July Goals

Thank y'all so much for your love and congratulations on our announcement post!  I am going to go back and respond to blog comments today, but you guys have totally overwhelmed us.  Thank you for supporting us and being excited for us!  Tomorrow I'll share a few more details about what this season looks like for us.  But today... let's talk goals!

I completely started over on my powersheets and I'm so glad that I did.  So much has changed since I started filling out that pages in December of 2015.  Shortly into the new year we started the adoption process and this summer we added a pregnancy into the mix!  I didn't feel like my goals really fit with the new season of life we are preparing for so I decided to start with a clean slate.  I'm feeling really connected to my goals for the next six months and I'm excited to see the little by little progress that I make each day!  Next week I'm going to post about all of my goals, but today I'm going to share the few I'm working on in July. 

1. Memorize Isaiah 26:3-4

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.  Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock."

2.  Have a fun date night with Tyler

I want to do something fun each month with just the two of us!  

3.  Finish our registry

We have a shower coming up at the end of the month and I need to add a few things to our registry.  Have any "must haves"??

4.  Spend time with Jamie and DON'T take work!

I'm getting to spend 10 whole days with my best friend in a couple of weeks and I want it to be a sweet vacation with little distractions and NO work!  Going to add putting up an "out of office" email on my to-do list!

5.  Start a morning workout routine 3x a week

I REALLY want to start being consistent with working out.  I'm hoping that I'll start feeling more like myself in the coming weeks and I'll have the energy to work out!

6.  Clean out my closet

I'm ready to SIMPLIFY and I want to start with my closet!

7.  Have Sabbath rest each week and spend the day away from social media. 

I want Sunday to be a day of rest, worship, and family time!

8.  Organize social media posts for House of Hope

I am the social media person for House of Hope!  I'm wanting to really get organized and prepare some great content.  Would love for you to follow us on Instagram

9.  Re-write our 314 Productions mission statement. 

We have a lot of change coming to our family and we want to prepare our business in the best way possible.  Beginning to think about what this next season looks like for us and we are so excited!

10.  Organize our email inbox. 


Each of these goals stems from my "overall" goals that I'll talk about next week!  Did you create any goals for the month?  Share your link below!
