2018 Primary Presidency Planners

Thank you all so much for the feedback on these over the years. And thank you so much to my testers for these new 2018 planners. They have been completely revamped! Pages added and pages adjusted to make this a beautifully streamlined planner for your presidencies!

I have three options this year (because who doesn't LOVE options!). Instead of the splash of color as in years past, I went with color scheme instead. All of the inner pages are the same for each planner, just choose the style that you love, purchase, print and bind (you can get these spiral bound for under $5 at your local print shop, I used Staples)

The best part about these planners is they are customizable! Print whatever pages will work for you in your planner and leave the rest.

These are also editable with the most recent Adobe Reader. (Seriously just learned this in my English class to comment on essays and it is THE most amazing tool!)

TO EDIT: Open the pdf file you want to add text to. (No text boxes will appear, this is just to type like you would on a blank document) On the right side you will see "COMMENT", click on this. Along the top just above the purple, you'll see a "gray section" with different things that you can do with this function. To add the text, click on the 5th "T" (just to the left of the "t" in the box). A cursor with a little a will appear, place where you want to add text. You can change the font and size inside the purple bar along the top.

Each Color Scheme Planner contains inside:
- Cover
-Year at a glance
- Monthly "divider" page (NEW)
- One sheet Monthly Calendar
- Presidency Meeting Notes page (NEW)
- Month-at-a glance (NEW- and the favorite addition amongst our testers!)
- Callings Sheet/ Monthly Events (birthdays, advancements, baptisms)
- Notes
- Plan Ahead 2018
- Remember for 2019
- Primary Contact Sheet
- Weekly Planning Sheet (NEW)

Optional to buy separately to create tabs, "sticky notes", etc (or just because you love the colors!) are the digital papers that I created for each month's background. (coming soon!)

 Fun and youthful planner with a few pinks, a light blue, green and a dark purple for some contrast.

Strawberry Punch Papers
(coming soon!)

Serenity awaits in nature. Snag this planner for more earthy tones.
Red, tan, brown-gray, blues and a green make up the colors on this GORGEOUS planner!

Rustic Joy Papers
(coming soon!)

Keep it simple and keep those colored pencils handy for this COLORABLE planner featuring black and white throughout including the cover!

September Sharing Time Week 3

I've put together a fun simple game to get kids talking about ways to honor parents. Create a puzzle with the house or bring out those sticky hands that kids just can't get enough of and stick them around the house as you learn.

September Sharing Time Week 2

For me, this week is about how we can show respect and worship God. This is done through reverence and I read THIS about reverence and I just love that we show reverence in basically everything that we do. We really have many opportunities in our day to show respect towards our Heavenly Father.

What do these commandments tell us?

1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me -- this means that we to only worship Heavenly Father

2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image -- this means that we must love Heavenly Father more than anything else that we have, like toys or video games

3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain -- this means that Heavenly Father is a special person to us and we show respect to Him by only using His name when we are at church, at the temple, asking a question, or saying prayers.  (Be sensitive with this one, family members may not follow this and the children might hear it often.)

4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy -- this means that Sundays are the Lord's day, we go to church, spend time with our families and do activities that we wouldn't do on the other days. (This is also a sensitive one, as it is a personal decision for each family. For example, some families may feel it's okay to play outside with family and others may not)

I was hoping to have more for you, but this week escaped me. I hope you can still use this fun cut/paste activity. To supplement this, check out Little LDS Ideas post for this week, it looks fun and easy to put together!

September Sharing Time Week 1

Summer is over and kiddos are back in school so I am hoping that even with our little newborn and me going to school that I'll be able to get back into the swing of things!

For this week's activity, I thought about this talk from a couple years ago by Elder Keetch. He gave an analogy about the need for commandments and sharks out past the bay that he couldn't see at first until he was given a pair of binoculars and finally saw them. (Recommend this talk, it's amazing and I love it!)

This game was SO much fun to create and play! This game is like Minesweeper, Connect 4, and with a little bit of trivia mixed in. Let's just say, be ready to laminate and add it to your Sunday Box!
* The circles to cut out are 2.5 inches, if you'd like to pull out your circle punch.

Reveal a number, gives a clue for how many sharks! Reveal a Q and get a question about commandments. Add a challenge and try to get a 4 in a row!
