2016 Goals

Hey everybody, seeing as it’s mid-February, I thought I’d share my goals for 2016, now that I know I haven’t completely failed all of them yet. J  I am sure most of you made wonderful New Year resolutions. I did not. I’d tried making New Year resolutions before and usually failed within the first two weeks, so this year I decided to make my goals for the year and I focused on six areas: spiritual, social, financial, intellectual, physical and career.



  • Continue to consistently have Quiet Time and study my bible.
  • Volunteer my time regularly
  • Increase my giving by 3% before the end of the year



  • Be more intentional with my time
  • No cell phone when socializing with family and friends



  • Continue with Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps
  • Save up and pay for my medical coding course
  • Save at least 5% of my down payment goal



  • Read at least one nonfiction book a month



  • Start working out consistently
  • Clean eating 80/20 ( I really wish the percentages were flipped. Why can’t I lose weight from eating ice cream? 🙂 )
  • Maintain my nonsmoker status



  • Enroll in a coding course and begin studying 15 hours a week
  • Determine whether or not I am called to stay another year in South Korea. If not what am I going to do???


Did you make goals or resolutions for 2016?  How are they going?

  1. Good for you! These goals are specific and cover a lot of areas in life. I like the cellphone one. I may have to do that. One goal I have is keeping the Sabbath day. It is hard to do with 6 kids because there is always work to be done. But we do it. And I love it. I don’t check email, or blog. Just engage in family time and Bible and more Jesus!


    • Thanks. The cellphone goal has had one of the biggest impacts and is really great. It’s amazing to realize how much I was using my phone when I was with friends and family. I love the idea of keeping the sabbath. I might have to try that 🙂
