Time is flying ~ A year in review

Oh goodness. I can hardly believe it is now 2015. Where has the time gone? It's so amazing to look back at the last year of my life and see how much has changed in such a short period of time! In the beginning of last year my family moved from GA to Ky and what a difference that has been. Life has been such a journey for me so far and I can't even begin to imagine what more God has in store for my life. It scares and fascinates me how much can change in a year. I want 2015 to be a year filled up with serving Christ and accomplishing more than I ever have before! I want to stop dreaming and start doing! I thought I'd share a short review of my life last year and a list of my New Year Goals for 2015!

Highlights of 2015:
January- Sold our house in GA, went Snow Tubing
February- Moved to KY, served at a Valentine's banquet.
March- Started writing a new book (The Pegasus), attended Clay's Mill Baptist church's teen conference
April- I started a diet and began to loose weight. Our church had our annual missions conference
May- Had Old- fashioned Sunday at my church
June- My first year at Circle C baptist ranch for camp! HAD A BLAST!
July- Got to work in VBS. It was awesome
August- Started working on my church's bus route, and started teaching my very own Sunday School class!
September- Went to back to school camp! It was great. Took a missions trip to Maryland. 
October- Had a fantastic 16th birthday party
November- Had a great Thanksgiving and went Black Friday shopping
December- Had one of the most amazing Decembers of my life! Full of Christmas parties, caroling, and family fun.

God sure blessed me in 2014! Of course there were hard days but when I look back it's amazing how far God has brought me in a year. Hope this year is even better than the last!

As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good I was actually being re-directed to something better.

My goals for 2015:
1) spend more time in my personal walk with God
2) Write MUCH more- finish a book in 2015 and try to get it published =)
3) Get organized-be more clean and tidy
4) Consistency- try to live by a schedule
5) Earn more money & SAVE
6) Apply myself to school & studying
7) Memorize scripture and learn (memorize) Spanish
8) Stay fit. Eat right. Move more.
I hope you all have some motivational New Years goals also! I know we often make these lists and forget about them as the year goes by....I know that last year I had some of the same things on there that I didn't stick to! I hope this year will be different. I have the same amount of goals as I did last year. You can read them here if you'd like! I am happy to say that I did loose weight! I lost 20 pounds last year =) But I hope to accomplish all the things on my list this year.

Hope you all have an amazing year! Stop dreaming and start doing!

Keep shining bright
