Your Word - 2011 *GIVEAWAY!*


If 2010 had come with a road sign, this would have been it. There were a lot of twists & turns, hills & valleys. Normally I don't make  New Year's resolutions or spend a lot of time pondering what the next year will hold. But after the valley that the last 3 months has been, I have spent a lot of time in prayer and reflection-ready to step out of the periphery of life. My word this year is MORE. I am ready for my life to be more, to give more, train more, love more and just BE more. This year I will not just exist, but I will LIVE.


 
So what is your word? How will it change the way you embrace this year?





Now for the good stuff! We are giving away a Your Word Necklace. You can choose to have it like mine (shown with our "I am not afraid" pendant, or you can choose to have just the customized "Word" charm on your necklace.

  6. My word is "me". As in...
    It's ok to be me. The authentic me ~ I'm good enough.

    Sometimes I forget that, but my goal in 2011 is to remember that I am God's perfect child just the way I am.
    It's ok to be me.

  12. My word would be "Endure" it would help me in both my running/tris and my spiritual life as I feel like it is a challenge to endure to the end by following Christ and completing my races. I want to do a 70.3 this year, and my main goal is to finish, and I feel like it is not going to be easy, so "endure to the end" is what I want to do this year and in my life.
