My Word of the Year 2017: Heart

I know it’s the middle of January and I’m a bit late on my Word of the Year 2017, but I haven’t had a word of the year before now.  I have seen a lot of people doing this and I thought a Word of the Year could be used as an awesome accountability tool in my walk with the Lord.

My first thought was to go with the word Abide because that is where I want to be ALL THE TIME, abiding in God.  But in doing a Word Study I realized that while Abide is a really good choice, it just didn’t cover all that I wanted my word to cover.  So I am choosing Heart for my Word of the Year.

4 Rules of Communication

When my husband and I came back together you can imagine there were some adjustments to be made.  After all, the children were used to dealing with two different homes with two different sets of rules.  And the fact that we were apart for more than two years, it would take some time to get back into our own roles.

Life was wonderful for the first couple months, but Continue reading “4 Rules of Communication”
