GRACE-FILLED GOAL SETTING FREE E-BOOK + HUGE GIVEAWAY

, , ,
Share

Last week, I sat in a team meeting where we went through our company PowerSheets. We talked about long-term goals and… I was stumped. I couldn’t think of any. I felt tense. I sat in bed with Ari that night and told him that I was frustrated for not being about to see or define the big picture for our company. So, he prayed over me, “God, help Lara uncover goals.” It was a simple prayer, and it broke through something in me. I realized that I’ve been feeling some fear about setting goals lately. Have you been feeling that too? The mere act of acknowledging my fears, and working through my PowerSheets to see the bigger picture, allowed me to move through them and I am so grateful! I uncovered good goals, and they’ve given all of us clarity, direction, and a whole lot of peace this week.

If you need a breakthrough too, I’ve created a FREE Top 10 Keys to Make What Matters Happen E-book that you can get by signing up here. Inside the guide, you’ll find a replay of my live Grace-Filled Goal Setting PowerSheets Webinar, my top tips for uncovering intentional goals and making little by little progress on them, and the first chapter of my book Make It HappenYes, it’s free, because I know what it’s like to feel stuck, and I want to equip you to make meaningful progress in your own lives.

    Loved listening to you live today! Thank you for all of your wisdom and restating not to glorify busyness. 🙂

  2. Amy Wagner on August 31, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you so much for today’s Goal Getting Video! So very helpful and inspiring!

  3. ASHLEE on August 31, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    thank you for being faithful to share your true self with each of us.

  4. Vida on August 31, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    This webinar was just what I needed to hear today! I am mom to a toddler and work parttime from home — balancing it all can be tough when there is no clear boundary between work life and family life. I don’t want my son to always remember me on my phone … this was super inspiring to me!!! Thank you!

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:32 pm

      Girl, my blood pressure was going up near the end of the webinar from being late to nurse Josh. #MamaProblems! Grateful today encouraged you! : )

    • Sarah on August 31, 2016 at 8:05 pm

      I have the same struggle, which is reflected in the goals I am supposed to share in this post 🙂

      My goals are
      1- to be an engaged & present mom and wife. To do this, I will be there for them when they ask me. When my kids ask me to play or when my husband starts to talk to me, I will put down my to-do list in favor of something better. I will also work during my designated work time and not let it bleed over, even if it means I have to leave things undone.

      2) I will keep work manageable and enjoyable by curating my client list/projects to a manageable amount of projects that I am passionate about. I don’t have to take on every project I am asked to do, and I don’t have to exceed expectations on every project–meeting them is fine. 🙂

  5. Abbey Hubbard on August 31, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    I’m so grateful I stumbled upon PowerSheets on Pinterest. I’ve struggled for a long time with KNOWING what I need to do to make progress towards my goals, but not being able to DO what needed to be done. I started my 6 month PowerSheets in June (prep) and July (started working the plan) and they’ve literally changed my life. My last two months have been incredibly fruitful in both my work and personal life and I feel like I’m actually living my life rather than just surviving it anymore. Thank you Lara and everyone of your support team for bringing me so much encouragement through all the little things. Your work changed my life for the better, and for that I am incredibly thankful!

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:31 pm

      Abbey, I’m so grateful to meet you here! So encouraged by you!!!

  6. Sasha-Shae Weekes on August 31, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    LOVED today’s Grace lessons! Such a timely reminder that I need to focus on what God has planted in my life, and to also trust Him in every aspect and not be defeated by fear. Because at the end of it all, that acorn will turn into a huge oak tree with proper nourishment and love, and perseverance. Also loving my 2016 PowerSheets, I’m new to them but love love love them!! Thanks Lara!!

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:31 pm

      Yay Sasha-Shae!

  7. Susanna Knittel on August 31, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    Thank you for the seminar! It was so encouraging!

  8. Carolina on August 31, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    Great webinar! So much wisdom shared but specially practical advice. It is so empowering to hear that I am not alone in this journey. Thanks for the encouragement and for always helping us to redirect our focus on what matters!

  9. Karen on August 31, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    Lara, it was so nice to hear you speak about Goal Getting today in your webinar. I really liked seeing you share how you use your powersheets as well. I do something very basic in another journal and love the idea of your powersheets.

  10. Caroline on August 31, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    Thank you for making something that will change the way I make goals. I loved your book and finished it in one weekend. I couldn’t put it down! It was better than a mystery novel. Fitness, photography, and loving my family are my BIG Goals this year!

  11. Lorraine aka ClosetDelights on August 31, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    Loved the GRACE FILLED Goal Setting Webinar today. And if I win only one thing, let it be this Giveaway! 😀

  12. Nicole on August 31, 2016 at 2:02 pm

    So enjoyed the webinar today. Would love the opportunity to use the items listed and share some simplified planners with friends (i have my happy stripe already 🙂
    Regardless will be ordering the 2017 power sheets but a complimentary set would be a great blessing.
    Thanks Lara

  13. Ashlee Thurlow Geheb on August 31, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    Love this Lara! Thank you for the class today, it helped me get out of a tough funk I’ve been in lately!!!! Today I’m encouraging my sister who’s starting her senior yr in college and my hubby who just started a new job – letting them know that God’s got them and all the “mountains” they may face this year!

  14. Danielle G on August 31, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    What a great webinar! I’m so excited to get my goals in order!

  15. Dani on August 31, 2016 at 2:10 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing your heart with people.

  16. Rachel Knutson on August 31, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Thank you for all that you for all of you knowledge and sharing it. I have learned so much for listening to your encouraging words.May God bless you and your family!

  17. Cathy on August 31, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Thank you, thank you for taking your precious time and spending it with us on the webinar. One of the things I appreciate most about you is your genuine spirit and willingness to be humble and share your struggles with us! Sometimes social media feels so perfect, and you help bring reality back. Thank you for encouraging us to be okay with life being messy.

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      I’m really encouraged by your thoughts. Thank you for this. I’m grateful it was helpful!

  18. Sarah on August 31, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    One of my goals is to finish my book proposal!!

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      Yay, that’s exciting!

  19. Ashley McGee on August 31, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    Thank you for having the courage to share your heart! I couldn’t tune in live since I’m at work (better get off your site!) But, I’m anxiously looking forward to the replay tonight after I put my little one to bed.

  20. Kristina Trommel on August 31, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom this morning. Slowly by slowly shifting the thinking to doing is happening.

  21. Beth Van Gelder on August 31, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Thank you so much for your inspiration! The Power Sheets have been amazing to use this year. I am looking forward to the webinar replay. What a great giveaway!

  22. Arielle on August 31, 2016 at 2:25 pm

    Started my Power Sheets yesterday…excited for this journey! I’m struggling with not having BIG goals that will help others. My goals seem so selfish – clear the clutter in my house, clean out my closet, exercise… I want to feel like my life’s purpose is to do something bigger. That I’m here to help others. But maybe first I have to help myself. To recharge my tank. Maybe that is my season right now.

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:29 pm

      I’m excited for you! Sometimes, getting the “surface” things done does help us to uncover a bigger picture. Keep leaning into that restlessness!

  23. Meg Montgomery on August 31, 2016 at 2:25 pm

    I loved listening to your webinar and can’t wait for the new powersheets and sticker book!

  24. Kim Soutullo on August 31, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    I love how real you are – and are blessed daily by you and what you post on instagram!

  25. Kristyn on August 31, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    Thank You for your honest transparency not only today but in every live event. It encourages me to be honest as well. So many times, in my personal relationships but especially my work life, friends are unwilling to admit to the struggle and share their messes. I find myself pulling away from those people, because I’m done pretending. I just want to be honest. You’ve been a big part of that personal growth. Thank You.

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:28 pm

      Kristyn, I’m so grateful for your heart!

  26. Megan on August 31, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    Thankyou so much for your ministry! You’re such an encouragement to me these past few weeks! 🙂

  27. Julie on August 31, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    What a wonderful give-a-way! Thank you! You are such an inspiring person and I always feel motivated after listening to you!

  28. Stephanie on August 31, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    Thank you, Lara! You’re such an inspiration!

  29. Wimberley on August 31, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    PowerSheets have changed my year AND life! A few of my goals this year are to:

    – Clutter bust every area of life
    – Continue to pursue a Christ-centered marriage
    – Create often and well
    – Start a garden
    – Pursue a healthy lifestyle (mind, body, and spirit)
    – Create meaningful and lasting friendships by sending handmade monthly encouragement cards
    – Make my secret, art-focused Instagram account public to friends and family on the first day of fall

    I can wholeheartedly say I’ve touched on each and every goal at some point this year, and I cannot wait to see how 2017 will piggy-back on these goals and many more! 🙂

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:27 pm

      This is so encouraging!!

  30. Elizabeth on August 31, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Thanks for the reminder to have grace filled goals!

  31. Michelle on August 31, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Can’t wait to watch today’s replay! Thank you, Lara!

  32. Cathy Van de Casteele on August 31, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    We had our first Power Sheets Meet Up in Colorado Springs last night. 11 ladies came and we can’t wait until next month!

  33. Christine Diaz on August 31, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    My goals are to start making little by little progress on the weeknights and weekends on my business idea, to study Spanish at least once a week to connect more with my in-laws, and to find more ways to grow spiritually with my husband.

  34. Kelly on August 31, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Jumping over to rewatch the webinar now! Yay!

  35. Sarah on August 31, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    Thanks for the great webinar this afternoon – the Power Sheets have made such a huge difference in my life the last few years, and I love hearing you talk about how you’re finding and working towards your goals. My big goal right now is helping M adjust smoothly to life as a preschooler – she starts in 2 weeks, and I know our lives are going to be insane for a while until we all get used to it!

  36. Sam Luton on August 31, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    Loved listening to the webinar. Thank you for your guidance. I’m excited to take my first step to imperfect progress. It’s a daily struggle to stay focused on my goals but hoping that by identify my grace-filled goals I’ll be more energized to achieve them! Thank you for all you do.

  37. Jenn on August 31, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Thank you for all you do!

  38. Brianna on August 31, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    I loved the webinar this morning (listened to it at work ;)), and I can’t wait to re-watch it at home and take notes! This giveaway is so generous! I can’t wait to get my hands on the new power sheets! 🙂

  39. Michelle on August 31, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    Loved the webinar! So inspired to tackle my Power Sheets for September!!!!!

  40. Allison on August 31, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    I’m hoping to get at least two more clients by the end of the year!

  41. Kayleen on August 31, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    Loved the webinar!! Some of the goals I’ve been working through in my PowerSheets are:
    -Love and serve my people and community well
    -Strengthen and grow relationships, both new and old
    -Simplify!! Everything before baby #2 arrives.

  42. Jennifer on August 31, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    The webinar was great! Thank you for all you do for the rest of us 🙂

  43. Melanie Parker on August 31, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    So excited about these pretty AND practical power sheets for 2017!!

  44. Catherine on August 31, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    Many thanks for the webinar today! I have had my Power Sheets since last NOVEMBER and this time was the kick in the posterior I need to get moving on these.Lara, I so appreciate your candor in sharing your own struggles. You bring joy and inspiration to so many. And on a less serious note, as a redhead with straight hair, I love love love your abundant curls!

  45. Sonja on August 31, 2016 at 3:34 pm

    exactly what I needed to hear today – THANK YOU!

  46. Krystal on August 31, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    What another amazing webinar! I can’t wait for the 2017 powersheets! between them and the MTH conference in March, my life is on such a good path now. I can’t thank you enough!

  47. Misty on August 31, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Awesome! Thank you so much Lara for all the inspiration and motivation. Listening to your webinars, live chats, and audio book… keeps me going! Trying my best to ‘Make it Happen’. Thank you, thank you for making YOURS happen, so the rest of us can (attempt) to make ours happen too.

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      I’m so grateful to hear that, Misty!

  48. Kelsey Drifmeyer on August 31, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    I’m so thankful for these videos. I’m home with kiddos and I love having something to keep my mind focused on living intentionally. My goals for the fall are to do school well (just started a master’s program) and build into my family.

  49. Stephanie on August 31, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    Goal setting can absolutely be intimidating! Thank you for the encouragement, for sharing your own vulnerabilities, and for constantly focusing my attention on what matters most!

  50. Dessy on August 31, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    I have a book that needs writing and I need more clarity in the art curriculum I’m teaching at my son’s school!!

  51. Terri Wilkinson on August 31, 2016 at 4:10 pm

    So blessed to listen to your webinar today! Can’t wait for the new Powersheets and I am adding a dream of mine to my bucket list….attending the Make It Happen Conference.

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      I would love to see you there! : )

  52. Stacey on August 31, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    I really appreciated your webinar today! My goal for the month of September will be to make another attempt at powersheets and sticking with it… I bought a set a (last year?) and have written and re-written (in a different journal) trying to start fresh. Maybe today’s webinar was the encouragement I need, to tackle it “little by little.”

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      Yes, make a mess and dig in! : )

  53. Kayla on August 31, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    Woohoo! Such beautiful things!! I LOVE my PowerSheets and i’m learning how to set goals that push me but not overwhelm me. I’ve always set too high goals and then at the first sight of failure been tempted to give up! PowerSheets have been a reminder to take things day by day and see progress over time! Some of my goals are finishing school by the summer (yay!!), being more consistent with my exercise, even if that’s just walking a little every day, and intentional living with those around me here in these season (and the smaller goals that encompass that!)

  54. Becky on August 31, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    Just started on my first set of powersheets and my goals are coming together as I work through the first pages. One of my most important- getting healthy enough to be able to play all day with my boys and (God willing) have my fourth baby in 3 years (praying for twins because we’re crazy like that)! Because what matters most to me- is family.

  55. Kayla on August 31, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    Also, I love encouraging others by just telling them the ways I see Jesus in them! I just texted my sweet friend Mary Claire to tell her how Jesus in her is beautiful and how it’s impacted my life!

  56. Sarah on August 31, 2016 at 4:19 pm

    Thank you so much for pouring out your heart so often, Lara!!

  57. Tiffany on August 31, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    I’m excited and anxious about setting goals and tending to them and progressing little by littlr

  58. Emily Enockson on August 31, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    Just got home from a morning of gardening with the kiddos at ZA and am so incredibly blessed by your “Dream like a gardner” thoughts. Planting those small seeds in GOOD soil and tending to them consistantly is what makes all the difference. Thanks for the encouragement for goal getting my friend!!

  59. Schanne on August 31, 2016 at 4:41 pm

    Thanks for reminding me that God’s grace is sufficient!!

  60. Schanne on August 31, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    I decided to encourage my sister today she has been in a dry season. However I’m encouraging her to continue steadfast in her prayers and God will make a way!

    • Lara on August 31, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      Yes, this is wonderful! You are a great sister!

  61. monica on August 31, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    My 2017 is going to be SO DIFFERENT than 2016. I can’t wait to get new powersheets.

  62. Becky on August 31, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    I encouraged my fellow goal setting loving sister to check out the powersheets. I ended up encouraging myself by sharing all that I am learning and the amazing God glorifying goals that I’m starting to set. The big, scary, wonderful things that He is calling me to.!

  63. Trisha Marie on August 31, 2016 at 4:49 pm

    Lara, you are such a blessing! Your message and honesty is so refreshing! I loved your thoughts on ‘acorns’ and ‘seasons’ – I always walk away from your webinars with such a grateful heart and am so inspired by you!

  64. Mary Kate Battles on August 31, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    thanks!

  65. Mary Kate Battles on August 31, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    thanks! I’m soooooo excited.

  66. Kristina on August 31, 2016 at 5:07 pm

    My goal is to really open up and be more vulnerable with those around me and let God really take me to places that he needs me to be. He has led me to season and back into wellness after a short sabbatical of my previous wellness career. And my goal is to really focus on my wellness business and glorify Him through it all.

  67. Kristina on August 31, 2016 at 5:08 pm

    I just encouraged a sweet friend of mine today that is going through a lot of uncertain waters. I encouraged her to live in the now and remember that God is always holding her In the palm of His hand.

  68. Grace on August 31, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Love your blog, love your constant encouragement, love your giveaway! Thanks for all you do Lara. 🙂

  69. Rachel on August 31, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    Thank you for sharing this today! My goals are to deepen my faith and find contentment in my season of wait!

  70. Lindsey H. on August 31, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    My goals are to reduce clutter in my life, both physical and mentally draining items. I also want to create a healthy lifestyle for myself first and then my family. I want to also create a better, more personal relationship with Christ. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  71. Megan on August 31, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    To simplify my life, to find community and to improve my health!

  72. Bethany Davidson on August 31, 2016 at 6:00 pm

    The Powersheets and Make It Happen have been a huge instrument of change in my life for the first time this year! I have always struggled with laziness and procrastination, but I have finally made incredible progress in this area, largely in part to the encouragement and structure Lara, her team, and the Powersheets have provided! I am so thankful to the Lord for using these tools in my life and heart.

  73. Amia on August 31, 2016 at 6:04 pm

    The timing of this today after listening to the Revelation Wellness podcast on being uncomfortable

  74. Joy on August 31, 2016 at 6:04 pm

    You all are amazing and I love this company, the mission, the people, and the products.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:58 pm

      Thank you, Joy!

  75. Rhonda on August 31, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    You are my favorite person….that I’ve never met. 🙂 When I slip into this space, your raw honesty and tenderness is always a refreshing gift. Thank you for that. Thanks for how Powersheets have stirred up my life this year. I’m pressing into the final four months. Also, my one word this year is Flourishing. 🙂 <——–so much more I could say about that!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      Wishing I could hug you! Thank you for saying hello : )

  76. Irma C on August 31, 2016 at 6:08 pm

    Love love LOVE all of the resources that I have found through your blog! Have shared so much of what I have found with friends! Looking forward to more exploring! 🙂

  77. Brittani on August 31, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    Love your encouragement and wisdom! I am looking forward to starting this next season in life with grace-filled goals and a heart full of summer 🙂

  78. Donna-Marie on August 31, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    Tons of goals. I’d love to see my business grow, help my daughter prep for college in only two years, grow closer to my husband, and get various little ones reading/pottytrained! 🙂

  79. Kristine Harding on August 31, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    Lara!! I love listening to all your webinars and Wednesday fb live videos!! They are so inspirational and I am so glad I took the leap in July to get into the powersheets!!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      Thanks for joining me for my FB live’s on Wednesdays. I love our time together!

  80. Meghan on August 31, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    I always feel stuck when I go to do my PowerSheets, but I’m always so thankful I did. It’s such a fun book to look through at the end of the year!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      Yes, the hard work is worth it! : )

  81. Audrey on August 31, 2016 at 7:08 pm

    I can’t get the link with the webinar recording to work 🙁 Any tips?

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      Email [email protected] and she will get you all set! : ) The link may have been overloaded with viewers yesterday!

  82. Carley Morse on August 31, 2016 at 7:21 pm

    My biggest goal right now is to get healthy with eating and exercise. It sounds so stereotypical, but that’s where I am.

  83. Sara J Quinnett on August 31, 2016 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you so much for the encouraging session this morning!

  84. Kate on August 31, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    I am so excited for this! The Lara Casey brand is one of my all-time favorites: aesthetically beautiful while remaining functional and relevant to my everyday life. I share it with all my friends! So many great tools to help me keep my priorities in line.

  85. Jen F on August 31, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    Lara,
    Thank you for all that you guve your readers. You are truly inspiring to me and your words each week really lift me up. Going through a little rough time in my life, but you always seem to encourage me even though we have never met in person. I am so happy for your adoption too! My biggest goal right now is to keep trusting God and relying on Him and not myself.

  86. Lorraine aka ClosetDelights on August 31, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    Can’t wait to share all the wisdom from today’s webinar with the Power Ladies on the Community Site. Thanks always Lara for your helpful honesty.

  87. katy on August 31, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Thank you for sharing. I feel so confused in my life it is easier to cozy up to some Netflix or books than dig in and GROW. Here’s hoping a few steps forward will shake of the confusion and bring clarity.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      Here’s to GROWing together! : )

  88. Karen on August 31, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    Thank you so much for another great giveaway! My goal for the future, believe it or not, is to work for someone like you! I am a Graphic Communications Major and would love to get involved in a company like yours that does amazing things while simultaneously sharing the Gospel!

  89. Leia J on August 31, 2016 at 8:50 pm

    I’m a newish mom to a 9-month old and floundering in finding rhythm in setting goals. Thank you for all the encouragement, scripture, truth, and wisdom you share with us!

  90. Kori H on August 31, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    As a new mommy ( well I consider myself still new – little miracle is 8 months ) and recently separated from a very toxic and unhealthy marriage , I find myself so thankful for people like you who openly share the good and bad and truths of life.
    Life has been a big struggle adjusting to motherhood , nursing , getting divorced , dealing with anxiety and depression ,and dealing with my own self esteem issues.
    God has lead me to your site, book, and this webinar. He is moving in me even if it is small steps .
    Thanks for helping me reshape my life

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:55 pm

      Oh Kori, what a hard hard road you’ve had to travel these last months. I’m grateful you are here! Wishing I could hug you…

  91. Rachel R. on August 31, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    My goal this year is to teach my children with gentleness.

  92. Sarah r on August 31, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    My biggest goal is to live more in the present moment with my kids

  93. Sarah R on August 31, 2016 at 9:02 pm

    I texted my friend j to encourage her through many internal doubts she is having lately.

  94. Bonnie on August 31, 2016 at 9:17 pm

    So inspired by your words today! I’ve been a PowerSheets user for 3 years now – starting with the year I was going through my divorce. Your process got me through a very painful year and focused on what I could make happen for me and my 3 kids. Today reminded me that you need to get in the dirt sometimes and I feel like that’s the point I’m at right now. Thank you for being so vulnerable and so very real with us all!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:54 pm

      Hello, friend. I’m so grateful to see you here and that you have been encouraged!

  95. Crystal Clark on August 31, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Thank you for your workshop today! Sitting down with my September Powersheets right now! Some of my goals this month are to read two books, write 4 encouraging notes to friends (and send them!) and to meet with my mentor twice to pray.

  96. Kate R. on August 31, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    My goal is to survive a season of upheaval with grace for myself and my family.

  97. Kim Hawkins on August 31, 2016 at 9:30 pm

    I think this is the single greatest site I’ve found in a long time! I love your weekly Facebook chats and I am in love with the write the word journals

  98. Kim Hawkins on August 31, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    I also decided to text my friend for encouragement on our weight loss journey

  99. Sandee on August 31, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    I’m so excited to enter this great giveaway! For me, Make It Happen was a life-changing (and life-affirming) read. I also got the audio version to hear Lara share her story in her voice. I listen while driving, so I often have to pull over to highlight a passage in my Bible. Thank you for your sharing your insight and experience, Lara!

  100. Amy on August 31, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    I was blessed to be home recovering from surgery Monday, so got to jump on this webinar today — so encouraged! I’m taking this week off to recalibrate my heart, and adjust my expectations to be more in line with what God wants for me. Yay for my first set of powersheets to help me. Thanks everyone for sharing today!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:54 pm

      Prayed for your healing, Amy!

  101. Alisha Ely on August 31, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    I started with the audio version of make it happen and I loved it so much, I purchased multiple hard copies for my friends and myself. I started powersheets this year and can’t wait for 2017!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:53 pm

      That makes me so grateful. I loved doing the audio version of the book!

  102. Alisha Ely on August 31, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    I am motivating friends and family by printing off a favorite old photo of us and mailing it to them with a sweet note of encouragement and praise!

  103. Maria Fernanda on August 31, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    Lara, I absolutely love everything you stand for. Power sheets have helped me focus and hone in on the most important aspects of my life and achieve my goals.

  104. Katie Spencer on August 31, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    thank you for your honesty and help with this webinar!

  105. Jessica Johnson on August 31, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Some of my goals is to not have any more medical problems, to be healthier, to live a happier less stressful life, and to be closer to God!

  106. Anne Ambler Murray on August 31, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    Your webinar was full of so many nuggets! I took 2 pages of notes! Dream like a gardener and digging under the surface as well as planting more than planning spoke to me most! Thank you for your wisdom!

  107. Melissa S. on August 31, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    Love the Power Sheets. Trying to use them and give myself grace. Hope I can get the playback of what you said today.

  108. Bekah Walters on August 31, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    I’m just starting to use the Power Sheets. I ordered them right after I finished reading the Make It Happen book. I want to purchase these just to have on hand to give to other women in my life.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:53 pm

      I’m so glad the book and PowerSheets have helped you, Bekah!!

  109. Angela on August 31, 2016 at 11:38 pm

    thank you for your generosity

  110. Casie on September 1, 2016 at 12:09 am

    I am excited to see the new power sheets!!!

  111. Ellie on September 1, 2016 at 12:57 am

    Today’s webinar (on replay) has really helped me zoom in on September and stop making excuses! My goal is to make a routine of going to the gym two times a week. I am imperfect so I’m going to start with just two times, but I am going to start. This Friday!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:52 pm

      Yay, Ellie! Cheering you on!

  112. Ellie on September 1, 2016 at 1:06 am

    A good friend began an important work chapter today so I reached out to her and shared the link to the webinar and a message of hope for the new chapter she is about to begin. She has so much strength and will do so well in what is to come!

  113. Ashley Frederickson on September 1, 2016 at 1:31 am

    So excited for this giveaway! I saw it on Pinterest and rushed over here. Whenever I need a little live on purpose inspiration, your site is my go-to. I’ve used your site and so many times but haven’t been able to afford all your resources.

  114. Shayna on September 1, 2016 at 3:19 am

    I missed the webinar, but I will be watching it today! I LOVE my Powersheets…and I can’t wait to make it to a MTH conference one day! Thank you for a great giveaway!

  115. Tiari on September 1, 2016 at 5:44 am

    My goal is to become a certified life coach by the end of the year and have a full-time Christ-centered business by next year.

  116. Ann Swindell on September 1, 2016 at 6:43 am

    One of my goals is to keep my hope in the Lord and not in my circumstances. So much is out of my control, but he is good and in control!

  117. Ann Swindell on September 1, 2016 at 6:45 am

    And I sent a text to my friend Rebekah thanking her for her love and care for me this week as I’ve been sick. She’s such an encouragement to me!

  118. Lisa Bosse on September 1, 2016 at 7:12 am

    My goal is to de-clutter my home!

  119. Anna on September 1, 2016 at 7:49 am

    Thank you for keeping all of us encouraged and for constantly reminding us to simply MAKE IT HAPPEN by reminding ourselves of His grace! I’m so grateful for being able to follow you along! 🙂

  120. Lisa E on September 1, 2016 at 8:49 am

    Thanks for sharing your heart and your life- the wonderful and the hard with us all. Thank you for taking risks and letting God use you in others’ lives!

  121. Ali Mackey on September 1, 2016 at 8:57 am

    My goal for this month is to get us moved and settled into our new house!

  122. Hannah Sawyer on September 1, 2016 at 9:07 am

    Started homeschooling for the first time so I’m adding that to my schedule – goal is for my child to enjoy school while learning what he needs as well.

  123. Megan on September 1, 2016 at 9:10 am

    Love this giveaway! So excited to watch the replay of the webinar today while I work 🙂

  124. Tanika Fitzgerald on September 1, 2016 at 9:34 am

    I cannot wait to order mine!

  125. Amanda L on September 1, 2016 at 9:58 am

    Yay, I’m so excited to see the new Power Sheets!

  126. Meredith on September 1, 2016 at 10:11 am

    Love this and loving these webinars 🙂 Also, texted a friend of encouragement!!

  127. Ashley Moon on September 1, 2016 at 10:25 am

    Hi Lara! Dreaming BIG dreams over here with the hopes that I can get my blog and website up and running by the end of September so I can start a freelance calligraphy/design business on the side! Thankful for you and all your lovely work and helpful resources. You are such a gift especially to us entrepreneurs who want to chase their dreams and do big, creative things! Thank you! 🙂

  128. Christina on September 1, 2016 at 10:30 am

    I would be so blessed by this giveaway!

  129. Jennifer Edenfield on September 1, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Love your passion for helping people! Thank you!!!!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      My pleasure! Thank you for being a part of it : )

  130. Siri on September 1, 2016 at 10:40 am

    Oh my gosh what a fun give a way! Goals? As a wedding photographer in the thick of wedding and senior photography season, my goals are to keep growing and learning as I shoot there last few weddings AND to find new ways to look at familiar venues. As a wife…who is in the thick of building a home with her husband…eek!…my goal is to speak his love language so he knows how much a appreciate all his hard work!

  131. Sarah on September 1, 2016 at 10:56 am

    Thank you for sharing this and for all of your constant encouragement across your social media, newsletter and blog posts. I have been believing the lie lately that my job as a SAHM just isn’t important (I KNOW that it is!) and feeling so discouraged and stuck. Looking forward to using these to set concrete goals and move towards a better place.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:48 pm

      Yes, cheering you on, Sarah! I love this quote from Andy Stanley: “Your greatest contribution to the kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise.” : )

  132. Meagan Miller on September 1, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Love this giveaway! My main goal for the rest of the year is to spend less time on my phone. I’d also like to de-clutter some things and spend more time in the Word!

  133. Erin on September 1, 2016 at 11:05 am

    Lara, my husband and I were chatting last night about how I should spend a gift card I got to your shop for my birthday. I was debating between using some for a Write the Word journal or saving it for 2017 Powersheets.
    Without hesitation, he told me to go ahead and buy a journal because “there will be a line in the budget for Powersheets anyway.” He went on to say how there has been a definite change in me and in my attitude toward DOING since I got my Powersheets this year, and he wants to make sure that continues next year.
    All that to say THANK YOU, Lara and Team! Thank you for helping me prioritize things that truly matter.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:44 pm

      This is so great! High fives to your thoughtful husband, and I’m excited for you!

  134. Natalie on September 1, 2016 at 11:26 am

    This is an incredible giveaway! Thank you for your generosity!

  135. Laura Tarsi on September 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm

    Some goals include: drinking more water, exercising 4x/week, being patient, reading, and writing.

  136. Stacey Stephens on September 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm

    Thankful for this idea – how fun to spread encouragement along the way while entering for a chance to win! Thank you for the way you lead and continue to give back!

  137. Nereida Claudio on September 1, 2016 at 12:02 pm

    I would love to win and absolutely love your Powersheets. Can’t wait to see what you’ve changed.

    Blessings!

  138. Kirsten Barber on September 1, 2016 at 12:38 pm

    Loved watching this live. I started my first ever set of Power Sheets in June of this year. They have been awesome and have really helped calm my mind and focus on little by little progress. Focusing on the end result alone is overwhelming. Love this so much!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      So glad to hear that, Kirsten! I’m excited for you!

  139. Laura on September 1, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    One of my goals is to focus on what matters most to me: my walk with Christ and my family. I’m planning to take a class that delves deep into the word of God. And I also want to be more intentional with the time I spend with my husband and son. I think a big part of this is unplugging and being intentional about the quality of the time we spend with each other.

  140. Laura on September 1, 2016 at 1:29 pm

    I just texted and encouraged a dear friend of mine who has been feeling like she doesn’t “measure up” with regards to a God-given talent she has and sharing it with others. Comparison is such a tool of the Enemy and he knows how to use it! I just reminded her that not only does she have a God-given talent, but that I have been challenged to see her hard-work and dedication in honing that talent. In other words, she is amazing and to not let doubt or comparison keep her from remembering that.

  141. Katie on September 1, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Great giveaway, so exciting!

  142. Anna on September 1, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    Yay! So excited for the 2017 Powersheets. Working through these each month is absolutely powerful.

  143. Katie @ A Place to Dwell on September 1, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    I just moved into a brand-new headquarters for work, and the space is amazing! When I saw this giveaway, I thought the items were perfect for this new season in my career! And I would likely share some of them with friends/coworkers, too! 🙂 In fact, my “encourage someone” action was sharing a link to the Lara Casey shop with my coworker. She was admiring some of the LC desk cards I already have hanging up! 🙂

  144. Patricia Ann on September 1, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    One of my biggest goals is to become happier and healthier! For my sake and my families.

  145. Patricia Ann on September 1, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    I also am encouraging my friends who are new moms by sending messages and texts everyday!

  146. Brooke Calcagno on September 1, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    Just started this new month starting my Powersheets for the first time. Super excited with my goals to overcome the fear of failing and being ok with falling down. I just need to get back up and keep trying. Beauty of the life God has given us.

  147. amber on September 1, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    i can’t wait to watch the webinar. you are such a blessing to so many, lara! thank you!

  148. Melissa McElveen on September 1, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    Can’t wait to start planting, instead of planning!

  149. Tabetha on September 1, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    What an inspiration all your work is for me.

  150. Courtney McGarity on September 1, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    This webinar may have seriously changed my life…or at least my outlook on my life currently, which is a pretty huge life change. Thank you for being so candid and honest. I’ll be replaying this webinar often.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      I’m so grateful it was helpful, Courtney!

  151. Allison on September 1, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    I LOVED the fruitful summer campaign, and hope you do one for fall too! It really helped me focus on the season as a whole instead of getting lost in all the tiny details of each day.

  152. Emily cagwin on September 1, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    Just introduced to your products. Never heard of this before!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:58 pm

      Welcome, Emily!

  153. Nicole B on September 1, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    Love!! Thank you so much!

  154. Rachelle on September 1, 2016 at 3:11 pm

    I finished reading Make it Happen and am working through the Powersheets. Baby steps/bites is all I have been able to do right now, I have too many layers!! lol 🙂

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 4:44 pm

      Yay! The little by little will add up. Keep going! : )

  155. Heidi on September 1, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    I loved the webinar today!

  156. Mary Phillips Carlson on September 1, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    I am just watching the webinar replay now and am feeling so inspired to tackle my September goals! Looking forward to 2017 already. Thank you, Lara!

  157. Katie Jardieu on September 1, 2016 at 3:38 pm

    I can’t wait to read the Top 10 guide! I’ve been stuck trying to figure out goals and think more small and tangible.

  158. Cathrin Grape on September 1, 2016 at 3:40 pm

    YAY! So excited about new Powersheets and a giveaway!

  159. Molly on September 1, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    I spread encouragement by being open about my goals and asking friends to share theirs as well! Supporting each other makes you more accountable!

  160. Silvia on September 1, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    I am feeling super blessed for I found this blog and you. You are amazing and very inspiring. I cannot wait to read your book, which I will buy. I hope and pray that I win one or more of the prizes!! Thank you for your hard work and amazing words of inspiration. I consider myself perfectly imperfect too!

  161. Lydia on September 1, 2016 at 4:30 pm

    You inspire me! There’s so much I wouldn’t have even tried to do without your encouragement! My goal is to become even more consistent in setting daily, attainable steps to complete larger projects!

  162. Erin on September 1, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    This giveaway….I have no words! But above all – you have such incredible products that I will alway have in my life winner or not! (can we get a new powersheets countdown widget? he he. no really!)

  163. Erin on September 1, 2016 at 4:45 pm

    Oh my spreading kindness act….I am not the best at gardening but had one leftover plant from spring hanging on…so the other day my little ones and I picked the flowers off and brought to our neighbors (mostly elderly or single women) and just their smile made my day….its good to give!

  164. Patricia on September 1, 2016 at 4:55 pm

    I’ve been on the fence about getting Powersheets, but after going through Make It Happen and another book called Living Forward, I’m convinced that Powersheets is the perfect tool to help me invest in areas that truly matter. I’m tired of drifting and I’m ready to get more clarity and consistency when it comes to goal setting. I can’t waste any more of the precious time that the Lord gives me everyday.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 5:58 pm

      Yay, I’m excited for you, Patricia!

  165. Gloria M. on September 1, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    Bummed that I missed the webinar, but excited about this giveaway!! Thank you Lara for sharing your gifts/talents with us….love all your stuff !

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 5:58 pm

      You can get a free replay at the link to download the e-book in this post! : )

  166. Torie on September 1, 2016 at 5:19 pm

    This looks like another awesome giveaway! So exciting! A few of my goals include reading more books (including Scripture), learning how to make/sell some homemade crafts, and creating a workable, daily routine for my family (I stink at setting and adhering to schedules, but I think I/we function better within them. As a SAHM, this is important!) Thank you for this opportunity to enter!

  167. Torie on September 1, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    Today I was able to text my younger sister to let her know that I have enjoyed spending more time with her lately and that I am glad she is my friend!

  168. Sarah on September 1, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    I love how real and vulnerable you are, Lara. Thank you for sharing your heart. Some of my goals for this year are to manage my time better, cultivate meaningful relationships with others, and encourage others! I was able to encourage some students in my mentor group today so that was a blessing.

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 5:58 pm

      I love your goals, Sarah!

  169. Michelle on September 1, 2016 at 6:26 pm

  175. Ashley on September 1, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    I’m working on my goals now! As of now : homeschool my daughter and enjoy the journey! And loose weight before getting pregnant again to name a couple 🙂

  176. Melinda on September 1, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    I can’t wait to work through this and my goals!

  177. Amy on September 1, 2016 at 10:21 pm

    Thanks for motivation to finish the year strong! So needed this right now.

  178. Lindy on September 1, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    our biggest goal right now is paying off our house. Lots of people think we are crazy but we want to be debt free!!

  179. Lindy on September 1, 2016 at 10:28 pm

    And I texted a friend who is so close to having her first baby!!

  180. Elaine on September 1, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    I would LOVE this! We are in the middle of moving to Turkey… Can it be shipped there? 😉

  186. Abbie on September 2, 2016 at 7:15 am

    I would love to win this. These are the things I need in my life right now!!

  187. Victoria Miller on September 2, 2016 at 8:00 am

    I have been so encouraged by the sheets and also the the write the word journals! Thank you!

  188. nikki perkinson on September 2, 2016 at 8:34 am

    I would love this!! I have just started to read the book and have been so encourage! I also bought the Word Journal and they are just what I need!! Thank you for sharing your heart! <3

  189. Michelle Bills on September 2, 2016 at 9:36 am

    Encouragement: i sent both a card full of bright sticker & washi tape and a quick text messgae to my sweet friend Allison. She is pregnant, but because of the four miscarriages that she had last year, she doesn’t trust. She doesn’t trust Jesus or herself, she’s having a hard time thinking about the baby inside of her because she doesn’t trust that she will be able to hold that sweet baby; and she’s having a lot of anxiety issues because of it. So I have been praying for her every day and trying to do skmething each week to help encourage her.

  190. Glenda on September 2, 2016 at 10:15 am

    Thank you so much for the webinar and guide! Looking forward to keep doing meaningful goals!

  191. Lauren on September 2, 2016 at 10:46 am

    What an awesome giveaway! I would love to use these goals to help achieve my goals! I also encouraged my husband today by sending him a message while at work.

  192. Joanna Hyatt on September 2, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Setting the Top 3 priorities for the day helps me keep on track whiteout feeling completely overwhelmed by a long to do list or defeated because it feels like nothing gets done. Even if that Top 3 includes taking a shower, that’s a win with little kids at home!

  193. Ellie Be on September 2, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    One of my goals is to publish my book!

  194. Liz Links on September 2, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    Thank you Lara!!

  195. Chef Evelyn on September 2, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Lara, this is so generous of you to do. I recently tagged my friend Stephanie B. (of nannytess) on your instagram post about being grateful for nannies and she told me how you generously sent her a set of power sheets. I just think that is super awesome. Whether I win or not, I know someone will be Super Duper blessed by this giveaway. I love my power sheets and I have the Audible version of Make it Happen. Thanks again!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 1:00 pm

      Evelyn!! I am SO grateful for you connecting me with Steph! She has been so generous to us, too! : ) : )

  196. Heidi on September 2, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Thank you for sharing your heart Lara!!!!

  197. Megan on September 2, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Thank you so much – I can’t wait to listen to the webinar!

  198. Jamesie on September 2, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    My main goal – cultivate, nurture & deepen the friendships I have come to treasure this year.

  199. Jamesie on September 2, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Tonight I will be encouraging a friend by taking her out to dinner. She definitely needs some girl time to cheer her soul.

  200. Lauren D. on September 2, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    Love your FB live sessions! So encouraging! for a working mom with 2 babies!

  201. Calee Spinney on September 2, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    I used your PowerSheets as inspiration for a presentation to the students who work for me! A few of us are starting an unaccountably group for the semester–I’m excited to see how it goes and what we accomplish!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 1:00 pm

      This is so awesome!!! Our whole team will be excited to hear that!

  202. Nadine on September 2, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    Some of my current goals are to get in better of control of my finances by making a budget, meeting with a health specialist to set some better steps going forward and also starting to figure out how specific ways to meet with the Lord better within the frameworks of my schedule.

  203. Nancy Veitenhans on September 2, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    My short term goal is to purchase a car to replace the one that was totaled in a car accident two weeks ago. So, good and bad for that!
    My long term goal is to return to school to learn about computer programming and pursue a job change. I think these sheets would be great to remember that goal and help me keep on track. Thanks!! 🙂

  204. Crystal on September 2, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    I am so, so excited!!

  205. Megan Tafolla on September 2, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    I encouraged my friend by letting her know that I hope God’s peace will be with her and His strength. She is going through a lot since her twin brother is in critical condition after a terrible accident.

  206. Brittney R. on September 2, 2016 at 1:05 pm

    Hi, Lara! Thanks so much for doing this giveaway! I texted my best friend to thank her for her support and prayers. Since we attended MTH together, we’ve been doing weekly prayer check-ins and it has been wonderful. My prayers are working for her and her prayers are working for me – such a blessing! 🙂 Thank YOU for being a blessing to all of us as well. Have a great weekend!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      Friend, this is AWESOME!!! I wish I could hug you through my screen!

  207. Lauren Futrell Dunaway on September 2, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    My goal is to hunker down with my powersheets this weekend to finish fall strong. Thank you for your vulnerability and your message of grace over guilt and progress over perfection!!!

  208. Lauren Futrell Dunaway on September 2, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    I encouraged someone today by taking a mama some milk for her baby because she couldn’t pump enough. I feel like I’m in a season with little capacity to give, but she was in distress and this is something that I could. The generosity overwhelmed both of us that she would take it and I would give it and it was such a blessing to our friendship. So step out their friends and do the weird uncomfortable things to bless someone!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:58 pm

      This is SO GREAT. I had four friends bless me in this way for Sarah over the last months, and it was the best gift.

  209. Chloe on September 2, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    Thank you so much for your products and ongoing encouragement! Power Sheets really help me to identify what is important to me, break those things down into manageable steps, and track whether I’ve made progress on those things.

  210. Lisa on September 2, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    Faith! My goal is to get into a bible study and work on cultivating my faith. I’m not sure why faith-related aspects of my life is one of the first to get pushed aside. I want to make it the number one priority in my life.

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      So great, and everything will grow well from that!

  211. Meg on September 2, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    Some of my goals are to find balance between the have-to’s and the want-to-do’s! I have made a fall bucket list that I hope to do together with my family. I hope to really focus on the people that matter in my life, and learn what things I can let go of to make more time for what matters.

  212. Tonya on September 2, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    I’m excited to read the first chapter of your book! I’m planning to spend some of this long weekend at the cabin brainstorming the next steps for my new business and this is just the sort of thing to motivate me!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:55 pm

      Enjoy the cabin! : )

  213. Gwen Hauck on September 2, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    Thank you for giving us the chance to get our hands on these wonderful goodies! I love your generosity 🙂

  214. sarah on September 2, 2016 at 1:19 pm

    such a good giveaway! and the ebook is great too.

  215. Kami on September 2, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    PowerSheets. What can I even say? With human words? I feel like little organized and motivated angels should just line up and sing a chorus. I’ve been a slave to the to do list my entire life and now I feel like I’m doing the things that matter in a way that is wide and open and full of grace. Thank you for being so faithful to share the message you’ve been given because it has changed my one little life!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:45 pm

      Your words make my soul sing!!

  216. Anna Dietrich on September 2, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    What a kind giveaway! Thanks for using the gifts the Lord has given you to help others better accomplish what the Lord has for them!

  217. Kelly on September 2, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    The MTH conference and Powersheets have absolutely changed my life! Before MTH I felt like I was aimlessly wondering. I went to MTH with the intention to further my new business, but what I got was SO much better! I found an intentional LIFE and a whole new outlook on making the best use of my time and energy. I am now living for the things that matter MOST, not just the things that call to me the loudest. Lara and team, I am so thankful for you!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:41 pm

      Yay, Kelly!!!

  218. Madeline on September 2, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    So grateful for your continued influence with these great tools! I loved hearing this morning about how you’ve never checked everything off of your monthly goals–a hard lesson for this Type A gal, but SUCH great encouragement.

  219. Keri on September 2, 2016 at 1:37 pm

    Love this so much! Thank you for your encouragement! Goals are such a passion of mine and I love connecting with other goal setters!

  220. Talyn on September 2, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Love your stuff, and am always inspired by you! Such a great giveaway 🙂

  221. Erin on September 2, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    This is going to be the year of ME. After becoming a mother last year, my whole world has been consumed and feel as though I’ve lost myself a bit. This year I am going to find direction, passion and do something creative. I owe it to myself and my family. I can’t wait to use the power sheet to help me do this. <3

  222. Kathy on September 2, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    This is so awesome, and something I could really use for 2017!! 🙂

  223. Aisha Lawrence on September 2, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    Slow down and create a sense of organization within my family unit. Reevaluate m 9-5 and soar with the God-given talents gifted to me. Become a better wife and mother. Managing my time and finances effectively.

  224. Leigh on September 2, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    Discovered Lara & Powersheets last December. Love how working through the Powersheets each month and checking my tending list daily has made me more and more grateful. God is so good and I so often forget. Thank you, Looking forward to 2017!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:37 pm

      Yay, Leigh!!

  225. Stacey on September 2, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    My goals include stepping up my game on social media and reaching more of my ideal clients! 🙂

  226. Mary L Rice on September 2, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    Goals – Using power sheets to continue to discover new things about myself and how this serves others, family, friends etc. What am I truly passionate about? How to move forward when stuck? Enjoying this adventure. Thanks for sharing your life and encouragement with us.

  227. Abby on September 2, 2016 at 2:08 pm

    So excited about this! I am an obsessive organizer/list-maker and I just found you recently. This stuff makes my little list-making heart so happy! 🙂

  228. Kathy on September 2, 2016 at 2:09 pm

    Can’t wait to look into Make it Happen!

  229. Stacey on September 2, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    My brother and his wife found out the gender of their first child! It’s a girl! I encouraged Ali with prayer and sweet words 🙂

  230. Ashley Scott on September 2, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    Thank you so much for your encouragement! I’ve been feeling stuck lately in my business, but your talk about goals is just the kick in the pants that I need! I’m ready to buckle down and focus on not only what really matters to me and my business, but also what matters to my little family as well.

  231. Jenny Jones on September 2, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    Great Giveaway!! Can’t wait to see the powersheets! Hoping to get my first set!

  232. Dianne on September 2, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    I am the worst at goal-setting (let alone GETTING)! I think how it really works is this: If I never write it down, it’s not really real, and so when it doesn’t happen, I didn’t really fail. I also never share goals with ANYone. When I say all this aloud, I see the fear and ridiculousness of it. I’m very good at planning and then never launching, doing the work, or completing. Sigh. I love what you share and it is so encouraging. I just so need to keep at it and see SOMETHING through to completion. I think Power Sheets could be a big help. I guess we’ll find out. 🙂

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:36 pm

      Not ridiculous at all! I’m excited for you : )

  233. Amber on September 2, 2016 at 2:16 pm

    I am still focusing on my goal of being intentional with my prayers and my time!

  234. Shanna on September 2, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    A better home management plan and actually implementing it. 😉 Teaching my girl to read. Loving my family, our church staff, my small group well and in tangible ways. And saying NO to good things in order to say YES to the best things for this season.

  235. Jessica Alonso on September 2, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    You inspire me more and more every time I watch you speak. Hoping to attend MTH again soon!! Xoxo.

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:46 pm

      I would love to see you again!!

  236. Priscila on September 2, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    I’ve worked through your goal setting blog posts for a couple of years now. I’d love to work through the power sheets. Your goal setting question have LITERALLY changed some major things in my life.

  237. Emily on September 2, 2016 at 2:26 pm

    Looks amazing!!!!

  238. Amber on September 2, 2016 at 2:35 pm

    I loved the Grace-filled Goals webinar. I was in tears for half of it. Thanks for you honesty and passion! Can’t wait to get my PowerSheet and planner for the rest of 2016!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      I’m so grateful it encouraged you, Amber!!

  239. Abi on September 2, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    Loved the webinar, love you, can’t wait to hug you in October!

    My main goal is to actually take action on my goals. Haha! I so relate to what you were saying about actually planting instead of just planning. There are several things that I’ve known I’m supposed to do for awhile now, and so I’m going to just do them! I have been making progress little by little on these things, and I think corralling my thoughts into action steps is the next step to actually doing these things well.

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      Yay, can’t wait to hug you!

  240. Jessica on September 2, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    I just love Powersheets and how they enable me to focus on what matters and the tangible action steps it takes to get there!

  241. KelseyDiane on September 2, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    So excited for this! Love this and all of these products!!

  242. Shiree Shaffer on September 2, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    What a great getaway. I will on your products.

  243. Mandy S. on September 2, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    Lara, all I can say is that you and your team have helped me and my business immensely this year. I look forward to every one of your broadcasts and truly appreciate the work that you all put into helping others. Much love to you all!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 2:54 pm

      I am grateful to hear that! Love from all of us!

  244. Ann on September 2, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    I’m enjoying learning about you and your products. I first saw your pages on Day Designer’s Instagram feed and Googled it–and there you were!

  245. Geales on September 2, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    Thank you for your inspiration, Lara! I love hearing how God has used you, your marriage, and your business to make such a huge impact.

  246. Amanda on September 2, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Thank you for another fabulous and generous giveaway! 🙂

  247. Fiona on September 2, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    Thanks for your encouraging words Lara. I was able to see you in person at Americas Mart and you were just as encouraging as you are now.

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 4:48 pm

      I loved speaking at AM! Great to see you here!

  248. Sandra Dawson on September 2, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    i love reading your blog posts especially about your family. but for some reason i find it difficult to put pen to paper when it comes to goal setting. I realised im afraid to make mistakes to make the page look ugly. So this is my first goal to learn that ” done is better than perfect..”

  249. Amanda Hays on September 2, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    I’m loving your weekly fb live sessions! I can’t wait to dive into the power sheets.

  250. Aryn on September 2, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    My goal is to send two books to my agent this year! I’m very close to making this happen.

  251. Greer Rivera on September 2, 2016 at 4:31 pm

    To get my business established in my new location and get back to work after having my baby!

  252. Becca on September 2, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    One of my goals this month is to keep up with (short!) daily emails to parts of our family that live far away!

  253. Bridget on September 2, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    I’ve been feeling stuck on my Powersheets prep and new goals for the 2nd half of the year – very much looking forward to watching some of your videos to get re-inspired!

    • Lara on September 2, 2016 at 4:48 pm

      Yay! And check out my Instagram stories from today – I gave a few tips there too : )

  254. Mirely M. on September 2, 2016 at 5:07 pm

    Love this giveaway! The gift of organization keeps on giving… giving you more time, less stress, more peace of mind… <3

  255. Kate kinsley on September 2, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    Thanks for all the colorful stuff you do! My goal for this upcoming year is make a conscious choice to start each day on a positive note! Looking forward to creative ways to do this and I’m thinking maybe power sheets are my way!

  256. Sarah H on September 2, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    My current goals include getting more organized and starting a workout plan. 🙂

  257. Monty Stepura on September 2, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    Lara I am so encouraged by everything you do. The Power Sheets, Write the Word. Your beautiful backgrounds for my computer and phone, your inspirational blog posts and quotes. They are all gifts that I can’t wait to leverage!! We actually have a lot in common. We’re adoptive moms, who love the Lord and live in the Triangle. I’d love to meet you in person sometime. I am the head of Coaching & Assessment for my firm and work with so many people who will be blessed by what I am learning from you. God Bless!!

  258. Amanda Turnbo on September 2, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    Totally feel like I’m at the beginning of a whole new chapter in life & I have been soaking up all of your encouragement lately!! Thank for being so open and honest and encouraging❤️ Can’t wait to get the new power sheets!!

  259. Ashley on September 2, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    I love this!!! I would love to have Powersheets–as a grad student, all my money comes from loans so winning them would be amazing! I want to focus on doing what matters and carving out time for the people and things I love even in the midst of physical therapy school! It is definitely a struggle, but I know God is with me the whole way… Love the encouragement from you and ladies alike that have busy, fulfilling careers, but richer lives with Jesus!

  260. Casey on September 2, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    I’m definitely looking to reach some lofty goals. Thank you for having the giveaway. Whoever wins will certainly be helped and inspired!

  261. Rachel on September 2, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    Loved watching this! Such a blessing! I’m a planner and goal setting addict so this really inspired me! I haven’t tried power sheets yet but they sound like exactly what I need! Can’t wait!

  262. Adelaide on September 2, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Hi Lara and your fabulous team! I’m really grateful for reading your book and being encouraged by the way you cultivate faith in daily life, it’s something I’ve struggled to fit in with ‘modern life’ and now I’ve been able to step back and be more intentional each day, which makes me feel more whole. Much love to powersheets!! These too have made an amazing impact and helped me choose purpose and in turn more happiness, I’m truly grateful for these and am looking forward to planting and tending all the things I love in 2017.

  263. Jenn on September 2, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    My goal is to write my first book ever. I’ve never been published, I don’t have blog (though I’ve had a few in the past) and don’t really have a platform. BUT God has placed it on my heart. It’s always been a back burner dream. I just need to be obedient. Here goes!

  264. Jenna on September 2, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    I’ve been making headway lately with small goals like planning my daily meals, seems silly I know, but it’s been such a help. im ready to keep moving forward and making headway, like continuing to work to cultivate friendships, both near and far.

  265. Kellie B on September 2, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    A goal of mine is to develop a routine to keep any stress or feelings of being overwhelmed at bay. I’m a teacher and this is the first full year of also having two kids, plus I have a blog. I’d love to find a way to get my work done efficiently and maximize family time!

  266. Karen on September 2, 2016 at 9:20 pm

    Love the goal setting! Refreshing and motivating,taking the next step

  267. Pat on September 2, 2016 at 9:52 pm

    2017 is definitely a year of change for me! One goal is a huge financial goal we have been working towards for several years. Less than a year away from accomplishing it now!

  268. Jennifer on September 2, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    I bought my powersheets in December, to start in January. A close family member fell ill, and life threw us for a loop. This video has inspired me to start NOW.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:59 am

      Awesome! I’m excited for you! There’s nothing magical about January 1 : )

  269. Alyssa Birchfield on September 2, 2016 at 10:18 pm

    I’m putting the finishing touches on my website – my short term goal right now is to get this baby launched!

  270. Heather on September 2, 2016 at 10:25 pm

    Using my Power Sheets for the first time right now – just finished my first month! I hope it helps me keep track of my “little” goals (read every day) as well as my “big” ones (pay off student loans)!

  271. Emily on September 2, 2016 at 11:02 pm

    LOVE this! Thanks for always being so encouraging!

  272. Emmylou on September 2, 2016 at 11:48 pm

    Hi Lara,
    I have been meaning to purchase your Power Sheets but due to shipping cost, I chose not to buy it in 2016, save some more so I can buy it in 2017. My goal is to give myself some white space for the remaining 4 months in 2016. Due to demands from work and projects, I’ve found myself consistently sick with very little room to rest and be present. So for now, creating a white space in my schedule is on top of my goal.

  273. Emmylou on September 2, 2016 at 11:48 pm

  274. Chartiy on September 3, 2016 at 12:18 am

    I am in such a season of…
    *jump* into the unknown, the possible, the impossible and am finding your words encouraging and rescuing.
    Many of my cohorts admire your years of work…yet you are still just a mom who is working out nursing schedules and embracing your natural curls.
    Thank you, will never be enough.

  275. Ruth on September 3, 2016 at 12:53 am

    I am loving these Powersheets

  276. Naomi on September 3, 2016 at 1:13 am

    I can tell you have the gift of encouragement and being a cheerleader for others. Thank you so much for who you are,

  277. Kara-Anne Cheng on September 3, 2016 at 1:15 am

    Every year when I get a little lost, I come back to Lara Casey. And your blog posts are always, always a connection back to my faith. Thank you.

    I listened to the webinar again last night, with my Powersheets in tow this time, which I haven’t touched since I bought them December 2014. I started having fun + making a mess with them, and I’m getting MUCH further. Can’t wait to set my September goals.

    Thank you for telling me to own my “frizzy hair.” For me, that’s my outspokenness when it comes to local injustices and I’ve always put myself down for having a “big mouth,” not being able to keep my mouth shut when I see something awful happening.

    And that it is okay to be vulnerable and to grow slow and messily.

    Thank you!

  278. Naomi on September 3, 2016 at 1:16 am

    I thanked a friend for having dinner with me and having the opportunity to hear about her life.

  279. Anna on September 3, 2016 at 6:40 am

    Hi Lara, I love your blog. My main goal this year was to make sure to have some meaningful time with God everyday even if it’s just short and by now that actually works most of the days. My goal for the end of the year is to prepare the holiday season long term and then hopefully be less stressed. 🙂

  280. Jana on September 3, 2016 at 7:08 am

    Power Sheets are the best tool I’ve found for working through my goals! I really enjoy filling out the sheets and getting clear on what really matters and how I can “make it happen”! (Tried to post this yesterday, but kept getting an error message)

  281. Piano lover on September 3, 2016 at 7:48 am

    My goals right now are simple, but not easy.
    1. To grow deeper with my relationship with God
    2. To make my prayer life better
    3. To live one day at a time. I am 19 and have cancer. But I need to trust God with my plans.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:58 am

      I’m praying for you now. You are strong, my friend. God is with you.

  282. Rebecca gross on September 3, 2016 at 8:36 am

    Just working on my refresh this morning & excited to dig into your recent blog posts & Facebook lives! Thank you so much for allowing God to use you as a tool & for your heart & generosity!!

  283. Lauren on September 3, 2016 at 8:37 am

    Hi Lara,

    I have the 6month Power Sheets, but have yet to start them. I need to schedule time in my day/week for the Power Sheets. Thank you for the webinars! I only was able to watch one but hope I can find links to watch the others as they are so good!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:58 am

      Yay, I’m excited for you to dig in. Remember, just dig in and make a mess!

  284. Rebecca gross on September 3, 2016 at 8:41 am

    I loved your comment about “leaning into your season”. Seasons prepare & teach us for what is next & help us grow – loved that & shared it with a good friend of mine who is in a new season preparing for marriage!

  285. Hannah on September 3, 2016 at 8:59 am

    Yay! Thanks so much for all you do, Lara (& team!)! My main goal for this year is to be faithful in the small things. Sounds like a small goal, but it’s had a big impact on now I live life every day.

  286. Camryn Glackin on September 3, 2016 at 10:48 am

    Just got married, moved to a new state, starting a new job, all of the new things! So my goal is to figure out what this new life looks for us, walking in purpose and being open to whatever calling the Lord places on me through this.
    Xoxo

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:58 am

      Congrats on your marriage! : )

  287. Toria on September 3, 2016 at 11:29 am

    Some of my goals…publishing a book and working towards building a girls’ retreat space, a place where young women can be refreshed in Christ’s love!

  288. Lauren on September 3, 2016 at 11:30 am

    My goal is to start a personal blog,struggling to come up with a name at the moment.

  289. Toria on September 3, 2016 at 11:31 am

    Texted a friend to check up on her and congratulate her on passing an important test! Cue the confetti cannons!

  290. Lauren on September 3, 2016 at 11:33 am

    I text my friend who actually encouraged me to start a blog recently. She’s been traveling lots this summer and we had not been able to keep in touch much.

  291. Natalie G on September 3, 2016 at 1:22 pm

    My goal is to be more consistent with quiet time and ” being present” time with my kids.

  292. Bekah on September 3, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    I’ve simplified my goals for this fall. One, I want to grow in my affections for Jesus- by memorizing scripture, reading daily, and prayer journaling.

  293. Amber on September 3, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    One of my goals is to deepen my relationship with the Lord and another of my goals is to write more

  294. Amber on September 3, 2016 at 4:03 pm

    Instead of saying I’m praying for you and possibly forgetting to I hand wrote notes with prayers inside to close friends

  295. Brittany on September 3, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    Thank you so much, Lara, for the encouragement that you provide to all of us! I am working on my September Powersheets during this much needed Labor Day weekend!

  296. Amy on September 3, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    This would make my week… On 8/29/16, I was in a wreck causing the following issues…A Concussion, Shattered Wrist, Breaking Arm & My Pinky; surgery is my next step….which i have already had 3 scoliosis surgeries(my first at age 14 & now im only 30

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:57 am

      Wow, Amy, you have had such a hard few weeks. I’m praying for you now!

  297. Heather on September 3, 2016 at 7:44 pm

    So thankful to have stumbled upon your beautiful products last year. It has made such a huge difference in my daily productivity. Thank you thank you!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:57 am

      Yay, Heather!!

  298. Sheila on September 3, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    I’m making things happen by encouraging my teenagers to be themselves, not compromise and LOVE themselves. Thank you for Powersheets & that writing those things down makes a difference

  299. Heather on September 3, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    I would love to use these!!!

  300. ConnieKayA on September 3, 2016 at 10:43 pm

    Make it Happen was the book that started me o the journey to finding the life of my dreams. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and your tools with us.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:57 am

      I’m really grateful to hear that!

  301. Rachel Hendricks on September 3, 2016 at 11:38 pm

    I resigned from my reaching job and my husband graduated from seminary this past spring. We are now moving overseas where he has a life changing dream job – pastoring an English speaking church in PARIS.I will be discovering worth and meaning as “stay at home wife.” (No kiddos in the near future). I LOVE my husband, love serving him, and am excited about partnering with him in this ministry.I also have this incredible opportunity to explore new career options in one of the most incredible cities in the world. Yet I am paralyzed with this fear of the unknown, fear of failing, fear of wasting all the time, but most of all – fear of searching for a meaningful career that I’m passionate about and finding nothing… I’ve read Make it Happen and loved it. Hoping the Powersheets will give me some direction for this new scary, but exciting stage of life.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:57 am

      Wow, what an adventure God is taking you on! I’m excited for your journey!

  302. Caroline B on September 4, 2016 at 1:58 am

    I’ve used the PowerSheets this year.Not every month, but I started out good, and then lacked time and commitment. Started again, and off it went. Progress… Anyways… One of my goals was to land a new position/job, and I just did!! Don’t care if it was the PS or not!! 🙂
    I have a close friend with the similar desires. We talked through her goals, and plans, and I asked a lot of questions to make her think. I would just love to be able to support her more in her process and let her use PS too.

    Yes, I know that I live in Sweden, but either I’ll pay for the postage or if you can send it to another friend of mine in NYC. 🙂 I can’t let geography get in the way here!!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:56 am

      Love your heart, Caroline. Yes, this is the joy of leaning into imperfect progress—it’s still progress! You are doing a great job!

  303. Karina Ratto on September 4, 2016 at 10:15 am

    Just finished reading your Make it Happen book and loved it! So much wisdom and encourgement. I have so much work to do but it’s great to find wonderful sources like yours to know we are not alone in the journey.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:55 am

      I’m so grateful my imperfect story encouraged you! : )

  304. Ann on September 4, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    I love visiting this blog. I find your message so encouraging and powerful. Thank you for sharing your love and words.

  305. AnnYager on September 4, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    2 times at MTH and I’ve finally found my voice in my powersheets thanks to my new accountability partner-I thank you Lara because I didn’t know how badly I needed it. I was searching and found myself at MTH, my new goals have been to live intentionally everyday with my husband, family, and friends and in my faith. Some days are a struggle, but the grace of being intentional brings me back around. Thank you! a million times thank you!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:55 am

      I love you, friend! Grateful for you!!

  306. Georgeanne @ Southern Fried Soprano on September 4, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    You’re inspiring me to make small steps in setting goals… just little by little! Progress, not perfection.

  307. Michelle on September 4, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    While working on my Powersheets, I realized that I am usually the “encourager” in my circles, which is a role I love and cherish. It is also so nice to BE encouraged. We all need those people around us that do that, although, of course, my ultimate encourager is Christ. Thanks for helping to fill my vessel, Lara!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:54 am

      SO great!

  308. webly on September 4, 2016 at 4:29 pm

    Started the powersheets in August of this year but hey who cares that’s my January. It is very refreshing. I look forward to getting a new one in 2017 with the workbook and start it in February.
    The messages are very encouraging.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:53 am

      YESSSS! There is nothing magical about January 1! : )

  309. Mary on September 4, 2016 at 4:55 pm

    I found out about Powersheets after you were sold out and I’m excited to get the chance to try them for next year. 2015 had a lot of loss, 2016 has been better, and I’m ready to hit the ground running in 2017 (I have a fall birthday and start my new year’s planning early!). Thanks for all you do!

  310. Mary on September 4, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    I’m working this holiday weekend at the hospital. I brought in treats this morning to remind my team we’re all in this together and I am so grateful for a great group of nurses to work with!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:53 am

      So awesome! What a great co-worker you are!!

  311. Mary R on September 4, 2016 at 5:17 pm

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. I discovered your blog and power sheets earlier the year. I am also reading your book. Your willingness to share things from your life helps others to know that others do struggle even though they seem to have it all together on the outside. You are very giving and inspiring.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:53 am

      Glory to God, I’m so grateful you’ve been encouraged, Mary!

  312. Candes on September 4, 2016 at 6:28 pm

    I am so glad I stumbled upon your website !

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:52 am

      Welcome! : )

  313. Michelle Bills on September 4, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    One of my big goals for this fall is to go through our home room by room and get rid of the clutter… Give away clothes that don’t fit or we just don’t wear, get the toys down to a more manageable level, go througb all of the paper work and artwork. Declutter and simplify, thereby makeing it easier for me to breath. It’s gotten really out of hand in the last year.

  314. Harley on September 4, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    Good day, Lara!

    I’m a huge fan of your blog and your powersheets (been using them for 2016 and they are the best!) Thank you so much for being so generous! 🙂

    I have some pretty crazy goals and I’m not 100% sure I’m supposed to achieve them at this point, but they are there.

    1. Stay on top of school work! Don’t get behind and do your best to get ahead!
    2. Continue organizing my home (My living room is half boxes from my office right now while I try and figure out how to put my office back together!)
    3. Take better care of myself: go to bed around 10p and up by 6a every day, eat better – more home cooked meals, and try to fit in some yoga/light exercise a few times a week!
    4. Spend quality time with my daughter every day I have her (I take night classes, so I rarely see her right now) – at least 15-30 minutes of *uninterrupted* and *non-distracted* time together.
    5. Make my blog PUBLIC on my birthday (Oct. 4) – This is the most challenging and terrifying things ever! I’m not sure I have time (look at you grad school!) and I seem to become stumped every time I set some time aside to write a post. We’ll see what happens! 🙂 (IF only it was open now, I could write a post for the giveaway! Lol.)

    Good luck to everyone who enters! 🙂

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:52 am

      Harley, this is AWESOME! So encouraged by you and here’s to October 4th!! : )

  315. Amanda on September 5, 2016 at 10:32 am

    WOW! what a great webinar. The two things that really stood out to me was little by little change- the slow cooking metaphor, and the other big thing was along the lines of using preparation as a way to hide and put things off in fear (the actual line you quoted was much more elegant but can’t find it a the moment!) 2016 has been rough for me, but I have three big goals to finish out the year:
    1. More consistent quiet time with God
    2. Make room in our house for our second child due in January
    3. Begin selling some of the crafts I’ve been working on that I have been too scared to share/put out there.
    Thanks for the push to start <3

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:51 am

      Congrats on your upcoming little one! And consider this your push to get those crafts out into the world – go for it!! : )

  316. Amanda on September 5, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Speaking of little by little- I encouraged my friend in the last weeks of her pregnancy today who is very nervous about the upcoming transition to motherhood. I told her how she’d learn a little ever day and before she knew it she’d be the one helping another friend through the transition, but that there’s never attainable perfection and that’s ok! I’m definitely still learning both about parenting and about how to let go of the perfection illusion!

  317. Kendyll on September 5, 2016 at 12:11 pm

    Loved this webinar. Ready to live on purpose, pray BIG and take action. Thanks for sharing your wisdom, Lara!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:50 am

      I’m so glad you loved it, Kendyll!

  318. Sarah on September 5, 2016 at 1:22 pm

    Moving forward on some goals for establishing some new traditions around our holiday celebrations that help us fix our eyes on Jesus.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:50 am

      Love it – I also have this on my mind. I want to be really intentional about our holidays!

  319. Kala on September 5, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  320. Holly Fisher on September 5, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    Thank you! Hope I win!

  321. Marci on September 5, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    Excited about this giveaway- thank you! In working through PowerSheets the past year and a half, I have been inspired to go back to school for my esthetician license and now work part time doing facials in addition to photography. I have been so busy in 2016 that I have not had a moment to think ahead, but will look forward to planning with the 2017 PowerSheets set!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 9:49 am

      Wonderful, Marci! I’m excited for you!

  322. Danielle Roberts on September 5, 2016 at 11:25 pm

    My heart is being worked on slowly and powerfully. Thanks for sharing your heart. It’s so great to learn from you!

  323. Cara Reehoff on September 6, 2016 at 10:25 am

    Love the idea of this!!

  324. Kadie on September 6, 2016 at 11:25 am

    This is so fun! So excited for whoever wins this lovely giveaway. Thanks so much for creating such an awesome goal setting tool! It’s awesome seeing my progress in such a tangible way.

  325. Ashley Hosang on September 6, 2016 at 11:25 am

    Cannot wait for the 2017 PowerSheets to launch!!!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 11:38 am

      Yay, we are so excited too!

  326. Jessica on September 6, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Powersheets have helped me so much this year! One of my goals was to spend less wasteful time watching TV/messing around on my phone. I have totally made progress!!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 11:38 am

      YESSSS!!!! I am high-fiving you through the screen, Jessica!

  327. Melissa Shafer on September 6, 2016 at 11:30 am

    Thank you for your time in investing in us!

  328. nikki on September 6, 2016 at 11:33 am

    Love love this!!

  329. Danielle Hoke on September 6, 2016 at 11:34 am

    My current goals: Spend 10 minutes a day(preferably during the kids nap time) to read something faith-based.
    make it out to the gym 3x a week
    Research and take the first steps to open a gym with my husband.
    In all honesty, that last one is super intimidating to me and out of my comfort zone but with faith and tiny action steps, this gym could come to live and be an awesome area to serve others and share Christ’s love.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 11:37 am

      Wow, that is exciting, Danielle! I wish you would come open one in my neighborhood. We need one! : )

  330. Sheree on September 6, 2016 at 11:34 am

    Such an amazing giveaway! Thank you!!
    A few of my goals are :
    1. Spend more quality time with Jesus
    2. Workout at least 3x per week
    3. Plan ahead and blog at least twice a week
    Here’s to a more fruitful year!! 🙂

  331. Callie Branch on September 6, 2016 at 11:36 am

    Hi! I’m somewhat new here. Just started your book and am praying I can make some changes in my life. Thanks for the give-away! I encouraged a friend too! 😉

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 11:37 am

      Hi, Callie! Welcome! : )

  332. Kim on September 6, 2016 at 11:38 am

    It encourages me so much to read your posts Lara! Thank you for speaking openly about your faith and for being an encouragement to women everywhere! This school year, my goal is to be intentional in building relationships.

  333. Liz Miles on September 6, 2016 at 11:50 am

    This giveaway is so exciting and generous!

    My current goals include:
    – grow my nonprofit financially so that we can make a deposit on a piece of land in Uganda
    – carve out time daily to read my Bible
    – learn to give myself grace for failures and imperfections

    Thanks again, Lara! 🙂

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 2:20 pm

      Love all of your goals, Liz!

  334. Kim on September 6, 2016 at 11:58 am

  335. Suellen Rivera on September 6, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Thank you for your free etnias, they are so helpful to me with family time, God time, and goals.

  336. Becky Watson on September 6, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Just beginning my journey to becoming my own boss and could use a little help!

  337. molly on September 6, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    I am launching a new social media consulting business for creatives, small business owners and bloggers and I would love to use the PowerSheets to help me make do-able goals and stay on track.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 2:20 pm

      Exciting!!

  338. mariana on September 6, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    Lara, you’ve inspired me over the years and I can’t thank you enough for your timely words of wisdom and encouragement. My current goals include taking a mission trip with the family, staying consistent with my exercise and health plan, and completing my website refresh before the end of the year.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 2:20 pm

      Such wonderful goals, my friend. I am inspired by you!

  339. Courtney Lindsey on September 6, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    Thank you for an amazing giveaway opportunity!! Some of my goals: 1) More quiet time with God – including bible study, prayer and journaling. 2) Give all of my worries and anxiety to God – this is something I really struggle with lately and I know HE is the only one who can help me with it! 3) Get more exercise – even if it’s just walking 30 minutes a day! 4) Order the new Power Sheets and actually USE them this time! Start to finish!!

  340. Courtney Lindsey on September 6, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    Also – for my “encourage someone” entry – I sent an e-card to a sweet friend (A) because it’s her birthday and (B) because we have not spent time together lately and I wanted her to know she is special and loved today and every day!

  341. Katie on September 6, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    Such am amazing giveaway!! Some of my goals right now are:
    1) Find a new job that I love and look forward to each day
    2) Continue my healthy living journey (daily workouts, making healthy choices, encouraging others)
    3) Plan a fun weekend getaway for October

  342. Cheryl on September 6, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    I’m so very grateful that it’s never to late to Make It Happen!!!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 2:19 pm

      So true! Today is the best day to begin!

  343. Laura Jasmine on September 6, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    Love love love the PowerSheets and am excited about this giveaway! I had a bunch of goals this year…a couple of major ones were to make a career change (already done thanks to PowerSheets!), connect within my church community, and meet some financial/giving milestones. I had 11 major goals in all (aka A LOT), but the PowerSheets helped me break them down and feel confident about my ability to complete them.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 2:19 pm

      I’m so glad to hear that, Laura!!!

  344. Kayleigh Falcon on September 6, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    You have me all excited now about this giveaway! I love how inspiring you are! I’m about halfway through Making It Happen and have been doing a lot of thinking along the way.

  345. april payne on September 6, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    you know the feeling when you don’t even know where to get help in a certain area, but then you see things that could help you and you can’t even contain the excitement? THAT THIS ALL OF THIS. Thanks for compiling this list! And for the giveaway!

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 5:00 pm

      Haha! Love it!!

  346. Kelsey Rhodes on September 6, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    I’m looking forward to the 2017 powersheets. I have found myself as a stay-at-home mom after moving due to a change of duty station for my military husband. In 2017 my goal is to start my own finance consulting business. It’s challenging making time to work on my business plan with a 1 year old but getting organized is the first step!

  347. Elizabeth on September 6, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    A shorter-term goal would be to be diligent while juggling college & work and brighten the days/shine the light of Jesus to those around me. A longer-term goal would be to continue to be more involved in the fight against human trafficking. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!!

  348. Kristin on September 6, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    I’m loving my 6 month PowerSheets! I’ve read more books and feel like I’m more connected in the last 3 months with family and friends thru my intentional tending lists and “planned” fun events than I have in a long time! I love them so much I bought 3 sets to give to friends and family members so they can start taking action on their goals too.

    • Lara on September 6, 2016 at 4:59 pm

      That is so wonderful!!

  349. Sarah on September 6, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    I’ve been the stop-start-stop-start kind of gal when it comes to my Power Sheets but I am thankful for grace and the opportunity to continue seeking God’s will and taking the next step no matter how big or small!

  350. Elise on September 6, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    One of my goals is to release my first modern quilt patterns!

  351. Elise on September 6, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    I sent a text to my friend to encourage her!

  352. Alyssa O'Brien on September 6, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    Lara and her message are a huge inspiration to me. I feel like I’ve spent my whole life chasing perfection and never felt like I’ve there. Im 26 years old, was born with cerebral palsy and walk with a walker. My life was pretty normal besides so pretty serious bullying as a teen. When I started at a new school and was out of that situation I did everything I could and more to thrive and show people I was more than my disability and could far surpass anyone’s expectations. Fast forward to my first year of uni..moved far away from home, scholarships, job opportunities …everything I ever wanted until I got really sick. 6 weeks of hospital sick, so sick that I had to leave school, move back home, give up my scholarships. It took four years to get a diagnosis of severe gastroparesis. Now at 26 I’m trying to find the right treatment so I can get back my life. Its definitely been a struggle but out of it came the best thing that ever happened to me, Jill Conley. A viral video was made about her journey with terminal breast can and her message that beauty comes from within and can’t be erased. I was so inspired I decide to go to kentucky, where she lived and was holding her foundation Jill’s first 5k and complete the 5k for her. We became best friends for the next two years until she passed this past february.

    August 20th I completed my second 5k for her with only my walker. It was really hard considering my disability but more so my illness. It leaves me fatigued and nauseous so the extreme exertion was hard but it felt amazing to know that maybe seeing me and hearing my story could change someone else’s life. Imagine if I could save one person from the feeling of wanting to give up or not feeling enough? My life would be made.

    My dream, what I believe is my purpose and my greatest goal is to change someone’s life through my story and my experience. I want to give to someone hope, faith and love. I would love to work for a non profit and eventually start my own to help victims of bullying and/or young adults dealing with chronic illness. Its hard being in your prime and watching all your friends getting degrees, great jobs, falling in love, getting married, building lives while your on the sideline wanting the same. I want to support others. Another big goal for me is to travel on a humanitarian trip to an impoverished country and I would love to someday adopt.
    At this point I just need guidance to help me get to where I want to be because sometimes I’m not sure where to begin. I need a plan of actions so I can reach all my goals and maybe surpass them.
    Good luck everyone!!! I hope you reach all your goals and more 🙂

      Well, consider life made, because I am your one person right now! Wow, Alyssa! Wow wow wow. You have deeply inspired me in sharing your story of strength, perseverance, and passion. Will you pass us your mailing address? I’d love to send you something – email [email protected] : )

  353. Jennifer on September 6, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    I love your stuff Lara and love that you are doing a giveaway. What fun!

  354. Erin on September 6, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Love this! My goal – for tomorrow, for this week, from now on – is to be present in this life that God has given me. Social media and my iPhone steal far too many moments from me!

  355. Caitlyn on September 6, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    So generous!

  356. Charlene on September 6, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    My goals include running a half marathon, eliminating my credit card debt by Jan 2017 and completing a discipleship program by the end of next year.

  357. Sara S. on September 6, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    One of my goals is to set up a relaxed routine each day that will help us have a better flow to our days. Being a homeschool mom makes it necessary!

  358. Gicel on September 7, 2016 at 12:41 am

    I just recently started using your power sheets and they are SO helpful!! This is my first week and I am ON track! From small things like fixing my bed in the morning to bigger things like being intentional about reading! Excited to start using them with my team!!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:36 pm

      Awesome, Gicel!!

  359. Jacqueline Reese on September 7, 2016 at 8:51 am

    I was recommended by a friend to explore Powersheets about six months ago and I have been hooked ever since. As a college student about to graduate there is much change going on in my life! I feel like the Lord has truly used a combination of Powersheets, Lara Casey’s encouragement and her book to remind me how important a purpose filled life is.

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:35 pm

      That is awesome, Jacqueline! And congrats on your upcoming graduation!!

  360. Britney on September 7, 2016 at 10:51 am

    I’ve been following along now for years but have never reached out or commented before, mostly because I haven’t felt that I had value to add. But with the book and PowerSheets and journals I’ve been working hard to step up and speak up. That’s the major gift that you all have given me – the belief that I can have a place in the world to be me and to make huge things happen. So thank you! Sending so much love your way! ❤️

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:35 pm

      Girl, I’m in tears reading your words. God is so good! I’m so grateful you shared your thoughts and that you’ve been encouraged! : ) Keep going, friend.

  361. Samantha Cordialini on September 7, 2016 at 11:02 am

    Some of goals include digging deeper into the Word, starting a blog, intentionally loving on those around me and graduating college!

    • Samantha Cordialini on September 7, 2016 at 11:03 am

      oops! Some of *my goals. 🙂

  362. Gwen on September 7, 2016 at 11:25 am

    I just found your website, as I search for a great planner. My new BIG goal is homeschooling both of my children!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:34 pm

      We share that goal! : ) I’m hoping to start with Grace for Kindergarten next year.

  363. shannon on September 7, 2016 at 11:31 am

    What an amazing giveaway!

  364. Jennifer Casey on September 7, 2016 at 11:33 am

    My biggest goal is to start focusing on my health more! I am out of shape and heavier than ever and it’s time I do this for my boys!

  365. Kelsey Starks on September 7, 2016 at 11:41 am

    Such a fun giveaway! Thanks for always sharing so honestly – your transparency is so encouraging!

  366. Gwen on September 7, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Texted a friend who had a speaking engagement at work and was a little nervous. Phil 4:7

  367. Rachel on September 7, 2016 at 11:55 am

    Would love POWERSHEETS to manage my goals and dreams while adding more kids to my family. I feel like the more kids, the less focused I am. Would love to take time each month to set my intentions!

  368. Kelly Roy on September 7, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    I cannot WAIT for the new Powersheets!!! I got my first set in July of this year and am using them for these last months of the year – WOW what a game changer these are!! Absolutely love them – they are so much more than just monthly to-do lists. They have made me become more introspective, more focused, and more committed to MAKING WHAT MATTERS HAPPEN! 😉 Thanks Lara + team!!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:34 pm

      YAY, Kelly!!!!

  369. Maria on September 7, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    I am so grateful that I came across these Power Sheets 3 months ago! Yesterday I had a rough day and my mother mailed me a not so nice letter. For the first time EVER I ignored the dishes, and dinner that had to be made, basically just the mess that was my kitchen and I sat down at my table and I wrote my mother a response. Two hours and four pages later I was finished and I looked around my kitchen and I heard God whisper to just let it be….no one cares if I make dinner tonight…its fine! So I listened to God’s whisper and I went for a walk, to get some air and clear my head and to tend to myself and my heart….and Lara I was blessed with the most amazing sunset you’ve ever seen!!! God’s beauty in my life….and I never would have witnessed it or had the courage and strength to let it be if not for your power sheets. If not for that little voice that told me to let the mess stand and cultivate this so important relationship with my mother. I have no idea if the letter will help or it’ll work out BUT I know that I feel really good about being able to put in the work. Thank you so so much!!!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:33 pm

      Wow, Maria, this encourages me so much. I’m so sorry you got that letter, but grateful God gave you a remarkable opportunity in receiving it to trust Him deeply. Sending love to you and prayers!

  370. McKenzie on September 7, 2016 at 12:07 pm

    My goals are to grow my relationship with God and learn more of His word, I want to read the entire Bible this year, to find a new home and a community in it when my family moves, and to give myself plenty of grace as our family grows and changes this year.

  371. Adriane on September 7, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    Just filled out my September goals!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      Yahoo!!!

  372. Julie B on September 7, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Some my goals:
    – Continue to pursue a Christ-centered marriage
    – Clutter bust every area of life
    – Pursue a healthy lifestyle (mind, body, and spirit)

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      Love it all, Julie!

  373. Alycia on September 7, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    I need to set goals so I can keep up a healthy lifestyle, so I can keep up my prayer life, and so I can Balance my marriage, parenthood, and work!

  374. Claire Cook on September 7, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    Goals: put my Power Sheets to use!!
    Get my house ready for Baby #3 to arrive in the next 2-3 weeks!! (Eeeek!!!)
    Grow my business to help financially support my family and allow me to be at home with my babies!

    • Lara on September 7, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      Love your goals and yay for Baby #3!

  375. Kori on September 7, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Thanks for this Lara. You are always so encouraging! I appreciate you sharing your time and your experiences with us.

  376. Kori on September 7, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    I forgot to leave a goal! My goal is to plan out a meaningful Christmas season for my family this year so that we focus on what is important and don’t feel pulled in so many different directions.

  377. Deidre on September 7, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    Love seeing your stories on snapchat and IG. First goal is to finally read your book after owning it since it debuted!

  378. Gabby on September 7, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    What a great giveaway! Powersheets helped me achieve my goal of going to grad school.

    • Lara on September 8, 2016 at 10:10 am

      I’m so glad to hear that, Gabby! That is wonderful!

  379. Charmaine Moore on September 7, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    I am so inspired by my 2016 Powersheets! I love looking back at where I was with my goals, and the prospect of what’s coming is so encouraging. I love the process, I love the blog, I love your book . The quote from September ‘s page, ” The best is yet to come.” has given me much needed motivation at a critical time. Progress on my goals, not perfection, is what I strive for. Thank you for everything!

    • Lara on September 8, 2016 at 10:10 am

      Yay, Charmaine!!

  380. Audra Meagher on September 7, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    I have so many goals this year, but number one is being more intentional with my time.

  381. Laura on September 7, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    I am so inspired by the concepts and encouragement you have through your blogs and your site. Thank you for being the best YOU you can be, and sharing your light with others.

  382. Lisa on September 8, 2016 at 12:07 am

    I can’t wait for the new Ppwer Sheets, I missed out last year.

  383. Andrea on September 8, 2016 at 4:51 am

    My goals: to hire an executive director for a local nonprofit I volunteer for, to move my health higher up on my list. My Refrehment Goals: to ask myself, “what do I need?” while I care for my chronically ill husband. On my Tending List this month: Crush my weekly activity goal, journal about ways I am overly critical, getting the best night’s sleep!

  384. Natalie on September 8, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    I love watching all of your Facebook Live videos, and the recent webinars – they are so encouraging and grace-filled! Thank you, Lara! My goals include: finally opening an Etsy shop, making a habit out of being in the Word every day, exercising, meal planning, paying off my student loans, and reading at least one book every month.

  385. Jody on September 8, 2016 at 1:22 pm

    I’m so excited to take the power sheets journey!

  386. Patricia Victa on September 8, 2016 at 10:18 pm

    I’m a new immigrant to the US from the Philippines, and even before I flew to California, I’ve already been following this blog and dreaming of owning a set of Powersheets (but international shipping would have hurt my wallet!). Powersheets would be the perfect tool for me to set new goals while I’m in this season of unemployment. I’m also convinced that Powersheets will help strengthen my marriage during this transition. Hoping to win any of the resources here, but if not, I’ll still get a set of Powersheets on November 1st!

  387. Anna on September 9, 2016 at 3:26 am

    I encouraged somebody at work. She has been doing a great job and I wanted to let her know that I really appreciate that. 🙂

  388. Julie D. on September 9, 2016 at 6:33 am

    Lara, you have encouraged me so much! I have been able to set new goals and do new things because of it. Thank you!

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 10:00 am

      I’m so grateful to hear that, Julie!!

  389. Julie D. on September 9, 2016 at 7:03 am

    I texted my friend to encourage her heart as she starts a new chapter in her life. Change is hard and I wanted to tell her she can do it!

  390. Liz on September 9, 2016 at 9:35 am

    My goals include taking my side business of 12 years with my mother and building a business that will eventually be full. I’d like to do what I love everyday. I’d like to find a better work/life/volunteer balance. I think another goal would be to make living a priority, rather than something that just happens around the rest of my schedule.

  391. Danielle Hoke on September 9, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Today we encouraged the tellers at our bank by bringing them munchkins as a thank you for all they do and always being friendly. It was an encouragement to us as well when we heard they’ve had a really rough week and it was a highlight of their week to get the surprise. Definitely made me thankful we’re blessed with the finances to give freely!

  392. Harley on September 9, 2016 at 11:44 am

    Part of who I am is to encourage people and I try to do it often. I’ve encouraged my co-workers (even though I’m still at ‘intern’ level!) – especially in regards to them taking their CPA exams. I encourage my daughter daily to continue doing the things she loves (science and reading!!) and to be the best version of herself. I encourage my friends when they are uncertain of things/unsure of how they will be able to do things; such as: starting school as an adult, working while going to school, trying to find a job, pursuing their passions. I have seen people online that need encouragement that I try to step in and encourage – a lot of times in various facebook groups for various things – when they go through a struggle or when they are wanting to lose weight. An exact example that happened last night was my good friend was talking to me about her blog that she started in March (had no idea until I mentioned I was thinking about blogging!) and she has been submitting pictures (she blogs about food) to a website that has rejected about 5-6 images so far.. so she just submitted another 3. I mean, she doesn’t need much encouragement but I did let her know that I was proud of her and admired her for not giving up and that she will get a picture submitted, I know for a fact, and that it will be great for her blog. 🙂

  393. Mikaela on September 9, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    My main goal right now is to just be in the Word and in prayer as much as possible. I’m also working on setting up a business and am realizing that I need to be setting more specific goals with that. I’m in transition right now so when things settle a bit that will be a priority! Thank you so much for your posts and encouragement!

  394. Sunni on September 9, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    so excited to watch all of your recent webinars!! i love you all and your team – you are so uplifting and encouraging!!

  395. Bethany Aleshire on September 9, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    Thank you for this Lara! I feel like you too at times: what are the long term goals? As a student, I feel like I have a handful of paths or options but still haven’t felt like I met a goal/option where I’m HECK YES I’m called to this and I’m going ALL IN on it. So right now I’m still praying over the long term and this Senior Year of career prepping. But more than that my goals for this semester are faithfulness in the everyday. Jesus first in the morning, investing in friends/family everyday, and working out everyday. The best results are ones of quiet work and faithfulness in the process. Keep doing what you’re doing and doing what God is calling you to 🙂 As I’ve watched from afar for the past 7 years of your life/career, I can tell you your influence matters.

  396. Kristin Conklin on September 9, 2016 at 2:25 pm

    I definitely have slacked with goal setting this year and I’ve yet to invest in your power sheets so having this opportunity to win is greatly appreciated. One of my biggest goals right now is learning to choose what’s purposeful and what’s God honoring…ie, not saying “yes” to things jut because I think that’s what the person wants to hear or is what I should do. Watching you live this out is always so encouraging! Hope you and Ari are well!

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 2:53 pm

      Friend, I miss you. If you are ever near my house, stop by and say hi. Really!

  397. Kailee Weiker on September 9, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    Thank you Lara for inspiring me to reconnect with my faith. For almost 10 years my faith hasn’t come first and I’ve had many times when my stress has gotten the better of me and since I have reconnected with God I feel a lot better about my life and the way that I am living it.

  398. Amanda H on September 9, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    Ah where to begin, so many goals 🙂 I want to be in the Word more and cultivate a passion for the Word in my kids. I’d love to find a way to use my passions better. I want to be more intentional in dates with my hubby!!

  399. Amber Jensen on September 9, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    2016 has been a year of playing catch up with a business that has been growing faster than I could imagine! It’s left me feeling scared for the future because I haven’t had time to even glance at 2017. I’m looking forward to our wedding season slowing down and being able to really set intentional goals for the winter and planning to meet those goals. Success is terrifying, but it’s happening and j just need to trust that I am smart enough and strong enough to rise up and face the challenges that come with growth head on. I can’t wait to order power sheets and a new planner for 2017. I leant my copy of Make It Happen to my lead planner on my team because I haven’t had time to read it. It felt like the perfect thing for this aspiring girl. I’ll read it when she’s done, or if I win my own.

  400. Jamie on September 9, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    I started my power sheets in February buy let them sit on my desk under a pile of other “things” that I let get in the way of what matters. I’m excited to start new this fall- focus on what really matters and start FRESH. Lara, you are so encouraging and I admire your honesty.

  401. Meghann Richardson on September 9, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    Balance my marriage, friendships, work, running, etc.
    Pray and read the Word more.
    Train and complete a half marathon in under 2 hours.
    Be a better wife (and learn to cook one new dish a month!)

  402. Julia Bowen on September 9, 2016 at 3:43 pm

    My goal is to set up my closet for weekly outfits and give away the rest!

  403. Carli Fernandez on September 9, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    My goal is to use my powersheets that I havent touched since January! ;(

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 4:43 pm

      It’s never too late to start — I’m excited for you! Just start with one sentence in your PowerSheets. Make a mess and dig in : )

  404. Ashley on September 9, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    Thank you for the Power Sheets and your message!!!

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 4:43 pm

      My pleasure, Ashley!

  405. Ellie on September 9, 2016 at 4:01 pm

    Today’s encouragement was centering the needs of a friend who is struggling in a do-it-all world where doing it all shouldn’t have to be ALL!

  406. Maria on September 9, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    Thank you, Lara! Determined to find a better work/life balance and your insight is so helpful.

  407. Becky Wenrich on September 9, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    As an independent coach with Beachbody, one of our daily vital behaviors is personal development. Make It Happen has helped me to dig into my “why” and what landed me where I am today. It helped me start reading personal development at least 15 minutes each morning before my household wakes up. And one of my goals for the rest of this year and into next is to continue with that daily, combining my Bible reading plan with personal development. Thanks for all you do to inspire!

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 4:43 pm

      I’m so encouraged to hear that, Becky!

  408. Lisa on September 9, 2016 at 4:21 pm

    I’ve just returned to work full time from maternity leave and so my main goal right now is to get through this season with my son and husband knowing that they are still the most important to me. I also have that half marathon to run in 5 weeks … 😛

  409. Lisa on September 9, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    I encouraged a co-worker by telling him how helpful he has been in my transition back to work.

  410. Emily on September 9, 2016 at 4:37 pm

    Like you said in your post, my goals are up in the air, and confusing, and frustrating. I have a headache today. It’s strange because I feel like I have a million options, but don’t know which one to take, and it is terrifying.

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 4:45 pm

      Oh I understand that feeling. I don’t know if this helps, but sometimes it is helpful for me to get all those options and ideas out on paper. Seeing them helps me sort through them and take action on just one first. I’m cheering you on, Emily!

  411. Catherine on September 9, 2016 at 4:44 pm

    I have absolutely loved my Powersheets and can’t wait to continue! Progress, not perfection!

    • Lara on September 9, 2016 at 4:58 pm

      I’m so grateful to hear that, Catherine! Here’s to a great finish to this year!

  412. Sarah Teeter on September 9, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    While the season you have been in is full of family and writing, I have been so encouraged seeing glimpses into daily life and how your strength comes from God. Loving the inspirational IG posts and your weekly blogging. Thank you!!!

  413. Sarah Teeter on September 9, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    Encouragement: opening our home to a morning with a best friend, as we haven’t had the time to connect lately. Listening, watching our kiddo’s play, and spending time together was an encouragement to both of us. Already scheduled the next chat date, so they continue to happen.

  414. Alli on September 9, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Couldn’t listen all the way through live. THANK YOU for offering the reply. September is my first PowerSheets month, and this couldn’t have come at a better time!

  415. Rachelle on September 9, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    I love to encourage others and try to do it daily and often. Texting friends encouraging words and/scripture, emailing my husband telling him how grateful I am for him and encouraging him on his tests (he just went back to college), and putting notes in my daughter’s lunchbox.

  416. Hannah on September 9, 2016 at 5:20 pm

    I watched live and finally sat down today to process and watch again while I could take notes during my 11 week old’s naptime. I truly feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement always!

  417. Heather Dreeman on September 9, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Loved the webinar – it was great!!! I am using the Powersheets to make intentional family memories and I also have my Bible out on my kitchen counter (one of the tips from the faith webinar) & we ended up reading from it – or rather, my 9yo (the my 6yo) did!!! YAY!

  418. Shannon Pastore on September 9, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    What a beautiful giveaway! Thank you for the chance!

  419. Beth on September 9, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    Maybe setting goals will be easier and more realistic using your tools!

  420. Miriam Boone on September 9, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    Leaving a comment 🙂

  421. Miriam Boone on September 9, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    Told my son how proud I am of him!

  422. Anna on September 9, 2016 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway and all of your inspiration to Make it Happen!

  423. Tae on September 9, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    Such an awesome giveaway! Thank you!

  424. Sharmon MacPhee on September 9, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    I am so glad I found your site. This is a great giveaway!

  425. nicole on September 9, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    this would be so awesome my daughter has started art classes, this would be a great help

  426. Heather on September 9, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    One of my goals is to complete the graphic design e-course by Jones Design Company and the Rescue Academy e-course by People of the Second Chance.

  427. Mary on September 9, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    Thanks Lara for reminding me life is not as complicated as I make it to be and pointing myself, and all your readers. My goal is to be in the word and prayer everyday, to help me to get back to “simple”. Not because we serve a simple God, but because He has made a way for hope, and I need to rest in that. Knowing that God who gave his Son for me would spare little else to make me at more like him, at peace and the ability to see simplicity in everything I seem to complicate

  428. Sarah on September 9, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    I have a few big goals this year: seek God, finish the groundwork for a business I would love to launch, and to be a better sister! So thankful for the PowerSheets and everything you all create!

  429. Amy on September 9, 2016 at 7:28 pm

    Working on getting up before my littles to have some quiet time. It’s just so hard when one is up by 5:30 most days. But baby steps, right?

  430. Katherine Heath on September 9, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    I want to find balance. I want to live intentionally instead of just surviving life on a day-to-day basis. Most of all I want to be an awesome roll model for my 3 yr old daughter.

  431. Kylie Horan on September 9, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    I’m so grateful for my dear friend Carrie and her introduction to your blog. It is incredibly motivating!

  432. Sabrina Nohling on September 9, 2016 at 8:35 pm

    I am getting ready to get married AND join businesses with my husband and this would be so wonderful to set goals and make big things happen!

    All the heart eyes for these tools! I always have to psyche myself up for monthly planning, but this month I set just a few intentional goals and it was great!

    SO excited for the 2017 powersheets!! I started using them in 2015 and wondered if they were worth the money, hesitant to “take the leap”, they have literally changed my life in the best ways! I love Lara and the Lara Casey Shop team and the heart they put into these products! Xoxo

    Thank you, Lara, for making goal setting a little bit easier and brighter!! I may not be the best with using my Powersheets, but the encouragement and flexibility with them makes it that more easy to plan and ponder.
