One Word 2017
Two years ago, I gave up making New Year's resolutions (since I always failed anyways), and starting focusing on one word for the entire year. Taking the One Word Challenge has been such a positive experience in my life that I knew I wanted to do it again for 2017.
I first looked back on the words I focused on the past 2 years:
I recently wrote about how the word “Share” impacted my life in 2016.
The past few weeks I have been praying about what my “one word” should be for 2017. Several words have come to mind, but one word has continued to pop up several times. It's a word that initially seemd kind of strange for me to focus on. Before I went to church today, I prayed that God would either give me a confirmation or a new word.
During worship, this word once again came to mind, along with a Bible verse and a quote that I read recently. I knew in that moment that my "one word" for 2017 would be: LOOK.
In 2017 I want to LOOK for:
What one word will you focus on in 2017?

Julie--my one word is "Love" and my husband and I are doing it with our family as a family focus word and our small group (young couples with families) are also using it to guide our small group in the coming months....a bit of a mission focus for the small group. Looking to focus on loving God obviously, but also loving ourselves, others, being loving parents, being loving friends to one another, being loving and accepting of those around us, etc! Love is in the air hehe! LOOK is a great choice. Thanks for asking and sharing!

Mindy, what a wonderful word to focus on in 2017! I also think it's great that your family and small group are focusing on it too. Incredible things can happen when a group of like-minded people come together and support one another.
