“LIFE MANAGEMENT STUDY – IT’S ABOUT TIME” – Organizational Journals

This week I will be finishing a three-week workshop-style      IAT Cover
study on life management for our church women’s ministry
called “IT’S ABOUT TIME”…“Making Each Moment
unt for Christ.”  

The Life Management Study included:
·         Fallacies of Time Management
·         Bringing Order to Your Life
·         Priority & Goal Setting
·         Balancing Life’s Demands
·         Free Organizational Notebook Kits
·         Free Planners and helpful forms and lists.

Several ladies have asked to have the handouts available for duplicating at home, so this is my attempt to do that.  Each day I will post on my blog a portion of the study with it’s accompanying forms.  I look forward to sharing this information with you and hope that it proves to be helpful to you.

This is the organizational journal (notebook) we put together in the last half of class.  This notebook is so handy, and it has become my traveling companion.  It’s sections are: Calendar, Sermon Notes, Bible Study, Devotions, Goals/Plans,  Accountability, Women’s Ministry, Addresses, and This & That.

Examples of journal covers:
