Mama’s Mission of the Month: January 2013 {and Dec Accomplishments}


Mission of the MonthWelcome to Mama’s Mission of the Month! My hope is that this will help me {and you} follow through on some of the goals that we have set for the month! So, if you are a mama and you want to join in, check out the intro post! (If you have already read the rules, you can easily grab the buttons from the Buttons Tab on the top of the sidebar.)

December Mission Update:  First off, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that December was filled with lots of joy and time spent with family! As for me, my December mission was to have fun with my kids. It was great giving myself permission to not worry about all the other “stuff” on my To-Do lists and just enjoy my family! I definitely think it is something that I need to be more intentional about!

Mission Accomplished

My Mission for January 2013: 

I am excited about all of the possibility that a new year brings and I plan to be more intentional about the things that are most important to me…like my family! With that said, I do have quite a few things that I am excited to get back on track with. Here are my goals for the month of January 2013:


B90: Bible in 90 Days1. Get back on track with my {adjusted} B90 Bible reading plan.

    This is GREAT Mama Jenn! I am so glad you broke out Marriage if your to do list. It makes it a priority and sadly that is one we forget in all that we do. Thank you!!
