Today I am linking up with Hayley from The Tiny Twig for a little goal-setting accountability and inspiration to dream BIG!

Sometimes, as with anything in life, goal-setting calls for an extra dose of intentionality to make things happen!

We are all surrounded by distractions and discouragements that threaten to derail our dreams and goals.
So I’m taking some quiet time today to focus on the Lord’s leading in my life and for this blog.  When we step away from the noise of life so often competing for our attention, it can be much easier to listen for what God has for us.

God is doing big things already in this little space and I’m excited to watch His plan unfold!

Stay tuned for some extra fun posts coming up in December and an awesome giveaway from a local Dayton retailer with a major national following, (for very good reason)!

SO on that note here are some of 
my November Goals

1. Learn to use Rafflecopter to run this giveaway that I’m so excited about on so many levels (Wheeee)!

2. See all the details through till the giveaway goes live on December 12th.  My sincere hope is for this to lead to many new friends joining us at She Lives Free.

3. Give my best to my family and in my professional endeavors.  It is a season of change, with a lot going on, but I believe all for good reason.  I am particularly excited about learning my new roles with Junior League of Dayton, as a member of the Done in a Day Committee and as Junior Delegate to the Ohio state Special Affairs Committee which will enable me to help advocate for Ohio’s youth in foster care.

4. Look for new ways to bless and be a blessing in both my blog and my personal life!
May we all have the courage
to choose joy and chase our dreams, so long as we hold the plans we make with a gentle grasp.  Even the best, biggest of plans can quickly lose their joy when held too tightly!

So friend, what steps can you take to listen to what God has for you?  Let’s talk about it in the comments!
Here’s to an intentional month!
