  1. I am so glad you posted this – I could have written word for word what you wrote :(. I am going to restart my bullet journal today and reset on my goals – thanks for the encouragement to do just that.

  2. I love your material and ordered Watching Jesus the first day I saw it. Also purchased the original 15 books together as a set. I took a break with my blog and podcast due to 2 deaths in the family and want to begin with the Gospel of Matthew when I re-start next week.
    Wanted to mention I grew up with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn so didn’t really understand it at my age then. Still love it. I also seldom read novels.
    Was going through old papers and found an article by Daniel Wychor dated 10/4/2008. Website was Christian Weight Loss. Title was 6 words that stopped him from overeating. “Thank you, Lord, for this nourishment.” He had begged God for help. He was to say those words before every bite. I told someone else and they found a Youtube interview with him as the topic.
    I tried this myself . . it surprised me how often I ‘forgot’ to do it. Still working on it.
    Your video with your sister-in-law about bullet-journaling for prayer caused me to make one for myself. I watched that video 3 times. You are doing a great job . . thank you!! Joyce

  3. I didn’t make any goals for this year, other than to study my Bible every day. This is a good goal, and I’ve kept it up and enjoy it, in part because of your Journal and Doodle Studies. I’ve had trouble memorizing verses, finding a way that works for me. I was able to memorize The Lord’s Prayer by writing it down and posting it by the kitchen and bathroom sinks. Every time I washed my hands, I recited The Lord’s Prayer. I did this last year, 2020, so you know how often we washed our hands! I’m going to try a Scripture Memory Box, so thank you for that. I have read “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” a number of times and I love it! I hope you’ll get to it. Last thing – I’m so glad you included having friends and family for dinner!

  4. Kari, WOW! You’re amazing and so very real. Thanks so much for that!
    Goals are a struggle for me, weight loss goals especially. Little “cheats” have helped me. What I call cheats are things that aren’t formal exercise but help me easily burn a few extra cals. For example, if you have stairs, whenever you have to go up or downstairs for something, just do it twice (the walking up and down part). Each time you use the bathroom, do 2-5 squats (after is easier than before). Also, you can do arm stretches while you make “progress” in the bathroom. Finally, dancing is great exercise. House cleaning tunes on blast! 🙂
    Thanks for all you do!
