My New Year Essentials!

in , by Cynthia Cano, 2:27 PM
Hey sister friend!!! How are you? How's life? 
Ugh, I'm so sorry for being MIA from the blog recently. I keep saying that and going MIA but LIFE! I'm 7 months pregnant with our baby boy, Jeremiah, and it's been hectic trying to adjust to mommy life with two kids and being preggers at the same time. It's tough but rewarding for sure.

Can you believe 2020 is a week away?
 I've been working on prepping for it so that I can start off the new year right. If you are part of my private facebook group, then you've probably already noticed some of the changes: ROUTINE!
Yes, routine is one of the ways that I'm prepping. Routine spiritually speaking, and routine when it comes to my home management. So how I am doing that?

With my essentials of course!!!

Awaken: 90 Day Devotional

So we are starting our New Year with a DEVOTIONAL (*sings the word*)!!! Have you ever heard of Priscilla Shirer? She comes out in the War Room movies and a few other Christian movies, but she is also an amazing speaker for the Lord and I absolutely love her. I first heard of this book from @lovemichelleana and I was immediately attracted it so I decided to buy for 2020 and start off my year that way. We will be discussing the book in our facebook group, even though it is a devotional and it will be more personal, but it is the first book I chose for our first book club of next year. So if you are looking for a book to read, definitely check this one out and if you decide to buy, join us in our online book club to discuss what God is teaching us along the way.

Erin Condren Life Planner

I've always been a Happy Planner girl. But for the New Year and the new decade, I wanted something that looked cleaner and more put together and so I order my first ever Erin Condren life planner. I'm not gonna lie, it was a bit pricey, but, I really don't need to spend all the extra money that I did buying extensions for my Happy Planner. Everything I need is pretty much included in planner and I am so happy about that (and so is my husband, lol).


Journaling has been my thing since, like, always *shrugs*. It really has, even when I stop and come back to it months later lol. For the most part, I fill up a journal in about 6-8 months but with my last journal, it took me two years to fill it up and it still has a bunch of empty pages left. YIKES! But it was time for me to find myself a new journal for the new decade. I found this planner on Amazon and it has Jeremiah 29:11 written in the front
"I know the plans I have for you", Declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I chose this specific journal for two reasons.
1. The verse in front is my son's name
2. It's one of my all time favorite verses!


What have you done to get yourself ready for 2020? Have you gotten your new planner, journal, book? Have you figured out what your Word of the Year or Verse of the Year is yet? You still have time to get everything together, sis. No rush! I'm just asking. I've gotten these three items throughout the month of December, but I have yet to figure out what my Word for 2020 is. I'm praying and praying hard for God to show me what he wants me to focus on next year. So hopefully I will have a blogpost on that soon!
