2011 ~ Year of Grace

2010 was the best year I've had in a very long time.

I'm expecting 2011 to be even better.

I've started preparing a mental list of goals for the year, and plan to get them on paper (and my blog) soon...(maybe I should list that as one of my goals...). As I think about the changes I want to make this year, one of them involves my blog. This blog has been such a blessing to me: writing and sharing my heart, developing a new community of friends, and reading your responses to my thoughts. I want to be more intentional about writing and sharing. One of the changes I want to make involves a theme that has become predominant in my life:

That also happens to be the focus of my church this year, meaning...

for the entire year, my pastor will focus on grace.

I'm so excited, I thought I'd take it to a personal level.

I plan to look for moments of grace in 2011...grace received and grace extended.

On Fridays, my posts will be about personal moments of grace. From time to time, I will have guest bloggers sharing about their personal moments of grace. And if you have a story of grace, I invite you to send me your story at With your permission, your story may show up on my blog!

I hope you'll join me in this series, titled Friday's (Unmerited) Favor.

In addition, I'll occasionally be holding contests with grace-like products as prizes! Be sure to check back later this month for the first contest announcement!
