3 Numbers That Will Forever Transform Your Date Nights

This last fall my hubby and I’s small group completed a marriage study with a retired pastor and his wife.  It was a wonderful time of renewal, awakening, and marriage building.  I won’t lie.  There were times of real stress as it brought some marriage challenges to the forefront, but it did help Goose and I to understand each other better, for which I am very thankful.

One of the biggest takeaways I gathered from the entire series, I want to share with you today in hopes that it will help build your marriage also.  It involves 3 numbers that can transform your date nights for the better, if you will let them.  I won’t say these numbers will be easy to ask or discuss, but the results can have an amazing impact on your marriage.

2016 Deep Cleaning Schedule Printable

You ever feel overwhelmed by everything you want to get done or everything on your cleaning list?  Count me among the many.

I’m tired of being overwhelmed, and I’m ready for a change.  Thus, this year I have decided to divide up some rather heavy duty tasks into bite-size pieces.  Blogging tasks.  Business tasks.  Home keeping tasks.  EVEN my deep cleaning schedule.

This year instead of knocking it out all at once, I’m going to try deep cleaning ONE PROJECT A WEEK.  That’s it.  One.

You game to try with me?  Download my 2016 Deep Cleaning Schedule, and make it your own.

A New Year, A New Verse, and New Goals

January!  I love January.  I love the opportunity it brings to plan, restart, reset, and focus on new goals and initiatives.  This year is no exception.  Last year I shared how I was starting something new by going beyond one word thinking and extending it to one VERSE thinking.  This year I plan to continue that focus as well as find goals that support my one word and one verse.  So, without further ado, here’s my 2016 plan of action.

This year I plan to focus my energies with the help of ONE verse, ONE word, and a few fine tuned goals. In short, here is my 2016 plan of action!

For The Wife Who Doesn't Feel Sexy

Wow.  If you are even slightly intrigued by the title of this book you NEED to read this article.  A great read and such an encouragement.  Thank you Aimee for being so vulnerable.  I can guarantee this post will reach many hearts.

24 Types of Books I Hope to Read This Year

Every year I look over my list of books I want to read on Amazon and Pinterest as well as those that I haven’t yet read on my bookshelf to compile a hopeful reading list for the upcoming year.  Last year I shared my top 10 list, many of which turned out to be AMAZING books, but this year I’ve decided to try something a little different.  Instead of just reading any type of book on my wish list (which usually consists of Christian non-fiction and time management books), I am going to strive to read DIFFERENT TYPES of books this year as a means to expand my topic knowledge and better understand those around me.

You interested in joining me?

Introduction
Kathy Gossen seeks to encourage others to live for Jesus in the everyday no matter what the occasion.  She is frequently found living out this motto as she organizes her closets for the twentieth time, prepares homeschool lesson plans for two wiggly worms, cooks for a picky eater (aka her husband), or learns how to become a better blogger.  In the end she just prays that her life song sings of love for her Lord, and she hopes to encourage others along the way in her writings on Cornerstone Confessions.  

Kathy has also served as the Executive Director and non-profit founder of Central Oklahoma Homeschool Choirs, a 5-choir choral program providing a quality choral education to over 170 area homeschool students ages 5-18.  As ED of COHC, she also coordinated the Oklahoma Homeschool Choral Fest, a solo and ensemble and large group choral event for all Oklahoma homeschool students ages 8-18 led under the direction of a nationally known clinician.  While she no longer serves the choirs as ED so she can spend more time with her family, she continues to support the choirs as their web designer.

In her spare time, Kathy serves as a consultant for Usborne Books and More.  She loves getting families excited about reading through the sharing of amazing children's books.  Feel free to contact her to schedule  an Usborne Facebook party and earn some amazing FREE books for your family too!
