My Word: 2015


My word for 2015. Growth.

I want to see myself grow in all areas of my life. 

In my relationships: 

with God - to accomplish this, I'm following the She Reads Truth app in their journey through the Bible. In all my years, I've never read through the Bible! I'm excited to tackle that this year. I'm hoping to update once a month (I'd say once a week, but who are we kidding) on here and post my progress. I'd love for you to join me in this journey and share your progress here with me! 

with my husband - the hubs is currently working non-stop and going to school on top of it all, we hardly ever see each other. Plus, with two kids now demanding my attention, it's hard to get any time with just the two of us. I want to grow in serving him. Though we may not see him, I can still serve him. His love language is acts of service. I want to be better at picking up after a long day, putting the dishes away, cooking, all the stuff that I end up looking over after a long hard day of screaming children.

 my children - here's to 2015 and spending more time doing with my kids. Jo is at a wonderful of age where she loves to discover new things. I want to explore more with her and show James the world. So here's to more trips to the park and around town!

Jobs:

mom - I love being a mom. It is the best job in the world. But I still feel like I need to grow in this area (no, that doesn't mean that we're adding another little one to the family in 2015). I don't know what that means, but I do feel that tugging to change the way I do things. To not be quick to anger, to be okay with both of my babies making a mess, to smile and laugh more and play more, to put down my phone! 

homemaker - this goes back to showing my love and serving the hubs through acts of service. I'm honestly not the best homemaker. I have my moments, but lately, I've let the things fall through the cracks. Laundry is the bane of my existence. It doesn't help that the washer and dryer is in the deep, dark, scary basement that's hard to get to with Jo wanting to follow me everywhere and James screaming. I'm going to take it one day at a time, but I'm bound and determined to get into a routine with that stinkin' laundry!

Norwex - I'm still in love with this company and I want to share it with the world! The green cleaning and the ease of cleaning is just amazing! I want to spread the world and help people get rid of their chemicals. 

Health:

running - I need to get back into shape. Having two babies in less than 2 years did a number on my body. No surprise there. To do this, I want to start running. Knowing myself, I need motivation. And what's more motivating than a trip to Disney?! So here's my public announcement: I'm going to be running the 2016 Disney Princess Half Marathon. I have a year to train and prepare, but I'm stoked. There really is no better motivation for me than Disney. Now I just have to pinch my pennies so I can afford the registration fee.


What are your goals for 2015? Do you have a word that you want to represent 2015?
Here's we hold true to our words and that 2015 is the best year yet!
