2023 Made to Give Life Planner
You were made to give life. You were not made for chaos, exhaustion, and worry. You were made for Him.
So, take a deep breath. Where you are now is not where you are going to stay.
It's Time To
Get crystal clear on where you are now, so you can get to where you want to be.
Make plans and set goals based on God's priorities for you in every season.
Return to your first love over and over again all year long with regular check-ins and evaluations.
Reclaim the life you were created for in Christ Jesus.
The Made to Give Life Planner is best for
Christian women, no matter your season of life
Young women, students, empty-nesters, stay-at-home-moms, entrepreneurs, homemakers, or business women. Whatever season of life you're in, whatever circumstances surround you, this is a planning system that will work for you.
Christian women just getting started
Whether you're just getting started in your Christian journey or recommitting yourself to purposeful Christian living, this planning system will help you discover the plans the Lord has for you and help you to live a life sold out for the work of the kingdom.
Christian women who are burned out
If you can't decide what to say "yes" to and what to say "no" to, this planning system will help you uncover what's for this season and what can be put off to another season with confidence and joy. "Peace be still" will be your motto as you prune out the chaos and cultivate the plans the Lord has for you this year.
Christian women who want to go deeper
If you've been living your life faithfully, but wondering if there's more to it than this, wondering if there is more the Lord has for you, this planning system can help you discover anew what the Lord has for you in this season. Revisit your first love over and over again, and go deeper in who God is and who He has made you to be this year.
I'm Leigh Ann Dutton.
I'll be honest...I'm not naturally good at follow through.
I'm not naturally good at getting outside my own head and serving others.
I'm not naturally good at staying consistent day-in and day-out.
I am an idealist to the core, and I flit from thing to thing with an ever-increasing appetite to experience everything life has to offer.
I don't like being boxed into an idea, and I live my life with the mantra, "All plans can be changed!"
Living in chaos would be my reality if I didn't make an intentional, concerted effort to seek the Lord and make plans that matter.
The Made to Give Life Planner is how I stay on track - setting goals, making plans, and following through on what God sets my mind to all year long. It's the planner of my dreams, and I couldn't be more thrilled to share it with you.
Intentional By Grace, Owner
Sometimes we want to make changes in our lives, but we don't know where to start.
We know we want to be part of God's kingdom work around us, but we're not sure how we fit into that picture. What exactly has He called me to do?
Every moment of your life, from your physical birth, to your new birth, to the moment you are in now has been ordained by God for a purpose (Ephesians 2:10).
The Made to Give Life Planner is designed to guide you in a planning and goal setting process that will reveal your work and purpose in furthering the kingdom of God right where you are. It is time to breathe life back into your home, your church, and your community this year.
Seasons are a part of life!
How things are now are not how they will be forever.
It's okay not to do all the things, all the time, in every season. It's not all or nothing, now or never.
But growth is possible! Deep, purposeful work, no matter your season is possible!
You get to choose.
You get to choose what you will do now while simultaneously choosing what you will not do right now.
You get to choose whether you will continue to let your season of life keep you from God’s best for you, or you can choose to maximize your season of life to its fullest right now, right where you are.
And you can do that all year long, not just on January 1!
2023 Made to Give Life Planner
The Made to Give Life Planner is designed to help you get crystal clear on where you are now so you can get to where you wan to be.
This isn't just another planner. It's a way of life.
Guided Goal Setting
The gospel of Christ compels us to ask: What then shall we do? How then shall we live?
This goal setting process will guide you into making plans and setting goals that will reveal your work and purpose in furthering the kingdom of God right there in your own sphere of influence.
Main stream goal setting makes it all about you. The Made to Give Life Planner will take you a step further, and help you ask, "What about others?"
Everything you do whether you realize it or not (whether you mean to or not) will be interpreted by others as revealing something about who God is and/or what He is like. What is your life saying about God?
To bear fruit, we must regularly tend to the soil of our souls. We must prune the dead branches, and water the living plants of our hearts.
The Made to Give Life Planner will guide you in regularly taking inventory of your life, so you can ensure that you are working toward greater efficiency and kingdom impact all year long.
Comprehensive Yearly, Seasonal, Monthly, & Weekly Planner
Our world is longing for the comfort of Christ. His love. His care. His strength and freedom.
God designed you to be a sign of His kingdom, to be a conduit of His love and life here on earth.
The comprehensive yearly, seasonal, monthly, and weekly planning pages will keep you coming back to the most important thing: God's plans and purposes for your life.
Never before have I seen a planner with so many intentional ways to watch over your soul. I have benefited from Leigh Ann's heart and wisdom for years on her blog and the many resources there. Leigh Ann is passionate about teaching women how to order their affections and daily lives around Jesus and His word. The Made to Give Life Planner is the next step in Leigh Ann helping women to pursue holiness and joy.
I love using the Made to Give Life Planner. As someone who loves to make lists for each day, it allows me plenty of room to include those. I also love the goal setting prompts at the beginning of the year that I am able to check up on throughout the year. So many awesome ways to keep me on track and accountable. I look forward to the release date every year!
The Made to Give Life Planner is like the perfect marriage of some of my favorite planners. Since my youngest was born, I really came to understand the importance of goal setting. I struggled with PPD pretty bad and had to set for myself small, manageable daily goals to help get through that season. I've realized I need to be more intentional with this coming year (time, resources, energy, activities, everything!). This planner makes thinking through a year/season/month so much simpler. I think it will be a huge help to women.

When you purchase the 2023 Made to Give Life Planner, you will receive a free video series from Leigh Ann teaching you exactly how to use your planner. The video series will walk you step-by-step through the planning system, giving you tips and tricks for using every single page, as well as offer you encouragement and instructions on how to remain faithful to your calling all year long.
Just trying to keep up with daily demands is more than I can take some days. After seeing your planner on Pinterest I decided to give it a try. I am happy to report I am back in the Word and renewing my walk with the Lord.
No more wish-lists full of resolutions that will be forgotten by next week! Leigh Ann walks you through figuring out your various roles in life and helps you develop a plan that reflects your God-given purpose. This planner will give you the tools and tips you need to live the life God has called you to.
I love Leigh Ann's method for goal planning. It is an exercise in living intentionally in every major area of your life -- personally, spiritually, and in your relationships with others. It's impossible to NOT be changed after you finish working through this planner - because honestly, it's just the first chapter in setting a more intentional, prayer-centered course for the rest of your life.
This is not just another planner that's going to sit on your shelf unused.
The Made to Give Life Planner is designed to guide and mentor you all year long in the plans God has for you. It's like having a spiritual life coach walking alongside you all year long, training you in the spiritual discipline of seeking first the kingdom of God and allowing Him to direct your steps.
The Made to Give Life Planner will help you focus on what matters most and make a plan to live fully into that purpose all year long.
But your planner is a digital download...
Yes, yes it is, but...BUT!!! I'm going to be the first to tell you that when you take the plunge into this style of planning, you very well may never go back.
For years, I scoffed at the idea of printing my own planner, but then I discovered the benefits of printing and binding it myself. It was this discovery that gave me the courage to pull this together into a resource for other women.

Frequently asked questions
About Our PRODUCTS
No. This is a digital download product that will be emailed to you immediately upon purchase. This makes the product more affordable, and for procrastinators like me, you can get cracking on your goals today!
The Made to Give Life Planner is designed to be printed at home. If you don't have a printer at home, you can check with your library, church, or an office with a printer that will allow you access to a printer.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND getting the planner printed at an office supply store. This is much more expensive option (trust me on this one!). Printing at home is the most cost-effective way to print your planner. I have designed the printer to use the least amount of ink possible while still giving you the "pretty" feel.
If you'd like to use the printable version, but don't have access to a printer, you could consider sending the planner to bestvaluecopy.com, which is far less than the office supply store.
I have included detailed printing instructions with each planner purchase, so you won't have to figure it out on your own!
When you purchase a physical planner similar to the Made to Give Life Planner, you will pay up to $78 (or more!) every single year.
When you purchase your digital download planner, you will likely make a one-time investment in a binding system. I recommend the discbound system, which means you will need the hole puncher, binder cover, and coins. If you use the half-size planner, you will also need to purchase a way to cut the planner.
After this year, you will be able to re-use these binding and cutting tools and just purchase the planner for the digital download price, which costs less than a similar physical product in subsequent years.
I have included detailed printing instructions with each planner purchase, so you won’t have to figure it out on your own!
If you don't love your planner, just let us know within 30 days to get a full refund. No questions asked. Well, maybe we will ask you why so we can make the planner better. But you'll still get your money back. Promise.
Yes. There is nothing magical about January 1. You will still benefit from the Yearly Evaluation, Goal Setting, and seasonal check-ins. Just print off the pages you need from this date forward. This is not just a planner. It is a way of life.
The printing of the half-size pages are formatted to print front and back with the comprehensive planning pages. For right now, the time and cost associated with formatting the half-size sheets for Evaluations only isn't possible. This is something we will keep in mind for the future, but for now, the Evaluations are only available in full-size.
You are fully protected by our 100% Satisfaction-Guarantee.
If, for any reason, you don't love your planner, just let us know within 30 days to get a full refund. No questions asked. Well, maybe we will ask you why so we can make the planner better. But you'll still get your. money back. Promise.
