Do your holidays seem to always become stressful and full of “wait to the last minute” to do items? If so, then this course is for you! My desire in putting together this course is to provide a tangible way for you to plan out your holidays so they are enjoyable, less stressful, and more filled with the things that really matter. I know that there have been many times that I get in the midst of all the holiday preparations, shopping, gift making, etc., and I lose my focus. I become overwhelmed and forget what Thanksgiving and Christmas are all about. Many of you have enjoyed Marilyn Moll’s (www.MarilynMoll.com) holiday timetable over the years, helping you plan out your holidays. Well, when I saw Marilyn’s timetable I thought it would be great to make some forms for myself to use along with it…creating my own holiday planner. As I began the task of creating all these forms, the Lord prompted me that there may be others who would be blessed by these forms too. So I contacted Marilyn about compiling the timetable and all the forms into a format that I could offer on my website. Marilyn graciously consented and has embarked on this journey with me to provide a very usable and helpful resource for you to use in your own home. ---> You can see a free preview of sample pages below under Week 1! <--- The 12-Week Holiday Planner will… begin the first week of October – no more last minute scrambling! give you detailed To Do Lists each week – yes, we tell you exactly what to do each week so you are ready for the holidays! give you lots of forms to fill out and put in your very own Holiday Planner notebook (all forms are editable) make your life less stressful so that you can enjoy this special time of year with your family give you some of our favorite holiday recipes to try encourage you to be intentional while planning to make your holidays special What you will find in this course: Blank monthly and weekly calendar pages for planning your year Weekly “To Do” lists showing exactly what needs to be done each week Thanksgiving and Christmas Menus forms Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Recipe Card forms A Holiday Self-Evaluation form Shopping Lists “Sheri’s Tips”- tips to make your holidays meaningful, shared throughout the course Christmas Craft and Gift Ideas Memory Making Ideas for the Family Holiday Journal Pages Many, many forms such as: Christmas Gift Shopping List Gift Making Checklist Christmas Card Checklist Holiday Wardrobe Planner List of Baked Items to Share/Give Away Favorite Meals to Freeze for Later Decoration Ideas Needed Supplies to Purchase This Week Holiday Baking Schedule Kids’ Gift Idea List Christmas Gifts to be Shipped PLUS!!!
