“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.” – Victoria Erickson

Well, friends. We’ve made it through 10 months of a wild year. The falling leaves remind us that, as everything seeps back into the cold earth for winter, there’s something happening beneath the surface: spring is getting ready for us. After winter always comes spring. After a hard year, we’re made stronger and more ready for new things ahead.

Here’s a quick look back at my October PowerSheets goals. My November goals are below, too!

October Monthly Goals:
— Focus on what matters and let go of the rest
— Enjoy this life

— Worship at work / Most definitely. A favorite memory from this month was right before our Launch, praying together over our customers.
— Prayerfully launch PowerSheets / Here’s a behind-the-scenes recap of Launch Week for you!
— Prepare for the Proverbs 31 launch! (Mark your planners for November 9—the day I get to share this with you!)

October Weekly Goals:
— Family dance party / We don’t mess around. The Isaacsons can dance! 😉
— Enjoy the birds
— Homeschool joy
— Make it better / My current work motto. Whatever I’m working on, I ask myself, “How can this be better for the Lord?” This directly affects the joy and hope our customers experience when they interact with our brand!
— Enjoy the garden

October Daily Goals:
— Bible reading
— Write in my Bible
— Write the Word
— Move it!
— Presence / A nod to my encouraging words for the month

In case you missed these:
— We finished our barn quilt climbing wall!
— You got a TROPHY.
2021 PowerSheets are here—the life reset you’ve been craving!
— Listen in to my Good Money interview with Derrick Kinney.
— Hear the story of my marriage on The Living Room Podcast with Joanna Weaver.
— Be guided page-by-page to do your November PowerSheets (complete with music and a Fall Refresh!) in the November PowerSheets PrepCast.

On to November. I have 2 goals for 2020 (each with 4 mini goals under them) that are focused on growing something that matters to me in the big picture. Here’s what’s on my Tending List for the month ahead:

November Monthly Goals:
— Move forward / As we near the end of the year, I’m focusing on planning and working ahead to enjoy the holidays
— Celebrate Grace / She’s turning 9—what!?
— Launch the Proverbs 31 partnership / Details coming November 9! Get ready!
— Prepare all for December
— Cultivate our holiday plans
— Let go of the world; hold fast to the Word

November Weekly Goals:
— Family dance party / Keeping this goal going from October – it has been so fun!
— Enjoy the birds
— Homeschool joy
— Hiking / We’re headed to the mountains this weekend, but we’ve also recently discovered so many amazing hikes right here where we live!
— Love my parents well

November Daily Goals:
— Bible reading
— Write in my Bible
— Write the Word
— Move with joy
— Worship Him (This photo and this daily goal are a HINT at what’s to come with Proverbs 31!)

Prepare for November with me! Listen to the November PowerSheets PrepCast below. Be guided step-by-step to prepare for the month ahead—with great music and a Fall refresh:

    Hello CWM,

    This prepcast seems to be for October instead of November, 2020. ?

    • Lara on November 4, 2020 at 9:33 am

      Great catch Veda! I’ve updated the prepcast to November! Yippee!
