2018 Goals

For the last 3 years, I have been using Powersheets (an intentional goal planner) to plan out and execute my goals for the year. I find the prep work really lays a great foundation to help make goals smarter and more attainable. Since we are relocating this year you’ll notice that a few of my goals revolve around that. Now…

Word of the Year

Happy New Year!!! I am a little behind on my 2018 Powersheets but I finally chose my word of the year: FERVENT.

Parenting Out of Fear

 I’ve made a really eye opening revelation recently. I parent out of fear.

Making Space

I started an intensive bible study last Friday that has already been eye opening. One of the things I read was about in order to to be disciple of Christ you need to be disciplined. It defined discipline in one’s spiritual walk as making space for God to work (at least that’s the gist). When I read that a huge…

Hello

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet. After finishing grad school I’ve had some time to think about goals and what I want for my life and legacy. Spirited Grace is the name I chose because it is something I want to have. The word spirited means full of energy, enthusiasm, and determination. I want to have…
