A Sneak Peak into 2018 (All the Goodness Fresh Start Family is Planning for You!)

by | December 29, 2017 | 0 comments

2018 is upon us! A new year ahead filled with fresh starts, new possibilities & endless opportunities.

I’ve always loved the transitions to new seasons. Something about the changing of weather, decorations, schedules and priorities that is so refreshing. Taking some time to say goodbye to 2017 (and anything we want to leave behind) and hello to a new year through creative & intentional planning is definitely a meaningful task I enjoy!

What are you some things or behaviors that you’d love to leave behind in 2017? And what are you looking forward to in 2018? Has anything been put on your heart as far as areas you need to grow in? Do you crave support with one particular part of parenting?

If increased peace, joy & connection in your home is on your list of important things to focus on in the new year, I’ve got you covered!

Here’s what’s in store for the next 12 months with Fresh Start Family. What an honor it is to guide, encourage & inspire you all to pour into your families.

Grab your calendar & choose a few courses to register for! Then mark your calendars so you can look forward to staying supported.
