Admittedly, I think I went a little over-the-top colorful on this project. Sometimes I can’t fight my desire for so much color! Well, if I ever get sick of it, I’ll just re-do it. 🤷♀️
In January, our church is making a lot of changes to the Children and Youth program. We are excited about the changes, especially the focus on making individual goals. I’ve been brainstorming how to help my kids make the most of it.
I have a little tip for goal-making, that I definitely suggest reading. It is a quick read and might just entirely change your goals!
(I’m only sharing my goals in these pictures, because I like to keep the privacy of my children. Their goals are really sweet, though, and I really want them to reach each one. I always share about them with their permission. Those are great conversations to have with my teenagers, about what information is okay to be public!)
I created this bulletin board as a place where everyone in the family could post their goals. My hope is that if we could see each other’s goals, it would stay top-of-my mind how we could help and encourage each other.
The trick will be, where do I put this that we see it often enough, but not too much. Every notice how you can become “blind” to some things in your house? I may just keep moving it around to keep it fresh in our minds! We’ll see. It’s on my bedroom cabinet right now.
The format is modeled after the suggestions in the new youth program. There are 4 different categories of goals –
It was fun to make. I painted right on the bulletin board. After some paint, I threw on some fabric, little ribbon thingies, washi tape, labels … all in some good evening fun.
Will you be making family goals this year? And if you do, will you be posting them on a too-colorful bulletin board too? 😂
