2013 Personal Progress Calendar: It’s Here!

You can find the 2016 Personal Progress Calendar here.

Yes! My 2013 Personal Progress Calendar is done and ready for you! Woo hoo! Each calendar has an adorable cover, calendar pages for each month and monthly goal pages PLUS four extra pages: Plans for 2013, Scriptures, Year in Review and Testimony.

You can easily customize the monthly goal pages to fit your ward or stake’s monthly themes. Simply open up the interactive pdf file in Adobe Reader and enter a Personal Progress value, scripture, quote and Personal Progress goal on each month’s goal page. If you don’t have Adobe Reader, you can download it for free from adobe.com here. (I recommend you UNCHECK the box to install McAfee Security Plus BEFORE downloading Adobe Reader.)

To allow for further customization I’ve included individual jpeg files for use in graphic design software like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro.

I’ve included assembly instructions and supply lists in my download as well. You can make either a standing Personal Progress calendar–perfect for putting on a dresser or nightstand, or a hanging version for lockers and walls. I like to bind these calendars with a Zutter Bind-It-All, but you can also use a Cerlox machine or simply punch and tie with ribbon–whatever binding method your prefer.

A 2013 Personal Progress calendar makes a great Christmas gift or New Beginnings handout for your girls! Or, you can do like we did last year in our ward and have the girls assemble their own calendars at a Personal Progress activity. I bound them ahead of time so all the girls had to do was cut out and glue on their pages.

Download my 2013 Personal Progress Calendar {Color} here.

Both downloads include assembly instructions and supply lists.

You will need to unzip the download before you can access the files.

Remember, DO NOT share my files in any way.

Send your friends here to my blog to download their own.

All my files are for non-commercial personal or Church use only.

  1. wow it’s just beautiful.. just wondering.. Don’t you have to purchase something in order to be able to edit a pdf ?? i tried to before and it that is what it said on it Am i doing something wrong.? I have PSP and Photoshop i can edit a JPG file but not a pdf as far as i know…Our girls are going to love doing this.. project..Thank you for all your hard work.

    1. In this case, the parts you can “edit” of this pdf are text fields that allow you to type in your information–for the monthly value, scripture, goal, quote. I created those special fields (using Adobe Acrobat Pro) so you can edit/add in your own text into those fields in Adobe Reader. So, the pdf is not fully editable, but is customizable/interactive. The only drawback is that you can’t save what you type in. Adobe Reader doesn’t allow that…or at least I haven’t figured out a way to do it. πŸ™‚ So, with the “editable” pdf you can simply type in your text (it sizes the font and everything for you) and print….much faster than with Photoshop/PSP. Does that make sense? I hope your girls enjoy making this project! πŸ™‚

  2. This is so amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing and allowing us to all use your great creations! I have been so impressed with your designs…they all are gorgeous! Thank you thank you!!

  3. This is the best thank you so much πŸ˜€ I am a laurel and I am using this for the Beehives to get my Honour Bee…

  4. Super excited!! Was going to try to create one for my YW and coordinate with the new curriculum – and then i found you:) You just gave me back my weekend:)

  5. thank you! i was feeling overwhelmed with trying to find a way to get better organized. really appreciate all your hard work.

  6. I love this idea but can’t get the link to open the file. It just gives me an error that there is too much activity and the file was removed. Any suggestions?

    1. Just hang on a while longer πŸ™‚ I had sooo many downloads that dropbox suspended my account. I have found a solution and am uploading and fixing all my download links. I have fixed the 2013 Personal Progress calendar links so they should be good to go. Enjoy and thanks for your patience!

    1. Yes. Sorry about that–just too many downloads in my dropbox account. I am fixing everything now and the Personal Progress Calendar download should be good to go. Thanks so much for your patience!

  7. This is really great. Thank you so much. I have a question – I would love to use the calendar for our girls in Germany. Would it be possible to get the pages not as a pdf so I can overwrite them but still use the design? Thank you.

    1. Hi Stephanie! The download does include jpeg files of all the months and of the goal pages. Do you need something different? I’m so excited to help Young Women leaders in Germany!

  8. Hi Neishas,
    I am not sure, if you received my reply.
    I do need something different – I need to translate what you have written in the jpeg files. So I need a document like word or so.
    Is that possible?

    1. Hi Stephanie! I did get your reply–sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner. I actually typed up the calendar files in Photoshop and InDesign and so I don’t have a Word version. I was thinking maybe I could make a blank version and you could then import them into Word and add your own German-language text using a text box. What do you think?

      1. We can try it. I don’t have photoshop. So maybe it will work. Thank you for trying and all your help.

  9. I love this but when I hit the link it says that adobe reader can’t open it cause it’s a damaged file, could you help?

    1. The files download fine for me. Have you unzipped the file once you’ve downloaded it? You may also need to try downloading the files again and then unzipping them before you open them up in Adobe Reader. Let me know if you’re still having issues πŸ™‚

  10. What a great calendar. I have just been called to young women and I’m a bit overwhelmed :o) I love would love to give this calendar to the girls in my branch. I’m from Denmark and has to make a lot of changes in the text, so I was wondering if you made a blank one for Stephanie that you could share with me? Thank you for all the great ideas. I loooove them and they are such an inspiration:o)

    1. Awww….thanks! Yes, I will be making 2014 Personal Progress calendars as well as a planning calendar. Watch for them later in the year πŸ™‚

  11. Oh my word…such a lot of work you have done! I just discovered your blog! Wonder if I can get it all in before the end of 2013? I’m hoping you will have time to do 2014 stuff…I’m anxiously awaiting and will be prompt about checking in!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent!

  12. Hi! I absolutely love this!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to put it all together. I was wondering what font you used for the months in this version — I would love to get it. Thanks again. You are awesome!
