What is Your Theme for the New Year?

What is Your Theme for the New Year?

A couple of years ago I began creating a theme for my upcoming year along with a corresponding Bible verse. In 2016 my theme was Bloom. My verse was James 1:21 “And humbly welcome the word of truth that will blossom like the seed of salvation planted in your souls.” That year I published two books, two Christian yoga decks, and three digital products. You can find these products at ChristianYoga.com.

This year my theme is peace. My verse is Numbers 6:24–26 “May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace” (NLT). Have you thought about what your theme for 2018?


I like a paper calendar versus an electronic one. Every year I purchase a new calendar, and after Christmas I put my schedule and appointments in it. I print out my theme and verse and tape it to the front of my calendar. In 2018, I look forward to embracing a year of peace. What would you like to embrace in the new year? Take a moment and ask God what he has in store for you.


Happy New Year,
