2014 Goals

The end of one year and the beginning of another is the perfect time for reflection.  I posted last years completed goals yesterday.  It was so awesome to see so many things checked off.  However, our kids and our family are NOT where we want them.  And we've come to realize that in order to get them there we need to have time to just be a family, to sit down at night and build relationships.  So I'm becoming very concentrated in my goals and Tony and I are starting to look at our year in a different way.


*With God
*With our kids
*With each other
*With other foster and special needs families

Some ways to do this:
*More one on one with the kids
*Devotions personally, as a family, and as a couple
*Intentional actions as husband and wife
*Time with friends who are in similar situations (make ourselves more available to serve them).


*Of our house
*Of our ministries
*Of paperwork

Some ways to do this:
*Organization of EVERYTHING!
*Going through every inch of our house and getting rid of.


*Paying down debt
*Saving up for future things and events we want to accomplish

I'm not sure how these goals will all play out, but we hope to look back at the end of the year and feel calm about life in general, confident in our family, and firm in how God has called us to spend our money.
