Happy 2014! I’m excited to see what God has planned for our family in 2014. I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions this year, but I do have a few goals.
In parenting, I hope to finish strong in homeschooling the twins. My goal is to teach them to read before they start Kindergarten next year. I fell in love with the written word long ago and hope I can pass that passion onto my boys.
In spiritual matters, I have one goal – to abide. In 2013, our family made many investments in Christ’s kingdom.
And while they were all good and worthy endeavors, I realize that I wasn’t fully tuned into Him for many of them. This year, I hope to abide deeply in Him by abiding in His Word.
To keep me accountable in this area, I solicited the help of a friend I’m mentoring and her momma. We are memorizing 1 Cor. 13 together and will meet each week to recite our part of the passage and discuss it.
I’m calling it my Abide Group. Wanna join?
Form your own Abide Group
Here’s how it works: Grab a friend, coworker, neighbor, or a mentor/mentee.
Download and print a set of these free printable Scripture cards for each person in your group. (Click the image to download the printable PDF).
Meet once a week to talk about it. That’s it! Pretty easy, huh?
If you don’t have anyone to join you, then tackle these by yourself. You can check-in on the Hive Resources Facebook Page and post a status report or a question about one of the verses!
Here’s our schedule:
Week 1 (Jan. 6): 1 Cor. 13:1-3
Week 2 (Jan. 13): 1 Cor. 13:4-7
Week 3 (Jan. 20): 1 Cor. 13:8-10
Week 4 (Jan. 27): 1 Cor. 13:11-13
It’s my personal hope that by the time Valentine’s gets here, my heart will be saturated in Christ-like love. I don’t know about you, but I need that kind of help as a mom and wife!
I’m ready to Abide in Him 2014! Are you? Leave me a comment if you’re in! We’ll lift each other up!
