Why Small Steps Matter

We're a generation of movers, shakers, big dream chasers. I'm continually inspired by the ladies of our generation, but simultaneously second-guessing if I'm making big enough strides. 
We make annual goalsmonthly goals and daily to-do's but then the hustle takes over our hearts, and not in the way we'd imagined. Sometimes the sweet satisfaction of the hustle turns on us and plants a seed of disbelief in our hearts. 
Friends, that disbelief is the enemy nipping at your dreams. The enemy would have us believe our plans don't matter, we're not worthy, we can't make it happen, He isn't for us. But GOOD! NEWS! His heart is for us! 
We crave a complete road-map for the journey, but that's not what He's promised us. He won't give us a full road-map, but scripture tells us He will light our way. 
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Our big leaps are best made when we put one foot in front of the other, stepping out in faith. 
A lamp will only shine brightly enough to get us a few feet forward, but coupled with our faith we can trust the light will bring us to a place of joy. We don't need to see too far ahead; we simply need to be in tune to the steps He's providing for us.

Why I Choose a Word of the Year & Why you may Want to

In my life, there's not one specific New Year's resolution' I can point to and say ' I did that.' For the majority of us, New Year's resolutions fall to the wayside by mid-Febrauary. That's how it works (for everyone!).
We make New Year's Eve resolutions on a whimopenly hold ourselves accountable to every person we know and then? And then, those resolutions we made on a whim fly out the window.
Friends, these resolutions had no root in your life and no chance of being fruitful!

But if we take a 360 view of the year behind & ahead and choose an overarching goal, our hearts & heads feel more capable to grasp that big-picture notion and put it into action. One word. Just one. A small but mighty goal/emotion/mission that will fill the year to come with a life rich in what matters most.

Year in Review. Be Honest. Dig Deep. Dream Big.

As we come down from the Holiday high, our hearts fizzle from the anticipation of Christmas Day. But friends, this is my favorite part of it ALL! The anticipation of Christmas is special, but it doesn't stop there, in fact it's just the beginning. 
We pray and gather and silence ourselves in the weeks before the celebration of Christmas and that's great, but I think it's the potential filled in the days immediately following that we're missing out on!  
He is here! Now what? Take down Christmas decorations and move on? No!
It's time to seek Him, friends. 
I'm a fan of the big-picture look at a year. Year end reflection & new year vision casting are the bees knees in my book! So, thought I'd share a free Year in Review Worksheet over at by Erin Creative Co. today!
Friends, I want this to be your best year yet. I want you to see the goodness in your days and the Hope He provides. Hop over to our business blog for your Year in Review Worksheet!
