Dedicated in Twenty Fourteen

While looking forward to a new year I see a chance to make new goals. I don’t make “resolutions” but something about a fresh calendar makes me think about what I have accomplished the current year and what is possible for the future. I long for the growth and renewal. Since blogging, I have chosen a “word of the year”, but when I think of the areas I want to grow the most in, I struggled to find a word that fit.

I decided that within all of the categories I wanted to focus on, one actually encompassed all of them. Dedicated.

Dedicated Faith

Dedicated in Twenty Fourteen

I’m crossing my boundaries of what I am comfortable with as far as Bible study, and venturing into the outlining process. It freaks me out and I don’t want to share it publicly with anyone, but I must do this to learn to study effectively. I will, however, be sharing with you my sources.

Dedicated Family

Dedicated in Twenty Fourteen

With working away from home I need to give my all to my family while I am home. I’m shying away from the computer, with it’s trap of the social media web. I want the real, the authentic. I get my satisfaction from hugs and snuggles, not likes or shares.

Dedicated Homeschool

I crave more focused record-keeping. I feel like I barely have time to homeschool before work each day, but I must make the time to do this!

Dedicated Finances

Dedicated in Twenty Fourteen

We’re trying so hard to make wise financial decisions. I don’t want anymore blurred lines between want and need.

Dedicated Less

Less is more. I am going back on a major purge-a-thon in our home. Nothing is safe.

While I plan not to be around much on my personal or blog Facebook pages, I will certainly be sharing on Instagram which doesn’t have the same time warp hold on me. I’ll be sharing here as much as possible, and I’ll also be doing a monthly post to update you on my progress. This isn’t a forgotten-by-February kind of plan. I want to succeed! Who’s with me??

    I really fail to understand as to why people still put that old T-shirts when they are so
    out of trend. There are several types of western fashion that you can find
    at online clothing stores including casual wear,
    formal wear and party wear.

    We have previously tested this with GMX, which works
    quite well. This package includes one Control unit that plugs into the wall and into the phone jack and one alarm that can be
    attached to a door or window as well as a motion detector that will sound loudly
    when an intruder crosses its path. You don’t know whether the contractor,
     service workers or contractors are honest, and letting them in or giving them a key could be a fatal mistake.
