Year In Review Guide #2020Edition
I love doing end of the year reviews. It helps me see the big picture of what God did as well as is a fun inventory to watch your life evolve throughout time. I always carve out about 30-60 min the last week of December to "Review/Reflect" and "Pray/Plan". Especially with a year like this one, it's good to take time to pause, celebrate, grieve, process, and take time to see the goodness of God. Here's my outline - use as little or as much as you'd like. Even though I'm a paper gal, I do my reviews digitally, so I can have them all in one folder to look back on. My mom set aside a special family journal with our answers as children, which is really fun to look back on. This is also a really great date-night activity for couples, or roommates to go through together. So, grab a cup of tea or coffee, and let's answer some of these questions together.

PRAY AND PLAN *** This segment is MUCH more open ended. I usually pray and jot down a few thoughts, words, or scriptures the Lord gives me. Whether 1 min or 1 hour, take some time to talk and listen to The Lord about what is on His heart for your 2021 season.
Questions to think about: 1. How are you going to prioritize God's Word this year? 2. What church are you going to commit to this year? 3. What does prioritizing your family look like this year? 4. Do you have a giving/savings goal? 5. What is one project you'd like to complete? 6. What does "A healthier you look like?" What steps do you need to take to become him/her? 7. List out people/places you'd like to visit this year. 8. What does rest look like for you this year? 9. What are you saying "no" to this year? 10. What are you saying "yes" to this year?
