Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. Ours had a bit of sickness involved, which took out our immediate family and my Dad over holidays. Sometimes my high expectations for it all to come together over the holidays just doesn’t account for things like throwing up and disinfecting every possible surface. 🙂
I wanted to share a few family pictures with you from the last part of 2013 before we move into 2014!
Hannah (16) on right got her first job at Nick and Willy’s Pizza–wow, they grow up fast!
This is the beautiful tree that became our Christmas tree this year–we had a great time for our annual tree hunting expedition in Winter Park, CO.
This is our women’s bible study–at our Christmas party! These women are all amazing and I am honored to do life with them!

A family pic from the second story window of an old barn–yes we crawled up inside–a little gross 🙂
Those were just for fun, but on the serious side I wanted to share some thoughts as we enter 2014. You may or may not be a New Year’s resolution maker, but I happen to be one. There is just something so freeing about putting closure to efforts and events of a period of time, and getting to move forward with a fresh start, new energy, and new dreams.
So, would you join me in making a few this year? And you don’t have to call them resolutions if you don’t want to–maybe goals.
The next three posts are going to focus on the three resolutions that I am proposing for myself this year. Of course, you will have different ones, but possibly these will resonate with you in some way.
They are in the categories of:
SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL, and FINANCIAL
So, stay tuned for the next post focusing on how we can renew ourselves SPIRITUALLY this year. I will share some hopefully inspiring ways to renew your passion for walking closely with God.
Happy New Year!
