Organization for the Christian Mom with Diadem Planners

It's no secret that moms are BUSY! Generally speaking, we take care of it all- from kids appointments, extracurriculars, paying bills, grocery shopping, all falls on us! I don't know about all of you...but for me it can get a little overwhelming! I needed something that would help me keep it all a little organized! So, when I was contacted by Diadem Planners asking if I would review their new planner designed for the busy Christian woman, I knew it would be a great solution.

Let's take a look inside:

This planner takes just about everything a mom needs to stay organized and combines it into one adorable little planner. There is a monthly calender, weekly schedules, menus, shopping lists/budget, cleaning schedule and a to do list. Everything you would expect in a great 'mom' planner, right? Everything is neatly organized with plenty of room to write your plans/notes/etc. And because it's the type of calender where YOU fill in the date, you can start using at anytime throughout the year without wasted pages! If it stopped there, it would already be a pretty amazing planner...but that's not my favorite part!

What really sets this planner apart is the journal aspect of it. Along with all the planner sections listed above, it also features journaling pages designed to help remind us in our busy schedules to take time out to build our relationship with God. Though we KNOW that this is necessary, so often we just can't seem to remember to make the time for it...with this planner, we can see everything we have to get done that week INCLUDING giving Him praise and reflecting on Him. This is truly an amazing idea, and one that I think every Christian woman could greatly appreciate.

Aside from loving the planners themselves, I was also touched by the women BEHIND the planners- Kathryn and Jodie. They created these planners after realizing that there was just nothing that really fit their personal planning needs:

Our heart is to encourage women as they seek to manage their time (instead of time owning them) so that they can invest in what matters most (the Lord, their families). And, we wanted the foundation of our planners to be based on our identity in Christ since, keeping that as the foundation of our hearts, is what is life directing and soul strengthening.

Both women are Christian wives and mothers. Kathryn has a toddler and an infant and Jodie has a preschooler, toddler and infant- the youngest of whom was born with 
Mosaic Trisomy 22. Being a special needs mother myself, I know both the challenges and the rewards that raising a special child requires. If you would like to learn more about these women, visit the links below:

Are you a mom who could benefit from these great planners? Or do you know a mom who could? How do YOU fit Christ into your busy lifestyle?


  1. These are not only adorable and useful, but I also love the verses & journal pages -- this business sounds amazing and I love their hearts for God and honoring Him with our time! Thanks for the review!

    This is really cool. It would be so great if our church gave these out to new moms in the congregation!

  3. I love the identity in Christ section! That's awesome!

  4. This looks helpful, now if only I could get around to filling it out!

  5. I love that it has a budgeting section. I love planners, though I sometimes forget to use them.
