Episode 11: The Eagle and the Arrow

Erin shares her “word” for 2019, as well as the story and metaphors behind it that mean so much to her, (even through she’s slightly embarrassed by the word itself.) We also have some news about Tend Podcast and Yet Untold toward the end.

New episodes of Tend Podcast will return on February 5th!

Keep up with updates on the course Erin is creating by subscribing to the newsletter.

Word of the Year for 2019!


Like the Eagle, I will catch the updrafts and soar on outstretched wings.

Like the Arrow, I will fly straight and hit the mark set before me.

Neither of these I will attain by my power, but his only.

Verse of the Year:

Isaiah 40:31

but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

If you want to find your own word for the year and need a little guidance, here are a few helpful resources.

The ladies over at the Abiding Together podcast just published their episode on this and shared some tips.

Jenifer Fulwiler created a “Word of the Year generator.”

And I wrote a little bit more about it on the blog.
