SELF-DEFINITION starts with knowing who you are + what you VALUE.  Do you often ask questions like these?

  • When was the last time I had TIME to think about MY dreams?
  •  I spent MONEY on just what I wanted, when?
  • Do I ever have ENERGY leftover for ME?

 Does this sound familiar?

Those are all REAL QUESTIONS that I asked myself just a few years ago. Honestly, as a busy wife + mom + entrepreneur, I was FEELING SORRY for myself. And it’s no wonder I was STUCK. I didn’t know who I was; therefore, I didn’t know where I was going. But you know what I found?

You can find the time, money, and energy when something is valuable to you.

Are you a parent? Then I am guessing you weren’t sitting around twiddling your thumbs all day saying, “Maybe I should bring something into my life that will consume all of my time, money, and energy.” You probably felt like you didn’t have enough of any of those. But as soon as your baby was in your arms, you FOUND the time, money, and energy because it had VALUE.

So back to you and your value. It’s a matter of value when you say you don’t have the time, money, or energy to think about or invest in yourself. 

Those are EXCUSES why you don’t, not REASONS why you can’t.

 First, you need to decide that YOU matter (cuz you do, my friend). And you have to recognize you don’t have to have calmness all around you or an abundance of TIME, MONEY & ENERGY, to start designing your DREAM LIFE around what you value in the 7 Key Areas of your life.

All you need is a pen + paper + 10 minutes to get started.

What do you really want your life to look like in these areas of your life?
  • FAITH walk?
  • FAMILY relationships?
  • FRIEND connections?
  • FIELD accomplishments?
  • FINANCE choices?
  • FITNESS goals?
  • FUN experiences?


You need to know what you VALUE in each area. It is not about the expectations others have of you, the culture, or even the ones you have of yourself. Answer the questions in a way that is authentic to you. These have to be your dreams and goals.

Once you know what you VALUE, you can align your values with your actions.

What if I told you there’s a SYSTEM for DESIGNING your DREAM LIFE? It’s a series of 3 SIMPLE STEPS that quickly helps you know who you are, what you value, and how to live what you say matters.

The Design Your Life Blueprint
EVALUATE where you are

Just like a GPS needs to drop the blue pin at your current location, you need to know where you are starting from too. What does your life look like right now in each area? In what ways are you already living according to what you value? In what ways are you not?  

 ENVISION where you want to be

The next piece of info your GPS needs is your intended destination; you need to know where you are headed. Where do you want to be next month, in 6 months, one year or five years? Go back and look at what you wrote and visualize how that goal-achieved will look.

 EXECUTE what steps will take you from here to there.

Now your GPS can take you turn by turn from where you are to where you want to be, and now you can start mapping out a plan for your life too. You don’t have to know every detail before you leave the house; just take the next step and the next and the next…and you’ll find you’re moving in the right direction.

You CAN get there…and do it FASTER than you’d expect.

On your own, you can get to a certain point, but with someone by your side to help see your blind spots, reroute your missed turn, navigate the obstacles and keep you engaged on the journey… you’ll get farther faster. That’s what a coach is for. To be in the passenger seat and help make your adventure even better!

Never DIY your greatest priorities.

How would life be different if you started with SELF-DEFINITION built around what you VALUE? When you know who you are and what you want, you’ll be able to get there when you take consistent action.

I have a gift to help you get started? It’s my DREAM LIFE PLANNER WORKSHOP. Together we’ll push pause to dive deep into each area of your life…and then create a workable plan to put what you dream on paper into action in your life.

I can’t wait to see your DREAMS become a REALITY.

Feel like life pulls you in too many directions…and you’re not fully present anywhere?

I’m Lissa, Time Management Coach & Recovering To-do List Girl who went from over-whelmed to on-purpose with a simple plan to Redeem my Time…for who + what matters most. And I’ve been teaching, coaching & leading Christian women for over 25 years.

As a wife, mom & leader, my life was too busy– I was showing up on the outside, but not fully present on the inside. I knew something had to change. I started asking God what He wanted me to focus on, and that’s when I started to be more present.

Now I’ve created space in my schedule for growing in my faith, enjoying date night with my hubby, supporting my young adult childern, pouring into other women, serving at my church- and taking care of me…finally!

It’s time for you to have the same. Because YOU are here for such a TIME as this.
