31 Days 2013 :: Thrive

Thrive.  Webster defines it three ways:

1. to grow vigorously
2. to gain in wealth or possessions
3. to progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances

For the next 31 days, I'm going to talk about how to thrive in day-to-day life.  I'm not an expert at this.  In fact, most days I struggle to make any progress.   Nothing is planned out in this series, although I do have some thoughts on what I'd like to share.  I might cover some practical issues, you'll definitely find some soul-bearing thoughts, and above all else, I hope that the words I share will point you to Jesus.

Join me?

  1. I look forward to reading your posts thru this series!

  2. I'm loving all of these posts! So much to think about! I did this exact schedule with both my babies per The Baby Whisperer book, and Judah followed it like a champ. Amelie woke throughout the night until she was eight months old - at which point the pediatrician told me it was my fault for indulging her! She wasn't actually hungry, just waking out of habit. Humbling, but as soon as we started making her cry it out she did great and has been a great sleeper every since!


I would love to get your feedback on any post! Comments make my day, and I will do my best to get back with you as soon as I can. Thanks!
