My Word for 2013

Happy new year!  I hope you have a great year.

My word for 2013 is...................................................................................FAITH.

My words from 2011 and 2012.

For the past two years I've picked a word at the beginning of each year to "cast a vision of the person you want to be in"  the next year.  (K-Love website)

Our family will experience some big changes this year- potentially.

  • In the summer we will move back to Germany after being in the States for three years.
  • We may have our second oldest driving with a learner's permit before we leave.
  • For the past year, we've been working on adopting so it's possible we could increase the size of our family.
  • Our oldest will apply for colleges in the fall!   

Recently I've seen a few movies that make me think about important our faith is.  A line in one of them, Life of Pi,  went something like this..."You don't really know God until He has tested your faith."   

Some things I do are relatively easy for me to do.  If I took some of those endeavors to the next level, that might require FAITH! 

What are you doing that is easy?  What would it take to do something similar, but having faith to take it to the next level,  and get to know God better? Or, what are you already doing that requires faith?  I bet some of you have an enormous list! 



  1. I can't bear the thought of your return to Germany bcz we are too far apart as it is now! I pray that your faith will light the path of many in the new year. Blessings!

  2. My words are Be still and listen!

    2012 was Trust
    2011 was Surrender

    I try to think of each of them at times.

  3. Wow! Germany!! How exciting! Please give my love to your wonderful kids!
