FREE Weekly Household Planner

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

Keep Your House Clean

With seven children, I absolutely must have some kind of cleaning schedule/planner to help me stay on track. It’s not always the obvious things I miss — it’s the deeper cleaning items that can slip my mind if I don’t take a moment to glance at my household planner for a reminder (or when it becomes visually obviously, which I prefer not to wait for).

The Confident Mom has released the 2015 Weekly Household Planner and it is FREE!  The best, most detailed household planner I have ever come across. Did I mention it’s free?!

This planner is in PDF format and there is one sheet for every week of the year. It comes pre-filled in and also blank so you can fill (type or write) in your own tasks specific to your needs.

What a great way to start off 2015!

You can download yours here.

You can also build onto this planner by adding on the supplement kit.



This is one of the most useful (and pretty) freebies I utilize and I am COMPELLED to share it with you! Snag yours HERE.

Roadmap to Your Best Year Ever

OK, I gotta make this really quick…

Michael Hyatt just released his all-new 5 Days To Your Best Year Ever Coaching Program.

Last year alone over 3,000+ people went through the program – and there are some amazing stories of people experiencing incredible transformations in their life.

You can experience the same: Best Year Ever Roadmap

But there is a catch…

It’s only open for the a very short period of time.  After that, he closes it down to focus on supporting the new class of people going through the program.

If you know deep down that you’re capable of more but have felt stuck not knowing how to experience the kind of breakthrough you deserve, then go check this out.


P.S. There is even an extra bonus just on opening day!

P.P.S. The registration for this course is only open for a short period of time so don’t miss out, click the link below:

Characteristics of Those Who Succeed

Can we be honest for a second?

It’s not easy making progress against our big goals is it?

Today more than ever there are a million things competing for our attention and I don’t know about you, but life often feels chaotic.

Whether it’s work conflicting with family time or missed appointments and deadlines and feeling like you never have control over your schedule – life can feel disheartening at times can’t it?

It’s like no matter what you do, you always feel like you struggle to find time and the important things are falling through the cracks.


It might be easier than you think to turn things around.

Especially after you watch this video from Michael Hyatt outlining the 5 characteristics of those who get what they want.

It’s arguably some of the best free content online today.




P.S. This video comes with a free PDF download that will take this content to a whole new level for you.

4 Secrets for Creating a Spectacular Year

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

Make Things Happen

Ask yourself this…

If so many people have good intentions around this time of year to truly create change in their life, then why do so many fail months, weeks (even days) after setting their New Year’s Resolutions?

It happens every single year.

When it happens to so many people, it kind of makes you think that it’s more the goal-setting “process” that’s broken – right?

The problem is, very few of us were ever taught a process for truly getting what we want in life.

NYT bestselling author Michael Hyatt wants to change that – starting with this free video called “4 Secrets To A Breakthrough Year“.

How about a fresh perspective on goal setting?  One that will help you move on from past failure. One that will help you look ahead with clarity and confidence.

I don’t know about you but I want 2015 to be different. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. Time to change things up and shift your perspective.

Michael shares the four secrets you need to create a solid foundation for success with your goals. Without these, you’ll find it virtually impossible to get what you want this year.

However, with them, you’ll be setup to have your best year ever.



P.S.  If you’ve ever felt like there was something standing between you and the things you want most in life, go watch this video (plus it’s free for a limited period of time!):

Simple Advent Devotional for Your Children

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

 Truth in the Tinsel - Advent Devotional


Available right now is the popular Advent devotional, Truth in the Tinsel, written by my sweet friend Amanda. This is such a simple, well written devotional, with simple craft ideas to make it meaningful and memorable, for you and your children, each day of Advent.

It’s not too late!

And, if you’re a bit too busy during this season to make your own Advent ornaments, Amanda offers them all pre-made for you! Sometimes, you just can’t put a price on keeping things simple.

Truth in the Tinsel ornaments

Sometimes, for me, it’s a decision whether not doing it at all, or taking the simple road and doing it. Some seasons just require more simplicity and that’s OK.


Grapevine Bible Studies for Kids

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

Grapevine Studies
I am so excited to share this Bible Study resource with you for your children. I am in the process of going through and preparing a review on The Birth of Jesus for you so you can see how it works, but I can already tell you that it is a very creative and solid way to teach your children the Bible. I love how it can be as creative as your child wants it to be.

Creating the figures and symbols helps to solidify important concepts into your children’s minds. Do you have a child who likes to “doodle” while they listen to a read aloud? It’s kind of like that. It actually helps them remember it better. I look forward to sharing more with you soon! For now, I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity for you to grab a study while they are on the lowest price of the year.

Planning for the Upcoming Year (and a Giveaway!)

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

We’re at that time of year when I start thinking about the following year and what I hope to accomplish. I am huge on planning — sometimes to a fault. In fact, my husband is more on the spontaneous side and when he mentions doing something that isn’t on my radar, I go into convulsions.

If it is not something that was discussed prior to that moment, I have to make myself readjust. I can be spontaneous when I’m away from home and I’m not in charge of things.

But when it comes to my home and our family’s schedule, I like to know what we’re doing ahead of time.

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own and I only share things I truly believe in and which may be beneficial to you. :)

That’s why I love the Daily Planner by Sue of
