Hello, 2018! Wow, I am excited to see you! 2017 was an amazing year full of new (and continued) lessons in my faith and about who I am and who I want to become. And I am looking forward to this year with joy, thankfulness, determination, practice, and excitement!
In 2017, I renewed my perspective about my physical health and lost 30 pounds!!! I started learning how to parent TWO kiddos under the age of 3. I took a step further in learning that I have to take care of myself spiritually, physically, and emotionally if I'm gonna take care of my family and reach out to others well (started practicing regular self care without guilt ... ok, with far less guilt ;)). I grew in my understanding of God's grace and took a step further in learning to practice in all things rather than be perfect. I finished out my first year as a Bible study group leader of young moms, and in 2018, it will become a Bible study based on Titus 2, where all women are welcome, and we will hopefully minister to each other, older to younger and younger to older. ... I know there is more that I'm forgetting.
So watch out, 2018, 'cause I'm ready to grow and change and overcome even more!
