Finding Joy in 2015

A new year, new resolutions. Last year I took a new approach to New Years resolutions. I chose one word to sum up how I wanted to summarize my 2014. My one word was "intentional." In each area from Bible study to time with my girls to time with Brendon to the blog to finances, I tried really hard to focus and be more intentional with my resources and activities. Of course, there's certainly a good deal more I could do in this area, but surprisingly this is a resolution I carried through during the year.  I say surprisingly because who really keeps New Years resolutions? But this one really resonated with me. "Be intentional" became my mantra for 2014. This is discipline that has changed my thinking around the home for sure, and I am thankful for it. Many days I try to think of things to do with the girls that is meaningful, rather than getting chores done and giving them the leftovers. We still have plenty of those days though…
