2020 Words of the year Every year for the past 4-5 years I have come up with a word. A word to focus my heart on, a word to grow in. I realized when preparing for 2020 that my words are usually verbs. As I reflected on that I came to a realization that has developed into my anthem for 2020. You see, the verbs I was choosing were reflective of my actions, what I could be doing. But as I prepared for the coming year I realized that this year my focus needs to be totally different. The power of the Gospel that it's really not about us, its about Jesus and what HE did for US. Not the other way around. And so I began to pray and read scripture that pointed me towards that.

She said something along the lines of “we should all use our strengths”. I wrestled with that for a while and came out with what I believe God needed me to take from it. First, God gave me talents, and wants me to use them. “Each o
Moana . My kids do this thing where they get obsessed with a movie and I feel like all I do is watch said movie, on repeat. I surely hope that I am not alone in this, and someone out there feels this pain of being subjected to the same characters and plot until you could act out the movie scene by scene with perfect rendition… awe motherhood. We’ve been on our third round of the Moana obsession recently and last night as I was cooking dinner I feel like God gave me fresh ears for Moana but more specifically for my children. Hang with me, Moana is such a different princess, or “chief’s daughter”, or whatever she is, and I could spend this whole blog talking about how she doesn’t wait for a prince to rescue her and it would be good, but it’s also already been said, so that’s not where this is going. Instead, I want to focus on her identity. Me and Lisa- cause were on a first name basis I just finished reading “Without Rival” by Lisa Brevere. I also got to hear her spe
