• 2014 Word Of The Year

    My word of the year for 2013 was “June” mostly because it reminds me of us.

    Kevin and Layla

    I was born on the 5th, and Kevin came (early) on the 28th. We were so excited to discover that we were both June ’74 babies! We were married on the 25th in 2004, so we’ll be celebrating our 10th anniversary the next time “our month” rolls around. 10th. How did that get here so fast? 

    So for the past 360 days, I invited June into my life. I wrote it down where I was sure to see it, and whenever I did, I always thought about us. It triggered trips down memory lane, and daydreams about the journey that lies ahead of us. Braking for June also encouraged me to pray for him more…to give thanks for us more.

    It was just one little word that encouraged me to cherish our bond in a completely different way each day this past year.

    That’s what choosing a Word Of The Year is all about. You live with it, you let it speak to you…you follow where it leads. There are no rules…it’s just supposed to be a little spark.


    I’ve been thinking about my word for 2014 over the past couple of weeks and I’m feeling especially drawn to us-plus lately.

    In my mind, that word means a whole-nother year of intentionally treasuring the unity that is us as we prepare, for the first time, to become an us-plus.

    Off to write it down in places I’m sure to see it… :-)
