This month is the third blogiversary of InspiredToAction.com. I have absolutely loved sharing this motherhood journey with you all. We’ve done HelloMornings together, we’ve gone to the Philippines together, and we have realized that moms are kind of a big deal together.
For 2013, I am passionate about learning together. Next December, I want you to look back and see a year of growth. A year when you transformed from January to December, in big and small ways. I dream of playing a part in your personal revolution.
I may not know much, but I want to share everything I know. And for all of you way ahead of me, I just want to cheer you on; maybe give you a fist bump and say “You’ve got this!”
Two Homework Assignments
In an effort to intentionally grow, I have two assignments for us this month.
I already mentioned that I’m reading through the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell and I encourage you to pick up a copy too.
Your assignment is to read through the intro and Chapter 1 by the end of the month. I realize that reading one chapter in a month sounds like a small goal, but it’s a book that requires some journaling and prayer, so I want you to read AND process Chapter 1.
I’ll blog about it at the end of the month and I hope you’ll join in with your thoughts and the nuggets you took away from the book.
2. Save the Date
Over the Thanskgiving holiday, I shared a Black Friday sale that the site Plan To Eat was offering. I saw so many of you signed up and I want to make sure it is a worthwhile investment for you, so I’ll be hosting a Meal Planning Boot Camp the week of January 21.
We well take one week and TOGETHER, we will go through the process of adding in recipes, making menu plans, making a grocery store battle plan and figure out how to cook as painlessly as possible.
I’m working on tutorials and screencast videos of how I handle meal planning, shopping and cooking so that you can see, not just read, how I manage it. That doesn’t mean you have to do things my way, but I hope it will inspire you to create a plan that works well for you.
I’ll have more details for you soon, but for now, just save the date. Also, please note that I’m just doing this because PTE has been one of the most useful tools I’ve found. I’ve gone from banging my head on the pantry every day at 4pm to having yummy food on the table each night (mostly). They did not contact me about doing this and I am not associated with them at all.
I did, however, email them and ask if I could get a coupon for those of you who didn’t get a chance to sign up over the Black Friday sale. They were super nice and sent me a coupon for Inspired To Action readers for 30% off! So, if you want to join us for the boot camp, just save the date and go sign up at Plan to Eat using the coupon code PTEBOOTCAMP.
It’s a simple start, but…y’all… we are going to rock 2013.
Recap: Start reading and save the date (Jan 21-25).
