BodieQuirk.com is the home for everything I want to share that is not Bible-related. It has my full archive of Life Plans, a Blog that contains my thoughts, reflections and tutorials over the years. It is the legacy of everything that I have learned and loved about life made available for others to enjoy and benefit from. Apart from my Life Plan and Blog, it contains a full timeline of our lives. All photos and videos from our life have been uploaded and organized so that we can go back to any point in our lives to reflect and reminisce on God’s goodness in our story. My friends and family are incredibly blessed to be able to find and enjoy our life’s memories there. My site is up-to-date and I am great about make sure it always has fresh content. The tools that drive my creativity are essential to me and I am an expert at using them. These software applications are incredible tools that help me advance the kingdom of God through my website. Whether it is WordPress, Final Cut Pro, Lightroom or any other essential app, I am continually learning and improving my skills to become better. My Apple devices and my mastery of these creative apps that I love allow me to reach people and create things that I could never do on my own, and thus bless God and others. Creativity is an essential outlet for my soul, and every week I get quality time work on creative projects that bring me joy.
Big Goal for This Year
To organize all of my photo and video content on BodieQuirk.com and publish 12 blog posts this year.
READY AND EXCITED. Now that my website has been moved over to GoDaddy and things have significantly calmed down at home (I have an office again!) I am really ready to work on my photos, videos and blog again. My website and creative apps have been long neglected, but I am excited that some routine is returning to my life again and I will have some time and space to get working on creative things again. It really didn’t happen at all over the last season, but I feel a focus, excitement and readiness now that I haven’t felt at all last season. I need some time just to survey all that needs to happen, but I am already beginning to make progress as this year begins.
Staying on Track and Celebrating Progress
NOPE. BodieQuirk.com made no progress last season at all as it was impossible to have any kind of protected creative time amidst the chaos of the home remodel. It is definitely the account that needs the most work as we go into Season 1. I still need to add my Life Plan archives to the site as well as spend some serious time cleaning up my photos and videos so we can begin to enjoy them again! I was hoping to get to processing at least some photos, but I just couldn’t get to it.
Block off full days to assess and work on my photos, videos and creative tools. Once I develop a plan, protect time weekly to work on the next actions that I have determined. I need to build a routine that allows me protected time to work on creative projects each week.

Block out two weekends in January to just work on creative projects and systems, then schedule time each week to make sure to work on them regularly

Lord, thank you for the tools and apps that help me to be creative, help me to feel like I am stewarding them well and blessing others with them
