Happy Holidays!! As of today, we are one week away from New Year’s Day!! I still have some items I’m preparing for the celebration for my Vision Board Party Ideas theme.
As a little girl I remember my church would come up with a theme for the new year! For example, “2008 will be Great” and such. As I became an adult, I kept the tradition going, coming up with a creative and positive themes for the new year.
Two scriptures that have always helped me have a vision are:
- Habakkuk 2:2 – And the Lord answered me, and said Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
- Proverbs 29:18 – Where there is no vision, the people perish.
So, you’re probably wondering “What is a vision board party?”
Vison Board Party Ideas Explained
A vision board party is an event where you invite family and friends to create a board with all of their hopes, dreams, and visions for their life.
I remember writing my first vision list on a piece of paper in 2009. At the time, I wrote a list of 5 things on a piece of paper that I desired that would manifest as a vision for my life. I love to tell the story because all of things on the list have happened except for one. This keeps my faith and hope. (HOPE= Having Only Positive Expectations)
I hosted my first vision board party in 2019 for the coming year of 2020. My theme was: I See Miracles.
