Vision~choosing how to live

This is for part of a focus group for an upcoming book about choosing how to live, we will be focusing on the areas of : self-discipline, health, mothering, living a deeper Christian life, being true to how God made me, and living beyond myself. I can't wait to share more with y'all! 

First challenge is to create a vision board, something I have never done and since I haven't scrap-booked in years and don't have what I need to make a board I am using pinterest and my blog to create it. In my journal I have wrote more details about each area, but these are the verses I chose for each area.

I already have a focus verse that I posted about a couple weeks ago...
My heart desires a deeper relationship with the Lord and I know with that only goodness can flow from it! I want to glorify God in all I do; as a wife, parent, being a friend, serving in ministry, yoga, grocery shopping, just every day living, etc... Now I know that I won't always get it right, thank God for His grace! 
John Piper says it perfectly "When Jesus becomes greater in the world and I become lesser in the world, my joy increases. And when this is the purpose and plan of Jesus himself, it is not egomania. It’s love."

He must become greater; I must become less. - John 3:30 NIV This is the Message version: This is the assigned moment for Him to move into the center, while I slip off to the sidelines. and KJV He must increase, but I must  decrease.
