Jane - how about we split the difference and say 8 weeks? What does that take us to?

*be right back*

Okay - 8 weeks takes us to July 22. 7 weeks to July 15. We could do 6 weeks to July 8, and then another 7 weeks until the end of August. Does that sound okay?

What does everyone else think?

I'm really looking forward to this summer challenge. I know things I need to grow stronger in. That is what I will br working on. Are we suppose to do any certain things otherthan praying to the Holy Spirit? I have no clue other than what I think it is. I know we have the Novena starting up next week. Is this challenge going to have anything to do with studying the Holy Scriptures. I haven't been involved in these things before, so I want to be prepared, Jane. I'll be looking for what you will have written on this subject. Sunday is coming fast! emoticon

emoticon great enthusiasm everyone! Can't wait for Sunday!

How long do we want this challenge to be? I'm thinking it should be at least 6 weeks. I'm willing to do it up to 12 weeks, so that it lasts most of the summer.

However, 12 weeks is a bit long and we may lose people and/or enthusiasm. Plus, there is the matter of summer vacations.

If you have strong feeling preferences about the length of the challenge, post them here. For now, it will be at least 6 weeks long.

I am planning to start a new summertime challenge on Sunday! Pentecost Sunday!

We will invoke the Holy Spirit to help us develop healthy summer habits by making small, incremental changes. The specific change will be up to the individual, so it could be a physical, emotional, or spiritual change (or two).

We need to remind ourselves that it can take up to 6 weeks to establish a new habit, often replacing an unhealthy habit with a healthy one.

I will provide examples of the types of changes members can make during this challenge. The focus will be on small, sustained change so that the habit is ingrained by the end of the summer.

Stay tuned for details, but meantime, start thinking about which healthy habit or two you'd like to develop or improve. emoticon
