Personal Life Goals and Relationship Criteria

After discussing personal goals and relationship criteria with a friend of mine, I thought it would be very beneficial if I wrote these down. For one it would get me thinking about where I want to go in life and it would serve as a reminder for when I get off track or seem to forget where I was planning on going. So, here is where I’m thinking things should be heading in my life.Let me know what you think. What am I missing? Are there any areas where I am off track? If you haven’t done this yourself, you might want to take a few minutes (hours, days) to think about this so your life has some direction. Also, reading The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren might provide some insight. Take 40 of your 2,550,000 days on earth to make each of those days have some meaning.

The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel

The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity by Lee Strobel is a fantastic read. The book attempts to provide insight into eight objections to the Christian faith. The book addresses each of the eight issues with the insight of experts in each area. The experts are Christians although most of them were atheistic for a portion of their lives. Strobel does a good job at providing insight to the objections in the book, but he certainly does not refute any argument completely.

The Book of Romance by Tommy Nelson

I recently finished reading The Book of Romance by Tommy Nelson. I thoroughly enjoyed this book all the way through. I know that I am horribly unromantic and really know how to mess up dating relationships. That was my main motivation for reading this book – I want to learn how to not mess up my next dating relationship (if there is one – I hope there will be). I want to treat the next girl I date the best I can and foster the best relationship possible and not have to learn everything the hard way.When reading the book I highlighted aspects that I felt were relevant to me. I have compiled those excerpts here for all. I recommend reading the book yourself. Many of these thoughts may be disjointed, but the purpose is for this to act as a reminder for me in my own relationships.
