Happy New Year 2017
A new year is upon us and many of us are creating business and marketing plans for the year.  Some of you may not be “into” creating these documents but, hopefully, you are thinking about them.

It is important to decide what you want from 2017.  What you want for your business.  What you want for your family.  What you want for your life.  What you want may be exciting, overwhelming, or downright scary.  In fact, it may seem to you that these “wants” are all three!

However, this is not what this article is about.  Far from it.

Rather, the question is how much time have you spent creating or thinking about what you want FOR YOUR FAITH this year?  Has your Bible study come to a standstill?  Have you stopped helping out at church because you just can’t seem to find the time?  Is your prayer life faltering?

You’re not alone.  So many people become so absorbed and fixated on their businesses, personal challenges, and the chaos of daily life that their faith begins to suffer . . . and sometimes they don’t even realize it.

It’s time to take stock of what is happening in your Christian walk.  To ask yourself, what do I really want for my faith this year?  What can I do this year to strengthen and revitalize my faith?  In what areas do I need to concentrate?

If you haven’t been thinking about these things, maybe it’s time to sit down and quietly contemplate your relationship with the Lord.  If you do, maybe the Holy Spirit will help you out with a few suggestions.

What DO you want for your faith this year?

Wondering if life coaching would be a fit for working with other widows and widowers who had lost spouses, she was pleasantly surprised to find that life coaching would indeed be a wonderful conduit for working with those who had suffered a great loss.
