Habits to Cultivate in 2019


January 6

Happy new year, friends! It feels like months since I last posted, and I’m thrilled to be back at blogging.

As I study my calendar and dig school books back out, I’m transitioning from holiday to work mode. It’s good to be back on schedule, especially since my life is shifting this month with a new job. (I’ll be helping out on the incredible Young Writer’s Workshop!)

Instead of pinning a list of resolutions or goals last week, I scratched down a handful of habits I want to cultivate in 2019. This article by Jonathan Rogers inspired me to focus more on day-to-day practices than year-end results.

Here are a few habits I want to develop in 2019:

>> Reading and studying Scripture deeply

>> Writing consistently/honing my niche and voice

>> Reading consistently

>> Exercising and staying healthy

>> Managing my time wisely between work/writing and family


What are some habits you’d like to cultivate this year?

Happy 2019!

Bethany J.


“I launch my bark on the unknown waters of this year,

with thee, O Father, as my harbor,

thee, O Son, at my helm,

thee, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.”

-From The Valley of Vision
