Project Life 2013: Week 1

Project Life 2013 Week 1


I started digital scrapbooking and using the Project Life system last May. I am excited to start at the beginning of 2013 and I hope to keep up with it through the year. 

Typically my spreads are two 12x12 pages for each week. 
This week's spread is only one page, but I think Week 2 will also only be one page so I figure it will turn out all right in the end.There is not a lot going on around here and I need to get back in the habit of taking more pictures and making notes on my phone's Day One app.

Press FORWARD and Be Steadfast

When I chose the word FORWARD as my One Litte Word for 2013 I couldn't help but think of this:
Wherefore, ye must press forward with a asteadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of bhope, and a clove of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and dendure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eeternal life.

After looking this up, I then did a quick search for the term "press forward."

The first thing that I came to was this talk given by Elaine S. Dalton in 2003:

Press FORWARD and Be Steadfast

What does it mean to press FORWARD?
To move FORWARD with determination, regardless of adversity or distraction.

I also noted the following from Sister Dalton's talk:


Press FORWARD with a steadfast testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Steadfast choices of one individual affect generations. Your daily decisions will influence generations.
In order to press FORWARD you have to have a vision of where you are going.

One Little Word



Happy New Year, Everyone!!!

I hope that everyone has enjoyed a wonderful holiday season surrounded by family and loved ones.

I don't know about all of you but, I must say that it feels good to be at the beginning of a new year.

A few years ago I read a blog post by Ali Edwards that I was reminded of recently.
She chooses a word at the beginning of every new year that communicates her vision of what she wants for herself in the upcoming year. With this idea in mind I started thinking about what word would best represent my vision for 2013. After a conversation with James, I wanted a word that would remind me to be present, in the moment, and to be excited for the future. After all that has happened in 2012 it would be so easy to get stuck in the past. I had all intentions of using the word 'be' until I saw this video posted on Facebook on New Year's Eve:


 This little piece of inspiration found me right when I needed it. From this I found my one little word (or did my little word find me?):

FORWARD

I can't wait to see where this word takes me in 2013!
