2017 I'm Ready

So I've had some time to think about goals and what I want to accomplish in 2017.  The New Year always brings about the opportunity for positive change and reflection.
 At the beginning of the month we had unseasonably warm weather and took a family walk at Byer's Woods close to home.  We want to be mindful of our health.  I have also been trying to do yoga 2-4 times a week, but have gotten sick.  I hope to pick it back up when I can do it with out dripping out my nose while trying.
It's fun when the puppies can go too.

 Kota got a vest for Blair as one of his Christmas presents.  He wants to take her duck hunting when he is in Minnesota.  So he puts the vest on her on occasion, it has floats in it like a life jacket.
 She is cute in it anyhow.
 So the goals for the year are to learn new skills some things I have always wanted to, but haven't made time for.  I signed up for a knitting class with my mom.  We are going to go Tuesday to Joann Fabric for a class.  I'm excited.  I am also planning on picking up my genealogy again.  I haven't had much time to work on it the last few years.  I am going to blog hopefully once per week, but no less than twice a month.  I want to have a journal for myself and this is a fun way to do it.  I am going to take more pictures.  I need to start carrying my camera around with me more, but purchased a new SD card and am ready to go.
Spiritually, I have been called into the Young Women's organization.  So I have a lot to learn again.
I have been enjoying working with the girls, it is challenging, but Kayla is good for me to help me bridge some of the gap.
We read D&C 109: 7-9 (And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom, seek learning even by study and also by faith;
 Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God;
 That your incomings may be in the name of the Lord, that your outgoings may be in the name of the Lord, that all your salutations may be in the name of the Lord, with uplifted hands unto the Most High—) as a family at the beginning and decided this was going to be our family scripture for the year.  To build our house and to focus on our personal areas of weakness.  We have been using the ponderize app to read a weekly scripture and think about together.  We each made a list of things we will fast for in the next few months.
2017 is off to a good start.


  1. Awesome starts! You've picked good goals and that scripture is my favorite. I know you can do it! Won't you miss that cute pup when Kota leaves? Maybe not all the fur balls! Well, on to the rest of the year!

  2. I feel lazy now that I read all your goals for the year! I didn't even make one resolution! I think that's awesome that you are always trying to better yourself. That scripture is a perfect family goal. BTW-I was wondering who this girlfriend Blair was for a second, and then I saw that she was a dog haha!

  3. I enjoy reading your posts Stacy. They are very inspiring for me to read my daughter's thoughts, goals and faith. I learn more about you all the time and love the woman you have became. Proud of you babe!
