A Glimpse Into My Planner – What Happened in June

I got a new planner this year and so I started a series that I’m titling “A Glimpse Into My Planner”.

  • Wellness – Daily workouts.
  • Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.

I also make note of things the Lord shows me during my daily quiet time.

May recap

Just to recap:
Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:

This new planner has reduced my desk by 3 books, and I have it all in one place and I love it.  I also love going back through my month to see what worked, what didn’t, what I got done, what I still need to do and so on.

Let’s take a look back at May…
