Life Plan 2011

I read a series of blog posts from Ron Edmondson, pastor @ Grace Community Church in Tennessee, about creating a Life Plan for the New Year.  That blog series can be found @ his blog.  The link goes to Part 5 but that post does contain links the first 4 parts as well.  One suggestion for the life plan was to put it on a blog once it was completed so that there is a form of accountability as people will be able to read it and assist you with staying accountable to that plan.  And then once a goal has been reached: Celebrate!!!!!

So here’s my 2011 Life Plan:

1) Start process of losing 30 lbs (my post baby belly and the baby is 8 yrs old) by:

  • Drinking more water (Mark Hall of Casting Crowns has a resolution for drinking more water that I’m a part of)
  • Eating more Fruits and Veggies
  • Watching Sodium intake
  • find ways to exercise and make time for it (possibly Tues, Thurs, and Sat.)
  • Get plenty of sleep

2) Finish Bible study on Discipleship and get it in a rough edit form for a book/study:

  • on non-homework day (finishing up grad school in April) read Bible verses on discipleship
  • read ancillary sources related to the particular verse(s)
  • organize thoughts using Evernote & Onenote
  • Start getting a format into Word
  • get info reviewed by pastoral friends
  • get some of that info on blog weekly (possibly starting in Feb)

3) Improve communication skills through better articulation of feelings & better enunciation by:

  • practice speaking out loud when alone
  • practice talking slower, practice enunciation
  • work on expressing feelings while staying in control

4) Read more of the Bible on a consistent basis for change (not just to finish the Bible) by:

  • praying before reading
  • remembering to read for change through taking notes & asking How It applies
  • reading in mornings before 7:30 am
  • praying @ end including requests @ this point

As for celebrating (Part 5 of the plan)- I hopefully will have a job when these goals are accomplished so that I can celebrate in style (bargain shopping for clothes that fit and a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant which happens to serve natural/organic food).


Join me in creating a Life Plan (almost in place of a New Year’s Resolution) to see how you can better yourself and serve God better this year.
