My Word of the Year


Last year was my first time to name the year.

It was a perfect fit for 2011.

As the new year rolled around, themes started running through my head.

I once again asked God to show me and He was quick to reply.


Oh how appropriate … and oh how uncomfortable!!

The ideas started tumbling in my head.

I want to STRETCH …

… my FAITH

  • give Christ His rightful position as ruler of my time
  • encourage others with the Word of God
  • banish the fears I still carry around after losing a child

… my BLOG

  • share more of our daily life
  • cheer on homeschooling moms
  • build up community



  • continue our shift towards whole foods
  • 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week
  • force myself into an earlier bedtime


  • scatter scripture throughout our home
  • decorate for my family, not for a design mag
  • shop my house and re-purpose what we have


  • start doodling
  • learn how to quill
  • put my new watercolor pencils to use


  • offer guidance to a group of future homeschoolers
  • teach a Couponing 101 class
  • promote my husband’s business

I hope that posting this long list will hold me accountable (gulp)!!

  1. Amy!! I love His word for you year!! I love all of your stretching that you will be striving for in all areas of your life and I am SO right there with you! Your list is exactly what I have been thinking… except the coupon class… I think I actually need to attend that one ;)

    Very encouraging!!

    Love you girl and miss you!

    JOYfully in Him,

  2. I have never thought about “naming” my year, but it is an excellent idea! I find your word and your goals to be very inspiring and to ring very true with quite a few things that have been on my heart. I think it is time to pray for a word from God that will have me looking deeper into every part of my life.
