My 2013 Goals


Personal goals
  • Hello Mornings continues.  Getting up when alarm goes off.  Exercise, Shower, Quiet time, Plan.  Leading my group through the Winter Challenge and excited to start next week! 1/16/13
  • I had planned to read Eden Diet, but I am making too much legalism in eating hunger/fullness so my goal is intuitive eating and taking care of myself.
  • Use this devotional each morning to start my quiet time and prayer. 1/12/13-loving this so far
  • Journal each morning things I am thankful for and praises. 1/12/13-not doing so well at this yet
  • Use my Journible and write out the scriptures and study them and learn from them and soak them up. 1/12/13-loving this a lot, and it really soaks in when I am writing out the Scriptures, then there is a place on the left of page to take notes and it asks a few questions as you are writing, i like!
  • Read lots of good books that I have on my Kindle already or that I have purchased, and I'm sure a few more that I know I will find along the way. 1/16/13-need to work on reading through one entire book at a time, feeling a bit scattered because all of the books are SO good!

  1. I love the book Hinds Feet in High Places. I hope you enjoy it. Excited to see your marriage as your first earthly priority - too many forget to do this. Lots of good goals and several I need to keep in mind in my own life.
