Whatever is True - Poetry / Praise / Prayer Planner

Siguro naman hindi pa late para sa post na ito. Para sa lahat na nagdecide na ang mga 2020 goals ay sa February na lang sisimulan at ang January ay free trial month, gusto ko lang i-flex itong planner na nakuha ko as a freebie sa Journaling Seminar na inattendan ko last year.

Whatever is True Poetry / Praise / Prayer Planner is OMF’s offer para maging mas organized, mas up-to-date and mas monitored mo ang journey mo for the year. And true to its name, it abounds with encouragement and literary works to feed and satisfy your soul.


May weekly reading plan siya to help you read the entire Old Testament or New Testament (or both!) and track your progress.


Of course, 2020-2021 calendars para may foresight tayo sa ating planadong kaganapan at mga future “drawing” na lakad.


Heto ang itsura ng monthly spread niya. Perfect for planning your appointments, events, mga holidays at paggagamitan ng leave credits (just use them wisely). Ang cool lang na undated siya para kung sakaling gusto mong gamitin ulit for next year yung planner, pwedeng-pwede.


And here’s the weekly spread for your day to day activities. Jot down your daily highlights, prayers, one-liners from the Lord, or something that piqued you for the day! Use it however you like. One more thing, it comes with a weekly journaling prompt and a writing/doodling space for your creative thoughts. Di ba ang saya?

Some planners I’ve seen kasi, either overwhelming or nakakabitin yung blank spaces for me to write on. But this planner has enough space para sa hindi masyadong ma-“diary” type like me. Kung wala kang entry for the week, hindi masyadong nakaka-guilty. A picture, a sticker or a doodle will do. Haha!

May mga encouraging quotations pa from different OMF books and from the Scriptures.


Doodling/blank pages para sa mga “writer’s flow” moment. Pwede rin sa mga listahan ng mga librong gusto kong bilhin at basahin. Pwede rin for customized “trackers” like sleep tracker, tardiness tracker, “ipon” tracker, etc. Listahan ng utang? Pwede!


These monthly graphics does not only serve as a marker, but as a breather. And life’s like that. We need to set milestones – to celebrate victories, to assess our growth, to recharge and to plan ahead. Di ba may hugot pa. Naaliw lang talaga ako. Marami pa yan, ‘tamo.


Every month, it features a poem: from a Filipino poet, excerpt from the Bible, or a classic sonnet. Kaya siya Poetry / Praise / Prayer Planner. SKL yung nabasa kong quote from Robert Frost, “poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

I write poems from time to time and all of them were penned after an emotional episode: heartbreak, sudden gush of love, overwhelming praise, thanksgiving, etc. Kaya sobrang appreciated ko ang poetry – it speaks volumes even with limited words.


There you have it! Whatever is True Poetry / Praise / Prayer Planner. Available sa lahat ng OMF Lit bookshops near you for Php 350. I believe it is not too late to start a new planner this year!

Overall, here’s my take on the planner (yes, from the person who wrote Magplano Kahit Walang Planner):

  • Enough spaces to write/journal/doodle. Not too much na nakaka-guilty na kapag may di ka nasulatan, not too bitin naman kapag bigla kang ginanahan. It’s a yes for me! Ewan ko lang sa iba. Haha!
  • Journaling prompts are yeabah! Perfect for seasons na wala akong maisip isulat. Yay!
  • Di ko alam, gustong-gusto ko yung monthly graphics.
  • Yung pagiging undated niya. Parang ikaw loljk.
  • I am using Dong-A 0.5 Fine Tech, parang pansin sa likod ng paper? Or siguro masyado ko lang dinidiinan yung sulat ko. Haha! Perhaps if ibang pen ang gamit, or mas magaan ang sulat, hindi na halata.
  • Hindi siya white paper. Pero not a big deal. Wala na kasi akong maidagdag. Haha!

But wait!

In case you don’t know, I am one of the contributors sa weekly devotional book na Kaya Ko Pa Bes! And other Lies I Tell Myself (OMF Lit, Php 225). So why not pair this planner with our book (syempre, plugging haha) and kick off your spiritual journey. You may also order the planner and the book thru https://www.passagesbooks.com/ Aja!
