|Happy New Year!We pray your Christmas was blessedâ€”packed with precious
Â memories and family fun. All of our children and our granddaughters
were in town so our holiday was full of family funâ€”even in the pouring rain in â€œsunnyâ€ San Diego!
Now a few hints to Â help you and those you love Â have a great new year:
Pray and ask God to give you a theme and a verse for 2011.
(Weâ€™ll tell you ours later this month). Once you have a theme, set aside time
to brainstorm some goals to strengthen your personal life, your marriage
and your family. Read how we set (and hopefully reach) our goals each year in our current Crosswalk Magazine article:
