Julie directed me to these questions at the Revive our Hearts website, and since they're so great, I thought I'd join in....

1. What's one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?
truly get into the Word on a daily basis

provide the funds for our new church building

3. What's the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year?
start getting up earlier in the morning--time to spend with God and pray, wake up mind and body, and set daily to-do list

4. In which spiritual discipline do you most want to make progress this year, and what will you do about it?
daily Bible reading--find a reading plan, decide on a start date, and record read passages in daily planner

5. What is the single biggest time-waster in your life, and what will you do about it this year?

10. What single thing that you plan to do this year will matter most in ten years? In eternity?

There are twenty-one more challenging questions, but those were the primary ten. I'd LOVE to hear your answers too! So do, take a few minutes to think through what you really want this year to be about, and let me know if you have something posted!
