We’re excited to share the next edition of “My Word of the Year” featuring PowerSheets user Diana Kerr! Diana has been sharing her PowerSheets journey on the blog this year, but we realized we never shared her “Word of the Year” with each of you! Read below about how Diana has implemented the phrase, “Intentional Foundation-Laying” into her life this year and how she’s continuing to make what matters happen in the remaining months. -Jess
Tell us who you are and what fires you up:
Hey, friends! I’m Diana Kerr, a Certified Professional Life Coach for overwhelmed, go-getter Christian chicks. I’m a wife to my best friend Kyle, a warrior against rheumatoid arthritis since age 12, and, most importantly, a chosen, redeemed daughter of the King.
What fires me up:
What do you value the most?
Beyond the common values of faith, marriage, and relationships, I also really value stewardship. I cannot escape the truth that everything in my life exists because God gave it to me”my marriage, my relationships, my home, my possessions, my business, my time, my health Using all those things to God’s glory is what stewardship means to me, and it majorly fires me up, even though I’m certainly not perfect at it.
If you could envision your most fulfilling year yet, what would it look like?
Running boldly, intentionally, and free to the tune of Hebrews 12:1-2, throwing off everything that holds me back and running with eyes fixed on Jesus. Nothing’s more fulfilling than that, right?!
What is your word for this year?
I chose a phrase this year instead of a word: Intentional foundation-laying.
How have you implemented this phrase into your life so far this year?
I want to lay a strong foundation in both my business and personal life, stewarding my time wellÂ in this season I’m in until God blesses us with children. I’m focusing on one specific thing this year for each major category of life, such as:
What are you saying yes to this year?
And, what are you saying no to this year?
Where do you want to be when you’re 80?
I want to be that wise old woman who’s tight like spandex with God. I picture myself as the kind of 80-year-old who has a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face when she talks about God, who acknowledges the hardships she’s endured but praises God’s faithfulness in the storms. With rheumatoid arthritis, I don’t know what God’s plan is for my health at age 80, but my husband and I hope to still be active and serving the Lord, as well as radically, wildly generous. I envision spending tons of time with family and friends, and getting away to warmer weather each winter. I would really love to acquire a bit of a Southern accent in my lifetime.
Where can we find you online?
Thanks for sharing, Diana! This post was written a few months ago, and we’re excited to share that Diana and her husband are now expecting! We can’t wait to see what this next season has in store for her family! Join us in congratulating the Kerr family below! -Jess
