    My word for this year is “positive”. I want to bring a more positive attitude into my life, trying to see the positive side of life instead of concentrating on the negative.

    I have been doing the word of the year for 3 yrs now. It is amazing how much it helps me focus. This year my word is PRAISE, To praise not only my heavenly father but my spouse and family members and friends. We need to lift people up more these days and PRAISE is how I plan to do it.
