I hope you grabbed your favorite notebook and pen because that’s what this site is all about! Taking notes and making plans. JUST KIDDING! It’s about life and I am hoping I can make yours a little less hectic. 

Do you ever feel like you’re being pulled in 17 different directions, and you have no clue which way is up and which is down? And you’re constantly clock-watching, because your ever growing to-do list requires you to be moving onto the next task? 

That’s exactly how I feel on a daily basis. And a big part of why I started this blog. 


A few years ago I was listening to a sermon by one of my favorite pastors, Levi Lusko at Fresh Life Church, and he mentioned Habakuk 2:2 in that message, and how important things in life need to be written down!

Then the Lord replied: 

Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets; so that a herald may run with it.

And with that? One of my life verses was found! I find writing things down so important – both in my faith life, and day-to-day. So when it came time to name my blog? It stuck! BRING A PEN!

I can’t wait to share some of my favorite journaling and planning tips with you!


I’m a homeschooling mama, married to my high school sweetheart and working as a full-time church tech nerd.

I love Husker Football, hanging out with my Girl Scouts and reading a good book! I have a slight addiction to colored pens and paper planners, hence the starting of this blog!

If I’m not in the sound booth at our church, you can find me hiking in the nearby Rockies with my mini-me or out in the community with our scout troops. If I happen to have a few spare minutes, I’m usually reading a book or feeding my addiction to Hallmark Movies.

I’d love to keep in touch, find me on social media!
