A New Day

In Honor of the New Year and the resolutions that normally go with it, I've decided to challenge myself in new and exciting ways along those same lines:

1. I will be reading and reviewing books for Thomas Nelson as a Book Review Blogger. I. am. so. excited! Can't wait to get my first selection, "Living Life In The Zone: A 40-Day Spiritual Guide For Men", and dig in. You're probably wondering why a chick is reviewing a spiritual study for men, right? Well...I have 3 sons, I work with the teens at church, and I want to be able to recommend an honest and relevant guide to them as they grow and mature.

2. Try and be in (and OF) the Word more consistently. Like my friend Joshua writes in his awesomesauce post "I Am Batman", "I would rather read a book by Donald Miller or Rick McKinley or Rob Bell or Mark Driscoll than read my Bible." Kinda sad.

3. I want to be healthy. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. Relationally. Whatever that means for me. Whatever it takes. PERIOD!

I really don't like resolutions. I feel like its setting yourself up for failure. I do like Donald Millers idea of living a better story. I don't know about you, but I think maybe that's the ticket for me.

Here's to a better story in 2010♥
Peace, Love & Joy
