241. 5 Significant Changes We’re Making in 2024

Powered by RedCircle

It’s 2024 and we’re kicking off this year with a podcast episode sharing about five significant changes we’re making in our lives/schedules to be more intentional and purposeful.

Because Kierstyn is starting preschool, we are tweaking our daily routine in three significant ways: getting up and out the door by 7:25 a.m., getting our younger three to bed by 7:30 p.m., and me turning off my screens at 8:30 p.m.  This isn’t just about change for the sake of change, it’s about aligning our lives more closely with our priorities, and we hope these adjustments will help us do just that.

We also discuss other tweaks that we will be making in 2024, such as changes to my blog and our commitment to ABC date nights! Creativity will reign supreme as we aim for 26 creatively-themed date nights throughout the year.

Are you planning any changes for 2024? I’d love to hear!
