Well, I am SO excited to finally launch my own website! With its launch this month I am going to start something new. I am so completely encouraged by a beautiful friend of mine and her amazing blog!! Every single month she writes out specific goals for herself and then re-evaluates at the end of the month with how she did meeting her goals. Following her journey has inspired me to do the same. I have found that short-term goal setting teaches you so much and gives your life drive, desire, and fulfillment. It pushes you to grow and gives you a sense of accomplishment as you meet each goal. August was a challenging month for me and so I am ready for a new start and fresh season!! I am excited about what September will bring. I want to be intentional about everything that God is trying to teach me and most of all learn to REST in the presence of my sweet savior. She calls it “Savor September” and through each goal I want to learn how to “savor” the moments of life and to make the most of every opportunity. Life is a gift and full of beauty ready to be savored.
My September goals are…

I am excited about all that God is going to teach me this month. I’m ready to just enjoy His goodness and the little moments He gives us to create memories. I hope you enjoy my new website and I pray it is an encouragement to you!!
