The 12-Week Holiday Planner by Sheri Graham

The 12-Week Holiday Planner


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 ( 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.

A happy customer:

All I can say is WOW! It is fantastic! Everything that you need to plan the holidays is there in a clear, concise and organized way. I think you could even fill in some sections earlier in the year like the gift giving if you intend to make homemade gifts, e.g. sewing and such. All the forms are fantastic and user friendly. And the best thing is that you have a record year by year of what worked well and how you can improve on the year before! A wonderful resource and must have for any family!  ~ Joy McDonald-Homeschool Mom
