The new year is almost here!
Last week I shared the Top 10 “Top 10 Tuesday” posts of 2014. Today I thought I’d share the Top 10 posts overall on this blog for 2014.
Some were written this year; and some are still popular years later.
And the most popular post of all time wasn’t even written by me!
Here they are:
1. Why I Didn’t Rebel
My 19-year-old daughter wrote this post in 15 minutes when she was bored in stats class, and it’s been read over a half million times this year. Wow!
She shares what she thinks my husband and I did to create a family atmosphere where rebellion was less likely to happen. Of course, there are no guarantees, but there are trends. And this is what she’s come up with.
2. 50 Most Important Bible Verses to Memorize
I wrote this list up three years ago, and it’s gone crazy since!
If you’ve ever wanted to memorize more Bible verses, but you don’t know where to start, this can help. And it’s a great time of year to jump in! One verse a week in 2015–with 2 weeks off. You can do it!
3. Stocking Stuffers for Your Husband
Back in 2012 I thought it would be a good idea to come up with some stocking stuffer ideas for men.
Since then, I keep updating it with ideas that readers send me or with neat things I see on Amazon.
If you didn’t use it this Christmas, pin it for next Christmas! Some neat stuff in there…
4. 16 Ways to Flirt with Your Husband
Flirting never gets old!
But a marriage without flirting gets stale really fast.
Check out these ideas, which were originally part of my 29 Days to Great Sex series!
5. My Husband Doesn’t Want to Make Love
When I wrote my 29 Days to Great Sex series, I had a number of readers say, “I’d love to try this, but my husband never wants sex!” So I wrote a follow-up series on what to do when your husband has no sex drive.
And now that series has become one of the most popular on the blog. In fact, many people who read this blog arrived here with exactly that problem.
You can start reading that 4-part series here.
6. The Top 10 Effects of Porn on Your Marriage
Here’s another post that was actually written in 2014! And it kind of goes along with the above post about men losing their libido.
It’s all interconnected.
Check out what porn does. It’s not harmless, and we need to spread the word!
And remember: If you sign up with Covenant Eyes before midnight on December 31, you’ll get 2 months of protection online free! It’s accountability and filtering (if you choose to use the filtering). Protect your kids, and keep temptation at bay for the adults in the house, too.

It’s nice to see this post on the list, since I just finished the manuscript for my book based on it–9 Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage.
