New Year, New Heart

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" 
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

I've written before that I'm a list-maker.  I impose my love of organization upon my children at every opportunity.  So when I came across this New Year's printable on Pinterest, I printed off two copies: one for Maddie to complete herself, and one for Ava and I to complete together.  I also found one for adults, which Todd and I will be sitting down (hopefully together!) to complete very soon.  

It's my desire to help mark the years not only by how much the kids have grown, but also by what they've learned.  In this way I hope to develop lifelong learners at home, just as I hope to develop lifelong learners among my students at school.



The new year is an important time to remind ourselves that Christ makes all things new.  No matter how deeply lost, alone, or unlovable you feel, Christ can do amazing things with an open heart.  If you desire change, pray about it.  Write down your deepest desire somewhere you'll see it.  Stick it in your Bible.  Read your Bible.  Then begin to act on it.  And keep praying about it.  

Happy New Year!
