As I was editing a recent podcast and creating the blog post for the episode, it dawned on me that over the past year + of blogging, I have over 100 posts! It is so fun to see the change in my writing style and even the spiritual change that has occurred in this past year. My “lifestyle” blog posts are becoming fewer as my focus has shifted more towards sharing the Lord and people’s testimonies. When I post, I want it to be more about God than about Friday Favorites. 😉 It is still fun to read those lifestyle blog posts and I will still occasionally post them (like today!), but the majority of my posts in recent months have dramatically changed.
So I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the TOP TEN posts that YOU have liked the most (based on the number of visitors/readers via WordPress) AND the TOP FIVE podcast episodes via Anchor).
Thank you for being here for over 100 blog posts and for always supporting, sharing, and commenting. I so appreciate you!
Don’t forget to tune in next week for another podcast that will air on Tuesday! Make sure to subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts:

These fat bombs are DA’ BOMB! Haha! No, seriously, they are the perfect sweet treat but also pack a protein punch!
