2016 Goal List

I have a lot of things I want to accomplish this year. Who seriously doesn’t? The new year brings so much promise and motivation. Everyone loves starting over. Being given a second chance. Doing better than before. 2016 Theme of the Year I’ve seen a ton of bloggers using a one word theme to describe their goals for the coming year. One word themes such as Relax or Pray or Learn. I love that idea. One word to describe it all. So here’s mine: Serve. I have two major goals forView full post »
