Heavenly Simplicity

As you stare ahead at your schedule, your tasks, your problems, your questions, life can feel so complicated. As I read through 1 Corinthians Chapter 7, Paul was reiterating the importance of simplicity. While the people of Corinth needed to hear this, I believe it is even more relevant in our complicated world of 2018.

What is complicating your life right now? Bring it to the front of your mind.
Your marriage? Your next move? A recent betrayal? Too much to get done? Busy schedule? Sickness?

"I do want to point out, friends, that time is of the essence. There is no time to waste, so don't complicate your lives unnecessarily. Keep it simple -- in marriage, grief, joy, whatever. Even in ordinary things- your daily routines of shopping a so on. Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. This world as you see it is on its way out." - 1 Corinthians 7:29-31 MSG

What is the world giving you, pushing on you? More credit cards? Debt? Doubt? Comparison? Lack? Shame? 

My prayer over you today is that you would encounter 'Heavenly Simplicity.' Where the reality of your Heavenly Father and your eternal salvation allows your mind to ZOOM OUT on your circumstances and see what matters.
When we meditate on Heaven with thanksgiving in our heart, there is a perspective shift of simplicity. Let's live this week with 'Heavenly Simplicity,' knowing that the battle is won and we are loved and seen by our Heavenly Father. 

"....All I want is for you to be able to develop a way of life in which you can spend plenty of time together with the Master without a lot of distractions." 1 Corinthians 7:35 MSG

How can we live with more Heavenly Simplicity?
We have five ideas for you!


#1 Give your morning to God. Tithe your day and give God your best by spending time in prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. Journal your morning thoughts to God, it's like "spiritual windshield wipers."


#2 Get out of Debt. We recommend Dave Ramsey's Finacial Peace University. Don't let the world teach you about your money, allow a man of God explains the importance of financial peace! 


#3 Get more rest. Go to bed earlier and enjoy more physical rest. 


#4 Say 'no' to activities that are not serving you, and who you are becoming. Learn more in our dream planning tutorials. 


#5 Spend time in His Holy Word. Join our lent bible study challenge! We are reading the four gospels in 46 days! It's as simple as 3 chapters a day and a break on Sunday! Type in your name and email address below and we will send you all the details!

Seasons Of Soap

 Hello Friend! I am so excited to reveal our Seasons of Soap Bible Study journal! 

Pre-Order Now 

The purpose of our SOAP journal is to navigate the seasons of life using God's holy word. This journal contains five seasons including; finding purpose, seeking wisdom, transition, anxiety, and joy. 

Each season contains a 14-day SOAP bible study, with a journal entry in at the beginning and end to open up and offer your heart your God. 

The space in our book is minimal and very open, so you can also use this daily space to journal about your day, write what you are thankful for, and meditate on what the Lord is speaking to you. There is no right or wrong way to do it; it is your journey to finding truth in God's word so that you can grow strong in the LORD. 

"I have been so blessed to learn the SOAP method at my church Hillsong NYC, and after incorporating it into my daily routine, the Bible began to challenge, uplift and refine me in new ways! God has pressed this product on my heart for years, and I am so excited to place it in the hands of His children and give them a beautiful space to fall in love with His words on a new level."- Polly

What is the SOAP method? 

SCRIPTURE - First you read a bible verse. In our book, the verse is printed inside. 
OBSERVATION - Write down your personal observation about this verse. We invite you to meditate on this verse and soak in the meaning. 
APPLICATION - How can you walk it out? How can you apply this verse to your life today? Can you apply it to the way you love, lead, forgive, or look at the world today? 
PRAYER - Finally you write your prayer to the Lord.

Whats your word for 2018?

Whats your word for 2018?

Tell us what YOUR word is in the comments below!


Hello Horacio Printing Family! Happy New Year! 2018 is HERE! We are looking forward to 2018 with open hearts and fresh vision. Last year our word was BOLD and our bold dreams lead us to open a warehouse and walk through many NEW and unfamiliar doors God has opened! God is so good and we are so thankful for the year we have had! 


Our word for 2018 is EXPECTANT. We are expecting God to open new doors, to speak new visions and bring restoration. Isn't it amazing that we get to co-labor with Him to design our future? 

Too often we try to take on the stress and burden of my visions and dreams coming true. This year we commit to carrying the passion, excitement, and vision forward and leaving the stress behind in 2017. God will bring the victory! 

That is why I wait expectantly, trusting God to help, for He has promised.Psalm 130:5, TLB

 No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame…Psalm 25:3, NIV

I have been meditating on how to not only believe but LIVE expectantly. Here are my three tangible commitments for 2018 to live expectant for God's miracles. 

#1 Pray continuously, boldly declare my desires to God with confidence. I want to handwrite my prayers, and my praises to stay wide awake to His goodness. 
#2 Stay in the word (filling my spirit) - Rebuke fears of doubt, by speaking Gods word over my fears.
#3 Take time to enjoy the fruit of God's blessing through real Sabbath. See the world in light, the way God sees it. Filling myself, resting my soul the way I am uniquely designed to do so!

Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. Romans 12:11 -13, MSG

As a company, we are believing that is 2018 we will 
.......reach and exceed our goal of $50,000 in support to A21.
.......hire at-risk women in our warehouse and give them hope through dignified work surrounded by loving Christians.
.......hear testimonies from people using our 2018 planners and seeing a personal transformation and kingdom impact. 
....... launch our new (top secret) products in 2018 and bring hope, passion, purpose, and restoration to the lives they touch.

What are you believing for? What is your word? Comment below.

We are rooting for you!

Giving Back - Holiday Gift Guide

Giving Back - Holiday Gift Guide

November 17, 2017 by Polly Payne


November is here! It's officially holiday time, sweater weather and all things cozy. Today is All Saints Day, a day in the Catholic church to celebrate all who have entered heaven. While I don't celebrate all Catholic holidays, whatever your denomination may be, I think it is a beautiful thing to remember and thank God for those who have gone before us, mentored us, and sacrificed to build the local church.

Who are you thankful for? Maybe a grandparent, an aunt, your mother, or a friend who showed you kindness while on your journey to Jesus.

Life is short. Our time on earth and what we do with it matters. God has great plans for you and we pray that you take time to say NO to activities that do not serve you or God's will for your life.

I saw a neat thing online where people were participating in 'No'vember. It's where you write down what you are going to say NO to this month. Saying no to things that waste your time is vital to making margin for your dreams!

What are you saying NO to this month?


Grab a journal and take this challenge with us!

Fall Seasonal Refresh

"Fall is a season of great beauty, but it is also a season of decline; the days grow shorter, the light is suffused, and summer's abundance decays towards winter's death. Faced with this inevitable winter, what does nature do in autumn? It scatters the seeds that will bring new growth in the spring - and scatters them with amazing abandon!" - Parker Palmer


Every three months in our planner, we have a special place to refocus and refresh. We invite you to join us!
