Bring It On February! Get Motivated in Church!

I decided that this year, my word would be motivation.

I also decided that instead of doing resolutions, I’d do monthly goals, all using motivation to, well, to motivate me.

January’s goal was to Grow My Blog.

Here is how I did with my sub goals:
– Organize all my info with a planner, binder, spreadsheet (post calendar, groups, link-ups, sponsors, etc)
I bought a Passion Planner and put everything in it!

– Learn how to and implement scheduled posts on all my social media platforms
I now use Latergramme for scheduling Instagram, Viralwoot for Pinterest (or I did with a free trial), and Tweetdeck for Twitter. I already knew how to schedule on Facebook and Blogger.
– Redo my Pinterest boards
I reorganized my boards and fixed the broken links.
– Be more active in blogging groups
I posted and then I shared. I gave and I took.
– Reach out to bloggers and create 1 linkup and 1 giveaway
I did a giveaway…congratulations to Amanda, Shelby, and Brandy.
But, I never created a linkup, although I participated in my own.
– Understand Google Analytics
Nope! I never took my time to learn it.

So now, it is time to move onto February!


February–Magnify My Religion
My religion has always been part of my life, but I want to be better and not take it for granted. I have many friends who always post such encouraging scriptures and quotes from church leaders, whether they are Mormon or not. They also mention their relationship with God so eloquently and frequently in their blogs. Mormon or not, these women are so strong in their religion, and they are something to be admired and emulated. I want to improve my relationship with God and be a better example as a Mormon.
Sub Goals:
– Daily personal and family scripture reading with a scripture journal
– Daily personal morning and evening prayer, as well as daily family prayer
– Read an General Conference talk once a week
– Hold a full Family Home Evening every Monday
– Participate in church at least once every Sunday
– Find at least two times to perform charity or service to someone else
– Bear my testimony of Fast and Testimony Sunday
What are your goals this month? Do you have any goals this year that have to do with your religion?

  • Those are some wonderful goals!! I'm always so inspired by those bloggers that talk about God and how he is working in their lives. They are always so encouraging! 🙂 congrats on your goals from last month! That's awesome!

  • These are great goals Tayler!! Sometimes I feel like I am overdoing it on my blog by speaking out about my beliefs, but will I ever regret that? Of course not 🙂 Keep being you! Also? I don't get Google analytics either, so when you figure it out let me know!

  • I don't think you overdo it at all. I mean, that's what the General Authorities want us to do–use our social media presence to share the Gospel!

  • These are fantastic goals, Tayler. I need to adopt some of these myself.

  • Thanks! I'm trying really hard this month!

  • Awesome goals Tayler! I always forget about reading conference talks. Good luck with these!

  • I know, me, too!
