q & a – with Jessica from Maestro Manager

So, 2015 is coming to an end… Can you believe it?

I don’t know about you, but I have been looking for new ways to get organized and plan better when it comes to my schedule. Juggling four kids, a hubby, ministry, and a business is keeping me on my toes lately. I know that when I take the time plan, I feel more at ease (even if the plan has to change, at least I started with one).

Long story short… my good friend Jess has designed an amazing planner that I can’t wait to get my hands on!

I wanted to share the information with you as well!

Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a homeschool mom with three amazing bio kids and one sweet foster baby. I love to plan to a fault and enjoy using my free time to create spreadsheets and I love to exercise.

What is the maestro manager? The Maestro Manager is a Life Planner that organizes the six areas of our lives which are Mind, Body, Soul, Home, Community and Work. It’s a “Maestro” because it gently directs theses areas much like a maestro of an orchestra. It has wonderful features like a monthly budgeting sheet, weekly soul care focus, and tools to keep you on track with your health and fitness goals.

What gave you the dream/idea behind it?  I wanted something like this for myself, something that had all these features in one place. I wanted something that involved pen and paper because I’ve tried different apps on my phone but found myself frittering instead of being productive. My life is crazy and I felt like the areas of my life were meant to sound like a beautiful song led by an amazing Composer, but it was being played by an elementary school band. I wanted a maestro to help keep things balanced and organized.

What’s something you are super passionate about right now? I’m incredibly passionate about getting individuals involved in the foster care community. There is such a huge need for families to care for these special children. As a Christian, God has called me to care for the orphans and widows of this world, and foster kids definitely fall into this category. I would love to see the waiting list of children longing for loving home change to a list of individuals waiting to take in a foster child.

One word of advice to other mamas? Give yourself grace, give your children a good example of falling your knees when you are in need, then let them witness God rise you up again. This is something my mom did so well growing up. My hope for myself is that when I’m prone to fear I would do the same thing and my kids can witness how faithful and wonderful God is when He comes through.
