Hello 2018

This past year has been such a wonderful year for our family. I have stepped out of roles and into new ones. We took lots of great trips and saw great growth in several areas of our lives. We moved our family out of our local downtown area and started our little farming adventure. We've learned a lot about ourselves and our kids over the past few months and a lot about what our goals are. I'm sure that as we grow and expand to meet our goals over the next year that we will learn even more. 

 Over the past few days, I've been thinking about what our 2018 may look like. For right now, we are looking at having a few more breeds of animals hanging out around here! Hoping to really educate ourselves and our family (and anyone who will listen!) on the process of where the animals come from and how we can give them their best life while providing quality nourishment for our bodies. Hopefully we will grow some produce (if we can protect it from the chickens!) and really be able to bring our meals from farm to table! 

As is generally the case, our calendars are already starting to fill up with sports tournaments and BMX races that we'd like to make, business trips, and pleasure trips. My biggest goal for 2018 is to simply enjoy the life we've been given. I tend to get wrapped up in the stresses of making it to everything, saying yes too many times when I should say no, and having everything be perfect. This coming year, I plan to say no when I need to, purge the junk and simplify our lives, and just soak it all in. 

My greatest desire is that in all we do that we will be a light in a dark world...whether we are in a school, working on the farm, speeding around bike tracks, throwing softballs or lacrosse balls let it all  be done for His glory. We are ushering in 2018 with great anticipation for all that the Lord may do in us and through us! 

2017 was such a blessed and full year! Bring on 2018! We are ready for you!
