I have been so blessed this year by all the sweet comments, encouraging emails and small community of faithful followers. This has been quite a year for our family; we have been tested and we have been immeasurably blessed, I have journaled and posted some of my God encounters HERE.
2013 was also my first full year of homeschooling and I quickly realized I had a passion to share with others what our homeschool days and plans look like! This seems to have been your favorite part as some of the most read posts were all about home preschooling!
As the year quickly comes to an end I would love to re-cap just a few of the most popular posts of 2013!
Most frequently “Pinned” post on Pinterest…
I would have never imagined that when I set out to create a Food, Fitness and Human Body theme for my 4-year-old daughter it would be so well received by not only her but by the 3,000+ visitors that have stopped by to get some ideas for themselves on how to create this same great preschool theme at home!
Most Popular Series this year…
I set out this year on a homeschool journey that I shared with many of you. When I started homeschooling I struggled to find a place with the majority of the information I was looking for all in one place. How to get started, where to look first, what to buy, etc, etc, etc…In this series I hope that I did just that and it was the most read series this year! You can read How To: Begin Home Preschooling Part 1 and Part 2 HERE
First ever featured post on another blog!….
Again, when I set out to give my daughter a very Fancy Nancy Garden Tea Party and share it with all of you I had no idea it would be so well received and featured on Homeschool Creations (one of my favorite blogs!!!) You all loved the ideas and it continues to be a top “pinned” post on Pinterest!
Post with the most readers in a single day…
It had been on my heart for many months to share My Story of Abortion, when the time and the words finally came it was incredible. It was healing to write and oh so well received my many of you. Thank you so much for the encouraging comments and emails. Since writing my story of abortion I had the opportunity to share my story with other women and encourage and help women start their healing process!!
My favorite post of 2013…
I just love everything about this post, I love reading it and re-reading it because it’s such a beautiful story of such beautiful promises from our God! I hope to have more God encounters and revelations to share with you this year!
