Hope Planner FAQ
Have questions about the Hope Planner products? You may find the below questions and answers helpful.
What is a Christian Planner?
A Christian planner is a faith-based planner that is specifically designed for Christian women to help you put their faith first in your busy schedules. Most Christian planners just have Bible verses printed throughout, but the Hope Planner does SO MUCH MORE than that. You could call it a devotional planner, because it gives you space everyday for your daily devotion too. Here you can write down scripture you are studying or that inspired you and journal your prayers for that day as well. Then, use the rest of the page to do everything else a regular daily planner does for you like write down tasks, goals, meal plans and your schedule.
What is the difference between the Hope Planner daily edition and the weekly edition?
The Hope Planner daily has a page-per-day layout where each page is dedicated to a single day and includes a separate “devotion” journaling section and a “do” section to record tasks and appointments. The Hope Planner weekly has a week-per-spread layout where all 7 days of the week can be viewed on a two-page spread when the planner is opened. The weekly also has a “devotion habit tracker” and prayer prompt reminders across the bottom. Both editions have the same weekly prayer journaling space and sermon notes at the beginning of each week, as well as the monthly goal setting pages and month-view calendars.
Is it dated?
No, both the daily edition and weekly edition of the Hope Planner are an undated Christian planner.
What month does the planner start on?
Whatever month you want. Again, the Hope Planner is the best prayer planner because it's undated so you can start at the beginning of the next month.
The Hope Planner is 9" tall by 8" wide, including the gold coil. The paper inside is 9" tall by 7" wide and a sturdy 74lb weight so that ink from both sides can't been seen through it.
Why is the weekly edition more expensive than the daily edition?
Because the Hope Planner daily edition is a 6 month planner and the weekly edition is a 12 month, annual planner.
But, why is the daily edition a 6-month planner?
Because our unique page layout that includes a two-page spread per week for Sundays (for extra prayer journaling and sermon notes) in addition to one page per day in the daily edition, it makes our planner much thicker than a standard 12-month planner. If we made the daily edition 12 months, it would be over 450 pages and over 5lbs! Focusing on 6-months at a time reduces bulk, overwhelm and helps you focus on two seasons at a time. Once you start using it, you quickly realize that you don't need a 12 month version.
But what if I like the Hope Planner Daily Edition, but I need a yearly planner?
Buy two! This way you'll have the 12 months with you that you're used to, but don't necessarily have to carry both with you at all times.
If you bought two Hope Planners per year, it would cost you just $6 per month to invigorate your faith and organize your life. Some people spend that per day on a cup of coffee.
How can a Christian daily planner really help me with my faith?
The daily page layout of the Hope Planner reminds you to add your prayers to your daily plans each day. You can't miss it and as long as you don't skip it... it will transform your faith. If you make a place on your calendar for the hustle, make time for the holy spirit to work in your day too. PAUSE and PRAY. No other planner gives you specific space for your daily devotion. No other planner reminds you constantly to do the the most important thing in your day for your heart and soul – pray.
What if I'm not the planner type, but I do wish I could be better about practicing daily Bible study?
Give it a shot! That's our suggestion. We've never met a single person that didn't benefit from writing things down. Whether it's your to-do list or your prayer list, writing them down takes the stress off your brain to remember them or handle those things alone. When you use our planner + prayer journal format, it helps you remember your daily quiet time because you're using it as a daily planner as well.
What is the section with the am, water droplets, workout symbol, more water droplets, and pm for?
This is our daily "healthy habit tracker"... it's a way to track how many glasses of water you're drinking each day, if you remembered to take your AM/PM vitamins or medicine and if you did your workout for the day.
Is my planner missing pages?
The Hope Planner daily edition is specifically designed to reduce the waste of unused pages that are typically found in undated planners – some months have five weeks of ”day-view” pages and some months have four weeks.
When dating your planner... From the date you start, don’t skip any individual days at the end of each month – continually use every single “day-view” page. This means one or two days from the end of one month may carry over after a new month tab, or a few days from a new month may start before you reach the next month tab.
Do you offer bulk discounts?
We offer bulk discounts to church groups and bible studies who wish to purchase 10 or more Hope Planners for their members. Use code NAMESAKE20 at checkout.
Can I sell the Hope Planner in my shop?

Can I return my Hope Planner if I don't like it?
No. Unless your planner is damaged in transit or is missing pages, all sales are final. It's our policy to only ship unopened, unused planners to our customers, because of that we cannot accept returns based on personal preference and style. We encourage you to read our customer reviews and look at all the photos we share on our website and Instagram to get a great idea of how the Hope Planner will work for you.
Please note that our planners are hand assembled so imperfections can occur. If your planner appears to be incorrect, please contact us immediately for a replacement.
