The Top 10 Posts of 2017

Looking back over the year is a wonderful way to prepare for the upcoming year. What were the victories? What were lessons learned?

As a writer, I spend loads of time writing and editing, but I don’t often take time to look back and enjoy what I’ve written over the past year.

As I look back over the year, I found some of my favorites.

My favorite posts for 2017

January: The Power of Decluttering: The Day I Found $35 and My New Office. The choice to make room for an office in my closet was one of the best choices I made in 2017.

Having a space to call my own continues to encourage me to write, create, and work toward my dreams.

February: Dear Tired Mom. As my children grow older, the challenges change. Even so, it’s easy to grow weary as a mom. I need the prayer of a tired mom.

March:10 Things You Should Abandon Right Now. #6 is an area that needs constant pruning.

April: Circle with Disney: First Impressions. I’m very happy we bought Circle. It helps us have conversations about limitations and negotiate boundaries. Plus, I’ve created an easy way to limit myself on screen time. It’s so easy to get sucked in and lose track of time, Circle cuts me off.

May: Life Hurts: How gratitude transformed me.  Gratitude continues to be a powerful force in my life. I must consciously choose gratitude, but it’s well worth the effort.

June: 3 Keys to Make Your Husband Awesome My husband is awesome. I know it through and through, but I didn’t always think that way. Over twenty years of marriage, and plenty of God’s grace, has helped me grow.

July: Parenting a Picky Eater (and a day I’ll never forget) I still laugh at that story.

August: When admitting we’re lost is the hardest step Pride blocks us from receiving the help we need.

September: I accepted a life The choices we make have impact on the direction of our lives.

October: This is 45. My Story This is how God has grown me in 45 years. The picture with my kids is one of my favorites.

November: How STEM Play Grows a Child’s Future (and a giveaway) My favorite part about this post is all the great creations Bear made. I had a blast looking back over the years and reveling in his awesome builds.

December: Near God Safe, Near God Risk Following God brings safety and risk.

As we look toward 2018, may we push forward to risk as God calls us to step out.

Wow. I enjoyed looking over some of my favorite posts from 2016. (I’m thankful for the Five Minute Friday prompts that directed my Friday posts.)

And now for…

The Top 10 Posts of 2017


  1. The Plan (round two): Surprising results

  2. Book Review: Father Cry by Billy Wilson The importance of being a spiritual father (or mother) stands today. God can use all parts of our story for his glory.
  3. The Good Shepherd This devotional is on John 10. The Good Shepherd is what Jesus calls himself. Take time to consider all that the name means. (God Quotes was my original phrase for devotionals.)
  4. Sneaker Health: Lyn-Genet Plan Review I have used the Lyn-Genet Plan multiple times and have always seen a difference in my health.
  5. God Quotes: Happy Mother’s Day, Grandma My grandmother passed away many years ago, but Revelation 21 is a great comfort.
  6. Have Fun Reading Music with this Game App: Staff Wars My guitar students love this game. What’s better than exploding notes, right?
  7. Picture of the week: Brain Hat We still have the Brain Hat in our house.  My youngest learned a bit about the brain last year.
  8. ATracker App: Get Track of Your Time. Tracking how you use time can be helpful in awareness.
  9. God Quotes: Do You Know These 3 Keys to Wisdom? Wisdom is found in God. As 2018 begins, let’s look to Him for how we ought to live.

  10. How STEM Play Grows a Child’s Future (and a giveaway). This post on STEM play wasn’t just a favorite of mine.
