New Ventures

I've got a couple of new ventures going on right now that I'm pretty excited about. It all centers around bettering myself and I feel like it fits in perfectly with January and kicking off the new year. 

For the Soul

Our pastor challenged us the other night to read the Bible from cover to cover. It's always been something I've wanted to do and believe me, I've tried a few times, but I've always given up around Exodus. Sad, huh? Well I'm hoping this time goes a little differently. I feel like I'll have a little better shot this time since there will be a higher level of accountability. If you want to follow along from week to week, you can get the breakdown of the schedule here

For the Body

As part of my quest for fertility (It sounds fun when worded that way doesn't it? It's not.) I've decided to make a change in my diet. As of yesterday, my husband, Ethan and I are only eating whole foods. No preservatives, no fast food, and making the slow change to all organic. I'll expand on this more later on as I'm sure I will want to make it into a full post. 

For the Mind

I recently changed my "about me" section because it said things that were no longer true, like when I described myself as "an avid book reader". Um, yeah, I can't remember the last time I picked up a book until here recently. It's funny how we change so much and so quickly that our own "about me" sections, written by us, can be so untrue by the following year. Well, I've decided to get back on the reading train although I'm not back to describing myself as an avid book reader just yet. Along with the Bible, my husband and I are also reading the Love and Respect book to strengthen our marriage even more. I will also pick back up my "just for fun" books that I put down months ago. 

I know January is almost over, but the year has just begun. I can't help but be excited about what all this year might hold. I'm excited about all of the changes I'm hoping to make this year and can't wait to see what type of person I will be by the time 2013 rolls around. 


  1. Sounds like changes for the best!

  2. Good luck with all your changes, they sound like healthy ones!

  3. Love and Respect is one of my favorite books. I know it leans to the man's side a little bit, but it overall, and it's basic principals have shaped my marriage and I think it's one of the reasons we have such a good one! Love it.

  4. 1. Diet is on our radar too. Husband is doing Dukan right now, and I am trying SO freaking hard to give up caffeine. Really, I am trying! We're moving to all organic and less processed as well.

    2. I am doing a year long Bible study at Church with the same goal...we are using Meet the Bible. So far it is awesome and I am loving it. Just in case you want to check it out as an option - http://www.amazon.com/Meet-Bible-Panorama-Readings-Reflections/dp/0310243033/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327433807&sr=8-1

  5. Look forward to reading about your new diet. With the new year, I started to eat more clean. It's been a lot easier than I thought...with the exception of grabbing lunch or dinner with friends. I also gave up sugar. That one hasn't been as easy :)!

  6. Love this post and am just feeling happy for you today. You sound settled and on a mission! Prayers for your journey!

  7. Sounds like it's going to be a GOOD year!

  8. I'm excited about your life's journey in 2012. I think these are great new ventures...now we also both need to open our sewing machines out of the boxes and learn how to sew! That could be called---for the hands :)

  9. I have some crazy beliefs about food, but I REALLY do believe that it effects EVERYTHING. There is a book called "the Hallelujah diet" that explains the science behind all of this and it is scripture based. I highly recommend that in your fertility quest! Its very informative. I also suggest as few meats as possible, red meat especially!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
