I have my new planner that I’m in LOVE with, it really seems awesome!

I’ve bought my Motivated Mom’s app!

I have my Gratitude Journal.


My Goals:

I did a horrible job at my goals last year.  I think I was a little overzealous, plus I had no idea that God would place me on a different path.  I’m going to try and be more realistic this year.



  1. Memorize 6 scriptures
  2. Participate in at least two Bible Studies
  3. Continue to give
  4. Read a yearly devotional and read at least four other religious books.



  1. Read and pray with kids 5x/week
  2. Each kid gets a monthly “date” with Mom or Dad
  3. Have a monthly game night
  4. Sit down as a family to eat dinner at least 4x/week
  5. Monthly date with my husband
  6. Read Moments with You: Daily Connections for Couples (going to try this again!)
  7. Read at least two marriage books.



  1. Have quiet time 5x/week
  2. Take weekly baths
  3. Exercise, starting with 1-2x/week working up to 3-4x/week
  4. Drink lemon/honey water daily



  1. Pay off credit card
  2. Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University DVD Home Study Kit (9 Week Course) 2012 Release (going to try this again)
  3. The Legacy Journey DVD Home Study Kit (I hope I can get to this this year.)
  4. Have a fully funded 6 month savings



  1. Post on FB at least 4x/week
  2. Follow up with 10-15 people a week
  3. Hold at least 6 classes or Make N’ Takes
  4. Be Gold rank



  1. Do Motivated Mom’s 5x/week



I have been a little discouraged when it’s come to my blog.  It’s not growing like I’d like and I’m not making any money at all.  I know I put it on the back burner after I started the oils.  I have a feeling that is going to stay the same this year.  I am getting frustrated because I don’t feel like I’m reaching people or really helping.  However, I’m not ready to totally walk away either.  I would like to hear from people about what they would like to see posted on the blog.  So until I feel called to focus more on the blog or start hearing from readers, I will try to post 2-4 times a week.  I am planning on doing a weekly oil post, switching Thankful Thursday to Gratituesday, doing a weekly post on the monthly Parenting Challenge, and every once in a while another post.  As always, please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have any questions and/or any suggestions on what you’d like me to post.


I hope you all have an amazing New Year and I hope you reach all of your goals!
