What Are Your Goals for 2014

C.S. Lewis said, "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream..."
Where there is no vision, the people perish... (Proverbs 29:18a KJV)

We are a week and a half into the new year. 

Are you still as gung ho on your resolutions as you were on January 1st or have you fizzled out? 

Have you written out some goals for you and/or your family? 

Remember, goals take time to reach. They do not happen overnight.

Goals require a plan and action. Goals are only ideas until you set a plan in motion.

Goals need to be attainable. If your goals are too hard are too high to reach, you will give up before you have even started.

Brian and I set some goals for ourselves

1. Eat better. We are not doing a complete overhaul of our eating habits in one shot. We are eating the same kinds of meals, but we are eliminating snacks and "extras" throughout the day. 

2. Pray together in the evening. This is something we used to do when we first got married, but life, exhuastion, and the birth of our chldren squeezed it out of the schedule. We are putting it back in.

3. Have a joint devotional a few times a week. We have our own devotions, but there is nothing like having time in the Word with your spouse. 

4. Exercise. I am enjoying my exercise time. I originally planned on exercising 3 times a week, but I am enjoying that time so much that it has become a daily thing for me.

Have you set goals for yourself or as a couple? I would love to hear what they are! Leave them in the comments or share them on our Facebook page.
