Well, here I am:  blogging!  And (gasp) even with a picture this time!  🙂

Right after I wrote about not making unrealistic goals, a friend of mine sent me a text that included only a website and with that, I was inspired to add another -hopefully obtainable – goal to my list (even though it feels daunting). is a blog by Ann Voskamp and beware that if you read the January 4th post, you may be inspired to add another thing to you day too.  That sounds so negative doesn’t it?  Adding another thing – maybe stress the “Adding” part instead of the “another” part….sound better?  maybe?

So, this year I plan to join with thousands of Miss Voskamp’s readers and attempt to memorize some scripture.  I have not attempted to memorize scripture or really anything else, besides maybe a little music, since I was in High School, so this is going to take a lot of intentional and focused practice.  I hope that by the end I will have memorized a little, if not all of Romans 1, 8 and 12.

This is my start –

romans project


That, my friends is a whiteboard on my kitchen wall (husband’s brilliant idea) – I plan to write the verses of the week on that board along with the dinner menus, or store needs.  I am in the kitchen a lot during the day – making coffee, breakfast for kids, more coffee, lunches, dinner – cookies, coffee….you see how this goes – and I think it will be the place I am most likely to see and practice these verses.

What do you think?  Want to join me?
