Planning a Restorative New Year

With 2023 drawing to a close and 2024 beginning, there are things we can do to process, grieve, celebrate the past year, so we can approach the new year with hope, vision, and excitement. 

Jennifer and Emelie come together in Episode 63 to share how they process the past year, and plan for the next year. 

This episode covers personal stories and ideas for the processes of welcoming in the new year. They cover the importance of dreaming with God for the year, setting aside time to grieve dissapointment, failure, and frustrations from the year so we can understand God's perspective on us and our year. They talk about learning to hear from God as a friend who wants to speak with and join us in our dreaming. 

The episode is also full of practical and beautiful ideas for making goals. You can write a eulogy so each year you set goals around how you want to be remebered. Setting fun goals like what do I want to learn, what books do I want to read, are great for finding ways to grow and learn something that privides life giving creativity or opportunities to learn and rest. 

Finally, we are so excited to announce that the Restoration Home Community is opening in January for a year of habit building through Jennifer's new book "Habits for a Sacred Home". One things we have learned is that community is so important for growing in our habits and acheiving our goals, and we're excited to build community around sacred habits in 2024.
