It seems like it was only a few days ago, we were welcoming in a new year and a new decade. But here we are already just a couple of weeks away from March. And although we are almost two full months into 2020, it’s not too late to start a new planner if you’ve yet to find planner peace.
Please tell me I’m not the only woman who has struggled to find the right planner fit? As I mentioned in our 2019 planner picks, I’m guilty of buying planners only to have relegated them to the shelf before the year’s end.
Perhaps you, too, are searching for your planner match. Maybe you’ve considered trying a new format.
Meet The Hope Planner
Recently we were given the opportunity to try out the Hope Planner. Designed by Heather Vreeland, the Hope Planner is an all-in-one Christian planner. Its combination of weekly planner and prayer journal makes it quite unique.
I love cracking open the pages of a new planner. The Hope Planner comes packaged nicely. And I love the line inside the box, which says, “Now you can be as prayerful as you are productive.”
You see, from the time you first open the box, one gets the impression that productivity is not the ultimate goal. In fact, Vreeland states the planner has two primary purposes:
- To help you organize your life
- To invigorate your faith
Why You’ll Like It
As a woman of faith, you’ll love all of the many ways it incorporates space to focus on your spirituality. Inside, you’ll find prayer list section on each month’s spread, a section for devotions and weekly sermon notes, weekly habit trackers for Bible study, quiet time, and memory verse practice.
In addition to focusing on your faith, you’ll find plenty of space to track your weekly to do’s, water intake, exercise, and meds/vitamins.

One of the things I really like about The Hope Planner is that it’s undated. This means you can start using the planner whenever you want and you reduce the feeling of guilt, if you happen to skip a month using your planner. However, for some, it may be a drawback. Another plus for me was the size of the planner (9×8 inches) makes it suitable for carrying in my work bag without adding too much additional weight. The paper quality is excellent as well. I used my favorite pens without any bleed through or shadowing.
For the individual who is looking for a way to streamline her planning and be more intentional about incorporating daily spiritual disciplines, The Hope Planner is a good option. You can choose between the daily or weekly planner format. One thing to note is that the daily edition is only a six-month planner, whereas, the weekly is for a full 12 months.
