Why DAYBOOK Should be Your Catholic Planner
Two-page weekly spreadSpiritual Growth Diary spread
Custom coloring page - Four Ends of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass


Do you remember the first time you used a planner? Were you determined to see it through to the end of the year, only to give up in frustration because the planner didn’t meet your needs? What if your Catholic planner wasn’t just fully and completely Catholic, but offered you a practical solution in managing the day-to-day chaos of your life? Can you imagine how it might look? What would make it different? How would it call you to live the Faith in a deep and reverent manner? 

Well, friend, have I got some AMAZING news for you – DAYBOOK just got real. And I mean, on all fronts. It delivers where other planners won’t. It inspires you to wake up thinking about the feast day and the ones to come in the days ahead. You are grounded by the daily readings. Do you love to journal? Then, jump to the Spiritual Growth Diary and journal and scribble to your heart’s content! 

I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Martina, I’m just not organized – I just don’t know about this.” I am WITH you – so, so with you! I have spent the better part of my adult life being DISORGANIZED. And when you have a growing and large family, it’s sink or swim. You don’t have the option of not having systems in place to simplify your life. And that’s where I was, friends. I started with bad systems and I modified as I went along. And I got better at it and found a better sense of rhythm as to what would work best for myself and my family. And that’s part of my story in how I came up with DAYBOOK. I’ve done the hard work for you – I created this planner with the unorganized folks at heart. I created it because I was in your shoes and so desperately needed something that was both beautifully and completely Catholic, and didn’t compromise on the day-to-day planner details. You need something that’s simple and challenging at the same time. 

ORDER NOW – it’s the best first step you’ll take toward organizing a better tomorrow.

FINALLY! A Catholic planner that marries the traditional calendar planner design with bullet journal elements, making DAYBOOK a must have! Speaking of marrying, the Sapphires & Platinum Liturgical DAYBOOK 2019 edition was named and designed specifically to mirror color and theme elements from foundress of Catholic Sistas Martina Kreitzer and husband Neil’s September wedding on St. Padre Pio’s feast day! 

DAYBOOK truly has it all!

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.

    • Martina Kreitzer - Hi Talita!

      I reset your timeline to 30 days. You will have 30 days to download again. Thanks! 🙂August 23, 2015 – 12:04 pmReplyCancel

  • Lisa R. - I’m a part-time teacher so I printed this to use as my planbook. It was great to have the flexibility to print only the pages I needed or wanted. Instead of using a binder comb, I 3-hole-punched the pages and put them in a personalized binder. I put the cover picture in the slot on the front cover of the binder, and I put the Madonna of the Lilies on the back cover. It’s lovely! Thank you for making this available to us. I can’t wait to show it to the other school teachers tomorrow when we start our prep week. 🙂August 23, 2015 – 12:30 pmReplyCancel

      I’d love to be able to offer more options, but for now, I have to stick with my current plan or I end up being stretched too thin. I will definitely consider it if more requests come in, though. 🙂September 8, 2016 – 12:09 pmReplyCancel
