Over the last few months several realizations occurred to me. There was many things I wanted to change about myself or my life. So I began that process. For those that haven’t followed me from the beginning or know me from social media I wanted to introduce myself/ update where I am in life.
So this is me! My name is Ashley, I’m a 28 (almost 29) year old wife and mom. I met my husband 11 years ago in May, and March is our 9 year wedding anniversary. We have three beautiful children, our daughter is 8, and our twin sons are 5. I was a cook for 6 years in a hospital and later high school before I became a mom. After having our daughter I stayed home with her making spare cash by crocheting and baking for others. I’ve always been very crafty and creative so I decided to take those passions and turn it into a business. The business has been a way to provide an income while still being available for my children and husband when needed. We’ve also used the business to help others as well, which is something that is so important to me. Goals are much bigger for this year and pray that it continues to grow. I feel like there is so much more I could probably say but I better be getting out the door to go get the kids from school. So be watching for a follow up post, and feel free to introduce yourself!
There is just something about the words New Years Resolutions that rub me the wrong way. Maybe because they often seem to be half hearted promises, and by February most people completely forget them. I’m a list maker, setting goals I can check off my list. I also like to dig a little deeper than the obvious things I need to change. Do I need to eat better, of course I do. Do I need to exercise more? Of course, it has been replaced with work over the last few months.
This year I want to continue to grow closer as a family. We have movie and game nights, go for walks on nice nights already but I want to sit down with the kids and see if they think we can improve anywhere. Maybe they have a list of things they would like to do this year as a family. I also want to finish reading the Bible, I began but found it hard to get through the first few books of the bible, so I did some looking and found a guideline helping you figure out in what order you should read all of the books. It has helped a lot and I’ve already begun reading more. I also need to become more faithful in my scripture writing.
Helping others through my business, FamilyNFaith is definitely a bigger goal for the year. I’ve continually felt the need to go on a mission trip in the last few weeks. Research has begun and I’m trying to see when my husband and I can do this in 2018, I hope to make this a yearly thing. I’m hoping this is something the kids will be interested in doing as well. I want to sponsor another child this year as well and donate to different charities.
What are your goals for 2018? I’d love to hear them!
