Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Here are my goals from last week:

1. Daily meditation, bible reading and rosary. Get to mass at least 2x this week.

Family/Mothering Goals

3. Play miniature golf as a family. (Something we’ve been wanting to do for a while.) [I took pictures but unfortunately they didn’t come out very good. We had a great time, though!]

4. Read Stanley and the Magic Lamp and Two Magic Treehouse books (Tonight on the Titanic & Buffalo Before Breakfast) as well as two chapters a day from the Bible to Andrew. [We also went to the library and he choose a set of Magic Treehouse audio books to listen to; so far 5 books listened too. 🙂 ]

10. Continue writing project and updating website. [Little progress with this due to the chemistry class.]

And here are my goals for this coming week:

2. Continue memorizing 1 Peter 1:6-7 (“In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”)

Family/Mothering Goals

3. Read two of The Boxcar Children Books (The Pet Shop Mystery and The Hurricane Mystery) and  books  as well as two chapters a day from the Bible to Andrew.

Monthly Goals: February

Set Goals

At the beginning of the month, I shared some of my goals for 2012. To help me stay focused and on track, I am going to update weekly and monthly here on the blog. I’ve been reading the weekly and monthly goals on Money Saving Mom, and have been so inspired by Crystal’s dedication and commitment to achieving her own goals. I’m hoping that by sharing my goals, others will be inspired to stay committed to achieving their goals!

As a nutshell, my goal for 2012 is to live a more Christ’s centered, intentional life, with an emphasis on peace. I wish to be more attentive and be more present to my husband and son. Finally to break my sugar addiction (more on that in another post), do well in my courses and work on some personal development projects ( a.k.a. learn some new skills. 🙂 ).

Here are the goals for February, along with a little update on how I did in January:

Spiritual Goals

1.Daily Mass, daily rosary, daily 10 minute bible study and meditation (Ongoing) Did OK, but missed several times…

2. Scripture Memorization: John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.” (I didn’t memorize a scripture verse in January…)

Spousal goals

3. Write one love note each week to sneak into Michael’s work bag.

4. Ask him if there is anything that I can do for him at least twice a week.

Mothering goals

5. Read at least one chapter book a week and one “smaller” book each day. (I read a lot to Andrew, but I want to focus on being more intentional about this.)

6. Work on Character building. (This month: Obedience)

Personal Development

7. Knit cover for my Kindle Touch (once I figure out how!).

8. Exercise on the incumbent bike or treadmill 10 minutes a day.

Blogging Goals

9. Compose and pre-post a blog series on marriage.
