A Look Back at 2012

31 Dec
Looking back at what I’ve written in the past year 
and am feeling so incredibly blessed.
Not by what I’ve written, but by you all sharing
your hearts in response to my heart on the page.
I am so thankful for each one of you who 
have read, responded to, and shared my words.
You all are a treasured gift.

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.
Philippians 1:3

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite posts from the past year with you.

In January, I shared about God calling me to be still with Him. 

In February, I shared about exchanging my weakness for His strength.

In March, I shared about what Family Ministry looks like in our own homes.

In April, I shared about moments with my boys that taught me more about God.

In May, I shared about a time that I have my deepest conversations with God.

In June, I shared about making the most of every moment we have with our children.

In July, I shared truths from The Lord’s Prayer to teach our children.

In August, I shared about standing on the promise of provision from God.

In September, I joined other bloggers in writing a letter to myself as a teenager. 
This was by far the most challenging post I wrote all year and is still the hardest for me to read. It is the post that had both positive and negative responses, but through it all I knew it had to be shared.
If it touched one person’s life, then it was all worth it.

In October, I shared about our longing to be welcomed and the power of those words.

In October, I also shared about one of my biggest fears and how God is bigger.

In November, I shared about celebrating 20 years married to my warrior.

In November, I also shared about the power of my Abba answering a prayer.

In December, I shared about God breaking my heart and joining The Exodus Road team.

In December, I also shared a letter of encouragement written to the undercover investigators of The Exodus Road and invited you to write one as well.

Again I want to thank you all.

Thank you for joining me here and allowing me 
to share my heart and sharing yours right back. 
I am looking forward to what God has 
in store for us in the coming year together.

Blessings,
Wendy
