A new year is only days away. A lot of people like to look at the new year as a to start anew. With that comes resolutions and thoughts of change. I believe thoughts of change and goal creation is good for individuals as well as for a family.
A couple months ago,my husband and I sat down to discuss what we were looking to do individually in the next year and a half. We also discussed what we wanted to accomplish as a family. Instead of writing down our thoughts, we dug out some old magazines, glue sticks and scissors and created a vision board. We would like to take a road trip vacation within the next year. I found pictures of ideal destinations, cut them out and glued them to a poster board. We planned the entire year on the board and are using it as a visual reminder of what we are collectively working towards.
I challenge you to sit down with your spouse and/or children to discuss goals that you can create and reach towards in 2015.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Set Goals for Your Children
Potty train the little one.
Teach a new language.
Get your child to like new foods.
Prepare your toddler for reading.
Discuss Your Financial Goals
Do you have a certain amount you want to save?
Are you looking to find ways to increase your income?
How can you change your spending habits?
Plan Your Business Goals
Brainstorm and come up with ideas.
Find a mentor.
Specify the number of clients you want to obtain.
General Family Goals

Make your goals and pray over them, asking God to lead you so that you make the best decisions for yourself and family. Not sure how to follow God’s leading? Read this article from Charisma Magazine.
