It’s Monday and a new month which means I have several things going on today. Today I get to create some new goals for the month of July. I also get to plan a weeks worth of healthy and delicious meals for my family and choose a new book or two to read for July.
In January I challenged myself to read at least one book per month in 2012. So far, I’ve been reading between one and three books each month. In June I read these two and I will share a review of them along with my July choices in a few days. You can always see which books I’ve read this year by checking out the Amazon book widget on the bottom right side of my blog.
In addition to reading goals, I have set some July goals in several other areas as well.
- Be consistent in menu planning and grocery shopping.
- Let the children help with house upkeep while they are out of school for the summer.
- Read with the children.
- Plan weekly outdoor activities for the kids that allow me to work while they play.
- Be available.
- Read my bible daily.
- Pray for and with family and friends.
- Pray daily with my husband.

- Look for opportunities to be a blessing to others.
