It's a new year and I love the week leading up to the first of the year. It is a week of anticipating how I can do things better, dream about what I would like to accomplish, and intentionally get excited about all that God has planned for my family and me for 2017. I use the first 21 days of January starting January 6 to fast and pray and get Godly direction for the new year. During this time, God will usually amplify a word or two and highlight a specific scripture that I know I will be coming back to again and again in the coming year.
Several years ago I started sitting our children down at the family table and making our children a New Year's Resolution template. I want them involved in new year goals. I want them to see the new year as a way to step back, look at their accomplishments in the past year or areas they need to focus on improving and pray and work towards those goals in the new year. Their growth spiritually, mentally, and physically not only benefits them but our family as well.
Feel free to download our simple New Year's Resolution Template to use at your home with your children. You can modify for adults too :) I would love to hear if you are downloading the template and using them with your children. Comment below and let me know! Also, please feel free to share using the facebook and tweet button below for others to download as well.
May God bless you and your family in abundance in 2017.

Who am I? Galatians 2:20 does a great job of summing up who I am. My life is His, the One who loves me and gave Himself for me . In return, I want to be all He wants me to be and do all He wants me to do on this side of Heaven.
