The Sacred Ordinary Days Planner is designed to help you cultivate a whole life—one of prayer, work, rest, joy, and connection.

When you're looking at your life as a whole and not in pieces, y
ou'll be able to identify what's working well and what small tweaks you might make as you go to make things more effective, sustainable, or joyful. You'll begin with naming and noticing what is and then reflecting, integrating, and resetting. Over the course of a whole year, you'll be surprised at the way you'll come to cultivate sustainable and sustaining rhythms, based on the liturgical year, practices of prayer, and approaching scripture afresh. 

Though we can't come alongside each of you as your Spiritual Director, we hope this planner (and the community of people using it all over the world) will offer you companionship and guidance on the journey. Let us be an entry point or anchor to approaching this new-old way of being with humility, curiosity, and creativity.
 

A PLANNER TO HELP YOU CULTIVATE A WHOLE LIFE

The Sacred Ordinary Days Planner is the culmination of years of learning, listening, teaching, and walking alongside people—just like you—who were hungry for peace, presence, and purpose. Drawing from Jenn’s experience as a Minister and Spiritual Director, our planner is designed to help you prayerfully discern and faithfully do the work you are uniquely called to and created for. Anchor yourself as you offer your work as your prayer and your prayer as your work, while also making time and space for connection, rest, and play. Our hope is that our planner will help you do your work effectively, joyfully, and sustainably—no matter what your work is.

    Integral to my life

    I adore this planner. I've used it every year since the first kickstarter, minus a few months when I tried to go without and just couldn't. It is integral to my life, and I know things are out-of-whack when a few blank pages go by, or I miss a weekly examen. I use the daily page for my examen practice, mapping moments of consolation and desolation. I also track questions and requests and prayers. What do I need? What am I grateful for? I also bring it with me into my spiritual direction, and it's so helpful in reviewing the month. The daily office readings are an added bonus, so I don't have to toggle back and forth with another resource. Just the planner and my Bible and a meditation cushion for centering prayer. It's been a constant companion in my spiritual life.

    Wonderful resource

    This planner was a wonderful opportunity to take time to mediate on Scripture and think through my whole person experience of the day. I loved everything; the only thing I would wish for would be for something more specific in the "priorities" section every day. Something that matches the examen - what are my bodily priorities, my emotional priorities,my work priorities, etc.?

    My Planner Journey

    I'm love planners, but I don't use them well. Like the person that buys exercise equipment to get fit, then isn't committed to using it! The SOD planner has given my many opportunities to grow spiritually in addition to finding and creating order in my week. I'm still learning. There are so many things my planner does, and number one: it is teaching and leading me the practice of being in the real presence of God more. Thank you SOD!

    It's the best

    My daily planner keeps my spiritual life and my "other" life organized. The wonderful thing is that the more I use it, the more my "other" life becomes embedded in my spiritual life. As I get to the end of the year, my planner grows fat with quotes, poems, pictures and music that I paste in. I sketch, paint and do whatever the Spirit leads me to do in the blank spaces. I haven't developed the introspection practice on Sundays with much success, but I'll get there! The only changes I would enjoy would be having a larger blank space on each page and have some of the spaces vertical instead of horizontal. Also would like a few more blank pages, since I paste in my passwords, health issues, family phone numbers and addresses, garden plans and more! I think this is my fourth year and I'm looking forward to year #5.

    Peace in the daily hum

    I am so so thankful for SOD! I have been using the daily planner for a few years now. In using SOD it has helped to breath the peace, strength of scripture in to the activities, triumphs & hardships of my husband, kids and me. This humble guide has brought awareness of the expectant hope that is all around on a daily basis. Anyone who walking their inner journey with the Lord needs to get this tool to help guide their way!

    Great planner!

    I’ve been using SOD planners for several years. This past year I really determined to follow the Bible reading plan and it’s been life changing. I’m so thankful for SOD!

    Beautiful and accessible

    I always enjoy getting this planner and this year is no less exciting. Open Meadow is a great cover.

    Excellent daily tool for reflection

    The SOD daily planner has been a steady companion through an unsteady year, and has provided daily prompts to return to tried and true practices that support spiritual growth. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to create or reinforce habits on a daily/weekly/seasonal rhythm. There's also white space that's helpful for a bit of journaling and reflection.

    Keeps Me Focused

    I love my Daily Planner! I've gone thru so many planners trying to find what Sacred Ordinary Days provides. As someone who is prone to get off track (and somewhat unmotivated to get things done), this planner helps me to stay focused. Anyone can make a to-do list. But the key to staying focused for me is knowing there's a reward or rest at the end of it. Genius! This is why the best feature of the planner is the Priorities-Cue-Rest/Delight section. I also absolutely love that they've built in a weekly examen to help reflect and reset. So vital to remain grounded!

    Beautiful Planner

    This planner was so helpful in reorienting my thinking and rhythms, and I loved the inclusion of the Daily Office, Church calendar items, and space for priorities and cues. An amazing resource in viewing life holistically, instead of as a list of to-do items.
