What is Next? Part 1

7:59 AM

As we get ready for a new year, we start to plan ahead. We think of the things we want to accomplish and to do in the coming year. I have been doing a lot of thinking and over the next few days, I would like to share some of my plans for the future with you.

One of my goals this year is to connect with other likeminded girls and form some friendships. To that end I am going to be starting a home school Alumni girls group in February. Right now I am working out the details, like where we are going to meet and things like that but I am really excited.

One of the things I hope that this group encourages is other events. Such as opportunities to serve the LORD together as well as just have fun. I want this group to be one that fosters strong, healthy friendships. I would also like it to be a place where someone who is going through a hard time is welcome. I want to be able to encourage girls to higher and better things.

That is my idea. What do you think?

  1. I think that's a great idea Sarah! :D Good for you dear! :D It's always good to form new friendships and also to be a good example to other young ladies. :) I pray that God will bless you in this and He would give you the desires of you heart! :D And that you will find many good, godly, like-minded young ladies to be good friends with. :) Hugs!


  2. My new year resolutions are:

    1) Spending more time with God
    2) Make this year last longer
    3) Eat healthier
    4) Exercise more
    5) Following my dreams
    6) Sharing my faith more often
    7) Doing my very best in school

    That is all, what are yours?


  3. I say awesome! Good, godly friendships are hard to get, and starting a group sounds like a great way to build some. What is Alumni? I've participated in Bright Lights, but have never heard of Alumni before. Is it for older girls? Next fall I'd like to start up a Bible study-type group, such as Bright Lights, but would love to find something that's geared more towards older young women.

  5. Hi Sarah, I wanted to thank you for your comments on my blog and participation in the Bible reading Challenge... I know it will prove to be a blessing for you!

    I think fellowship is a great thing to purpose for 2010-- speaking of, I noticed that you live in TX. I do too. I know its a biiiiiiiig state, but I'm curious which part you're from??

    Many blessings on your 2010!!

  6. Alli,
    I just don't really have a written list yet. But here are a few things I plan to do.

    Read the Bible is six months.
    Work on loving others as Jesus loves them.
    Balancing family and my new ventures.

  7. Miss Serenity,

    Alumni means graduated from. So if I started a home school alumni group I would be starting a group for people who have graduated from their home school high school.

    I am so sorry that I confused you.
