Starting off the new year with goal setting is our favorite way to start the year! This helps us to set up ourselves, and our kids, to accomplish things! We also use the goal setting time to pause and reflect on the great, and hard things, from the year before. We are able to give thanks to God for answering specific prayers, which is always a great thing!
