I finally settled on the word:
Now that we are back in the States, I want to start building our home. I want to get things out of our storage unit and set up an organized and efficient home.
I want to continue to build up my relationship with the Lord. I want to spend more time reading the Bible and understanding who He is.
I want to continuing building up my husband and our relationship. I want to show him love and appreciation and improve the flaws in my character that irritate him.
I will build a healthy food lifestyle for myself and our family. I want cut back on processed foods, cook healthier meals and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.
I want to continue to build up my friendships. We can spend more face to face time now that most of us are in the same country.
I will build a career. I want to start turning my writing hobby into a living. I plan on being more committed to freelance writing this year.
I plan to build my skills. I want to learn to can, bake sandwich bread. I want to learn ASL, brush up on my Spanish and sewing skills. I want to learn a good braided style for my hair. Also, I'd like to learn some cake decorating techniques.
In previous years, I've chosen "love", "bold" and the phrase "God in me".
What is your word for the year? What are some things you hope to build in 2016?
