Feeling SO READY for the new month ahead?
I’m right there with you—my plans didn’t go as planned in August!
You’re ready for a new month of fresh routines.
A month of getting the best things done.
A month of crisp air and being re-energized.
A month of intentional decisions.
A month of soul rest.
A month of savoring.
“Savor” means to enjoy something completely. Fully. All-in. This month, let’s do that. Let’s savor the little things that add up to our lives!
A quick progress update on my August PowerSheets goals and what I learned is below. I hope this encourages you to celebrate even the tiny victories!
August Monthly Goals:
— Do the Fresh Faith Challenge. / Our house sort of fell apart in August (exploding water heater flooded the kids’ room and our living room so the kids are all sleeping with us right now) and I count these 6 days of Writing the Word as a big win! I did it under the covers with soft light so I wouldn’t wake everyone at night. 🙂
— Number my days and gain a heart of wisdom. / Yes, the Lord did this for me. Through Eva and several family members having major health issues, I have been constantly reminded that this life is a GIFT and I want to live it with all of me for the glory of the Lord!
— Prepare for fall homeschool. / YES! I LOVE MY HOMESCHOOL PLANNER! Get it for free here.
— Finish the first draft of the book. / Yes! The first draft has been submitted for feedback to my editor! Yippee!
— Take a month of rest from the podcast. Hear that story here. / Yes, and taking most of September off, too. The next episode will be live for you on September 25th!
— Teach the “How to Cultivate Your Calendar” class with Shunta. / This was so much fun. You can catch the replay here.
August Weekly Goals:
— Prepare for Q4 / Yes! 2020 PowerSheets are coming October 16th!
— Enjoy the garden right where I am (listen in here for more!)
— Delight in our home. / Yes – from music to an abundance of library trips that have filled the house with books, there has been lots of delight in our house.
August Daily Goals: / Progress on all of them below!
— Cultivate my days
— Bible reading
— Run! Praise!
— Write the Word
Don’t miss these from August:
—There are only 25 tickets left for Cultivate Your Year Live!
—Enter the End of Summer Giveaway–it’s so good!
—Get back to what matters this coming season with us—this bundle is going fast.

On to September! Long story, but I unexpectedly have no childcare for most of September. I’m excited for this time with them and also excited to be the most efficient with work I’ve ever been. I’m not sure how it’s all going to work yet, but little by little, the best things will get done!
My goals in September are simple and purposeful—and more big-picture so I can be flexible in how I tackle them with the time I’m given.
September Monthly Goals:
— (In light of what I shared above…) Ask God to prioritize my days
— Do what’s most important in the big picture
— Finish the BOOK
— Delight in the Lord
— Enjoy the best month in the garden
September Weekly Goals:
— Cultivated homeschool begins!
— Pray over the 2020 PowerSheets. I’ll be praying over every set as they get nestled in our warehouse for launch day—that they would be filled with good things and help women to walk in the light of life!
September Daily Goals:
— Bible reading each morning
