2012 Goals

And now I will share my goals for 2012.
  • Read through the entire Bible in chronological order. A sweet sister in the church shared this website (Read the Bible in One Year) with me. It allows you to select whether you want to read the Bible through from the beginning, in chronological order, historical order, or passages from the Old and New Testament each day. I'm really excited to read through the Old Testament in chronological order.
  • Learn to quilt. I'm going to have a new niece or nephew in June, as well as an adopted niece or nephew (my best friend's first baby!) in June. I hope to make a quilt for both of them.
  • Run at least 25 miles a month, for a total of 300 miles for the year.
  • Read 50 books. I have a list of books that I didn't get to last year, plus a new long list. I'm sure there will be others added to it as the year goes on!
  • Try one new recipe a week and post a review. This isn't really difficult for me, because I love trying new recipes. Posting the review might be more of a challenge!
  • Take one picture each day. I'm already behind on this, because I didn't decide to make this a goal until a few days ago. But, I'll give myself some grace and take a few extras to make up!
  • Learn more about blog design. I want to learn to make my blog more personalized and attractive my lovely readers. I'm a little tired of the cookie-cutter templates and functions.
  • Send one handwritten note each week. This is a repeat from last year, but something I still want to work on becoming more of a habit.

Here's to a year full of learning, growth, and fun!

Can't wait to hear all your updates on your goals. I've never read the bible through in chronological order. That sounds really interesting. I'm super impressed with all your goals!

Lydia, it's so funny that you mentioned the bible reading in chronological order. Brother Tommy Green (at Hebron) has designed bookmarks for our bible reading and he felt lead to do it in chronological order too. So we are going through that way also! We'll have to compare notes~ :)

You always have such lofty goals haha. I'm still just thinking about making some resolutions...
