Top Five of 2013

Welcome back!  Oh, yes, I have been the one kind of MIA, right?!  Sorry- but I knew you would understand.  You see, I have been spending a lot of needed quiet, and not so quiet, time with my family.
I have also been giving this blog a lot of thought.  You see, it takes up a lot of my time and I do not want it to be for nothing.  So I have been evaluating, planning and writing.  Setting goals, dreaming and more evaluating. 

 More of that to come on Friday!

But for now, I want to say thank you for your readership!  Thank you for your friendship!  Thank you for your messages of encouragement and the kind words you leave here and on my email!  They are ALL appreciated more than you can know.  

AND,  in looking back to see what you like to read here (part of all that evaluation stuff) I wanted to share with you Family, Faith, and Fridays' TOP Five posts for 2013.  If you didn't get a chance to read them then, I hope you will now...enjoy!

#1 Where Did Modesty Go?- This is actually the most popular post on this blog.  Funny, since it almost did not get written because of my fear of offending someone.  Just goes to show that when God speaks to you, you should listen!  Every. Single. Time!
#2 How Sin Rocked Our Week- Boy, this was a hard one!  Memories of this week still bring a heaviness to my heart which I cannot explain.
#3 Project Organize- The Fabric Stash- Oh, how I had fun with this series.  I would do it again, except that there is not much left.  haha  Threw it all away!  This was actually my daughter's brain child and one she still loves.
#4 What Are You Wearing?- Another "on my heart" posts!  We may not sometimes see it, but there are a lot of people out there still seeking to be modest!
#5 TOS Crew Review- EEME- A review!  Finally!  Did you know that was the whole purpose of starting this blog?  Really!  In case you haven't noticed, I am a independent reviewer and one of the companies I review for is The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.  It has been an amazing journey, one I will be blogging about in January, and I cannot speak more highly of it.  This particular company was one of our last reviews of the year and one we continue to work with, even though my review is long done.  If you are looking for some fun, Electrical Engineering projects for your kiddos, start here!  All my boys love it.



  1. What a great round up, thanks for sharing it!!

  2. I love your year in review :-) I also had a review post in the top five for the year on my blog. I love when that happens because then you know you did a good job for the vendor!

    1. You are right! In this case, easy to do, as the boys love anything with wires and electricity! :)

  3. I remember reading the modesty one when it first published. I had missed the other one. Love them! It's not about being frumpy but all about respect and not drawing UNnecessary attention to oneself. There are some young adults I'd like to sit down with and explain modesty.


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
