2018 and the husband of that woman, my grandfather’s best friend has passed away as well. Continue reading “Don’t Wait Until Tomorrow “

Motivational Monday | Whatever Keeps the Anxiety Away!

Life has been absolutely amazing. I can’t complain. Everything finally seems to be falling into place. I’ve shared my journey to finding a career throughout various blog posts. It can be difficult. It’s never been easy. The one thing that’s kept me going is my determination, support from my family, and most importantly my faith in God. Despite the peak of my life right now and how fulfilled I am, one thing that won’t stay away is my anxiety. I’ve had to think outside the box and find ways to keep it away and keep moving forward.

Keep Yourself From Burning Out

Life gets busy. It can surely get overwhelming. You may find yourself being pulled this way and that way. You may have a mile long to do list yet you don’t know where to start. Sometimes, that’s just how life is. You’re so busy that you find yourself working around the clock to get things done. With all that hard work, it still feels like you’re behind. You’re still playing catch up. It’s never ending. Say hello to burning yourself out.

Motivational Monday | Change Is Good!

These past few weeks , no this past year has been filled with major changes and adjustments.  I left one job that for another and now I’m on to another one. From leaving one job to starting a new one. I have had to make changes in a shorter amount of time than I usually would, but it’s necessary. I have always preferred comfort over change. I won’t say that I despise change, but if I could keep things my way, why not?

Life After College | 4 Years Later

May 23, 2013 I graduated from undergrad with a B.A. in English Communications – Broadcast Journalism. As for what my degree entailed, I studied English literature and radio/TV production for four years. I started in 2009 and finished in 2013 which was an accomplishment in itself as not many people in the program finished in 4 years. I didn’t take summer classes and my semesters were jam packed, but I finished. After graduation, it was just that, a graduation. No career like some of my other friends. No full-time job with benefits. I was still working at a daycare making minimum wage. In fact, I had just had surgery two weeks prior and hadn’t worked the entire month of May plus I wrapped up an internship with Billboard. Receiving my degree made all the twists and turns of my last academic year worth it. Here I am 4 years later where I can happily reflect on that time in my life as I make a stride in my career.  Continue reading “Life After College | 4 Years Later”
