Happy new year!
As a new year starts, it is the best time to start new habits and set new goals. In our family, we have established a few habits which we do every start of the year. It has helped us last year and we are doing it again this year.
Family meeting. We set a day and talk about what we liked about the year that has passed, what we wished we had done and how we can learn from our mistakes. We set goals for each person and family goals.
Virtues. We talk about what virtues we want our family to grow in this year and how we can achieve our goal. We believe that we should continue to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ individually, grow in thankfulness and serve each other more.
Finances. We all agreed that we need to save individually and be good stewards of the blessings that God has given us.
Family activities. We need to increase our activities as a family. Movie watching, field trips, games together, project making or anything that can help us bond more and know each other better as a family.
I am grateful for the new year that God has blessed us with. I pray that we will accomplish all that God wants to do through us and in us this 2014.
