2020: A Year of Intention

Intentional Year

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that 2020 is here. Wasn't it just the start of 2019? I have never been one for New Year's Resolutions or a word of the year, but last year I stumbled upon Lara Casey's Free Goal Planning series and friends it was absolutely life changing. She guides you towards "cultivated goals which starts with uncovering what truly matters." Last year, my first ever word for the year was Simplify and boy was it ever a year of Simplifying. I will be sharing more on that soon, but for now I wanted to share all about my goals for 2020. 2020 will be a year of Intention and I cannot wait to see how this unfolds in our home.

After going through Lara's posts, journaling, praying, getting my thoughts out, and praying some more, the Lord has guided me to the word Intention or Intentional for this year. I want to live my life with intention. I want to be intentional with my time in the Word, with my time with my family, and with my business. I want to cultivate an intentional year for the Lord!!!!

Cultivating An Intentional Year

A Year of Intention

The Year of FAMILY

  • Intentionally pouring into our family and creating life-giving memories that will last a lifetime. 


  • Intentionally letting go of my to-do list and distractions and saying yes. I only get one year with a 4 and 6 year old and I don't want to miss out on this year!

The Year of SLOW

  • Intentionally creating margin in our days for the things that matter most. 


  • Intentionally spending time pouring into our marriage!
  • Intentionally spending one-on-one time with each of the kids 

The Year of BALANCE

  • Intentionally seeking the Lord's wisdom and guidance for my "to do" list and saying yes to only the things that truly matter. 

The Year of HEART

  • Intentionally spending my time cultivating the hearts of myself and my kids towards Jesus 

Ephesians 3:17-20 "And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots grow down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love really is. May you experience the love of Christ though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now glory be to God for by his mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than all we could ask or imagine."   

James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."
