Goals for March 2014

It's that time of the month again: goal day!!!

I know, I just typed that with way too much enthusiasm for most of you.

Every month, I look back on what went well, what happened, and what didn't happen in the previous four weeks. I started using Lara Casey's Powersheets {see this post for a full review & explanation} this year, which has really helped me focus on what's important to me on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. {Click here if you're interested in reading my past goal posts.}

These were my goals for February:
  • Marriage
    • Finish studying John with Andrew - still working our way through John. But we did start having weekly date nights where we studied it together, so that's an improvement.
    • Start using the Spouse Tending Sheets from Lara Casey - sort of used these? If you use the spouse tending sheets, I'd love to hear some tips from you!
    • Submit all tax documents to our CPA before the baby comes.
  • Family/Pregnancy
    • Make a birth plan with Andrew and our doula Mandy - I know God has his own plan for this baby. But it was so helpful to think about how I wanted to react to the stress and pain of birth. And it's written and done.
    • Really start shopping for baby stuff - we bought everything we needed! Huge stress reliever!
    • Read Natural Hospital Birth: The Best of Both Worlds by Cynthia Gabriel - awesome book - probably my favorite one so far on birth.
  • Relationships
    • Start using Encouragement Sheets from Powersheets set - kinda used them? Again, tips, anyone?
    • Skype with our advocacy team at least twice this month  - we skyped once - everyone is really busy so I was happy to Skype one time.
    • Continue reading Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands by Paul Tripp  I didn't finish it yet but made a lot of progress.
  • Blog
So that was February! In March, I am being much less ambitious. I will be having a baby, after all. 

Goals for March 2014:
  • Study the book of John with Andrew - perfect for Lent coming up. We're using John: A 12-Week Study by Justin Buzzard.
  • Learn how to breastfeed - I consider this a major goal, once we have the baby! And please share your tips with me!
  • Skype with advocacy team once
  • Set up incoming/expense spreadsheet for the blog- I've recently joined Google Adsense and the Amazon Affiliate program, so I need to start tracking it all.
  • Take one Influence Network class
  • Finish Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands
  • Encourage one person with email, coffee, etc. every week.
I'd love to hear what you're planning for March! What's one thing you'd like to see happen this month?
