One Little Word | 2014

December has become somewhat of a calendar cue that among all of the events and planning and craziness that I need to start looking at the next year and what I might want to accomplish or focus on. It also means looking back and seeing what happened with the previous year’s word.

My word for 2013 was STORY. And it took a much different path than I had planned. My intention was to spend more time in this place and capture more stories from our lives. I said as much this time last year. That’s not at all what happened.

Instead, stories got documented – but not here. There’s a little bit on Instagram, some on Facebook, a handful of tweets. Not much to speak of here in this space. And that’s okay. Because story wound up being another journey altogether.

Last summer some friends and I decided to start a small group Bible Study. It was something we all felt we needed – we volunteer in church on Sunday morning and so don’t always get to study with other adults. The study we chose was called…. The Story. It didn’t even occur to me at the time that it was in fact my One Little Word.

It did turn out to be one of the most challenging Bible studies that I have ever embarked upon. Perfect for the time and challenges that were in front of me, and a front and center reminder of my word.

This year’s word came with a bit of thought and introspection. Again, a goal word.


I want to discover life around me.

Discover what 2014 has in store for the next 365 days.
