I already know this year will bring changes as we welcome Alder in just a few weeks and become a family of 4. I know it will be a joy, but also a struggle as I learn to juggle everything while also being a Mama to two little people. I am also in a new position at work where there are things I just don't know yet. So while I contemplated my word this year simply being survive, that just didn't seem right because I want to do more than that.
So my word for 2017 is FIGHT.
Fight for joy in the everyday moments of motherhood
Fight against my fear of inadequacy
Fight my desire to compare with others
Fight my urge to spend money on things I don't need (part time status=budget time people)
Fight to strengthen my marriage
Fight to put God first and make time in a crazy season to spend in His word
See this article for more reasons I felt this word was perfect for me this year.
