Looking Back + Moving Forward

A helpful tool to reflect on 2020 and find hope for 2021

As this monumental year of 2020 comes to a close, I thought I'd share one of my favorite tools for reviewing the year behind us and looking forward to the year ahead with hope and anticipation.  My encouragement is to take this reflection one step deeper- beyond the hand sanitizer and face masks and elections and often-talked-of "craziness" of 2020 - and really consider how this year impacted you.  And from there, I hope you feel energized and encouraged about all that's ahead.
