2017 Goals

With the word of the year for us being intentional, it puts an additional meaning and umph behind our goals.  We want to be intentional with our goals in order for us to be intentional in our every day lives.  With this in mind, we have spent more time than normal focusing in on our goals, and still need to further specify what our plans for the year are, in some areas of our lives.

2017 Goals
