The Lily Challenge

Here is Christi's Facebook post introducing our new commitment for this year.  We're so excited for the memories we're going to make. We already completed experience number one! Check out the website:
Happy New Year's Eve! I have something fun to share! Our kids have been asking (begging) for years to have a vlog. I keep coming up with all the reasons we shouldn't, but they have persisted. And if you know Sophi, you know she is particularly insistent. (; In the meantime, our family sat down months ago and decided that we needed to use our time more wisely (ie, stop being glued to our screens so much). After lots of discussion, we came up with a fun idea that helped with both problems. We brainstormed 100 experiences we wanted to have during 2019 (starts tomorrow!) and decided to make a vlog of sorts (youtube channel/website/whatever you want to call it) to help us stay motivated and share the fun. We're calling it the "Lily Challenge" and the kids would love if you want to follow along, or have your kids follow along. Even better, you can create your own Lily Challenge-- a list of experiences you want to have this next year. If you do, tag us or let us know so we can follow your journey too!!
You can read more about it and see our intro video on our new website (still needs some tweaks) at #lilychallenge#liveintentionally #2019goals #happynewyear


  1. I couldn't see a way to comment on your Lily Challenge site, but the first challenge done looks like it was great! I am impressed with the costumes and creativity. Fun!

  2. It's an AWESOME challenge! I saw Mrs Green's post, and I organized my parents and siblings to play a game (inspired from your challenge): the rules are that you cannot say something bad about a person, only the parents (or the older siblings if no parent is available) can reprimand someone who made a mistake and to spend the least time on our screens as possible. You could try it as a challenge if you want! :)

  3. I really love this idea! And how you have executed it. It's very inspiring. You have an amazing family, I'm overwhelmed with 3 kids, you truly have a generous heart.

  4. This is my first visit to your web journal! We are a group of volunteers and new activities in the same specialty. Website gave us helpful data to work.


Thank you for your comment! It will be reviewed and posted shortly.
