HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 

I can't believe 2012 is here. This year is going to be awesome...I can just feel it. 2011 brought us so many changes and so many blessings --- but it was quite crazy!! I am so looking forward to starting this year with celebrating my commitment to Mark before all of our friends and family. AND I'm even more excited to start settling into our new lives together. As I said before, I just know this is going to be an awesome year and I'm thanking God in advance for what He is going to do!


With the new year comes resolutions, and my amazing parents gave us a list of resolutions for Men and Women. We thought they were so awesome, that I wanted to share! (PS: I mean no copyright infringement from wherever my parents found these lists!)

The Resolution for Women

I do solemnly resolve before God to embrace my current season of life and live with a spirit of contentment.

I will champion God's model for womanhood and teach it to my (future) children.

I will celebrate my God-given uniqueness and the distinctions He has placed in others.

I will live as a woman answerable to God and faithfully committed to His Word.

I will seek to devote the best of myself to the primary roles God has entrusted to me.

I will be quick to listen, slow to speak, and esteem others more highly than myself.

I will forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.

I will not tolerate evil influences in myself or my home but will embrace a life of purity.

I will pursue justice, love mercy, and extend compassion toward others.

I will be faithful to my husband and honor him in my conduct and in my conversations, and will aspire to be a suitable partner to help him reach his God-given potential.

I will teach my (future) children to love God, respect authority and live responsibly.

I will cultivate a peaceful home where God's presence is sensed.

I will make today's decisions with tomorrow's impact in mind and consider my current choices in light of future generations.

I will courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His glory.

The Resolution for Men

I do solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my (future) children.

I will love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the spiritual leader of the home.

I will be faithful to my wife, to love and honor her, and be willing to lay down my life for her as Jesus Christ did for me.

I will bless my (future) children and teach them to love God with all of their hearts, all of their minds, and all of their strength.

I will train them to honor authority and live responsibly.

I will confront evil, pursue justice, and love mercy.

I will pray for others and treat them with kindness, respect, and compassion.

I will work diligently to provide for the needs of my family.

I will forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.

I will learn from my mistakes, repent of my sins, and walk with integrity as a man answerable to God.

I will seek to honor God, be faithful to His church, obey His Word, and do His will.

I will courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His glory.



Talk about meaningful resolutions, huh?
