An Amazing Planner
Amy Brown, Alive & Well and Thrive Today
Superb Planner, changed my daily life I use this planner everyday and it's transformed my work, personal and spiritual life! It's helped me create consistent habits and has brought focus back to my day (I actively pursue my long term goals rather than wasting the day!). In addition, It's integration of brain skills and Christian mindfulness takes personal development way beyond your ordinary planner.
The Purposeful Planner
I developed this planner because I couldn’t find anything that would help me grow in my walk with God, grow relationally and emotionally, and also keep me on track with my busy life. Developing a planner resulted from a desire to create something that worked for me and the people I care for. Planners kept me organized but missed the heart; journals helped but didn’t keep me on track. What could I do? I made my own. This planner is a practical companion to
• Develop a purposeful life
• Grow in your walk with God.
• Cultivate emotional health and relational brain skills
• Achieve more while doing less.
Most Christians want to follow Jesus, be successful at work, and have happy relationships. However, many of us aren’t able to put these all together. This is what the Joyskills Purposeful Planner will help you do. Think of it as your helper towards the life you have always wanted.
We have three downloadable resources.
Recovering Together outlines the three things your people need to recover emotionally from COVID-19.
My Pandemic Experience is a worksheet we give to people to work through when they come into our building to pray and talk.
