In this first month with your new word, here are some questions to ask yourself.


Where have you already seen your word this year? Where can you intentionally place it so you will be reminded of it more often?

I should be keeping count; I may have heard CURIOSITY used somewhere every single day so far. It’s obviously a very popular word in our times.

I have placed it on the mirror of my bedroom dresser:


What does your word look like to you? Take a photo or draw a picture or create a graphic to visualize your word.

I created a graphic like this because it’s a little outside the lines, a little messy, just like CURIOSITY can be.

Curiosity - One Word 2024


Why did you choose this word? Write out your answer and/or tell at least one other person. If you haven’t already, print and fill out this simple 2-page worksheet to help clarify your word

I chose CURIOSITY because I want to wonder more, to ask better questions, and to create deeper connections.

    My one word for 2024 is reconcile (or some derivative) as found in 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (ESV). This word is important for me to remember as I live out my faith and love others as Christ does.

  2. Trudy

    Even though I don’t pick a word anymore, Lisa, I still love following how you challenge and encourage those who do to dive deeper. 🙂 Love and blessings to you!

    I subscribed to your blog a year or so ago and today it popped into my spam folder-for the first time ever! Hopefully the posts will keep coming so I can pop over when you post 🙂 I did not do a word for this year. I hope you are doing well. Cindy

      Well, who can explain the internet? Certainly not me! ha. I’m always amazed when my own blog post from my own email address will still sometimes end up in my spam folder instead of my inbox. 🙂 Glad to reconnect with you, Cindy.

    I haven’t had a One Word for several years now, but this year I definitely have one. I’ve not done any posts about it per se, I don’t believe so I can’t link a post. However, I can share that when I was reading in Romans 12 toward the end of 2023, the Lord impressed on my heart to memorize that chapter. It deals a lot with pride and humility…extreme opposites. And then the word KIND kept popping up everywhere, which I also see as an opposite of pride. I am learning that being KIND is more than just an outward act of the will…it begins in the heart attitude. And, let’s just say that I have a long way to go. It will prove to be an interesting year as I walk this path with KIND.

      I’m excited about your year with KIND, Dianna! I already view you as an especially kind human being! The opposites of pride and humility is a full lesson in itself. I’m constantly needing to be schooled in it in my everyday life.

  5. Lisa Blair

    Curiosity is going to be such a fun word for you, Lisa! Permission granted to explore learning, food, culture, creativity, etc. I’m enjoying cultivate and all it allows me to nurture in my life thus far in 2024.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      I see a lot of overlap between our two words, Lisa! (…aside from them both starting with CU, ha). I look forward to what we’ll discover with curiosity and cultivation this year.

    I love this approach to the WOTY and I’m definitely going to take your advice. I especially like ‘what does your WOTY look like?’. My WOTY is Freedom so I’ll put my thinking cap on and come up with a visual. Thanks for joining us for #WBOYC and stay Curious xx

  7. Donna Connolly

    Hi, Lisa – Thank you for linking up with us. ‘Curiosity’ is a terrific WOTY. I agree that to wonder more, to ask better questions, and to create deeper connections makes a huge and positive difference. Wishing you a wonderful February ahead!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Thanks, Donna. I’m looking forward to seeing where curiosity will take me this year. I’m sure it won’t be all sunshine and rainbows, but I want to be open to wherever it will lead.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Yes, I feel like all of our words can really be a bit messier than we expect them to be. Our Plan As rarely (if ever!) pan out exactly like we think they will. 🙂

  8. Debbie Harris

    Hi Lisa, those questions are such a good way of looking at our WOTY. Mine is thrive and I’ve added my post to the linkup. I’m seeing it a few places already!
    Your responses were great and I look forward to see how Curiosity plays out for you this year. Thanks for joining us for #WBOYC

    Lisa, Thank you for joining us on our Grace & Truth Link-Up and sharing your valuable contribution to our community! I will proudly feature it on my Pinterest board for Grace & Truth Featured Posts. You can see your feature here—
    We have had some changes to our link-up. You can see all of them here.

    I love that image of your word by your bed post, Lisa. I’m looking to do something similar with my word – even thinking of making a few stickers to put all over!
    Thank you for your inspiration and all the work you put in to help us stay in touch with our word!

  11. Cheryl

    I love your website and really appreciate all the help you give us to explore our WOTY. I will try to create a graphic to post someplace in my house that I will see it. (I love yours) I do put some pictures and references about my word “flow” in my bullet journal and write about it in my blog. I would like to share my blog and read others but I can’t seem to find where to post it.
