I know, it’s not even January yet. And I’m already talking about 2019.
But I am so jumping up and down like Tigger and I want to tell you all about it RIGHT NOW! You see, I want every year to be the best year ever. And I want YOUR 2019 to be the best year ever.
Because if 2019 is our last year, we want it to be our best year! And we never know when our last year will be, so we might as well live it in the best possible way! Let’s do this together!
A year ago, I published a book called Choose: An Invitation to the Best Day Ever Adventure. It’s all about making choices in order to live the best life, the most abundant life, the John 10:10 life. In other words, the Best Day Ever Adventure.
It’s a radical realization: although we can’t always choose what happens to us, we have total control over how we choose to respond to our circumstances.
John 10:10 says that Jesus came so we could have life – and life to the full. The thief (Satan) wants to steal, kill, and destroy us, but JESUS has come for us to have the BEST LIFE EVER!
You don’t know what’s coming next year. But you DO know that no matter what comes, you want to CHOOSE the BEST YEAR EVER. Hands down. Don’t you need this motivation? Don’t you need to preemptively CHOOSE that despite the circumstances around the corner YOU will choose the BEST YEAR EVER????
Well, starting January 1, I am launching the BEST YEAR EVER 30 DAY CHALLENGE and I want you and all your besties, buddies, tribe and fam to join me!
What will the challenge entail?
- We will be reading the book together. There are 21 chapters in the book, each with a specific CHOICE to make. When you sign up, you’ll be included on an e-mail list and receive the calendar for chapter assignments over the month of January. Chapters include: Choose Forgiveness, Selflessness, Gratitude, Vulnerability, to Listen, to Wait, Positivity, Learning, Joy, and SO MANY MORE. All choices that will make 2019 the BEST YEAR!
- I will be posting videos on Facebook and through e-mail that chat about the chapters we’re reading and the challenges you’ll be receiving. You’ll be encouraged to comment and join the discussion! My goal will be to inspire and motivate you to set and achieve goals for 2019 using John 10:10 as the catalyst.
- You’ll put together your Best Year Ever Adventure Map for 2019 so you can set GOALS for the choices you want to make for 2019…the BEST YEAR EVER!
But Carrie, why are you telling us so early?
Weeeeellll…it’s the holidays. and you’ll need to plan. You might want to grab some copies of the book for your bestie, bud, tribe member or fam so you can plan to do this challenge TOGETHER!
So, how do I join?
Before 2019 rolls around, let’s make a Jesus strengthened choice to make 2019 the BEST YEAR EVER. And it’s not so much about resolutions – although that might be part of it. And it’s not so much about habits – although that will certainly be part of it.
It’s living how Jesus wanted us to live. Embracing this life. Not letting Satan destroy us. Dedicating the first 30 days of the year to making the choice, establishing a routine for the rest of the year.
I can’t wait to hang out with you for 30 days in January.
