Since today is Day 1: New Years Resolutions, here is mine:

To live a live of discipline in all areas of my life. 

I want to be disciplined in health so that I can lose 54lbs, keep my Type 2 Diabetes under control, and teach good, healthy eating habits to my children. 

I want to be more disciplined in my spiritual life so that I will read my Bible daily, memorize 24 scripture passages, and submit fully to God's will for my life this year.

 I want to be disciplined financially so that we can be able to purchase our first home, make up an emergency fund, start a retirement and education fund, and be able to live on one income by the end of 2011. 

I want to be disciplined in my personal life so that I make more organized time for blogging, scrapbooking, and reading as my favorite past times.

In my marriage, I want to be more disciplined in 2011, so that I really embrace my role as a Christian wife, and really learn what it is to be fully submissive to my husband as his helpmate!

As a mom, I want 2011 to be my best year ever. I want to be the mom that God wants me to be and I resolve to be open and ready to learn all that He wants to teach be. 

What are your resolutions for this year?
