For day 2 in my “College Bound” series, I want to share with you the newest agenda planner from Dayspring! For the first two years that I was in college, I went to a local community college to get my associates before transferring to a larger university. The front office would give out free spiral-bound planners to students every semester that would have events specific to the college as well as a monthly and weekly views to plan out classes and assignments. It had round stickers in the back with things like “finals” “due” and “project.” These planners were extremely helpful in helping me keep track of my work schedule, classes, assignments, projects, and finals. So it’s no surprise that I would highly recommend an agenda planner for those headed off to college!

Even though I’m not in college anymore, I still find a planner useful for jotting down important dates and appointments, as well as using it for weekly scripture writing. Dayspring just released 5 new 18-month agenda planners. These planners start in July 2018 and go through December 2019. Because they start in the summer, it’s the perfect set up for a new college student starting in the Fall 2018. Each one is spiral bound with a gold spiral and has laminated front and back covers. Dayspring sent me the Illustrated Faith branded planner to review and share with my followers, but there are numerous covers and styles to choose from. Each planner is practical and functional, as well as beautifully designed and faith inspiring.
All the planners from Dayspring have the same basic layout. There is a monthly dashboard and a laminated tab attached for that specific month. Then the first 2-page spread is the monthly calendar view. Next, the month is broken down into weeks, with one week spanning a 2-page spread. There are lines for writing more in-depth notes to plan out more specific details. This is also the area where those who use it as a faith planner would write out scripture or other faith-related content.
At the back of the planner is a Notes section. There are a few lined pages, a few graph pages, and a few blank pages in this section. There are three pages of planner stickers that fit perfectly into the monthly calendars and are a great way to add colorful reminders for important events. Lastly there is a pocket in the back to store extra bits and pieces.
The Illustrated Faith branded planner is absolutely beautifully designed. The cover is my favorite color, purple! It has a geometric design and hand-brushed lettering that spells out “Just give me Jesus.” Some of the design is gold-leafed to make it shimmer. For each monthly dashboard, a unique verse and design determines the color and theme for that month. At the top of each page is a coordinating banner that matches for that month. Even if you don’t add any other illustrating to this planner, it is still faith inspiring. But I like that there is lots of room to add decorations and embellishments.
