This is an ambitious list for me and I know that there will be weeks where I won't get everything done, but it's okay. I just want the list out there as a reminder of what I would LIKE to accomplish this summer.

Now, go make your summer list!


  1. Ash, you've lost 19 pounds!???!!! That's fantastic! I've definitely hit a plateau, but I'm not giving up. I'm so proud of you!

  2. Dang! Between you and Stacey, I want to compile a list of my own! I probably won't post it, I'll just hang it where I see it every day to remind me of my goals.

    Congrats on the weight loss... and here's to keeping it off! (That's always the hardest part for me! ;)

  3. hi ashely!
    i'm on chapter 4 of the power of a praying wife and i started end of april! i wrote down my goal for this book and it's to read one chapter a week. what i do is read a chapter on monday and thru out the week i pray on the topic, re-read the chapter, take notes and think on the chapter intentionally every day for a week. at this pace i'll be done by mid November and james will be completely covered in prayer! not to mention the miracles along the way, and God creating a prayer habit in my life too! it's been a great journey so far!!!!! i highly recommend it!
