 Sky Ranch Sky Mom Gathering at Prestonwood for our Dallas Area Moms!

A special thanks to our hostesses:

A special thanks to Lisa Clark,

who gave us great encouragement on how to start our 2012 with our Family!

"Goal Setting – A New Approach to Family"

This message was about spending intentional time of setting family goals with each person in your family in 4 areas according to the Luke 2:52 Scripture.

"And Jesus grew in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man."
wisdom (intellectually, academically), 
stature (physically, healthy living), 
in favor with God (spiritual growth areas)  
in favor with man (service, community, giving back).  
Oh, this talk topic is always so good!  And so good to start the year with each family member!  For our family I will share some of our goals:
wisdom:  Limiting technology time.
stature: My daughters both gave up drinking sodas and carbonated drinks for this year of 2012...we are on day 20 :)!  And for the rest of the family, we have chosen to eat healthier... and as my husband stated a few nights ago..."Lets spice up this chicken and salad routine a little bit more!"..hahaha!!
In favor with God: One of our daughters picked out a new devotional with her Sky Ranch counselor over the Christmas Break, while the
other started another new devo as well for the 2012 year.   This is a very special time of our morning together around our table as we start our day with each other hearing from the Lord.
Lisa shared that she has started reading through the Bible in a year...this has challenged me..with something I would like to FINISH in one year!  Lisa recommended...
the Daily Walk Bible (NLT).
In favor with man:  Our girls are preparing prayerfully for going on upcoming Mission trips.... they have come up with ways to raise money by selling items they are making.  We are together as a family are praying for lives to be touched and changed on these trips across the Nations and within our own community.
