Have you ever considered getting an accountability partner, but had no idea what to discuss? This practical checklist covers physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and financial questions you can cover with your accountability partner during monthly meetings. It is not exhaustive, so feel free to add more. You know best which areas are struggles for you and where you need more encouragement.
If you meet with your accountability partner on a monthly basis, I suggest tackling no more than a few goals each month so you don’t get overwhelmed. Sometimes I chose one goal from each area, but other times I need to focus on a specific category more than others. That works. You drive where you need to grow so that you get the most from the experience.
What other things would you add? Please post your suggestions below. Thanks!

I'm so excited about this list. You've done a great job. As a Celebrate Recovery pastor, we talk about accountability partners all the time. I will be sharing this post on our CR Facebook page as a tool for accountability partners to use. Thank you.

The list can also be used as a personal checkup to see what areas to pray for with the Lord. I pray it blesses others.

Thank you for a well organized extensive list and a lot to draw from. Choosing priorities and sifting out the necessary, urgent, and “I’d like to do this but..” also adds to deciding where to start. Thank you for giving us a helpful working g document.

This list isn't exhausting, and not every question will apply to everyone. But it does help to have a starting point. I pray it blesses you.

What a great, and comprehensive list. Finding the right AP often takes some effort, but the results are worth the effort. Wonderful post Ms Joanna.

I pray everyone that wants an accountability partner gets a good one, and that people work out their own salvation with free and trembling before the Lord.

Great resource. I am printing this too.

Having a paper copy of something to check things off on makes things so much easier for tactile people like myself. I pray the list blesses you in many formats.

I believe time is a gift so I guess I would add in there about time as a gift and do we try to intentionally use it wisely.

Yes! God has given us the gift of time and are we using it for His glory. Great concept to add to the list. Most appreciated. I pray the list blesses you lots!
