Just for Mom

Mom Goals for 2010
January 3, 2010

Are you looking forward in 2010?
Anticipating great things?

If you focus your efforts, there’s no telling what you can achieve.

Since this page is Just for Mom, let’s talk about you. You can set family goals, marriage goals, and goals for your children, but what do you look forward to for…YOU?

I know, it’s hard to think of only yourself when you’ve been conditioned to think of everyone else 24/7. Yes, moms have great responsibility not only for others, but for themselves.

So, take care of your family in 2010, but don’t neglect you.

Consider some aspect of your personal life or your spiritual life you’d like to work on in the coming year.

Your personal life could include anything from weight loss to attitude.
Your spiritual life concerns the vertical relationship between you and God.

I read a great idea for setting personal goals here. Take a look and get inspired.

You’ll find even more suggestions in my first newsletter issue for 2010, so subscribe today!

And as you set your own goals, don’t be shy. Don’t hesitate because you fear you’ll fall short. Our own shortcomings serve as blessings when they lead us to the Saviour. No matter what your achieve, you’ll learn in the process; you’ll be further ahead than you were yesterday.

Galatians 6:9 reminds us: "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

You may not want to share your goals because, after all, they’re personal! If that’s the case, just leave a quick comment of encouragement and let us all know that you are looking forward!

Hi Laura. I am Michelle Spahr from A Mom's Musings. I saw your post on my blog and followed you to your blog. I don't know how you came across me, but I believe it must have been a God thing. I am looking forward to digging into your website more. 4 boys! God bless you! I have one 2 year old boy and am due any day with our girl. I am feeling overwhelmed just at the thought of managing my house with 2. It's been a prayer of mine lately...so that is why I think us connecting may just be an answer to prayer. Thanks for your post. I hope to write more often on my blog once this girl is here. It seems I sleep most of the time these days...if I am not trying to catch my son! Look forward to getting to know you better. Blessings!

Hi, Laura. Received your newsletter on time this morning and it made me think of one of my mom's momisms: Don't wish your life away. Whenever I wished I were older, that's what she said. And now I tell my kids the same thing. Because those of us "of a certain age" understand how quickly those childhood seasons go by though the hours seem to crawl at the time.

I'm not sure aswell how you came across my blog today but without a doubt lead by God because I was in need of YOU. I am feeling lost and outnumbered. God has brought me here for a reason, a journey a rediscovery. I need to find myself. Your blog is such a blessing Thank You. i hope it is OK that I linked you to my blog.

I have two goals this year:
1. Write SPECIFIC prayers for my kids. Not just, "keep them safe" or "have nice friends" but very detailed: "protect them from drug abuse, alcohol abuse, molestation, ..." I keep this paper in my Bible and pray through the list about 4-5 days/week.

2. Make scheduled time with my kids at night, just before bed, to do an individual Bible study with them. I have a 5 y.o. girl, 9 y.o. girl and 10 y.o. boy. My husband studies with our son and I work with our daughters. I bought age-appropriate books at Christian book store. The studies take about 5-8 minutes each, so it's very quick.

I'm sure I'll create more "goals" as the year progresses, but this is what I've done so far.
