Leah @ As We Walk Along the RoadLooking Back: Favorite Blog Posts of 2013

As I’ve looked back over 2013, I think it’s fun to see which posts were the most popular to others and which posts I really enjoyed.


Chris @ Campfires and Cleats Top 13 and Most Posts of 2013

I actually found it hard to choose only 13 because each post has become a piece of my heart. I remember what I felt as I wrote each and I recall the interactions with you, my readers.


Tess @ Circling Through This LifeSaying Good-bye to 2013

I’ve decided to take a photo tour of the year! Sharing pictures as highlights from 2013.


Heather @ Thrift SchoolingAll Things Work Together

I would do it all over again. Last year that is. Sure maybe some curve balls where thrown at me but if the question comes up this year, “so…are you still homeschooling?” The answer is an enthusiastic, resounding, YES!


Sarah @ My Joy-Filled LifeTop Posts of 2013

I originally wasn’t going to do a ‘Top Posts’ post, but I was really enjoying reading all my fellow bloggers’ ‘Top Post’ posts, that I thought it would be fun to look back at 2013, and see what all of you enjoyed reading.


Kristi @ The Potter’s Hand Academy2013 in Review

Jill @ Enchanted Homeschooling MomSkating Into 2014: The Best Posts on Enchanted Homeschooling Mom from 2013

 As this year comes to a close you will find me skating, quite literally, my way into the year 2014. I wanted to take a moment to share with all of you some of my favorite posts from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom over the 2013 year.


Lexi @ Lextin AcademySurviving 2013

The past year was not what I expected or what I had planned but God knew right where I would be and He knew how to bring me through. I think my word for 2013 is sovereign. I don’t always understand my circumstances and I don’t always find joy but I have faith.


Gwen @ Tolivers to TexasBest Of, Worst Of

With all the happy times and sad times of 2013, it did make me consider one thing — what is God’s evaluation of my life in 2013? Am I more faithful to Him than I was twelve months ago? Have I become more diligent and loving in my walk with Him? Or is this a year that He would say I did little to count for eternity?


Joelle @ Homeschooling for His GloryWhere Did 2013 Go?

Overall, 2013 has been a good, somewhat quiet year (though not without its challenges). So thankful to God for His unfailing faithfulness!


Rebecca @ RaventhreadsNo Longer Ruled by Fear

Despite the fact that I had a strong head knowledge that home was not the same as school and that a lot of things that are important at school are not important at home, I found myself ruled by the fear that Firecracker would become further behind. I wanted to let the Lord lead our homeschool, but I was terrified about how that would look in the eyes of those around me and in the eyes of those that I love.

Jen @ Happy Little Homemaker2013 Blessings

{The internet} tends to be my outlet for help since I don’t have any nearby that I can call to ask or vent :). That being said, we were so very blessed last year and so when the topic for this week’s blog hop was 2013 In Review, I decided to make it about our blessings.

Erin @ For Him and My FamilyA Year in Reflection

We tend to take time to reflect on our days or years gone by, but how much time do we spend reflecting on the year past before we start the year to come?


Cristi @ Through the Calm and Through the StormSome Real Moments of 2013

Kym @ Homeschool Coffee BreakHomeschooling Highlights from 2013

For me, this blog is a record of our homeschool adventures. The record that goes beyond just the grades and transcripts and hours logged.

Victoria @ Homemaking with HeartLooking Back and Looking Forward: 1000 Gifts

My word for the 2013 year: the year of joy. I had my ‘joy dares’ in hand, ready and eager to chronicle our joy gifts from the Father. As the year wore on, maintaining my place of joy became much more difficult than I could have ever anticipated.

A mission trip to India, our first year on the Schoolhouse Review Crew, homeschooling a middle-schooler for the first time. This was a monumental year for our family. Here are some of the posts you liked best.


Karen @ My Harbor Lights2013 Left Its Mark

Looking back at 2013 I can’t believe all the changes that occurred and how they will leave a lasting impact on all our lives as we move into 2014. It seemed liked every month brought about more changes and adjustments. I hope that as we begin 2014 we are reaching a place of stability and now we can work on making the changes work and fine tuning our adjustments.

Rebekah @ There Will Be a $5 Charge for WhiningLessons from 2013

I’ve learned a few things in my ‘somethingsomething’ years on the earth. One of the most important is to try and glean something from even the most dismal or trying failures and events. You know the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed”….Well. The least you can do is have fun in the trying.


Nicole @ Schooling in the SunBest Posts of 2013

It’s that time of year again–when we all start to reminisce about the year we are about to leave behind and plan for the wonderful year that is ahead (and ALL of the things we’re going to do to make it the Best. Year. Ever!)

Dusty @ To the Moon and BackA Year of Growth

In the last year, there have been several changes in my life. Some changes were big, some were small, but they all have had a big impact on me. Growth and change came in several fashions and as I look back, I can’t help but marvel at them all.

Margaret @ Creative Madness MamaLooking Back at 2013

Ellen @ Grace Tells Another StoryLooking Back ~ 2013 in Reflection

One of the ways that I believe you can make each year better, more productive, more enjoyable…more everything (or sometimes, less of certain things)…is to take some time to reflect..to mentally “wrap up” the year in question.


Marcy @ Ben and MeA Month-to-Month Look Back at 2013
