Hi. I’m Laney Barrett. Welcome to My Purposeful Planning!

I am the wife of the most incredible man on the planet, Justin. I am Mom to Lawson, Linkin, Layten, and Lyndon. I have the best job ever in being a homemaker, work at home mama, and homeschool teacher of my little ones. I love the benefits that come along with being home with my children and being able to help and serve my husband in any way that he needs, all while homeschooling and blogging about my goals, plans, and dreams.

How did I become the face of My Purposeful Planning? 

For me, My Purposeful Planning comes from being a Christian, a Wife, a Mom, a Homeschooler, and all of the other hats I wear. I’ve always loved all things organization and planning-related, but a few years ago God gave me the word “Intentional” as my Word of the Year, and I began to use that word as the jumping off point for organizing my life in way that helps me to be better in all the areas of my life.

I’m definitely not perfect… I get stressed, overwhelmed, and sometimes just feel unmotivated – just like everyone does. But I believe that I can always take a moment to regroup and make a plan to be more purposeful with my life in all aspects… spiritually, relationally, emotionally, physically, and even financially. It’s all about having a Growth Mindset.

My Purposeful Planning has developed naturally from this process of using planning to help me be more intentional and purposeful in my life. It’s where I take an issue I’m dealing with or an area I’m struggling, and I make a plan to problem solve and make things better in some way. Sometimes it’s by creating a new system of doing things, and sometimes it’s by developing a new resource that provides me with more of the function that I’m looking for.

I’d love to help you get started with making your own plan to be more purposeful in your life! I’ll share with you my own systems, resources, tips, and strategies that I’ve learned and have helped me. I want to inspire you and help you to feel motivated to start your own journey of growth and purposefulness in your life!

We wear a lot of hats as women, and sometimes it’s really hard to manage it all. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed and frustrated and then just feel down because things just aren’t working. I believe that we can share our own positive growth experiences in this area and help each other to grow in ways we never thought possible on our own.

Let’s go make a Plan to be more Purposeful!
