~ Our Team ~
Sandi Lucas is the founder and CEO of The Blaze Planner. Sandi's journey in founding The Blaze Planner® was many years in the making. In fact, she has been on a quest to design a planner for women that could help them live intentionally for the glory of God since she was in her twenties. An avid student of time management and organization tips, she has amassed a library full of books, attended many seminars, and found herself still struggling to "keep it all together." Then she discovered the great paradox - when you surrender to God in ALL areas of life …. You WIN - no matter if every little thing is in its place or not. Vowing to share this revolutionary approach with young and more seasoned women alike, Sandi created the foundation for this planner called The Blaze Lighthouse Process™ - that equips women to put the principles of the Bible into practice every day.
Sandi balanced this approach herself while raising her children and working full time in the high technology industry. She has lead sales teams for Fortune 100 and 200 companies, and was a senior leader in the semiconductor realm for over 30 years. She is involved in her local church, and leads a prayer group in her county that focuses on biblical public policy.
Sandi is married to her husband of over 30 years, and has 4 grown daughters and one precious grandson. She and her husband Luke reside in a small town near Houston, Texas

~ Our Story of the Blaze Lighthouse Picture ~
In January of 2016, I visited the Outer Banks to see my sister for her birthday. We drove out to Cape Hatteras and got out of the car. As we walked along the beach picking up shells, I remember thinking— what a beautiful creation God has made—the ocean, the sanderling birds, the blue crab, and it was truly a wonderful day. I had also been thinking about what to name our conceptual planner company. It’s a tool to help women live intentionally and shine brilliantly for God.
As we were leaving, I snapped the picture on the right of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on my phone and didn’t look at it until later in the day. As you can see—it is a beautiful clear blue sky. The lighthouse WAS NOT ON! My daughter Stephanie took one look at the picture, and the planner name was born—BLAZE. It is a reflection of the Sun—although we call it Sonshine!
