EP 27: Planning Our Days as Homemakers


Planning has been a help to me in caring well for my home and family. #planning #planner #planourdays @mferrell

I have always been a planner oriented person. I love notebooks and pens and making lists. I love seeing items I have to-do written down. It helps me to keep order and meet the needs of my family and others while still getting time to do some of the things I love to do too (like write on this blog here).

Planning My Day as a Homemaker

I’d like to walk through with you today how I use my planner to plan my days. It isn’t meant to be copied but to spark ideas on ways you can plan your days working with the way God has wired you.

The days and weeks I take the time to plan well are the ones that are my most productive and efficient. I hope you’ll be encouraged today to grab a few nuggets that may work for you and your life.
