It’s 2015 and that means it’s time for a new Word for the Year. I don’t do resolutions. Instead, I prefer to set goals and objectives.
We’ve been going through that healthy exercise with our family this week. All of the children and Andrea and I are praying and considering what we want to accomplish this year and what steps it will take to get there. We start out with general drafts and then refine them into something doable.
Last year, we joined the OneWord365.com community in praying and asking the Lord to focus on one word for the year that will help shape our vision. My word for 2014 was adventure. Because of that, I spent more time thinking about the adventures I had hiking, writing, driving and living life out loud here in Idaho. This year, my word is BOLD. I believe God wants me to be bold this year in being who I am, sharing what I’ve learned, and forging ahead to new places.
Andrea is still praying about her word for 2015, so hopefully she will join in soon and share her reflections on 2014 and thoughts on 2015.
I encourage you to find your word for 2015 and keep it in the back of your head. You might be surprised at how much it pops up in your life.
