As our family grew and our kids got older that question, and certainly the answer to that question, looked a little different year to year. About ten years ago, our pastor, Dr. Jim Kennington preached a sermon on the importance of setting goals. I remember thinking at the time that it was a strange topic for a sermon. Then he read this verse from Isaiah…
The noble man makes noble plans and by noble deeds he stands.
I remember thinking, “Well of course God would want us to make plans”… the key is He wants those plans to be noble! I can tell you, I don’t pray nearly enough and I know I need to read my bible more… but since that time I pray more and read more than ever before! More importantly that is just scratching the surface of how God has used planning to change my life and my family’s life.
So, what would make 2017 an amazing year for your family? We know one thing is to plan… to prepare for the New Year. One person who was critical in our transition from Young Life staff to Axis Ministries was best-selling author, Michael Hyatt. I’ve grown to appreciate and trust his voice, especially as it relates to successful living. He understands that an amazing 2017 goes way beyond doing well in your career. He’s a Christian man with a great marriage and wonderful kids.
