21 Days to Start off the New Year

This time of year, most of us tend to think...ok, starting January 1st, I'm going to loose ______ pounds, eat healthier, take time for _______, do this and that.  I think that there is nothing wrong in any of those things, especially in setting goals for yourself.  That is why I wanted to pose a 21 day challenge that we could get started together as a community.  Doesn't that sound like a fun way to start off the new year.  We can all do 21 days...that is only 3 weeks!

First and foremost, to start off our new year, we need to seek our Lord.  This past fall, I went through the book How to Pray in 28 Days by Kay Arther.  I highly suggest it if you have never read it.  It had me thinking of the importance for us to pray, pray specifically, pray correctly, and pray together as believers.  I have formed a group through youversion.com that I would like you all to be a part of.  It will include 21 days of scripture that focuses on prayer, whether through examples or by what Christ has to say about prayer.  I can't think of a better way to bring in 2012 than through praying specifically for our walks with Christ, our family, our friends, our nation, and for others to know Him.

Secondly, lets get our bodies in check, physically and nutritionally.  I'm not asking you to loose a pound or stop eating _______, but to serve the Lord in this aspect of your life.  Whether you are a mom, sister, friend, wife or whatever, we all have a reason to live a healthy lifestyle.  We will be using myfitnesspal.com.  You can set your own goals whatever they may be and make it a priority to be healthy. *If you are pregnant or just had a baby you can still participate and be healthy, but obviously what doctor says comes first.  You can still be included in the drawing at the end of the challenge.  The most important thing for you right now may just be to pray for that sweet new baby.

Who knows maybe we will be one strong accountability community!!!

Ok...so you are in right??? 

All you need to do is leave a comment including your name and email address.  Feel free to list this on your blog as well to get others involved.  No matter where you are in life, lets bring in the New Year together after all it is only 21 days :).   I will send you all an email on December 31st with links to join our groups.   Woohoo!
