31 Inspiring New Year’s Resolution Ideas!

    Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and counsel. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian life and walk of faith! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions.

    Recently on the Girl Talk forum, there was a post discussing goals and ideas for 2014. To join the chat and read the full post, click here.

    Resolutions are a great way to get inspired for the New Year! Do you have a new hobby you want to pursue? Have a personal goal? Want to save up for a special trip or for something you need?

    Nicole and Christi work with the PI team on some new goals for the site. [Image:]

    Here are inspiring ideas from the Girl Talk forum and chat posts, plus other suggestions for the New Year:

    • Save for a trip or vacation.
    • Learn a new language.
    • Pick up an instrument (take piano, guitar or voice lessons, for example).
    • Make a new friend.
    • Be more bold in faith/share with others.

    PI Girls, there are so many things we can “resolve” or accomplish in 2014. What are some of the ideas you have in mind? Also, keep an eye out for the things God has placed on your heart to do for His Kingdom and for His glory, amen?!

    1. My New Years Resolutions 🙂 :
      – Put others before myself
      -Volunteer/give more
      -Be good to myself so that I can be good to others
      -Read my bible once a week (other than at church)
      -Only use one teaspoon of sugar in my tea (my main goal is to stop using it completely; but, we all must take baby steps!).
      Happy 2014!

    2. This is a really cool article!
      A few of my goals this new year is doing the mirror challenge right now wher ei dont look at myself for a week and its much harder than I thought but it is a good challenge!
      – I’m also praying that God would help me treasure Him more and grow in who He is.
      – I’ve also been praying God would help me in purity this year and with my thoughts toward guys around me.
      Really excited!!
