June Goals

Well, we have made it June, friends. I have to say that I was actually pretty nervous about May. It has historically been a month that is chock full of family celebrations. With Rory's thirtieth birthday and ending my time at Downtown Academy added to the mix this year, I just knew I was in for an emotional roller coaster, and I wondered how the month would go. However, it turned out to be a super sweet month. God did so much in my heart and showed me that He is truly taking care of me, our family, and all of the people around me. It was a good month because of our good, good Father.

Here's what I was working towards in May:

finish reading Hands Free Life
goals blog post
begin working on a thirty before 30 bucket list
tie up loose ends for Ror's birthday
figure out summer Bible study/book group

walk twice a week
yoga/Pilates once a week
meal plan
talk to a family member on the phone
talk to a friend on the phone

The Nitty Gritty
As I said above, May was crazy. But it was a good kind of crazy. I was able to finish reading Hands Free Life, which I truly enjoyed and was challenged by in a different way than I thought I would be. I'll be posting a book review soon. I also read Spark Joy and finished reading Steadfast Love. :) I have thought about my thirty before 30 bucket list, but have yet to put pen to paper. Rory's birthday went off without a hitch, and he was genuinely surprised. It was so much fun to celebrate him, and our friends and family were so awesome to make his day so special! This summer, I am really excited to do a study with a few friends of mine from Watkinsville. We are going to make it a supper club of sorts, because food makes everything better. Duh. So I am pumped to be studying Ruth with them using my friend Gretchen's study that she wrote. I've always loved the story of Ruth and am really excited about digging deeper. I didn't do much yoga or Pilates this last month, but I was able to walk more. We found some walking trails near our house, so we are ready to discover each one of them. :)

What I Was Grateful for in May
May was an amazing month. I turned 28 and Rory turned 30. This was my first married birthday, and Rory made it a really sweet time for me. We went kayaking and got dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and then came home to watch a movie and eat popcorn and cake in our new house. :) I got to tell people about my new job at the church. I was able to say goodbye see you later to my sweet kids that I taught for two years and enjoy a insanely emotional and crazy really fun last few weeks with them. The Lord also provided lots of sweet friend time, so that was good for my soul. 

Here's what I am working on in June:

read The Finishing School
establish a new morning routine
finish content for devotional
establish a workout routine
pray for Rory intentionally every day
begin planning anniversary trip
set up my war room

talk to a family member on the phone
talk to a friend on the phone
blog at least twice
write someone a note
recite James 

read the Word
encourage Ror
encourage a friend
encourage a stranger

What are you working towards these days, friends?


  1. I love that one of your goals is to set up a warroom!! I've been thinking about that so much this year! Can't wait to read how it goes! We actually have three new journals coming in the fall and the theme is "spruce up your warroom". 😊

    1. Thanks for stopping by and reading! I am super excited about the war room...although it is probably also going to be a workout room. Ha. :) I can't wait for the new journals!

  2. This is a great list! I enjoy reading to discover how other people organize their morning routine.
