Goals Update ~ April 2013

Goals for 2013

Sorry for the delay in getting this update out to you. Spring seems to be such a crazy time of year…recitals, evaluations, projects, yard work, etc. I can’t believe a quarter of the year has already passed. Some of my goals are progressing nicely, others, well, not so good. Check it out.

Personal Goals

Complete a Bible Reading Plan. Still on track with my Bible reading plan. I missed a couple of days, but was able to make them up. I finished reading Alone with God by John MacArthur. A very encouraging and challenging read!

Memorize Ephesians. I have not been following  my Ephesians memorization plan at all. I am determined to press on and NOT give up on this goal, but think I may have to wait for the summer break to work on this goal.

Continue with Church Involvement. Right now we are heavily involved in the Vacation Bible School planning. I can’t wait to share more with you. Our theme is the Armor of God based on Ephesians 6. Very exciting stuff being planned.

Write and Publish an Ebook. I thought I would get two chapters written, but didn’t. Boo.

Lose 20 pounds by the end of July. Let’s just say I bombed this goal in March, but can’t wait to tell you how my April is going. :)


Financial Goals

We still haven’t tackled any home improvement projects.

I did a good job sticking to my cash budget. We’ve also been able to save more than expected. Yay!


Blogging Goals

Design a Blog Logo. No news yet.

Update the Blog Design. Nothing new this month.

Develop a Blogging Routine/Schedule. I enjoyed sharing several Easter craft projects with you in March. I’m feeling a little off my schedule lately, but am working to get back on track.


*NOTE* I did join google+ this month and have thoroughly been enjoying the communities I’ve found there. I also joined twitter. I would love it if you’d follow me. :) Thanks!


Family Goals

Add Bible reading to our evening family time. Not been happening. :(

Learn one hymn a month. Another failure. :(

Continue to host Bible Club. We met twice in March and made great progress in our study of the book of John. Our crafts included Easter Bunny Wall Art and Bunny Friends made from TP rolls.


Homeschool Goals

Continue swim lessons. The kids are signed up for the last session of the school year. Both are making excellent progress.

Add science lessons. This may turn into a summer project.

Start a Germany/France study. Clara is continuing her Rosetta Stone German lessons.

Complete read-aloud book list. We finished Red Sails to Capri. What a fabulous story. Now the kids want to go to Capri. :)

We also read The School Story. Clara has since been diligently been working on her “book” and has taken on a pen name. I just love how books get the kids excited.


How are you doing with your goals for 2013? Please leave a link if you blogged about this recently or just leave a comment. :)
