New Years Goals & Reflections | 2018

Happy New Year, friends!  January always feels like a fresh start to me and is a time I typically spend reflecting on what the past year has brought and considering what I hope for in the new year.  Today I am sharing my reflections from 2017 and my goals/aspirations/priorities for 2018.

You can watch this video to hear about my goals and reflections:

  1. Happy New Year’s to you as well. Since the first video of you I watched on your old myhousewifelife channel, I have been a supporter and well wished of you. I enjoy all of the content you create because it is genuine. Not that every topic is something I have a personal interest in, but it is YOU that I come to see and have a few minutes break with. I have been working on a lot of things in my personal life as you have, and my hope is that we continue to grow and gain more happiness with each passing moment.

  2. Having followed you for I don’t know how long now, I can totally see what you mean when you say you feel so grounded these days. You have grown so much as a person and a creator over the years and things can only keep moving forward. Wishing you and all the family so much love, luck and happiness for the year and adventure ahead!

  3. Jen, I’m probably old enough to be your mother, but I truly enjoy your videos, and your sharing of genuine, kind, beautiful life stories. I feel that your ideas and thoughts sometimes spark ideas regarding things I may want to attempt, change or embark on someday. Thank you for being you! So excited for your New Year 2018! I too am hopeful for a wonderful year ahead.

  4. Thanks Jen for your post. I have been following your blog (all the way in Australia) for the past few years to help with my organisational efforts mostly, but also enjoying following along as Charlotte grows as I also have a little one who is now 18mths old. I haven’t commented before but felt the need today as I just found your post so real, heartfelt and really spoke to me (a few tears) thank you and also for helping me realize my one little word for the year…kindness. Thanks Jen take care Tiffany 🙂

  5. Jen, there are many good people in the world no doubt. But you are undoubtedly one of the best. Your end of the year video was inspirational to say the least. I needed to hear it. So thank you so much.

  6. Loved your video! You are so very right about marriage. You were married before children and if you’re foundation together as a team is not solid then it does no good for your children. If your children see a loving caring relationship between mom and dad that will have such a lasting effect on them. I am going to be a first time mama come May and my marriage is definitely a huge part of my goals as well as our baby girl. Well wishes going your way in the next weeks as you prepare for baby #2!

  7. Happy New Year Jen and Family! It will be an exciting year with your new little addition!
    Looking forward to all that you share in the new year! Best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year to you and your family!😊

  8. Wonderful insights and reflections! Thanks so much for sharing. I’ve been thinking a lot about goals too, and it helps to hear your straight-from-the-heart way of approaching the new year.

  9. You look so content in this reflections in comparison to those from years ago. I’m glad to see you taking a relaxed approach to enrichment. Taking time to just breathe in every moment is so nice. God bless you and your beautiful family! xo

  10. Jennifer,

    I have been watching your videos for quite some time now, and I just wanted to let you know that you make me so d@#n proud of you! I love your positive spirit and your priorities as a wife, mom, and family member! It’s awesome! You are truly a blessing! And, I thank you so much for posting such positive content for those of us who feel like you but don’t necessarily have a family who gets it and appreciates it because it’s so good to see how beautifully it works when you do. Hope it makes sense. But, thank you so much too, keep up the great work, and may you and yours have a happy, healthy, blessed new year as well!

  11. Hey Jen, this has been such a touching video. I can really see you have grown tremendously as a person and also in your faith by speaking about it. It is important for us to speak about our faith, so we can also be a beacon of light to others and show them that they can also find the hope, which we have found in God. Never underestimate what you have done here today, somebody needed to hear and see this. I pray Colossians 1 9-14 for you.
