The Big Questions

By  |  0 Comments

Below are 20 questions I use each year as a springboard to reflect on the past 365 days.

Use these Reflection Questions however you see fit over the next few days. Feel free to think over these throughout your day. But if you’d like to be a bit more intentional with them, every year I provide a free PDF download over on Simlpe Mom – head over there to download the document, fresh off the press. Want to answer these questions solo? Grab a cup of coffee and a pen, and use the space provided on the first three pages of the free download. Want to chat over the answers with your spouse or with friends? Use the last page of the PDF to cut each question into squares, and then toss them in a hat to draw, one at a time.   In early January, I’ll share another round of questions (and another PDF) on Simple Mom. This time, they’ll be to help plan your goals for next year. What are your plans? Your hopes? What would you like to happen for you personally, for your children, for your family? I like what Dave Ramsey says – “A goal without a plan is just a dream.”   But for now, use the next 48 hours to reflect on the past 365 days…
