One Word

This year, instead of a list of resolutions…and let’s be real, I usually forget about them in a month…so, I am choosing ONE WORD. Each month I will revisit this word, and create an action plan based on it. I guess it helps to have a little accountability here in the blogosphere…so thanks for keeping up with me!

Intentional. Doing the things that matter most. Being intentional with my time, our money, my thoughts, with other people, and with my time with the Lord. Doing it all for Him.

Colossians 3:23-24 is what I am standing on this year.

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

My action plan to go with “Intentional”:
January–lose 7 pounds. I am working towards this goal a little bit every day. I chose this as my goal to hopefully give my reproductive system a jump start so that we can possibly have a baby. As many of you know, we have tried for 2 years to have children…and we have not succeeded. My doctors are pretty sure it is because I do not have a regular system. Praying for a jump start to help move things along…and then we will revisit this in February. Pray with me about this. It is very difficult for my body to lose weight…any and all advice would be appreciated!

What is your one word? I’d love to know what you are focusing on this year and where the Lord is taking you! Follow along at to see other’s “one words”.

Happy 2014! It is going to be a good year, I just know it!

  1. Hey girl, its Jessica Smith. I had the same problem, not sure if your system is off because of polycystic ovaries but I had to lose a little weight too before I got pregnant for the same reason. Because of the PCO I don't have regular periods on my own and never have. We did IUI but the dr said people with PCO have a easier time if they can get their weight in check before hand, so I did (it was really hard though… I ate a lot of salad, which I do not like!) 🙂 Whichever route you are going I wish you the best blessings and the best of luck with the weight loss. You can do it!!!
