As a clergy life coach, I have journeyed with many a pastor on their path to achieving their goals – whether it be towards a healthier spiritual life, better self-care, creating realistic expectations or simply better time management – planning beyond the current week or season. My clients were carving out time with God, family, self and time for future planning which affected their health, confidence and ministry!
I wanted to reach more pastors than just my current clients, so I set out to write a series of self-coaching books for pastors. After conducting a survey of pastors as to what they would like or need in such books, I realized that so many of these issues had a planning component and so I searched for a planner that I could recommend to my clients. Finding none, I set out to create this planner and the Clergy Life Planner was born!
I created TOO many tools to possibly fit in one planner so I also created the Clergy Life Planner Companion available to download. The goal of these tools is to promote realistic expectations of time and creativity of spirit, allowing pastors to think beyond the next week’s sermon. If you don’t need the whole Companion – the tools have been divided by Planning, Lists and Tracking and you can download only that section which you need.
And those self-coaching books for pastors? Stay tuned…they are still coming!!
"I've been using the Clergy Life Planner for a number of months, and have greatly appreciated the numerous planning/organizational tools found within it. I've struggled for years to find a planner in retail and online stores that helped me keep track of the numerous projects, goals and plans related to the life of our church AND my personal life, as well. So glad to have found this amazing planner that offers me all of this and more. Highly recommend for any church worker."

"Barbara's Clergy Planner understands the schedule and the needs of pastors better than most pastors themselves! I've always been organized, but this tool helped me plan my time holistically rather than just lining up one thing after another. I've been able to combine my goals and dreams with my time management in one focused resource, and I recommend the Planner for any pastor looking to do the same."
