I am a big fan of goal-setting, to do lists, and mind mapping. To see my previous To Do List, click here.

Here are my goals for 2013:


  • Memorize one Bible verse per week.
  • Write out a book of the Bible per month.


  • Go on 6 dates with Andrew this year.
  • Pray for my marriage daily – keep a journal.


  • Connect one-on-one with each child at least once per week.
  • Establish a lunch time devotion time with the kids.


  • Kick the soda habit.
  • Exercise twice per week.


  • Truly commit to meal planning, budgeting, and trimming our grocery costs via gardening.
  • Update and use my Home Management Binder.
  • Reorganize and decorate the laundry room.
  • Turn “bar” into a hospitality center.


  • Write and publish four Bible Studies.
  • Publish one scripture list per month.


  • Send a card or letter once a week.
  • Invite someone over for a meal, game night, playdate, or such at least once a month.


  • Pay off two credit cards.
  • Go on a family vacation.

Those are my goals for 2013. I intend to accomplish those goals with my heart, body, and soul focused on my One Word for 2013 {Joy}. What are your goals this year?

I’m not quite finished yet, I have a To Do list for 2013, too. Be sure to check that out!
