For several years, I have been using the Cultivate What Matters: Powersheets Intentional Goal Planner. At the end of last year, with so much hope and excitement for the new year I ordered my 2020 One-Year Powersheets. I couldn’t wait to dive into the prep work and see what God had in store for me in the first year of this new decade. Back in January 2020, I had every intention to share my new Powersheets with you. Unfortunately, life got away from me and I’ve only just had a chance to write this blog post.
Maybe you’ve had a crazy year too and desperately need a refresh. If so, you can visit the Cultivate What Matters website and check out their 2020 6-Month Undated Powersheets Intentional Goal Planner. It is the perfect time to grab one of these, because it will help you live out the rest of this insane year with purpose.
MY WORD OF THE YEAR
Honestly, from the beginning I thought my word of the year should be LOVE, but as I thought through all my options I wanted something more significant and trendy. Why couldn’t my word of the year be something like Shine, Flourish, or Centered!? However, God has other plans for me and quickly began to reiterate His word of the year for me through songs, Bible verses, and more.
I kept praying and finally decided to embrace what God had in store for my life during 2020, as I landed on the word LOVE. Plan and simple. God wanted my focus to be on love. Loving Him and others. Being loved by Him. To love and be loved.
MY 2020 GOALS
Also, in case you’re wondering, here are my goals for 2020.
1. Being loved by God and love for His Word
2. Love and cherish Jon
3. Genuinely love my girls
4. Write my book and share my story
5. Being healthy and teaching my goal weight
Lara Casey and her team at Cultivate What Matters have a lot of resources to help walk with you as you work to accomplish your goals each year. Lara has written two books (which I will list below) and she also has a podcast called, “Cultivate Your Life with Lara Casey”. I’ve been listening to this podcast and I appreciate Lara’s honesty about how life hasn’t always been perfect, but God is making her mess into her message. Her passion is undeniable, so I hope you will check it out!
Finally, I have included a list of helpful, motivating books. I included Lara’s books and a few others that have really encouraged me this year.
