This week is filled with goals and activities.
  1. Finish summer classes (2 more semesters left!)
  2. Volunteer with the international student orientation
  3. Deep clean the apartment before fall classes
  4. Whip up some freezer meals to reduce stress next semester
  5. Start memorizing Bible passages and apply them to my life (1 Corinthians 14:4-8a - Mrs. Ketchup's thoughts, actions, and words will show love)
  6. Continue setting my clock back and performing my morning routine.
So often I find myself setting goals with good intentions, but never complete them.  Thankfully, as I have mentioned in previous posts, I have found some great accountability groups.

The Hello Mornings Challenge will be studying 1 Peter, and to go along with that, I found out about Do Not Depart's 1 Peter 1 Memory Challenge (sign up started today!  Click here to register).  Now I will be studying the Word and hiding it in my heart.

This time around I won't be setting goals and hoping I reach them.  I know they are attainable, especially as I surround myself with Christian women who are striving for the same things.  I am not alone.

I know that I have been providing a lot of links to challenges and what not lately, so expect an original post from me later this week regarding an amazing new recipe I tried and adapted.  In addition, Mr. Ketchup and I start volunteering for international orientation events beginning this Friday, so I will be posting in the very near future about ways to reach international students.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. You are definitely not alone. So glad you are joining in the 1 Peter 1 memory challenge. I'm excited to have you.

    And you have quite a busy few weeks ahead! :-) But sounds like you're on top of it. May the Lord bless you in all your ventures.

  2. You are going to love memorizing in much joy! Blessings to you!!
