Personal/family goals for 2019

I don’t know if you’ve seen it all over your feed, but everyone on my feed has been posting their ‘word’ for the new year. 

About 3 weeks ago, God laid on my heart that my attitude for the new year needed to be ‘selflessness’. Intentional selflessness in everything I say and do. I’m not an overly selfish person, but I can be a negative person sometimes and negativity breeds selfish habits.

That’s my word for this year: Selflessness. 

Along with that, here are some other goals: 

To read / study the bible a whole lot more than I am now. Every day if possible

To practice more positive parenting skills

To SAVE money

To serve in every capacity. (Parenthood, marriage, in church, outside of church)

To find an extracurricular activity for our kiddos (gymnastics, dance, soccer?)

To read 40 books! (I read 31 in 2018 so let’s see if I can increase this #)

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones! May this be the year of blessings and accomplishment. God bless!
