It’s become an annual tradition to compile a list of the most popular posts from my blog in the past year. It’s always interesting to see which posts get passed around the internet. I hope these posts were helpful to readers, made some people think, and most importantly, glorified Jesus. Thanks so much for reading and for sharing my stuff!
