The month of January

I'm trying to stay focused on the goals I set for myself for 2014, so at the end of each month I'm going to do a recap.
 
So far so good on my goals.  Of course we are only one month into the year but I am hoping by making myself do a recap each month it will help me stay focused or if I lose focus, it will help me get refocused for the next month.
  
Personal Goals: I completed an unfinished project of cards, mailed out cards of encouragement, organized my night stand, and blessed several ladies that I met from my Lilla Rose business. 
 
Books to Read: I started reading Life Management for Busy Women and then I realized I want to go slower with this book and actually blog as I read so I put it aside and forgot all about it.  I'm going to start reading it again this weekend.
 
Financial Goals: Not doing the greatest job of keeping track of my spending and expenses but I'll try again next month. As for my missions giving, I am excitedly supporting the Kendall family.
 
Food Goals: I'm doing good drinking my water and eating fruits and veggies.  Next month I want to focus more on making wise choices in everything I eat.
 
Crafting Goals:  I used Summer Silhouette stamp set for the first time and made birthday, congratulations, thank you and thinking of you cards.  I also made some masculine thinking of you cards for a customer who special ordered them.  I've been stamping for several years but never really sold many cards.  Already this year God has blessed me with several card orders.  Maybe this year I'll be able to build my card business.  I'm excited to see what God has planned.

 

Spiritual Goals:  I'm happy to report that I stayed on track and followed the reading plan below and it's been fun seeing little things God has been showing me in His word.  I have tried reading through the Bible in a year before and I've never accomplished it.  One of the many things I so admired about Mike is how He accomplished his goals.  I'm praying that God would give me the strength and determination to make it to the finish line.

Looks like you are staying focused! Your Bible reading plan looks like one I have done a couple of times. The "Victory" reading plan? It took me a little longer than a year to finish, but I was glad I did it.
