These posts written by Todd (Amy’s husband) are designed to model a system of purposeful living. At least once a month, he spends time setting meaningful goals around one of seventeen core priorities.

Priority #1 – Spiritual Health
Goal Setting & Reflection Date
Deepen my prayer life by turning off the radio and praying during my ten-minute drive to work in the morning. Focus on specific elements of prayer:
Petition – Myself
Intercession – Others
Thoughts – UPDATED
I am happy to report I have been faithful since setting this goal in praying each morning during my ten-minute drive to work.
It has been a rich time with God and a great way to start my morning.
Especially rewarding has been spending time in confession. Being able to admit my failures and know that He both forgives me and provides a path to change feels like a huge weight being lifted off my shoulders each day.
Also rewarding has been time spent in personal petition. There are some big things going on in my life right now which can easily lead to anxiety and worry. Being able to offer these things to God knowing that I can trust Him frees me from the burdens of life.
Thoughts – ORIGINAL
For years when I was teaching, I used my morning drive to school to pray. But since moving to Lincoln and starting a new job a few years ago I have gotten away from this. My prayer life has not been nearly as consistent or rich as it used to be. Praying in the car is a great use of time and is something I need to bring back.
