1st Place 4 Health ~ Walking In Grace Week 1


This past Sunday our 1st Place 4 Health group started a new study titled "Walking in Grace".  (click on the title for an Amazon link.)

The first week of every study is a "Welcome" and a time to overview the new book and set goals for the 12 weeks of the study.  Here is an overview of the chapters and my personal goals.

Overview:

Week 1:  Welcome
Week 2:  Gift of Grace
Week 3:  Grace to Be Ourselves
Week 4:  Saved By Grace
Week 5:  Encouragement of Grace
Week 6:  Transformed by Grace
Week 7:  Connected to Grace
Week 8:  Strengthened by Grace
Week 9:  Living in Grace
Week 10:  Responding in Grace
Week 11:  Sharing Grace
Week 12:  Time to Celebrate!

My Goals:

Spiritual:

-Strengthen my relationship with God.
-Maintain a daily Prayer, Bible reading and Study Time.
-Learn the Memory Verse each week and try to remember the address.

Physical:

-Chart my measurements
-Exercise 15 miles or more per week.
-Have at least 3 good eating days per week.  (to start)
-Dare I say lose 15 lbs?  Maybe 10 lbs?

Mental:

-Continue taking my meds and vitamins striving to stay on an even keel.
-Know my limits and try not to overwhelm myself with obligations.
-Exercise my brain muscle with study, reading, blogging & crafting.

Emotional:

-Lean on God for my strength.
-Love on my husband and kids and soak in their love for me.
-Take care of my responsibilities to the best of my ability and feel good about it.

-Have meaningful, loving relationships with my family and church family.
 
I pray for the strength, courage and motivation I'll need to work toward these goals.  I ask that you pray for me also.
 
Here I go!

  1. Your goals sound great and doable! I still need to set mine. I guess it'll take a few weeks til I get used to the study.
