If you watched Why 2016 Was Tough + My Focus Word For 2017, you know that last year was challenging for me personally, and I am focused on becoming more rooted in 2017. (If you didn’t watch that video, this post may not make a lot of sense!)

Today I’m sharing my September: Rooted video! It’s funny–it doesn’t feel like much has changed from January (when I launched this series) until now, but documenting my journey through these videos is a powerful reminder that I have changed so much! If there’s one thing I learned through therapy, it’s that the only things I have control over are my own thoughts, words, and actions. Though I’m in a place where I can’t change my zip code, I can’t change the fact that I don’t have a tribe, and I can’t change what our town does/doesn’t have, I can change my perspective…and I have! (Well, Jesus has.) How cool is that? God is ever-faithful and steady, and He’s walked me through every hardship of this year with love and grace. I have learned so much–I’m continually learning so much–and for that I am thankful.
Without further adieu, below is my September: Rooted video! You can watch it below or on YouTube here.
// How was your September? Are you making any progress on your 2017 word for the year or New Year’s resolution?
