New Year's Resolutions

I've never really been one for New Year's resolutions, but this year we decided to set some as a family. We sat down together and talked about what we could do to strengthen our family, voted on our favorites, and agreed on them together. I really like that the kids helped us come up with them and that we worked together. I figure the more places I put them, the more I'll remember what I need to do, so I'm posting them to my blog! :)

Our church goals are:
  • Have a morning devotional as a family. We get up at 7am and read a scripture, sing a song, and have prayer as a family. That's been going well. :)
  • No playing on Sunday morning and only church videos

Our family goals are:

  • 1 hour of deep cleaning together on Saturdays
  • Do a family activity two times a month

My personal goal:

  • I will take better care of my home FOR my family.

Seeing as this is really one of the first times I've made goals at the beginning of the year, I'm hoping to really stick to them. I don't have a record either way with resolutions, but I'm looking forward to the improvements within my family with these goals.

What a wonderful way to unite your family, Renee. I admire your discipline to wake up everyone at seven to start your day with song, prayer and scripture. What a great thing to instill in your children at a young age. Oh, and the deep cleaning chore as a famiy? BRILLIANT! :)
