I’m pretty excited to have stumbled across my word for the year. I wasn’t even going to do it, and then it just hit me.

The word is Boldness! 

And if I’m allowed two words, it would be Boldness + Grace.

I can be timid in nature. Scared to speak up. Scared of all the people online who hate what I stand for. I feel like I’ve grown quiet the last few years out of fatigue. I’m ready for 2020 to be the year I boldly proclaim truth again.

Even just to say there is such a thing as truth is controversial these days. People like to say there is no hard truth, that anything goes. I’m not going to let myself be wooed to sleep and fall into that lie.

I hope you join me this year in standing up for truth. Let’s just make sure it’s the truth that needs to be shared, and not legalistic or pharisaical half-truths.

Expect to see more posts this year on:

Godly womanhood

What loving, biblical parenting should look like.

How to raise our children to stand firm against the ever changing world.

And even a few posts on marriage, because I feel like Sean and I are blessed with a good marriage and would love to share more of my thoughts on how we make it work.

Did you pick a word for the year? I would love to hear what it is!

In other news…here are a few other changes coming to the blog this year. 

I’m stopping Modest Monday. At least for awhile. It’s been a long time in coming. For many different reasons I just don’t feel like I can keep up with it.

That’s not to say that all outfit posts will disappear. I would rather be able to put together a nice outfit and share actual outfit posts with shopping tips, rather than just scrambling to put together another weekly post.

This year I’m going to focus on quality of posts versus hitting publish just to get something new out. I want to serve you all in the best way I possibly can. Sean and I are working on setting better work hours for me, so I’m going to try and see if that helps me get more done.

Expect more on natural health, more DIY stuff, and more homeschooling posts!

I’m super excited for a new year! I love fresh starts!

9 Comments on My Word of the Year for 2020!

  1. I am looking forward to all of these topics! You have been such an encouragement and inspiration through the years. I found you in 2010, when we had my first daughter and went searching for how to teach her modesty. I have appreciated your honesty, thank you for all you do!

    We chose the word “Proactive”, because we want to live our lives more proactive rather than reactive.

  2. My word for the year is BRAVE. Because I think I need to be brave to accomplish the things I hope to accomplish this year.

  3. How exciting for you! My words are wisdom and change. I am starting this new year with a wonderful wisdom challenge based on Proverbs on Facebook that has some great speakers who I really respect. So I’m working on that word already. The change, I believe, concerns a lot of things in my life that I’m fervently praying will change. Some issues among my children, and my husband’s job being in the same place we live, and for us to live in our own home in a place that we love. I am excited to see God work on the words He gave me for this year.

  4. Great post! I love your word. If I had to pick a word for this new year, it would be health. Although it is a very general word, I feel that it encompasses a lot of what I want to accomplish this year. I am trying to switch up our cleaning products and modify our meals just a tad bit to make our family a little healthier. We’re at a great spot already, but there can always be room for improvement. I really like how you talk about God and his word. There is no shame in that whatsoever. Seeking the truth is a priority in our family too.

  5. My word for the year is ‘Joy’ and I know I will experience it in all its entirety. I intend to be intentional about it too this year.

  6. You look so beautiful without makeup! My word this year is PEACE and ENGAGED. I need to practice letting the peace of God rule in my heart and even though I’m home schooling my children all day, sometimes I escape through various means. While a little escape is at times healthy, I want to engage each day in full and really connect deeply with my children!
