Happy New Year, friends!! How fun to reflect on one of the fullest, most challenging, most amazing years ever! Matt & I loved our first full year of marriage in 2018, and are excited to share a little bit about it with you all! We love choosing a word for each year that represents our hopes, prayers, and the actions we intend to take in the coming twelve months. In 2018, we chose “intentional.” Our intentionality this year has stemmed from the grace of Jesus, our hope in the gospel, and God’s faithfulness to bring us peace, joy, and amazing friendships.
What were we loving most in 2018? Being on the launch team for Eastside Community Church, our relationship with the Lord, our amazing homegroup, our incredible family, and the ability to invest in work that we love. You can see more about our favorites from 2018 in the photos below!
We’ve chosen to focus on the word “Thrive” for 2019! As we continue to walk through the loss of Matt’s dad, enter our second year of marriage, and reflect on how Christ loves us, we’re praying & taking action towards thriving in faith-fueled boldness and anticipation of what this year has for us. We are excited to see what 2019 holds and want to thank all of you for the love and support we have felt from you this year!
Our 2019 Goals
1. Invest time in growing our relationships with God
2. Prioritize our marriage and make intentional decisions to help it grow and flourish.
3. Invest time in our community & church.
4. Learn & Grow!
5. Quality over Quantity
7. Be Present
Sami & Matt
