Accountability has to start somewhere, so where better than online. I have no idea who really reads anything I post but when I do post about something I'm going to do or try I feel accountable. One reason is because I know that my 3 girls and my husband are reading (by the way I love the 4 of you more than the moon and back :)
So here is goes. Things I will be working on this week, and if you are reading this please pray for follow through I will need it.
BIBLE STUDY: I am currently reading a book called "already gone" and I would like to finish it. I also have to get all the plans ready for the upcoming Beth Moore Study. I'm very excited about it. Love doing Beth Moore in the Summer!!
MEMORY VERSE: Phil. 2:14 Do everything without arguing and complaining.
I need to learn this and model this for my children who are watching me. Lately these two things have been hard for me. I find myself complaining and not praising God for all my current circumstances. This will be hard for me.
HUSBAND ENCOURAGEMENT: I tell my husband all the time I love him and how much he means to me, but I need to be more specific. He is an incredible man and he works very hard to provide for our family. I want to be more encouraging to him in this area. I want to tell him daily how much I appreciate all that he does for our family. He is a great provider!!
TRAINING THEM UP:
Jelissa- Keep encouraging her in college endeavors and reminding her to not stop looking for scholarships.
Kristie-Not here this week, call her and encourage her
Keisha-Keep helping her stay focus on things she has coming up. Encourage her to continue looking for scholarships. Possibly let her drive some while I'm in the car, possibly, she need driving hours. Need to be encouraging.
Darius-need to stay focused with the potty training, need to stay on him about the wiening when he talks, first time listening
Cynthia- Constancy, throwing fits
PERSONAL GOALS: 1. stick to my dinner menu again this week (it made life so easy this past week) 2. going back to work this week and I have set up a night time schedule for myself- I really want to stick to it.
3. Get back to my read through the bible in 90 days book. (I started reading through the bible in 90 days before my surgery and have not return to it since. I would like to get back to my routine in the mornings)
4. No matter what is going on read to the kids before bed
NEW HABIT FOR THE MONTH: Less yelling at the kids and more talking. I really feel that I have gotten in a habit of yelling at the kids when they are being disobedient. It is not changing their behavior so I need to change my approach. Not sure exactly what I will be doing but its not yelling. I want to work on that this month.
MENU: Trying to not shop this week but instead use mainly what I already have around
Monday: We Grilled at friends house tonight- everything was wonderful
Tuesday: Leftovers- We have grilled all weekend and we have lots of stuff in the refrigerator, its clean up time.
Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup and Mash potatoes (yes I know its summer but I have potatoes to use up, and the grandma noodles in the freezer)
Thursday: Fiesta (thanks for this weird food combo Kristen we love it now)
Friday: Roast-crock pot night (going to a conference no time to cook for kids)
Saturday: BBQ sandwiches
3 THINGS I'M THANKFUL FOR:
1. My wonderful husband
2. The freedom I have here in the USA
3. For my kids who bring more joy than they will ever know
That's all folks. Lets see how I do.
