If you are a “scheduler” have you written yours up yet? Please share it in the comments section. If you are not a scheduler, do not let my methods frustrate you – this is NOT for everyone. Different personalities really hate this type of thing and flourish under flexibility. God wired me this way and wired you that way – each for his own good purpose. This is what makes the body of Christ beautiful. God uses us all for his glory!
