Very cool, Sarah! I am inspired. I may have to try this!

Hey Sarah,

Great idea for a list. I'm doing a lot of "self-improvement" stuff right now myself as I'm leading a youth small group Bible study at church and leading our First Place group at church, too. Did you use some software or site to make this list or just spitball it yourself?
Also, what's a "pink sheep" ? Totally love your banner, too...Did Matt help you pick that out? LOL!
