What a year! NACWE has thrived, and we have all accomplished goals together and we’ve seen our dreams become reality. 2014 has been a year of bravery, new friendships, risks, success, failure, love, loss, and determination. Tonight is New Year’s Eve, a time for reflection and celebration. We have a lot to celebrate together!
On our Facebook page for NACWE members, we asked, “What was your word for 2014, and what did you learn?” We got some great responses from some fantastic NACWE members!
“My word for 2014 was focus. As a church, we were challenged to read through the Bible this year. God had shown me something when I first (reluctantly) gave my heart to Him, and I picked that back up and totally focused on it. Now, I hope to write about it. My first obstacle has already hit, and, boy, is it a doozy…Help me, Lord!”
“My word for 2014 was discipline. It helped me grow my business and be obedient to God’s call by stepping out in faith.”
—Heidi Kilde Kleine
“My word for 2014 was also discipline. It helped me complete one of the tasks on my “bucket list”—to write a book about the principles that have evolved in the 3+ decades I have been in the organizing and productivity business. It now exists! Learn more at www.LessClutterMoreLife.com.
“My word was peace. It has helped me to slow down, re-prioritize, and not get too overwhelmed during the major transitions that took place in my life this year.”
—Shannon Whalen Spencer
“Mine was joyful abundance.”
“Relationships was mine. 🙂 ”
“Mine was freedom, and I didn’t find it until yesterday!”
“Magnificent was my 2014 word. I learned to believe that no matter what, I am right where I supposed to be. Therefore, my attitude determines magnificence. The more I lived in acceptance and authenticity, the more magnificent my life became! It was a magnificent year!”
“Focus—to stay focused on the calling God had for me. I let go of some things and embraced some new ones. By staying focused on God, he shows me the path I need to take each day.”
“Devoted…As time went by through the year, I came to realize how truly devoted the Lord is to His people and how much more I became devoted to followed Him!”
“Action! I learned the difference between getting results and staying stuck is action. Goals, plans, and accountability mean nothing without action.”
“My word was simplify, and I learned that by simplifying my life, I can eliminate so much stress!”
As we look forward to 2015, we hope you will continue to join us as we work towards greatness together. We will be here to support and encourage you every step of the way. Here’s to a great year… and many more!
