Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • Ask God to examine your life and your heart and see where you can cut back, slow down, and enjoy the moments he’s given you.
  • Take some time to reflect on where you have been distracted from giving your life fully to God. Decide how you need to change and commit to seeing it through.
  • Create a list of things you’re grateful for in your life to remind you that life isn’t as bad as you may sometimes think.
  • Set aside some intentional time to create fun and meaningful moments with your family.
