ABOUT SACRED ORDINARY DAYS

We are a company that started with a signature daily planner centered on the church year and lectionary. We interact with a lively community of 5,000 followers on Instagram that appreciate following our account for beautiful images, thoughtful captions, prayer prompts, learning about the church year and spiritual practices, and even building relationships with other followers and users of our #sacredordinarydays hashtag. Our community includes clergy, seminary students and faculty, stay-at-home parents, and other laypeople with a variety of vocational expressions. Some of our followers grew up within the rhythms of the church year indenominations that made use of the lectionary. For others in our community, these tools and rhythms are wholly new.

Sacred Ordinary Days values diversity of talent, experience, and contribution among its team members. Our company is powered by a small, dedicated team of individuals who live in various places in the United States and are committed to the craft of their work and the heartbeat of our brand and community.

Though we are primarily known as a planner company, we see ourselves growing into a thought leader in contemporary spiritual formation, offering not only tools, but also gatherings, one-one spiritual direction, group spiritual direction, books, and year-long spiritual formation programs, all using modern approaches rooted in ancient practices.
