  1. Love your list – very inspiring!! My one word for 2016 is intentional…..with time, having fun (which I really struggle with) family moments, planning, capturing moments….. it goes on. I also have focused on caring for myself so that I can be refreshed and in a place to serve my family.

  2. This is wonderful, I will definitely be referring back to this one! I love the way you describe wellness—in all of those areas—as a spiritual discipline. I’m also focusing on spiritual discipline this year and it is already having a huge impact on how I feel day to day as well as my general focus. I hope it goes well for both of us! Good luck!

    PS I subscribed a few weeks ago and I really enjoy what you’re doing. I’m working on relaunching my own blog over at (should be fully up and running by next week!). I look forward to getting to know you!

  3. You have a great list of goals! Blessings as you pursue wellness in all four areas. Our family became healthier as we reduced sugar and refined foods in our diet. We learned to appreciate a wider variety of fruits and vegetables.

    My word for 2016 is fruitful–which can only happen with the list that you have for the heart. Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. Our fruitfulness comes from knowing the Word and obeying.

    You are doing a great job as mom in your family. Some days will be better than others but keep on!

    1. Love the word fruitful and the picture it casts when we look to Jesus as being our vine. Thanks for sharing this Carol, blessings to you too this year! 🙂

  4. Well said, Victoria! It can be easy for us at any age to fail to steward the health and well-being we have or desire. I often remind myself as one who has been prone to look after others before myself that what the flight attendant says about oxygen masks during the routine reminders as a flight begins is applicable in every area of my life and not selfish. I need to put on my oxygen mask first and be healthy or I will not be helpful to my family or anyone else. I also will not really be available to the Lord because I will be too tired, too busy, too ill, or too pre-occupied with the things of this world. (Visiting from Arabah Joy as your neighbor.)
    Blessings on your words and plan!

    1. Yes, so true about putting on our own oxygen masks first! Taking care of myself doesn’t always seem as natural as taking care of my children, but my family needs for me to be healthy. It’s so important!
