And now, my top ten posts of 2015.
1. Do You Have a Really Good Man?
This post has been view over a half a million times. Something about this idea hit home with lots of us. The fact is that most of us have a good man, but we often fail to recognize it, letting imaginary characters from books and movies convince us that our man doesn’t measure up.
2. 2o Things I Want My Daughters to Understand About Being a Woman
This is the kind of list that I’d like to add to through the years. I think my favorites are 3 and 18.
3. It’s Okay for Kids to be Bored During Church
I was really surprised by how many people were interested in this idea. Lots of debate ensued about the merits of children’s worship versus family worship. Due to this post I was even invited to do a radio interview on a Pittsburgh radio station.
4. What Girls Should Demand
Looking back on this post now, I wonder if I was too hard on boys. I love boys. I really do. I’m raising one. But, I want girls to understand that they are so much more than sexual objects. And, I want boys to understand that, too.
5. Young Mothers, You Need Friends
I was a little surprised by the controversy this post generated. Apparently some women feel strongly that their husbands should be their best and only friend.
6. What Your Wife Wishes You Knew about Valentine’s Day (and Every Other Day of the Year)
It’s just true. Even though I had several wives try to deny it. 🙂
7. What I Learned About Pastors’ Wives (When I Became One)
Our church has taught me so many things about loving a pastor’s wife well. I wish I had been a more understanding and loving church member to my own pastors’ wives through the years.
8. 16 Secrets of One Happy Marriage
I wrote this one on our sixteenth wedding anniversary. I learn something new every day about my husband and our marriage. It’s part of the adventure!
9. Don’t Play Hard to Get in Marriage
Sex in marriage. It matters.
10. Sin is the Only Bad Word Left
On love and truth telling. And, also a crazy story about my friend Neil and the “dead” rattlesnake that bit him.
Happy New Year! And, thanks for reading!
