2018 Word of the Year

Personally, I have never chosen a “Word of the Year.” And until this past week haven’t really thought much about it. A friend was talking about her word of the year. A mentioned how God really chose it for her. I was in awe!!! As I thought back over the trials and triumphs of 2017 I realized something. Without my even knowing it, God had chosen words for me! He was showing me all year one thing and then at the end of the year let me know what the focus for the next year would be.

I think that there is a lot of merit to letting God lead you to a focus word for the year that will enrich and grow your walk with Him. We all need a little more focus and leading in our walk with God. I am scared and excited to see what God will bring in the coming year and know that at the end of 2018 He will have done great works in me!

In our featured post this week Mary Leigh is talking with us about her “Word of the Year” and how she got started choosing one. I am very thankful for this post and how it, along with Jessica and our talk, opened my eyes to what God has in store for me this year! Enjoy!

2018 Word of the Year by Mary Leigh


Happy New Year, friends!  I don’t know about you, but there is something so wonderful to me about this time of year.  I love the feeling of a fresh start, the opportunity to reflect on a year gone by, and the time to set aside to really consider what your goals and intentions are for the year to come.

It’s refreshing and re-energizing to consider all the possibilities of new-ness of January 1.  This is an especially exciting new year for our family as we continue to prepare for the arrival of our newest one in just a few short weeks.

One of the things I like to do at the start of each year is to choose one word that will be my focus word for the entire year.  I first came across this idea from Lara Casey, the author of Cultivate & Make It Happen, as well as the widely popular Powersheets for intentional goal planning.  The point is that you choose one word that will be your guiding word for the upcoming year. I think of it as the spring board for my goal planning for the year. It doesn’t take the place  of a list of goals, but it is helpful to focus those goals and my work throughout the year.

So then, what is it?
