Before the year 2017 closes I want to take a few moments to thank everyone who has supported this website. I appreciate all the likes, shares and just the fact that you took time to read. I hope it has been a blessing for you and will continue to be so in the years to come.
For me, the gap between December 31 and January 1 is huge. It’s a time to reflect on what went well and what didn’t. it’s a good time to look back and all that you’ve accomplished over the year and how you’ve grown. It’s also a good place to identify the things that could be improved on. For the past couple of years I have chosen a word to focus on - my word for both 2016 and 2017 was faith.
Have I learned how to be faithful? It’s still a work in progress. Over the past two years I’ve come to realize that faith grows in the little things. We’re not always going to have an ‘Abraham-why-don’t-you-sacrifice-you’re-only-son’ moment. But we will always have those ‘how-does-my-decision-reflect-Christ’ moments. The gift of faith is to keep choosing Christ even when there’s none there to see our sacrifice.
This year I’m using Lavendaire's 5 questions as a year end wrap up (you can find that post here.)
I encourage you to take some time to look to reflect on this year so that you can have the right mindset to go forward.
As we did in 2016, here are our seven favorite blog posts for 2017:

Who Is Your Hero? Everybody holds someone in high regard. It could be a person who sacrificed something for them. Or someone who has a lot of achievements.
