  • Thanks for hosting this weekly goals link-up every week, Crystal. It is very inspiring and encouraging to read all the goals everyone is working on. 🙂

  • Beth says:

    Crystal, The breakdown on your goals is great, and it is motivating to have the regular posts. One thing that I’ve noticed is that there isn’t necessarily continuity between your monthly, yearly and weekly goals, but it seems that one should flow from the other. I’m wondering if you could draw a bigger connection between the two without over sharing more personal details of your life.

    • Crystal says:

      Many of them are broken down from the yearly goals: the reading goals — for me and the kids, memorization goals, and exercise goals are all from the yearly goals. The rest on this list are based upon current or ongoing personal goals or family goals: to nurture my marriage, to nurture myself as a person (sewing = creativity outlet, speaking = business goal, sleep = health goal) and to continue to nurture the blog (magazine article, Clutter-Busting Challenge–which doubles as clearing out my home, too!)

      I hope that helps clarify!

  • Melissa says:

    How is your running going? I haven’t heard you talk much about that lately.

  • Nicci says:

    Thanks for hosting! You have been a great inspiration for me in goal setting, thanks!

  • Woot woot on the speak at the PA Homeschool convention goal! I am so excited to get to meet you in person!

  • Shelly says:

    I am hoping to get more read aloud time with my son this week. He is getting better at sitting an listening. He is so different than his older sister who I did read aloud to at least 2-3 hours a day when she was his age. With my son we are lucky to get 10 minutes in. But I am making an effort to read to him each day.

    Have a great time at the conference.

  • Michelle says:

    Would love to hear your take on 24/6. I just finished it and while I enjoyed it and was challenged it seemed a bit light on Sabbath and life with littles. Although it did cement my husband’s and my desire to live within walking distance of church wherever we move next…

  • It’s a simplified week for me as I just got back from a trip to California (I’m in Kentucky) to visit my first Grandbaby! My son is deployed and will not return to see his son until the baby is 8 months old, so that was a little hard, but at least my daughter-in-law has a supportive, helpful Mom and Dad.

  • Molly says:

    Ugh, I need to make getting more sleep a priority for myself as well. Maybe next week… 🙂

  • Great job on your goals last week! I’m sharing my goals for the month of May.

  • 3 exams and 3 papers away from the end of the semester.. that’s my goal!

  • Theresa says:

    I strayed away from my menu plannning and weekly goals. This is one of my focus areas in May.

  • Did you start “Start”? 🙂
