How Would You Rate YOUR 2016? Here’s Mine.

Another year has passed; a new one has begun. As you reflect on 2016—on a scale of 1 to 10—how would you rate your 2016?

Here’s mine.

On a scale of 1 to ten I would rate my 2016,


Here’s why.

  • My first grandchild was born. I’m finding out there’s nothing better than being a grandparent.
  • I transitioned out of my role as a senior pastor for these past thirty-three years into my new role as a speaker, trainer, author, and coach. There’s nothing like getting up every morning and spending my day focused on what I’m most passionate about and what I believe is my greatest contribution.
  • In my transition of roles (noted above), I also moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota, back to Cleveland, Ohio to be close to most of my family and some long-held friends and colleagues. There’s nothing like being at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.  Read: Why I Moved Back To Cleveland, Ohio and Why You Should Even Care
  • In the fall of 2016 I started an online Spiritual Growth Membership Community. It’s specifically designed to help people in very clear, easy, and practical ways continue to grow spiritually. I feel like my whole life has been preparing me for this moment!

  • I made significant progress on my third book, Living Like Your Leaving: A Practical Path To A Purposeful Life. I’m really excited about this book.
  • I turned 60! Not as crazy about this milestone as some of my other ones, but I know I’m doing what I was designed to do and focused on doing the most productive and purposeful things in this third-quarter season of my life and ministry.  Read: I Turned 60!

So that’s mine.  How about yours? 

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your 2016?

  1. Hi Kenny,
    I would rate my year as an 8. Since my husband died in Apr. 2014, being a widow is lonely at times, but I have many friends and a loving family that keeps me active! This year I was treated to a conference for the City Mission at the world class resort, the Greenbrier, in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. Another new experience was taking Square Dancing lessons at the senior ctr., starting in Sept..
    The Lord provided me with a little PT care-giving job for some extra spending money, and I volunteer at a Christian Coffee House! I am a blessed woman
