As 2014 is coming to a close, I’m reflecting back on the year.
Personally, 2014 was a pretty great year. We did a lot of traveling as a family, and just as adults. We expanded Ty’s business (see here and here), started kindergarten, and continued working with Paladin Sports Outreach, an organization so very dear to our heart.
But as a blogger, this was a year of growth, learning, and connecting. We’ve doubled readers, expanded some ideas and pruned others, and I’ve started getting much more connected with you all on Facebook. I’ve got some good plans for 2015 already, and I’m so excited about what’s to come around here!
So looking back on the year, I’m reposting the three top read posts of 2014. Rather than copying and pasting the whole article, I am just linking it back to the original post. I hope that these bless you again as much as they did me when I reread them.
I’m blessed to have you here, and I hope that God is blessing you in return with all of the things He’s doing in this little corner of the blogosphere.
Check back tomorrow for another popular post from 2014!
The third most read post of the year was a post that I did as part of a blog tour. It was one of those posts that literally flew from my fingers to the keys. As I remembered that moment up on the balance beam, I was transported back in time. The words flowed freely, and the emotion in the post affected me so deeply for a few weeks. I was so glad to see that so many of you were affected by it as deeply as I was. Not only was it one of the most read posts and most shared posts, but it was one of the posts that I received the most feedback from, also.
I hope that reading this post, whether it’s your first time or you’re back for a second helping, reminds you in this new year to choose courage. This is a time to start over, change your mindset or your habits, to try something scary and new. My wish for you is that you would do each of those things with such courage and strength!
