January 2020 is one for the books for me. To report on my January PowerSheets goals is just scratching the surface to tell you all that He grew in me this month—and in our marriage and children and my team. But, I hope the updates below are illuminated with this summary of my pivotal month.
Here are my January PowerSheets goals and what I learned. I can’t wait to hear about your progress, too!
January Monthly Goals:
— Cultivate our calendar for 2020—looking ahead at the whole year to plan what matters. / I made a little progress here but decided to space the planning out more by quarter. You’ll see this reflected in my February goals.
— Break my goals down using the action plan pages and yearly overview in my PowerSheets. / Done!
— Decide on new digital boundaries to try. I want to be away from the internet more—even for good things. There are so many things I want to grow and do in 2020, and I want all the time I can get to do them! I’m not sure what my new boundaries will be, so the goal is to decide on a new rhythm of when to use my phone and other digital items—and for what good purpose. / Done! More here.
January Weekly Goals:
—Sabbath / Yes! More here.
—Play more music in our home to fill our souls with music / From organizing our Spotify playlists to sitting down to our old Craigslist piano with a tattered hymnal, this has been so good.
—Write in my commonplace book. / Done! Progress made.
January Daily Goals:
—Bible reading using this plan / Loving this pace of just a small portion a day. This is giving me time to let it really sink in.
—Run with Him / YES! More here.
—Write the Word each day in the 2020 Fresh Faith Challenge / LOVED it and I’ll be keeping it going in February.
—Interact with my physical Bible / The Fresh Faith Challenge made this easy!

On to February! I have 2 goals for 2020 (each with 4 mini goals under them) that are focused on growing something that matters to me in the big picture. Each month, I’m breaking my yearly goals down using my PowerSheets®. Here’s what’s on my Tending List for the month ahead!
February Monthly Goals:
— Live into this change
— Plan our summer hiking adventures
— Make our summer homeschool plan
— Get ready for the Flower Show with Grace and my mom (!)
— Pray-pare to move into our new office
— Get outside!
— Celebrate God’s love for us
February Weekly Goals:
— Do strength training for runners
— Enjoy reading (books listed here)
— Listen to the Bema Podcast (Ari is leading a discussion group about this podcast, so I’m dipping my toe in, although much of it flies over my head) and the Bible Project Podcast (the Sabbath series is so good!).
— Make music in our home
February Daily Goals:
— Bible reading. I’m going through this plan with friends each morning.
— Run with Him using the Peloton app and my old Craigslist elliptical now in the colder months. The kids play Legos while I “run!” A few tips: I listen to my own music sometimes and watch their feet in the Tread classes pacing. You can filter out classes where the music has explicit lyrics. I do NOT love all of the classes or instruction (some of the teachers are too self-help-y for me). I do, however, love taking Matt Wilpers’ classes. He is an excellent technical trainer—takes me back to my personal training days. My form and focus are improving with his coaching!
— Write the Word each day
— Interact with my physical Bible (this is the one I’m using each night)
