Resolution Update // July 2017

Seven down, five to go.

ORGANIZATION

Use my Prayerful Planner every day I may not decorate its pages beautifully or write long, eloquent prayers every single day, but I love this planner and would be lost without it. Things are really busy at church (in the greatest possible Kingdom-building way possible) so keeping myself organized is a must.
Decorate my office (paint, hang diploma, arrange bookshelves, etc.) – I still haven’t finished my office. My big, ugly desk is still in the middle of the space and the walls are blank. I haven’t done anything with the closets or curtains either. I need a fairy godmother who specializes in interior design to complete this mess for me!!!!!!
Hire a housekeeper for deep cleaning (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12) – Miss A didn’t clean in July but I’m on the schedule in August. Yeah!!!!

Unsubscribe from excessive blogs, websites, newsletters, etc.
Clean email inbox every Thursday
Organize photos and graphics on my laptop

DISCIPLESHIP

Read the Bible in a year (using 5-day method and the Slacker’s Plan)Lost cause, for real.
Write a prayer or reflection in a daily journal At the beginning of July, I bought a faith planner for the specific purpose of writing Scripture. I wrote a verse or passage and personal notes 12 out of 31 days. I definitely like having a place to combine Bible study and reflections. 
Continue monthly tithe to church (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12) – Keep on keeping on!
