I am Resolved

My wife is so good. She usually has her new year’s resolutions ready to go come the end of December. But this year, I beat her! Usually, I have a vague list floating around in my noggin, which I promptly forget by January 15. So, this year, they’re written down; before we ring in the new year, each one will have its own action plan. In the spirit of accountability, here is my list.

  • Learn French, regain Greek, and maintain Spanish
  • Learn guitar
  • Eat French-ly again
  • Blog at least once a week
  • Read through Gospels, paying close attention to examples of Christ being a friend to sinners
  • Read (at least) one book a month:

JANUARY: Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream (David Platt)

FEBRUARY: Mere Christianity (C.S. Lewis)

MARCH: Grace-Based Parenting (Tim Kimmel)

APRIL: Faithful Feelings: Rethinking Emotion in the New Testament (Matthew Elliott)

MAY: Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in The Christian Life (R.C. Sproul)

JUNE: God is the Gospel (John Piper)

JULY: Gospel-Powered Parenting: How the Gospel Shapes and Transforms Parenting (William Farley)

AUGUST: Genesis Unbound (John Sailhamer)

SEPTEMBER: Preaching Christ in All of Scripture (Edward Clowney)

OCTOBER: Imitation of Christ (Thomas à Kempis)

NOVEMBER: Church Planter: The Man, the Message, the Mission (Darrin Patrick)

DECEMBER: It is Well: Expositions on Substitutionary Atonement (Mark Dever)


Do you set resolutions? If so, what are they?
