Mid-April Progress Report

Good morning, readers!

Today I thought I'd give you an update on how my April Resolutions are coming along.

What do you think of these forget-me-nots? I decided they're my favorite flower because they're my favorite colors, and they remind me of how God always remembers us. Also, I think they're really pretty. ;)
1. Omnibus Reading
Oh, if only I could skip this one. This is still really hard to get done. I need to find a motivation for myself... I doubt I'll be completely caught up by the end of the month, but I know I can get a B or a C on this at best if I get into gear.

2. Diary Writing
I've been starting a practice diary and have been writing a little bit in it, but in my personal diary I think I've only written one entry this month. But this is easy to get better on. All it takes is taking 10 minutes at night to write a page about my day.

3. Read Judges and Proverbs
I've read some Proverbs, but I'd love to dive more into the Word a bit more. I can imagine getting an A- on this one.

4. Teach Youth Group
Coming soon! I'm scheduled to teach on the 25th, so I'm super excited! I know what I'm going to teach about, I have some ideas to make it lots of fun, use plenty of examples from Scriptures, give encouragement, and if there's still time, prayer and extra encouragement. :)

5. Music Practice
I'm doing a lot better on this one than last month. I've been practicing some Mendelssohn and clarinet this month, and I'll probably practice again this week before the Music Festival on Friday and LYS Rehearsal and private lessons on Saturday. My practice diary is also a good motivator. I think for next month I'll make a calendar to go with it. 

6. Post at least 3 times this month
Reading this in the last couple days has put me in a giggle fit. Go ahead and look on the side of the page where it says Blog Archive, click on the April arrow, and count how many posts have been published this month. That's way more than 3 isn't it? And that's not including the resolutions posts. So with that math and reasoning, I think it's pretty easy to suspect the grade for this category.

This month is going pretty well by the looks of things. I'm pretty excited for this month's report card! Let me know how things are going with you as well. I love hearing from you all. :)

Once again, don't forget about the favorite books link-up and the poll at the top. The details are on the side of the posts.

God bless the rest of your day!

Question for the Reader: I've noticed in my life recently that a lot of people are in need of prayer. Do you have any prayer requests that you'd like to share? You can send me an email at or post in the comment box.

"Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known." --Jeremiah 33:3 
(I really like this verse because it's a reminder that when the going gets tough, God still holds everything together with His hands, and knows of greater things than we can see. All we have to do is call on Him, and He will answer us every time, even though He may not answer right away. I was told recently to think of Jeremiah 33:3 as God's phone number.)


  1. sounds like your month is going great so far! and while I'm sorry that you're kind of struggling with staying caught up with omni reading, it's good to know that I'm not alone in that. :P

  2. Haha, I know what you mean. Do you happen to have any suggestions for getting caught up?

    1. not especially... I've tried to set a goal of reading at least an hour a day (try to do more), but that hasn't worked very well. I guess I just need to stick to it long enough. haha :D


Thank you for your comment! God bless you.
