My 3 Words

As I look back on 2015 I see trials, surprises, happiness and friendships.  I see courage, fear, and decisions.  My One Word last year was Faithfulness.  I have been challenged to seek out 3 Words that I vow to live by in 2016-(Thanks @jennifer_hogan)   So here goes....


This past fall has been rough for me personally.  There has been many days where it's been hard to get out of bed.  My physical workouts have dimished, my diet has gotten worse, at times my attitude has not been as positive as I have been.  We are called to be the light.  Be the light that others want to follow.  Be an example.  Be positive.   My goal here is to SHINE each and every day no matter what is going on personally so others my be influenced by my actions.

As a light-our goal is to SHARE.  Share what we know.  Support others with their goals and what they want to accomplish.  Be real and transparent. People many times will attach to people who are real. I want to share what I know and what I feel.  My goal is to be the best leader that I can be for others.


One struggle of mine as a leader and as a person is to share responsibilities and build leaders. I have been working on this in my personal life and with friendships, however at work I have fallen short.  As a light and leader my responsibility is to help shape others.  Whether it be a student who is struggling in Math or a teacher who has some struggles with classroom management- I have to help shape others.  My goal is to  SHAPE others so they can have the tools to go forward in their daily life.

These are my 3 Words for 2016.  I challenge you to think of your 3-How are you planning on changing lives in 2016??

Happy New Year and Blessings,
