After an unprecedented (!!) 2020 and 2021, I feel like we finally got to a reasonable “new normal” in 2022. What do you think? Although there were major issues to navigate as a society (anxiety, anyone?) and Covid was still playing “gotcha” (it got me for 10 days in October), it felt as if we could all take a collective breath of relief in some ways. For us, in-person speaking events started back up again in earnest this year, and oh how good it was to gather together! And our team was extra busy as we finalized work on our big three-year research project and book on S-E-X! Secrets of Sex and Marriage, co-authored by Dr. Michael Sytsma, releases February 7, 2023 and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with everyone. We are also excited to finalize the manuscript on my newest devotional in the Find Series called Find Hope, which will release next fall.
It has become a late-December tradition for us to share the most popular blog posts from the year so you can catch up on posts you may have missed, especially the ones that resonated with so many people.
As is often the case, the majority of these Top Ten blog posts are marriage-focused. If you haven’t seen these articles (as well as many other resources), my team and I hope these give you encouragement and practical steps to grow your relationship, solve problems, and thrive as a couple. Even beyond marriage, we hope these help you thrive in life!
So without further ado, here are the Top Ten Blog Posts from 2022:
