September Goals | 2 0 1 7 |


Whew. It's September...Last I left you with my goals was June, so today I will touch on those, and dive right into goals for this month.


June was quite a ride, with my brother and sister in law diving into their fixer-upper and babysitting for them, and the waiting for Lincoln...then Lincoln's coming and adjusting to life with a newborn and two hour nursing schedule. I should probably do a good recap on that eventually...

We chalked July full of family events, transitioning, and outdoor time and before I knew it, July was GONE. August was about the same.

So, let's look back at June's goals which I didn't touch:

Family:
  1. Memorize 4 verses with the kids.
  2. Make 4 meals each week.
  3. Get outside at least 5 times each week.
Prayer:
  1. Record prayer requests & answers.
  2. Pray for a different person each day.
  3. Memorize 1 verse about prayer.
Blogging:
  1. Schedule through June and into July.
  2. Subscribers up to 50.
  3. Write posts that glorify God & reflect His story through my story.
Personal:
  1. Finish reading 2 books on my shelf.
  2. Cut out processed sugars (pop, chips, candy, etc.).
  3. Dig into a devotional or study daily.
Friends:
  1. Mail 4 notecards this month.
  2. Coffee with Kenna!
  3. Bring surprise flowers to a friend.

None of it. I did none of it. But grace - life was hectic and stressful, and loaded with children, and sweet memories were made.


As we get into September, Homeschooling helps to get everything back on pace, and create some order to our schedule, so taking care of goals should be easy this month.

Family:
  1. Memorize 4 verses with the kids.
  2. Make 4 meals each week.
  3. Get outside at least 5 times each week.
Prayer:
  1. Record prayer requests & answers.
  2. Pray for a different person each day.
  3. Memorize 1 verse about prayer.
Blogging:
  1. Schedule posts & newsletters.
  2. Subscribers up to 50.
  3. Write posts that glorify God & reflect His story through my story.
Personal:
  1. Finish reading 2 books on my shelf.
  2. Cut out processed sugars (pop, chips, candy, etc.).
  3. Dig into a devotional or study daily.
Friends:
  1. Mail 4 notecards this month.
  2. Coffee with Kenna!
  3. Bring surprise flowers to a friend.

So...You'll notice none of them changed. They're good goals to have for a month, and until I can accomplish them, I think I will keep them the same. No point in changing them, if I don't accomplish them - they are super attainable ones if I'm focused.
