(Seriously, I’m probably forgetting something important.)
This year I have grown so much in my faith. At the end of 2015, the conference I attended set me in place for this year. I have learned what it really means to be free of bondage and have a more intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. I learned the importance of having mentors and being a mentor through small groups and each of the many opportunities that came my way. 2016 year was also my first year of giving God my first 10%. Since January, every payday is also tithe day. And since January, I have not worried once about money or really anything. He blessed me so much throughout the year. Next to any struggle was a blessing and next to any hardship was a solution. Sometimes it took me a little while to find it, but I always did. This was my first year that I have seriously maintained some kind of quiet time each day and I am so grateful for that. Throughout the year I began to treasure it more and more each day. Whether it was in one minute or thirty, it fueled me. I flourished. 2016 was a year filled with extraordinary love from my Father that created abundant life in my spirit, relationships, character, and passions.
And das all. Super excited for 2017 and all of the adventures to be had, music to be heard, and words to written. Stay tuned.
