I love a New Year, don’t you? It’s a great time for looking back, taking stock, celebrating victories, thanking God, recognizing weaknesses, asking forgiveness, looking ahead, making plans, resolving to do better, praying for wisdom, and starting afresh.
I worked on all those things this morning while my children slept in. The older ones helped ring in the New Year with friends, but Doug and I and our little ones went to bed early last night, so as to begin January 1 well-rested.
I’m keeping my printer busy today! For several years now I have used this one-page 52-Week Bible Reading Plan and really like it, so I’m printing another copy of that for this year.
But I also created some goal setting worksheets to help map out priorities and schedules for the coming 12 months. Maybe you’ll find them helpful, too:
These worksheets have space for setting personal, spiritual, educational, social, and financial goals. So think through what you’d like to accomplish in each of these areas over the next 12 months and commit those dreams to paper.
The version for your children is especially well-suited for homeschoolers, but is a worthwhile exercise for any parent who wants to be intentional about time spent interacting with your progeny.
In addition to spiritual, academic, physical, practical, and social goals, there are spaces provided for recognizing each of your children’s unique strengths and weaknesses and developing a strategy for developing/improving them through curriculum choices, memory passages, extra-curricular activities, and health measures.
Make the coming year your best yet
