One month into this, I have to say that I’m enjoying using monthly goals instead of yearly goals. I feel like I’m more focused on what I need to do since there’s a shorter time frame involved.
Here’s how I did with my January goals.
Use the She Reads Truth app for Bible study every day. Done every day last month!
Pray for each of my immediate family members for 5 minutes each weekday (a total of 15 minutes). I fell short with this just one day in January, so I’m considering it done!
Text one friend each week to let them know I am thinking of and praying for them.
Personal Development/Health: Practice the piano for 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week. This is my fail for the month. I followed through during the first week, then gave it up. (Sorry, Mom!) As little of a time commitment as it is, I just wasn’t at all motivated to sit down at the piano.
Focus on growing Pinterest boards and interactions. I finished all my assignments on the monthly planner and saw some growth – especially in blog visitors – from Pinterest.
Here are my goals for February.
Spiritual Growth: Use the She Reads Truth app for Bible study every day.
I’ll continue with this for another month.
Family: Have a date night with John and a one-on-one outing with each of my daughters.
Relationships/Service: Text one friend each week to let them know I am thinking of and praying for them. Also continuing this goal for February.
Personal Development/Health: Make one vegetarian meal each week. Not only will this hopefully help us eat more healthily, it will also save money as I buy a little less meat!
Blog: Focus on growing Pinterest boards and interactions. I’m going to continue with this in February as well.
How are you doing with your goals? Do you work better with long or short term deadlines?
Your goals sound good! I can't think past Thursday when I'm scheduled for an induction, so that's why I only have the one goal for February. If you think about it, will you pray for me? Thanks!

Yes, I will pray!! I've put it on my calendar on my phone – which I check every morning – so that I'll remember to pray specifically that day!! Can't wait to see pictures of this sweet baby!
Thanks, Tracey! I will post pictures on my blog as soon as I can! Just for you!! 🙂
By the way, I can't wait to see her, either. 😉
Nikki, add me to your Thursday Baby Girl Prayer Team!!! 🙂
Excellent goals! I like the monthly ones so much more, as well!
