Ahhh, a fresh start! Oh how I love the new year. I woke up early this morning and started working on my 1st goal to read the Bible cover to cover in 90 days.
My other goals are:
Memorize one long passage from the Bible each month. (I still need to choose a passage for January. I'll pick the passage before each month begins and start working on it.)
Continue to pour my life into the women that God has brought into my life. I want to be intentional in spurring them on to the Lord.
Read 1 book a month. Subjects: spiritual growth, parenting, marriage, fun stuff. January's book is Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges.
Work out 3 times a week. I want to get rid of my belly fat!
Limit junk food intake to 1 snack a day. Increase fruit intake. Limit the amount of junk food I buy. If I don't buy it, I can't eat it!
Focus on Eddie. Daily think of how I can help and encourage him. Ask him what I can do to be a helper suitable to him.
Prioritize our physical relationship. (I started reading Rekindling the Romance by Dennis and Barbara Rainey earlier this week. It has helped a lot with me preparing my mind for action.)
Start teaching Halley the ABCs (one letter a week). Use Totally Tots.
Use Songs for Saplings to teach her the Scriptures.
Continue working on the Children's Catechism. One per month.
Read to the children daily.
Sit down with Eddie before the month begins and talk over our budget. Spend every penny on paper before the month begins. Use the envelope system.
In the Kitchen
Plan our meals every week.
Recycle and Reuse where I can.
Bake all of our bread using my new Bread Machine.
Stick to our food budget.
Update my blog atleast once a week. I've set this goal in the past, but I'm going to try again.
Well, that should be enough to get me started, dontcha think?
