One of my favorite bloggers, Mix and Match Mama, started doing a monthly post with a few goals she hoped to accomplish that month. I have been wanting to be more intentional about setting goals, so I'm going to start making monthly ones. I'm hoping that by writing them down and even sharing them here, it'll help me to stick with them!
First up, April goals:
1. Finish spring cleaning - I have had a list of spring cleaning items on the fridge for about a month now. My goal is to finish my items on the list. Mini-goal - convince Jake to finish his items on the list even though we are mid-turkey season. ;) Wish me luck!
2. Finish "Fervent" - I have a bad habit of getting into really good books, but even though I love them when I pick them up, I take forever to finish them, or don't finish them at all. Fervent is SO good, and I need to finish it! I want to get into reading more and I know if I would spend half as much time on social media, I'd have plenty of hours to devote to reading. Please make me feel better and tell me I'm not the only one!
3. Invite someone over for dinner - This doesn't sound too hard, but when you have busy nights, it's tempting to enjoy every night you have at home just relaxing. I'd like to invite a couple or a friend's family over for dinner one night. Hopefully games can be involved?!
4. Start using my prayer journal - I bought one of these prayer journals from Val Marie Paper:
I want to be more intentional about praying for the requests of my friends and family. I think it'll be great to keep track in this prayer journal. The best part will be to look back and see answered prayers and use it to encourage myself on those days where I am feeling that God is distant. Little reminders of His faithfulness go a long way. :)
What are your goals for April? Do you make goals? How do you keep track of them? Let's talk in the comments!
