My one word for 2014 was Quiet. Over the past year, I have learned how to exhale, sit with a cup of tea, and just be for a moment. Quiet was exactly what I needed.

This year, what I need more than anything is grace.

I’m tired of beating myself up at the end of the day over mommy-guilt. I’m weary of negative self-talk. I can’t spend another minute second-guessing every decision I’ve ever made.

There is a weight that follows me around, and it’s pulling me down.

And so…


My kids, my husband, my friends, my God all pour out endless grace upon me every moment of every day.

This is the year I am determined to accept the gift I have already been given.

    Ohh grace is such a good one. I could use that too- I find that I hold myself to such high standards that I forget to give myself grace. I’m still trying to figure out my 2015 word, but I’m doing the Bible App devo on it so hopefully I’ll know it soon!
