I am a word person. I love to weigh and measure and sift words. I love the full value of a word. So, this process of choosing a word for the year is one I hold dear. Usually, I’m a few beats behind and don’t have a word until a couple weeks into January. But this word found me last fall. It’s a good one. We’re going to live together very well indeed. 🎉
Have you chosen a word? Did one choose you? Tell me about it, please?

    Usually I pick my own word, but this year when I was picking my saint I let the computer pick my word also. My word is Perseverance and while I really wanted to change it to Faith I am going to trust and embrace the word that was meant for me!

    I too used a word generator and got Action. It is perfect for me.

    I did the word generator. It gave me the word “mother”. So much to ponder here!

    My word is savor. With kids growing up, my youngest turned 12 today and my oldest got engaged at Christmas. I want to savor - not rush

    I've been working for several days on the Lara Casey process but my word hasn't found me yet. I know the "feel" of what I want but, nothing fits yet. I need my word!

    Mine is rather odd... “relish.” I used the random generator that Jen Fulweiler provided, and this one came up twice. After I stopped thinking about hot dogs, I began to ponder how to “relish” something might mean more along the lines of “rejoice” and “contentment,” both things I need to “relish” more. Also, an archaic definition of “relish” is “to make more pleasant,” and what do I want to do for my family but to make life more pleasant for them? So “relish” it is for 2018!

    Anchor or Simplify or Hygge. Can’t fully decide.

    Is this a specific planner or book? I always marvel at your colorful resources.

    I chose "Surrender" (to the will of God,) "Conquer" (my inclination to always turn to sugar,) and "Prudence" came from the word generator. Let's go 2018!

    Nourish. For many reasons,but particularly because it starts with no.

    My word from the @jenniferfulwiler word generator was recalibrate. Spot on!

  • 15w ago cathyk915 cathyk915

    This is my first year to use #powersheets2018 and I struggled to find the right word, so I tried @jenniferfulwiler generator and got "unwind" along with St. Martha - what a combo! But it totally fit on both accounts!

    My word found me during Mass on Sunday and then showed up all day, lest I miss the message.... Listen. I love the stillness and silence implied. Don't jump to planning the next move or the next sentence. Listen, carefully: to God, to the person next to me, or to the child in front of me.

    My word is Yield. Yield to gods will, spend more intentional time daily in prayer and reading the Bible. And to produce a yield by doing the small steps that I often give up on. By continuing to tend all year to the things that move me closer to the woman I want to be when I’m 70.

    FOCUS. It chose me during the last year some time and it gets happily carried into 2018

    I did Jen’s word generator, and looked at three, thinking that they all speak to me and, at the same time, don’t speak to me. At Mass on Monday when I was praying I found myself using the word “enough” repeatedly—-which was one of the three, of course. So that’s my word and it encompasses many aspects of my life!

    My word is Tranquility. I actually decided on it in October, and my birthday is in October so I figured I'd start on my birthday instead of New Year.

    My word comes to me, clearly like a little ring of a bell. On Friday I was in my laundry room and I heard"abide". This seemed soothingly existential until I went to Mass that day and heard the reading from the letter of John: "whoever claims to abide in him ought to walk just as he walked." Sooo, I have my work cut out for me!

    My word is “grace”.

  • 15w ago recoveringpeoplepleaser recoveringpeoplepleaser

    I was praying when the word “transform” came through loud and clear. Then @jenniferfulwiler’s saint name generator assigned me St John the Baptist and I knew I had chosen wisely. I also did Jen’s word generator and came up with “cuddle” which I’ve been consciously doing a lot more often with my kids all on the cusp of teenagerdom.
