I love the start of a new year. It’s a time of hope and possibilities. I know that technology has taken over for many, but for me, I still prefer an actual book to write plans in, so I was excited by the opportunity to review the Horacio Dream Planner.
As I opened the box, the first thing I saw was the cloth drawstring bag with the words “The best is yet to come.” I’ve got to admit, that jumped out at me as that’s not exactly the common sentiment right now. But I appreciate the optimism. It expresses the theme of the planner. We may not be able to control what happens in the year to come, but we can control our reaction to it.
The front matter of the book is basically guidelines to help you evaluate where you’re at and where you’d like to be. You’re asked to rate yourself spiritually, physically, financially, professionally, and personally. Although I’m not a fill in the blanks, charting my life kind of person, if you are, I’m sure you’ll find it helpful. The creators have included QR codes to take you to helpful videos to guide you in your activities, so in a way, in combines old school and new school school.
The planner section itself includes seasonal prayers, monthly calendars, weekly checklists, and daily boxes to fill in with the day’s activities. There’s plenty of room for writing all that you might have planned. At the end of each month is a notes section and a praise report page.
Here’s a video that walks you through all the many features of the planner. I had no idea all that it did until I watched the video.
I find the Horacio website to be super helpful. It’s not just about shopping for planners. It’s also Bible study resources, a podcast, a blog and so much more. Their intent is to help build community so that you’re not planning alone. They even have a big Dreamers Summit in December with big name speakers and an interactive format so you can be inspired together with other Christian women.
