Introducing My 2016 Word...

The past couple of years that I've chosen a word to serve as my theme for the upcoming year, several words have jumped out at me and I had to whittle the last down to that one perfect word. This year I thought and thought and came up with only two words and they were synonyms!

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?

  1. I love reading everyone's words for the year today. They've all made me think. Build is a good one. It's so creative and actionary (is that a word?). I hope to build up my writing career and eventually, an online business. Lots to work on this year. Much success to you! stopping by from Mama Kat's.

  2. Build is such a strong word! I know you will be able to accomplish all those things. I can't wait to see some of your recipes.

  3. Prov. 14:1 says that "Every wise woman buildeth her house." Seems like you have made a great choice for your word!

  4. Learning to can and make sandwich bread were both on my list a couple years ago. Tried both. Loved both. Still doing both! Hope you enjoy these things as much as I do.

  5. Oooh great word of the year!! You can use it in so many areas and it sounds like you've got the important ones covered!

  6. I love your word! And I love the building healthy food part. I've been wanting to learn to make bread but have not yet done it - maybe this year!
