note taking in the new year…

note takingOver the past couple of weeks I have shared with you some of my goals and self challenges for 2014.  I am challenging myself to drop a minimum of 40 lbs. in 90 day.  Also, I am challenging myself with the book shelf challenge where I am trying to fill up an empty book shelf with all the books I am going to read this year.  Both of those challenges have gotten off to a great start.  That being said, I have also challenged myself with another resolution this year.  The resolution/challenge to e a better note taker.  I have attended church my whole life, and sad to say, unless note sheets were handed out, I have always struggled to take notes in the service.  Don’t get me wrong, I pay close attention and have grown much through the various pastors and speakers that I have heard over the years.  However, writing down notes  and listening at the same time have been a struggle.  As a result I know I have forgotten many things that would have been a huge help in my walk with Christ.  I want 2014 to be different for me, I want to become a note taker.  I began this challenge by going to the store and finding a nice note book that I could keep with my Bible to take with me to church, seminars, conferences, or wherever I might find myself sitting under Biblical teaching.  Like my other two challenges I have gotten off to a great start and have found myself reusing my notes in personal studies and my devotions for my FCA students.  I am excited to see how this can help me grow closer to my Lord and Savior.  Challenger #3 be a better note taker is in full swing!
