Top Candid Posts from 2020
Can you believe this crazy year is coming to a close?
Does anyone else want to dance a little jig or say an “amen”?
2021 kicks off early Friday morning, but before we leave 2020 in the past, we wanted to share some of our favorite posts from the year. Because 2020 wasn’t all bad.
Yes we struggled, but we also grew.
We experienced ups and downs, but we knew we were never alone.
Our Top Posts From 2020
I don’t know where today finds you, but here are a few of our favorite Candid posts from 2020. There wasn’t an exact algorithm we used to choose the posts this year, but we looked at a variety of aspects and went from there.
Here are just a few of the things we looked at:
- Post response: Comments, shares, emails, people who stopped us on the street to comment about it (it happens).
- Page views: Some of the posts on our website bring a ton of traffic our way. They might never get a comment, and it doesn’t look they are getting shared, but somewhere somehow, they are getting seen and resonating with other Christian women.
- And last, but not least, the posts that impacted us the most. Some of the posts we have written are so special to our own hearts. Or to the hearts of the other Candid Gals. And we wanted to make sure to include some of those.
I also want to mention that the Candidly Christian ministry wouldn’t be possible without you. Every time you share a post, you help us shine the spotlight on Jesus. Every Candid Gal writes from her heart, but without you, our message is muzzled. Thank you for sharing our message of Jesus’ love.Check out our top Candid posts from 2020…. Click To Tweet
Our goal was to include one post from each of our current Candid Gals and one guest blogger. We’ve had so many encouraging posts this year, all of them written by talented authors who love Jesus. We are highlighting posts written and published in 2020 and the posts are listed in alphabetical order by the first name of the Candid Gals who wrote them.
I hope you enjoy seeing these posts again just as much as we enjoyed going back through them.
