2008 goals update

back at the beginning of the year i wrote about having a list of personal goals for 2008 [part I and part II]. these took a while to come up with, and include both personal, ministry, and family goals. here’s an update:

– read at least 10 books (3 down, currently reading 2 more)
– read through the Bible (not included in the 10 above) (finishing out Numbers; i need to step up my pace on this one)
– get back down to at least 200 lbs
– build up an emergency fund (DONE!!!)
– rebuild the wall in my kitchen
– recruit at least 2 new regular committed leaders in each of my two ministry areas (1 down)
– win a poker night (Friday, March 14 – thanks Spence, Jon, Mike

i’m pumped about the emergency fund. this was a huge one that honestly i thought would be more of a struggle than it was. thankfully i have a flipping amazing wife who is also flipping amazing at our finances. now that our emergency fund is cranked out, we’re working on our debt snowball to pay down my two student loans, our jeep, and finally our house. the writing and leadership of Joe Sangle and Dave Ramsey have been key in our getting our finances on track. check them out…now!

    I’m proud of you guys!!! Way to go!

    There is NOTHING like having an emergency fund in place for “whatever life sends my way”.

    Thanks for the shout-out and great job!
    Joe
