Choosing Your Devotional

It’s the beginning of a new year, which means its time to shop for a brand new, freshly printed, unmarked devotional. How exciting!

There are too many different devotionals on the market. How do you pick one? It depends on what you’re looking for. What are your specific needs? I’ve listed a few things  to search for when shopping for the perfect devotional.

Faith Planner 2018

We could all use a bit more structure in our lives. One of my words for this year is structure. I’m determined to live better and think better with the help of a daily planner. I’m actually surprised I haven’t used one in the past. I’ve always been such an organizer!

I recently discovered a fun, new way to keep track of daily living. Instead of writing boring tasks in a boring weekly planner, why not make it enjoyable? There are planners available today in all different brand names, colors, designs, and sizes. I’m positive you’ll be able to find one to fit your specific needs. Now, the fun part! Shop your local craft stores where you can find oodles of stickers and stamps created especially for planners.

This is the first year I’ve ever used a planner. I really don’t have a super busy life, but I do have a lot of medical needs that need to be remembered, and honestly I sometimes forget. From RX refills, to monthly lab work, to mail-ordering medical supplies, and tons of appointments to schedule and remember. At the end of the day I have no idea how I do it all.

So, which planner have I chosen? My planner is actually only available from Faithbox, a monthly subscription service. When I opened my December box, I planned on giving the planner away at first glance, but then I realized it was a sign. I was the one who really needed it! I added some personality to my planner by applying a matching gold sticker and feather tassel charm.

Faithbox Subscription Review

I’ve been very interested in receiving a monthly religious subscription box, but my main concern was, which one? There are tons of companies out there that offer this type of package. Before I began my research, I set a budget and asked myself, what do I want to receive? Did I want books, novelty items, (coffee mugs, jewelry, writing materials) or, reading material and devotionals? I set my spending limit at thirty dollars. I knew I wanted products that would challenge me and help me grow in faith. Novelties are fun, but after a while, what do you do with all of it? I already have too many knick knacks I don’t need.

What is Faithbox?

I discovered Faithbox while browsing Hello Subscription’s list of religious and spiritual subscription services.

This package includes, a daily devotional booklet, to maintain strong faith throughout the month and photo prints with corresponding scripture.
