A planner for educators who want to prioritize what matters most - at school, at home, & in their spiritual walk

As an educator, you have about a million things to do.  If you happen to be a mom like me and have a busy household, life gets even crazier.

As you get clear on your priorities, you will begin to focus your time on doing more of the BEST things. And you'll start to enjoy a beautiful balance between your home & work priorities.

God has amazing plans for you, your students, and your family.  It’s time for you to ENJOY them!

The Reviews Are In!

"I love how much space this planner has to write in! But it's not just blank space- it prompts you to do super helpful tasks, such as brain dumping, making a to-do list, and praying!" - Alexx S.

"I love the big TO-DO list area. It's awesome! As a teacher, I have seriously A TON to do each day. But, what I love more, is right near that big long list is an area for prayer. I need those reminders to bring my day, my heart, my worries, and even my lists to God and share them with him." - Sarah H.

"As a new teacher I quickly learned that being a teacher involves more than just teaching students. Teaching is also about managing the classroom, time, prep, expectations of me and so on. Having a planner with quotes and scripture that encourages me as I try to manage it all is important to me and my favorite part of Pray & Plan." - Taren M.

Why You'll ❤️ Pray & Plan


Hi! I’m Linda Kardamis, former teacher and founder of Teach 4 the Heart. I know firsthand how overwhelming teaching can be - and how paralyzing it can feel to have so much to do and no time to do it.

That's why we developed Pray & Plan - to help take the stress out of your to-do's by clearly prioritizing and planning. And, more importantly, to integrate your spiritual walk into your day-to-day life as an educator - which I know is as important to you as it is to me!

Linda Kardamis is the creator of Pray & Plan: the planner for Christian teachers
