Build: Stronger and Deeper

As I sat down to think about 2019 and plan for 2020 I was really struggling with coming up with a word to describe my goals. I had a page full of words but none of them really seemed to express what was in my heart. The more I thought about it, I was able to narrow it down to stronger and deeper but I felt like it wasn’t cohesive.  As I continued to pray and think about it on Wednesday, it finally came to me: Build. I wanted my focus to be on building stronger and deeper relationships and on making myself physically stronger so that I can continue to enjoy being active with my children and husband.

In 2020 I want to:
Build a Deeper Relationship with God
Build Deeper Relationships with husband and children
Build Deeper Relationships with others
Build My Physical strength and health and make myself stronger.
Build a Deeper Relationship with God.
I plan to continue to work on being consistent with my daily devotional and prayer time. As a family and in conjunction with our church family, we are going to also be going through the book Core 52. I have been a Christian for many years, but want to always be growing closer to God and deepening that relationship.
Build Deeper Relationships with husband and children.
All in all I have good relationships with my husband and children but I want to continue to grow those relationships. With children in varying stages of growing up (from 13-1) I have to be very intentional about giving them each what they need.  Along those same lines, I want to make sure that I continue to work on my relationship with my husband. It can be easy to neglect our relationship in the midst of the day to day needs of our family, but it is really important that I prioritize that relationship. I am hoping to work out a good system for having one-on-one time with each member of our family.
Build Deeper Relationships with others.
While I love hospitality and enjoy spending time with others, it can be really easy for me to get so focused on the daily needs of my family that I do not take time to cultivate friendships. I want to make sure that I am taking time this year to build deeper friendships and be fully present for those people that God has placed in my life.
Build My Physical strength and health and make myself stronger.
My last area of focus is on my physical health and strength. I took some small steps towards regaining my strength last year through online PT with Tummy Team and some exercise with Fit2B. I had a hip injury that set me back a little bit but I’m ready to refocus. It is really important to me to be physically healthy and fit enough (to the best of my ability) to be active with my children. I have started back doing my Fit2B workouts and I am going to be walking with my neighbor. I am hoping that the exercise will help me have more energy and motivate me to do more active things with my children.
Those are my priorities for 2020 and how I plan to Build: Stronger and Deeper. I would love to hear about your plans for 2020 or any suggestions for building stronger and deeper relationships.

  1. I chose the word focus; to focus on God and my faith, focus on my family, focus on our health and focus on the blog. But God has to be first in order for the rest to be successful.
