When I shared my 4 goal setting tips, I realized that I hadn’t put any accountability in place yet for my own goals.

Therefore, today I want to share my goals for 2018 with you because I need help sticking to them this year.

Plus you might like to see what you can expect this year from Intentional By Grace.

As I look at these goals, I get really excited.

I’m excited because these goals will truly push me to press into every are of my life this year.

I’ve been praying, “Here I am, Lord, send me,” for several years. I hope that by pressing toward these goals others will come to know Him and that He would be glorified in all I do.

What about you? What are your goals for 2018? I would love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. I am encouraged by your goals for 2018. Although they are more than I dare to commit to, they are somewhat similar to mine. Your word for the year seems perfect as well. In a world that is so busy everyone is trying to slow down. It is my goal to instead focus on the really important – faith, family and friends, and to let the rest sit on the sidelines for 2018. I’m glad to see someone else feels the need to press with purpose toward that which is most valuable. Thank you for sharing.
