Happy New Year!

I am so grateful for the work God has done in 2011. It was a wonderful year in many ways, and a very rough year in many ways. We had quite a few hard losses and many trials, but it was such a growing process, and has really helped to put a new perspective on some things for me.

One of the things God really put on my heart at the beginning of last year was how much I need, NEED to be in the Word every day. I made that a goal last year, and it was amazing how much it grew me. Quickly.

My main goal for this year is to become more of a prayer warrior. Through Jesus Christ, we can come boldly to the throne of grace, and the only reason we don't take advantage of this is because of a lack of faith. We just  finished a wonderful study of Hebrews with our church, and one of the main things that I was challenged on was how important faith is. Faith is EVERYTHING. Literally. 

We, as a family, don't tend to do New Year's resolutions, but it is nice to be able to kind of take a moment to take an "inventory" of the last year and gear up for the next year.

So....I hope you all had a wonderful 2011 and have a blessed 2012!!!


  1. Hi Lisa!

    Great goal for 2012! My goal for the year is two-fold...one, just like you, to become more of a prayer warrior. And two, to learn the Word of God more and to make sure that the things I belive are actually backed in Scripture and know why I belive them.

    Can't wait to see you in a few hours!! =)

  2. I can't WAIT to see you either! For some reason, I am a little nervous :) Probably because I am worried about what man will think versus what God thinks of me.

    Wonderful goals. The worldview study that we have worked through this past year has really helped me learn to check everything I have with Scripture. Have you ever done the Truth Project?

  3. Oh Lisa, we had so much fun with y'all yesterday! Thank you SO very much!!! It was great to meet you and hopefully we can stay in touch!

    I added your blog link to my blog this morning :) You may find it here: http://proverbs31ten.wordpress.com/family-friends/

  4. Amy! We had SO MUCH fun with you guys, too! Thank you so much for coming out. We will definitely have to stay in touch. It is so neat how we have become friends so quickly.

    As you all were leaving, David said, "Look at that. One day together and we're best of friends." It's so cool what God can do!

    Thank you for adding my blog! I'm honored :)
