    My Goals for 2021

    I love setting goals and intentions each year. To be honest, I know some people like to distinguish between the two, and even I have at one point, but really, they are pretty much the same thing. I don’t really do much in the way of measurable, “SMART” goals. I just make goals and then look back at the end of the year and see if I think I did a good job or not.   My word/theme for the year is love one another. I wrote a bit about that already but I was keeping that in mind while creating my goals.     I decided to try to…

    My “One Little Word” for 2021, Okay, It’s a Phrase

    Well, 2021 is here! And that means it is once again time for me to share my One Little Word for the year. I can’t believe I am in my ELEVENTH year of doing this. I have found picking a word (or words, or phrase) for the year so beneficial. I love setting goals and intentions but it can be hard to remember them throughout the year. Picking a word or phrase it a lot easier to remember and be thinking about throughout the year, at least it is for me (but, of course I’m setting goals for the year as well as choosing a word, the goals will be…

    Free Monthly Intentions/Goals Printable

    I always like to take some time during this season and start thinking about my word for the next year as well as my goals. I plan on sharing both my word and my goals in the next few weeks but first I have a freebie for you! A few newish-to-me blogs that I follow share their monthly intentions instead of their goals and I just love that slight change in wording. With the new year less than a month away I’ve been thinking about my goals (or intentions) for the year and I want to make an effort this year to do better with creating monthly goals. To help…

    My Goals for 33

    Since my birthday was nearly two months ago I figured this would be a good time to share my goals for the year. I like to set goals each year at the beginning of the year and around my birthday, though I always go for a longer list of goals on my birthday and generally include some simple ones and some that I probably won’t reach. I like to dream big and imagine possibilities and I like my goals to reflect that. Though, apparently if I take two months to actually share my goals some are completed or in the process of and some I’ve already decided to change or…

    Lessons in Friendship from Mark 2

    I love it when I come across a passage in the Bible that I have heard or read numerous times but suddenly something jumps out at me that I hadn’t noticed before. That’s exactly what happened the other week when I was reading through Mark. I am going through the book very, very slowly, after about a month of starting the book I am only on chapter 3, but it was last week while going through chapter 2 that something jumped out at me. The story at the beginning of Mark 2 is of Jesus healing the paralytic man. In this case Jesus doesn’t just happen to pass the guy and…

    Restlessness and Thought Bubbles

    Have you ever felt like God was calling you to do something; He gave you the desire, some gifts to help you with it but it feels like He forgot to give you the map to get there? This is the space I have been in lately. And by lately, I really mean the last four years. It has me completely restless because I feel like I was made for more (which is pretty much the title and subtitle of the book, Restless). This “normal” western life is not the kind of life I feel called to live. I feel as though I am supposed to make a difference somewhere…
