When I came on Staff for my very first Student Ministry position (Jr. High Intern), one of my first tasks was to get a Day-Timer. As goofy and nerdy as it sounds, I was really pumped to get it. In one simple place, I could keep my schedule, notes, contacts and other important information. I was going to be ORGANIZED!
But, with time and the development of technology, the Day-Timer, while still around is not used nearly as much as in its hayday.
What is the Day-Timer replaced with today? Any smartphone or tablet. No more refills, no more white out to undo a changed appointment or contact number and no more lugging around a book with all your info on it. The smartphone and table have made it easy for us to do all the things that Day-Timer could do and so much more.
