Goal Setting for Families; The Home Hour, Episode 78

No business could succeed without proper planning, strategizing, and goal setting. So what if  we if we applied those same basic principles to the way we run our homes and families?

On this episode of the Home Hour, Graham is interviewing her co-host Kirsten about her tradition of taking an annual weekend away to focus solely on goal setting. We discuss how Kirsten and her spouse plan their yearly calendar, their one year goals for themselves and for their kids, their house goals, and their long term planning for the future. Think of this episode as a to-do list on steroids!

To help you get started on setting your own goals, here’s a sample template!

Also on this episode, we check in with our real life remodeler Jen to find out how things are going back at her house, while she’s halfway across the country on summer vacation!


  1. What book did the in-laws write?

  2. Were you planning to share the goal setting template? Thanks! Great episode!

    • Thanks Erin! Kirsten and I are getting the templates ready for presentation and will post over the next few weeks! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the episode.

  3. I love everything about this! I have an Inkwell Press planner that has places for goals for everything is super helpful to me but I never thought of including my husband (whoops!). After listening to the episode I talked to him and we are doing it this weekend! So excited and motivated thank you!

  4. I absolutely LOVED this episode! Kirsten, thank you so much for telling us all about your goal setting weekend with your husband. My husband and I constantly struggle to find time to talk about goals and family schedules and this would be the perfect way for us to get on the same page as well as feel like we’re having some quality time without the kids. This is definitely going to be a must do in our house! P.S. I have been telling everyone about this idea, that’s how great I think it is.

  5. I just listened to this episode and I loved this topic. I’ve never heard of anything like it, but it’s amazing. I would love to get this going in our household!
