life as a mom, living it out loud

Well there it is, my word for 2013. I chose this word because it’s a reminder for me that I have a lot of choices to make day in, day out. Choices in how I spend my time, energy and money. Who I spend my time with. How I parent, how I respond to situations, trials, changes. I have the power to choose my actions, my words, my attitude. I also know that my choices influence others, especially those 3 little ones whose eyes are always on me. I don’t want to take my choices lightly. I want to prayerfully choose wisely in 2013.

2012 had some twists and turns for our family. We learned, we grew and we failed at times. But we also experienced great successes and many blessings. For 2013 we are anticipating some big changes on the horizon. Changes that are a little scary but ones we are ready for. There will be many opportunities for me to choose in 2013. My prayer is that I will choose HIS best for me and our family.

So there it is. Do you have a word for 2013?

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. YES. SO, so excited you are back to the blog world. Missed your posts! My word for the year is “Hope” and Brandon’s is “Simplicity”. So I guess technically we have two words :)

  2. Love your word! I can relate to simplicity as well. Brian’s word is “time” so 2 words here as well!
