our 2020 anthem

Updated: Apr 17

Wow. It’s been a hot minute!


I hope and pray that you had an amazing/restful/joyful/memory-filled Christmas and New Year’s! If you’re anything like me, you were COUNTING DOWN the minutes until the new year came and you welcomed 2020 with open arms!!! A FRESH START is always on the agenda 🙂


December came and went and to be honest, it wasn’t fabulous. Sure there were fabulous moments, but hovering over everything was just a bunch of HARD.


Anyone else?


I’ve never had a Christmas season quite like this before… where you continue with all the traditions and all the Christmas-y things, but nothing feels Christmas-y… no matter how hard you try.


But with several deep breaths, too many “come to Jesus” talks with my patient husband… and 400 prayers, my head is starting to submit to my heart once again and everything will be ok.



Personally, I’ve never been a huge believer of New Year’s Resolutions. If you follow Brendon Burchard, he talks about how most people’s resolutions are goals that they usually fail at. Goals like weight loss, quitting smoking, keeping the house clean, etc. All of these are great goals, but without a heart/mind-shift, there’s a good chance that anything that was deemed significantly important on January 1 will just be a distant memory come March 1.


Enter our family anthem.


This has been a tradition for several years; it’s a time where we get together and talk/pray about what our family wants to focus on for the new year. It’s one of my favorite things and something that our kids are eager to share in.


It was my 14 year old, Justus, who thought of our word. As soon as he shared it, we knew it was the one! Are you ready for it?


FULL SEND.


Have you heard of that term before? Yeah, me either. And when I looked it up, I had major FOMO because the definition is so freaking rad. (yep I said rad :))


If you do something full send, especially in extreme sports, you’re doing it full-throttle and with 100% commitment—even if you end up failing.


Full Send means going all out at a task or activity, usually without thinking through the risks or consequences.


Pretty rad, huh!?


So for 2020, instead of having a bunch of goals, we’re choosing to focus our hearts & minds toward having a “full send” attitude.


Full Send toward:

  1. our health journey

  2. insecurities that shout we’re not qualified

  3. fear of the unknown

  4. taking risks

  5. financial opportunities

  6. starting new businesses

  7. forgiving those who hurt us

  8. our grief journey

  9. a marriage that thrives


And so. much. more.

2020, we gotchu.

Also, Thurman’s are comin in hot. 🙂
