Goals for 2015

If you have been around the last few days, then you know how much I LOVE setting goals. Yes, I’m quirky that way.

If I were to choose a theme for this year, it would be learning how to become a godly woman. I am still in the process of what it means to be a godly woman, wife, mommy, etc.

Here are some goals that I came up with for the year. All of these are steps in the process of becoming more of a woman after God’s heart (I hope!).

A list of goals for 2015 (and how to have success achieving them!)

So…I’m just gonna lay it all out there. It’s kinda like baring my soul to you all, but here it is!

    You’re ambitious, and I like it! πŸ™‚ Have you looked into the memory verse challenge on Beth Moore’s blog? I’m planning to try it (memorize 24 verses/year…so half of your goal)–it would be fun to meet up at the celebration and hang out!
