even more needed is something centered around spiritual discipline. again, i tend to think i need a study to follow or some kind of reading plan to keep me on track. i just finished reading David Platt's book Radical. at the end of it, he challenges the reader to (among other things) read the entire Bible in one year. i would like to do this, so i'm going to try to find a reading plan to meet this goal. I think our old church use to have one posted online so i may check that out.
i am realizing i need some sort of structure to my life or i am very unlikely to be productive. since i don't really have a schedule (other than keeping up with abbey's) i have been very unproductive and borderline lazy for the past month or so. it must stop. i did however manage to teach abbey to point to my nose when i ask her to. i was pretty excited about that accomplishment :)
