I need to add two more things to my list of goals for this new year!
8. I want to be consistent with my devotion and prayer times with God. I do good for a few days, then get busy or sidetracked and slack off. I know devotion time isn't absolutely necessary in order for growth with God, but it is something I want to do. I need to overcome my fear of lack of confidence in this area. My plan is to start gettng up earlier in the morning to spend 20-30 mins in devo and prayer.
9. I also want to be more intentional about family devo time and teaching my kids more about the Bible and character qualities. I'm not exactly sure how I will do this, however I will start with a few children's devotionals and probably pick one character quality per month from The Duggar Family's website. You can see and/or print this character quality list her: http://duggarfamily.com/content/character_qualities. I could always look ahead for devos that pertain to that month's character quality. I have to admit that I feel very unprepared for this task. I know I need to teach my kids about God, but I never really had that modeled to me and neither did my husband, so I've sort of slacked off in this area. I want to use our day-to-day life circumstances to teach my kids about God's love and grace that He has freely given us. If you have anything that you with your family and children, I would love to hear about them!
I think that is all for now...however my OCD tendancy makes me think there should be 10 goals on my list. So I may be back with one more! lol
I hope you all have had a Blessed New Year! I'm excited for what God has planned for me and my family in 2012!
