2012 in Review Printable

I love the idea of reflecting on the ending year as much 
as I do thinking and planning for the new year ahead.  

Here's a fun little printable to help you do just that!

Print it out for each member of your family,
fill it out, and then fold it up, and store it for next New Year's Eve!
Wouldn't it be super fun to start a tradition of doing
 one of these each year and storing them in a scrapbook?

Print out your own HERE

2013- Love Big & Pray Big

I so love the beginning of the new year! 
Each year in preparation I create something that lists my 
goals & hopes for the following year. 

These aren't really resolutions, just things I want to remind myself 
as I approach the following year.
 I pray about the things God has in store for me in the coming year
 and ask him to lay those things on my heart.  

Here are my hopes for 2013:
My favorites are 
Ask God to break your heart for what breaks His
Stop the glorification of the busy
Be a Jesus girl who rises up & unexpectedly gives graces
Be a go giver
and Pray BIG!

Last year a sweet friend took my 2012 page and had it made into a magnet- 
which I loved and kept on my refrigerator as a reminder. 

This year I decided to turn mine into a poster and hang it in my office. 
 I so love the way it turned out! 
I had this super cute frame that I bought several years ago at an antique store
and it was perfect for it!

Want your own customized copy? 
Several friends wanted their very own customized poster
 (most with their family name instead of bless)
 so if you'd like to purchase your own,
email me (see link in top right corner) and
 I'll tell you the details!

Clear the Stage

My daughter and her dance company danced to this song last night at a dance convention.
I absolutely LOVE the dance- it is absolutely beautiful.  
So beautiful that although I've seen them do the dance before, 
I cry every single time. 

The song is Clear the Stage by Jimmy Needham 
and it's a truly amazing song with such a powerful message. 
My favorite lyrics are: 
Take a break from all the plans that you have made, and 
sit home alone and wait for God to whisper

Beg him please to open his mouth and speak and pray for 
real upon your knees until they blister

Shine the light on every corner of your life until the 
pride, and lust, and lies are in the open

Then read the word and put to test the things you’ve 
heard until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken

Cause you can sing all you want to
Oh you can sing all you want to
You can sing all you want to, and still get it wrong
Oh worship is more than a song

We must not worship something that’s not even worth it

Clear the stage, make some space, for the one who deserves it
