“Grace” and I Went For a Walk, and Found “Authenticity”

I have been hard at work getting this year’s goals organized. In the midst of it all, I decided to add an extra piece, the Illustrated Faith “Goals With Grace” devotional. It had me at “Grace” being that was my “One Little Word“. (pretend those are “air quotes”, because that’s not annoying!)


The front cover, and as you can see, I have the word Grace as my word for 2017. Let me tell you, this a great word, and I definitely need it in my life.


 But, after all the reading, praying, and journaling, (and writing a pretty lengthy post on IG and FB), I realized I needed a word with a little more substance.


 I’m almost sure that authenticity and grace can walk through this year hand in hand quite nicely, and I can’t wait to see all the ways authenticity will guide me this year! (Time to work on my One Little Word binder! Yay!)

I still plan on sharing my goals setting scheme with you. I have been working on this devotional so diligently, I haven’t made time for much else. And I may do a flip through of this devotional on Youtube if I get motivated enough.

Here’s a link I shared on Facebook you might find interesting:
