Book of Me: My Word for the Year

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Hi there!

I'm participating in a Book of Me challenge on

I've been wanting to do a BOM for a long time, and have lots of years prior to 2014 that I will have to fill in, but I wanted to start this year right, by staying on track with BOM entries.

As my husband and I have been evaluating our past, and seeking God for direction for our future, I began asking the Lord for a word that I should focus my attention on for this year.  At first, I was really just desiring it, not whole heartedly seeking God for it.

Then I read a post on my friend Kelly's blog at Sandcastle Stamper.  I was thrilled to see that she had the same desire, and already had her word for the year.  With a yearning to have a focus, grounding point, and something for which I could be accountable to myself, my husband and my Master, I sat right there at my desk and sincerely asked, "God, what's my word for this year?",  

Within seconds I had my answer:

The first layout in my BOM for 2014.

  1. Wonderful Post and wonderful page.

  2. SO well designed and I love the quotes. Very inspiring, Elizabeth. This is something like a Vision Board, isn't it?
    The background paper is awesome and so is the colour combo. Something about green brown and cream that is always so lovely.

    Keep scrapping,
